What is hosting?
Hosting is where your website lives on the internet. It’s like you rent a bit of space (on a server) and then you store your website there. Your domain name is the address of your rented space. We point the domain name to your hosting (rented space) so people can type in your address (e.g.www.getwiththebrand.co) and find your website. This article is specifically about WordPress hosting.
Where should I host my WordPress website?
There are literally zillions of options. Some are cheap as chips, some are insanely expensive. Which you choose will likely depend on the size of your site and budget, but know that hosting is very much a ‘you get what you pay for’ kind of situation.
Who do you recommend I host my website with?
This site is hosted by WP Engine. We are affiliated with them and recommend them for your WordPress website. Why? Because that’s all they do! WP Engine only host WordPress websites, nothing else. They are the experts, with over 7,000 customers, who they support 24/7. So if you need a hand and it happens to be 7am on a Sunday morning, that’s no biggie.
