What is WordPress Hosting? Everything you need to know (2019)!


Hi! This is Topher with WinningWP. In
this video we’re going to talk about WordPress hosting, and how it’s different
from other kinds of hosting. You might be familiar with web hosting in general but
what makes WordPress hosting special? To answer that question I’m going to use a
brief analogy. A few years ago I visited Europe. As an American my plugs did not
fit into theirs and so I bought an adapter much like this one. Now this
adapter can take any kind of plug from anywhere in the world. The problem is
it’s big and it’s ugly. If you’re going someplace where your particular type of
electric plug is generally accepted then you don’t need something like that and
you end up with sleek systems like this. Single purpose, designed for what you
have. That’s what WordPress hosting is like. General hosting needs to work for
just about everything imaginable; different programming languages,
different methods of publishing, all kinds of different things.
Whereas WordPress hosting can be streamlined. So WordPress hosting is
specialized just for WordPress. But what does that mean? We’re looking here at a
popular WordPress hosting service and right here you can see they have
“Essential WordPress Features”. And under essential it comes with “free WordPress
install” and a “WordPress auto-updater”. Those two right there are very custom to
WordPress you won’t get that for something you’ve built custom. They
also offer a WordPress super cacher. And the super cacher is a tool that makes
your website go much much faster. The reason they can offer a super cacher is
that they know how WordPress is built. WordPress is a tool and they built a
tool that goes right next to it and accelerates it. If you had some other
kind of website they wouldn’t be able to do that. You’d be on your own for
building a tool to make your site go extra fast.
They also offer one click WordPress staging.
That means with a push of a button you can copy your website to another
temporary web address so that you can try things; you can install a new theme,
and plugins, and blow it up, and break it down, and delete it and no one cares. Your
main website is completely safe. And they’re able to do that because they
understand the way WordPress is built. They know exactly how the database
structure works, where all your files are, and they know everything about it
because it’s standardized. One other great feature of WordPress hosting is
support. Because you’re using a specific tool the support staff can be
specifically trained in that tool and so they don’t have to handle every possible
web question Under the Sun; they handle something that they’ve been trained in. And so you’re more likely to get good support that answers your specific
questions rather than being put on hold while they google the answer. So let’s
sum up. WordPress hosting is different because it’s specialized.
It’s built specifically for one tool; WordPress. And the reason that works is
that WordPress follows standards that allow for fine tuning. That site was able
to build a cache because WordPress has internal mechanisms that work with that
tool. Because the core of every WordPress site is the same the host can easily
build a very specialized server just for that. And lastly the support staff are
usually WordPress experts. They’re well trained and they can probably anticipate
the kinds of questions you’re likely to have. If you’d like to learn more about
