Do you really Need Managed WordPress Hosting?
Let’s face it:
Running a WordPress blog or site is no easy game. You have to take care of all the content, marketing, site design, social media, and so forth. But before you do that, you have to make sure your WordPress site and all of the plugins are running smoothly and your current WordPress hosting provider isn’t giving you any headaches or issues.
Today, most of the web hosting companies out there focus on providing affordable solutions. It costs you less than $5 to get an account with a shared hosting provider. And that’s a great solution if you’re just getting started. But for a medium-sized or business site going for high-quality WordPress hosting is a better alternative.
By quality hosting, I mean managed hosting, which is specifically created for WordPress users. This new breed of WordPress hosting is becoming an increasingly popular option among WordPress bloggers and developers. It all started with WordPress.com VIP, but now there are numerous players in the market.
