Our answers to frequently asked WordPress hosting questions.

WordPress is a state-of-the-art, open-source content management system. It is, arguably, the staple website creation tool in the world right now. It’s easy to use, efficient, very well-built, and heavily customizable, with millions of plugins, themes, and tutorials available online. From job boards to blogs, and from digital portfolios to ecommerce stores; all kinds of sites can be (and are) powered by WordPress. Many renowned websites have WordPress running behind the scenes; TechCrunch, The New Yorker, and Sony Music are a few examples.

Just like you rent an apartment to store all the things that make up your household; you rent a WordPress hosting to store all the files and folders that make up your website. Typically, a WordPress hosting signifies a host of web servers that have been optimized and fine-tuned to run WordPress websites at peak performance. Installing WordPress on Hostking’s WordPress hosting takes a single click. Within a few moments of the installation, you are ready to tweak your website and add content as you please. It comes with pre- installed cache plugins and security enhancements that help you go live quicker than you’d hoped!

We’ll migrate all of your sites for free! Our free migration service is included with all WordPress Hosting plans and makes it easy for anyone to transfer their WordPress site to Hostking. Let our team of experts do the heavy lifting for you, we'll have your websites loading faster in no time on our SSD Powered web servers!

The primary difference between a simple web hosting and a WordPress hosting is that the latter is built for the sole purpose of powering WordPress websites. This means that servers used for a WordPress hosting are tuned such that they can run any number of WordPress websites, at maximum speed and performance. Doing the same with a simple web hosting will require a lot of machine-level adjustments, plugin installations, and memory tweaks.
In addition to speed and performance, a Hostking WordPress hosting also comes with pre-configured security measures. You don’t have to set up firewall rules or run malware tests like you’d have to on a simple web hosting. You worry about creating high-quality content and marketing your website.
Also, with a Hostking WordPress hosting, you get dedicated, 24/7/365 support from highly trained WordPress professionals. They know everything about your hosting account and can provide an instant solution to seemingly complicated WordPress problems.
