The Differences Between WordPress Hosting and WordPress Storage2 min read
Storage WordPress(אחסון וורדפרס) is typically part of a Managed WordPress Hosting package, but can also be purchased as an add-on service. It’s essential to understand the differences between WordPress Hosting and WordPress Storage, however, in order to make sure that you get the right service for your needs. This article will help you better understand these differences and which option might be best for you and your website.
What is WordPress?
To understand what it is, you must first understand that a blog is simply a published series of posts. So, when you hear someone referring to their website as a blog, it simply means that they are using their website as a publishing platform. This can mean anything from an online diary to thousands of articles with multimedia included. In order to create posts on a WordPress site, users need an interface that allows them to publish content.
What are the Benefits of Cloud Hosting?
When you decide to host your website on a cloud platform like AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud, it’s crucial to understand what’s going on under-the-hood. If you have knowledge of web hosting from previous experience with dedicated servers, it might seem like moving over to a cloud platform would be simple. However, there are differences between traditional web hosting and a cloud platform that shouldn’t be overlooked.
Should I Use a Managed WordPress Provider?
There are a few main types of providers that run WordPress sites: self-hosted providers, managed/hosted providers, and web hosts. Each type of provider has its own pluses and minuses; let’s take a look at them here. If you’re not sure which one to use for your site, there are several pros and cons to consider before you choose.
Can I Move From One Managed WordPress Provider to Another?
While some managed WordPress hosts provide free data transfers, others charge a fee for transferring your data from one host to another. This is important because if you’re unhappy with your current provider and want to move away, you may not be able to take your data with you. Your best bet is always to sign up with a host that offers unlimited transfers. The price difference shouldn’t be too significant since most providers offer unlimited storage anyway.
