It’s an age-old question: what kind of hosting does
your website need? In this video, we’ll help you
choose between Shared or Managed WordPress Hosting.
Let’s go! Shared hosting is great for
small sites, blogs, or portfolios.
Consider going shared if: You’ve got a limited budget
and a “DIY” spirit. Shared hosting is cheaper, but,
general site maintenance tasks will be your job. You don’t expect large amounts
of web traffic. Shared hosting means sharing
your server with others so expect slowdowns if there’s a
spike in traffic. Alternatively, those with
mid-to-large business sites or e-commerce stores will
benefit from Managed WordPress hosting. Consider choosing managed if:
You have a bigger budget. Managed WordPress hosting costs
more upfront, but you will save in the long run with less
downtime. You can’t (or don’t want to)
perform site maintenance With Managed WordPress, your
web host will take care of maintenance tasks for you. You need WordPress-specific
support. Managed WordPress hosts typically
have on-staff WordPress experts so you’ll be covered when you
need it most. Want a deep dive into the
