On such an aggressive market like the Internet, if you don´t really know what features WordPress needs (many more than simple HTML sites), it´s very easy to be cheated by false advertising and its “low cost”. That´s why many people end up ordering a web hosting account that doesn´t work for WordPress.
Another typical situation is when someone has already developed his project on WordPress.com or Blogger and wants to take a step forward with the professional solution of WordPress + his own quality but also affordable web hosting, such as our WordPress hosting service.
And we must not forget those who intend to set up an online shop (very frequent these days) with WordPress and plug-ins such as Woo Commerce or with a PHP application similar to WordPress like PrestaShop. If this is your case, in this article you will find the answers you are looking for.
Why do people choose the wrong hosting for WordPress?
The reason why many people order the wrong hosting for their WordPress blog is that they are not fully aware of the main issue to take into account.
Truth is that the load generated by a site based on static web pages (simple HTML files on the server) is completely different from the load of a PHP based site, that generates dynamic web pages; this is the case of WordPress or sites like Wikipedia.
Plus, these applications usually store their files on databases like MySQL, which adds even more load to the server.
In other words: an application like WordPress is much more demanding than a web with simple static pages.
WordPress.org is a VERY demanding platform. That is why it´s imperative to order a high quality hosting service, which does not necessarily means you have to spend a large amount of money.
It´s all about having good information and making the right decision.
If you have chosen the wrong hosting, you don´t need to worry. Thanks to plug-ins, it´s really easy and quick to migrate a WordPress blog from one server to another and we can help you during the whole process.
