Shared WordPress Hosting: What You Need To Know Before You Buy
Hey guys, this is Anna from 10Web a managed WordPress hosting powered by Google Cloud.. In this video, we will talk about choosing the best possible shared WordPress hosting platform, or maybe eventually, not even choosing one.
This is how the conversation will go. First, we’ll talk a little about what a shared hosting is its main advantages and disadvantages and who the typical customers of a shared WordPress hosting are and what you as a WordPress website owner, should and need to expect from your hosting provider.
Just so, we’re, clear and realistic about the expectations that you can have with your shared hosting provider. After that we will talk about shared hosting and its place in the age of fast development of technologies, and then we’ll discuss about the one alternative to shared hosting that you definitely do not know about, then we will talk about the two main WordPress hosting type options that you have and leave it to you to make the educated decision.
So let’s, get started, oh, and by the way down in the descriptions you will find timestamps so use them to skip to other parts of the video that you are more interested in. As you know, a website – and your website too, is a whole bunch of data that is stored on a server now in case of shared hosting it’s like being a part of a big commune.
You share your space on the server with a bunch of other websites who are basically like your neighbors, but if, in the case of a commune, you also get some benefits, for example, someone cooking a dinner and sharing it with you or maybe helping you fix your Sink. In case of shared hosting, all you get are mostly risks and no rewards at all.
Here’s why. The other websites that you’re sharing our space with can and often have faulty securities, so if any of them gets hacked or compromised in some way, all the other websites on the same server are also at risk of being affected, or a bad website may suddenly have a sudden surge of traffic Coming to their website, and this may slow down all the other websites and their performance on the same server, slowing it down to a turtle.
Speed is basically a very common complaint when it comes to website owners or managers that use shared hosting. Now, whenever you share a server with other websites, the speed of your website cannot be too fast, and the consistency of the uptime cannot being perfect as well, meaning that whenever a person visits your website, they may be tired of waiting for it to get fully loaded and just leave your website, or maybe the someone might click on your URL and find that your website has been crashed. Everything is very disappointing. Let’s, not even mention how important your website speed is for Google rankings now on top of the performance issues.
There are also many extra efforts that you need to make for your shared hosting platform. For example, you will need to install a third-party caching service. You will need to pay additional money in order to purchase a SSL certificate in order to make the connections more secure.
You’ll need to also install a staging plugin or to test the changes before making them go live then you will also need to scan the for vulnerabilities and malfunctioning plugins on your own from time to time and, most importantly, you will need to Limit yourself within the resources that are provided to you by your shared hosting company and this list goes on and on. I’m sure, everyone is sure to agree that shared hosting can be a whole different headache for website owners in many ways.
So you might be questioning yourself, why is it that people even eventually end up using shared hosting? What are the advantages of a shared hosting? The answer is pretty straightforward. The reason is that shared hostings are the cheapest possible hosting types that you can get for your WordPress website, the prices usually range from three to ten dollars a month and basically, you can’t get any WordPress hosting for any cheaper. These are the prices that usually people make those famous for the price of a starbucks Frappuccino type of comments.
