Web hosting is a foreign term to most of us and if you’re starting your first ever wordpress site then this can be a really tough area to find your way around. In the world of website design and blogging then there is a lot of jargon to work your way around and terminology you really need to learn.
The best way to find your web host is to look online at reviews and to flick through a few of the hosts websites which will show you which features they have on offer. There are big names out there like blue host, 1 and 1, host gator and more.
Web hosting is basically space on the internet which you rent, a server space which you are able to store your files on, which are then served to other people.
Choosing the right web host, you want to look at a few different factors including the following:
How much space in GB they are offering you to put your files on the internet, if you’re going to have a big site or a lot of downloads it is key to have a lot of space.
Whether they have a cpanel hosting, this will put a lot of things in laymans terms and make them easier to install. Softaculous is software which runs through your host and often runs a one click install of wordpress, making things much easier.
Whichever company you’re going to go with, it makes a lot of sense to look around for good offers and value, as well as coupon codes which can save you a lot of cash.
