What is web hosting?
In its most basic form, web hosting is a service that includes the hardware, software, and connectivity necessary to make websites accessible on the internet. You can find web hosting services in a variety of formats such as:
Different types of web hosting may also include other features like more robust server resources, improved speed and security, or premium support. You can find out more about the different types of web hosting services in our blog.
Some hosting providers go a step further with specialized hosting plans for websites running on different Content Management Systems (CMS) or to meet the needs of resource-heavy sites like large ecommerce stores.
Managed WordPress hosting
Managed WordPress hosting is one example of a specialized hosting service. This type of web hosting lets WordPress users offload the more technical aspects of hosting and managing their websites.
With managed WordPress hosting, the hosting provider typically takes care of:
- WordPress updates
- Backups and file recovery
- Ensuring uptime and reliability
- Server responsiveness for better website performance
Managed WordPress hosting plans vary between providers, but they often give you access to premium support and other extras like assistance with website migration, SSL certificates, and more.
Hosting in the cloud maximizes website uptime and reliability by storing website data on multiple servers.
Cloud hosts provide improved website performance and stability because the server load is balanced among different physical locations. This decentralization of data prevents overreliance on any single data center and ensures high-quality website performance.
Cloud hosting has quickly become one of the most popular options for hosting because of its administrative flexibility, speed, and security. Many high-volume websites use cloud hosting for its elastic nature and the ability to scale workload capacity up and down. More server resources or hardware can be easily allocated when a website experiences periods of high demand.
