Before we can get into details about what WordPress Hosting is, perhaps we should first explain what WordPress is, for those of you who might be unsure.
WordPress is a PHP App for Websites. It allows you to build and maintain a website without the need for a developer
WordPress is a piece of Software that runs on our WordPress Hosting Server and provides you, the website owner, simple tools to create and work on a website.
When you start out, all you have is a Domain name like helpinghost.com. You will get this domain name through so called Domain Registration from us. However, that in itself only means that you are the owner of that name in the Internet. It does NOT provide you with a website or e-mail.
Next, you need to “point” this name to a place on the internet.
You need to point it to a Computer that is constantly connected to the Internet and like our WordPress Hosting.
You will rent a bit of space on one of those computers (Servers) in a high tech datacenter. This is called WordPress Hosting.
This “pointing” is done by so called NameServers. (more about that you can find on our Support pages).
Now that your name is pointing to a Server you will probably see a Parking Page. This is like a placeholder which hopefully will be replaced by your own WordPress pages soon.
Easy so far right?
Now comes the hard part! Building, creating, designing uploading and maintaining your own WordPress Site. You would probably pay a web developer thousands of dollars or sit on your computer for days if not weeks trying to figure all this out.
As a result, you would be quite frustrated right now.
That is where our pre-installed WordPress comes into the picture which will save you from the frustrating part. You simply install WordPress with a click of a button from inside your WordPress Hosting account and voila, your WordPress Site is up and running. You now login to your WordPress install and add posts or pages to your wordpress site.
Normal Hosting companies need to provide a very generic environment to ensure that as many web applications as possible are working.
WordPress Hosting on the other hand means that everything is optimized for the use of WordPress.
This means, first of all that the Server your website runs on is configured to run PHP which is the programming language in which WordPress was written in. Furthermore a separate Database server which can focus on running the WordPress database is also a part of this.
A perfectly configured PHP is also required to run WordPress without any problems. Having the latest version of PHP is part of that. To give you an example: when switching WordPress from PHP 5.6 to 7.x you can achieve a speed increase of up to 300%.
WordPress hosting finally means that there has to be a tool that enables the website owner to install WordPress as professional and safe as if you would have employed a Web developer with lots of WordPress experience.
