Unless you are good with programming, you’ll probably need a content management system (CMS) software in order to create, edit and publish content on your site. One such software is WordPress. Others include joomla, magento, drupal, TYP03, and Open Cart among others.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is an open-source CMS with a program code that is freely accessible by anyone. The application is used to manage the creation and modification of digital content. It often comes at no licensing costs.
Despite there being a number of other options, WordPress is still the most popular CMS in the market.
Why do you need WordPress hosting?
If you’re looking to host your site on a WordPress platform, it’s definitely a good idea to choose a WordPress-specific host plan. For the software to run smoothly, the host server should support PHP version 7.3 or greater, MsQL version 5.6 or greater, MariaDB version 10.1 or greater and HTTPS.
While some shared hosting or dedicated server plans can support WordPress, a WordPress hosting plan will run your website smoother and faster. That’s because the hosting server is optimized to better meet WordPress’ security and performance. With one-click installs, it gets easier for you to get started with building your site.
