Shared Web Hosting for WordPress – Beginners Guide!

If you are wandering for hosting solution for your website, you would surely have seen the term “shared hosting”. This will exactly suit your requirements if you are looking for a budget-friendly hosting solution. Among all the available hosting packages, shared hosting is thought to be the cheapest.

But shared hosting is not a good option for everyone, so before jumping to any decision make sure to know your requirements.

Now choosing the best WordPress hosting provider for your WordPress blog is itself a daunting task. WordPress provides a free hosting service for blogging. Also, there are many free blog hosting and web hosting providers. But there are limitations to your blog. i.e.

  • If you want to earn money through advertising or want to run other advertising programs such as Google AdSense you will not be able to do that.
  • You cannot upload external plugins and can’t customize it the way you want.
  • You could upload any external themes to make your website more attractive
  • Also, WordPress would have the full authority to suspend your blog without informing you prior.

So, I don’t think WordPress hosting can completely give you a hassle-free solution to get started. The main feature you need for your blog is the fantastico script installer, which must contain the latest version of WordPress.

If you are just a beginner and you don’t need much space and a large number of databases, shared web hosting can be a suitable option for your WordPress blog with your domain. You don’t need to be very much familiar with HTML coding to create your site, as there is an automatic installer of WordPress, that you will find within your hosting control panel. The hosting provider also helps you in these situations. As an example, in my company Hosting Raja, if any customer places a ticket to install the WordPress and make all the things ready for him, we will do it with pleasure and it will take just 5-10 minutes to ready the website for him.

If you are using any free hosting then you can only edit the image I header of your blog and can use selected themes. For, paid hosting, you have the total control on your website. You can add as desirable pages if you want. Also, you can edit the pages and template; add different add-ons from the WordPress control panel. You can also download some external themes and put them to your site.

If you wish to put Google-ad in your site, you can add that particular script from the file manager option in your control panel. You would have a choice to choose the place of your choice where ads can be placed. You also can optimize your site for the search engine to put a different Meta tag in the header file.  This is not the case in WordPress. In word press, it is only possible by using different related tags.

Hosting services helps to keep your website up and well on the internet. So, if you need full freedom for your site and keep control in your hand then shared hosting is the best option.
