Traditional Hosting vs. Managed Hosting – Which WordPress Hosting is Best for You?

WordPress hosting solutions and prices are all over the map. Traditional shared hosting plans will cost roughly $10 or more per month. On the other hand, many agencies offer managed hosting and maintenance for anywhere in the range of $100 – $1,000 or more per month.

So which WordPress hosting solution is best for you? Before we can answer this question, it’s important to clarify the terms.

Traditional Web Hosting

By traditional hosting, we are referring to shared hosting plans, at a company like GoDaddy, HostGator, or Dreamhost, which on a technical level, can handle most small-to-medium sized websites and a decent amount of traffic, at the price points mentioned above.

Managed WordPress Hosting

When we say managed hosting, we are referring to our own hosting solutions specifically designed for WordPress hosting and the maintenance service where all technical aspects required for running a WordPress website is taken care of. This includes security, speed, WordPress updates, daily backups, website uptime, scalability, etc.

Advantages of Managed Hosting

If your site isn’t terribly complicated and doesn’t get traffic that measures in the hundreds of thousands of visits, you might be wondering why you would ever want to pay that much more for our managed hosting and maintenance.

Here’s three very good reasons:

1 – WordPress Performance

Your WordPress installation will run more smoothly in an environment specifically designed for WordPress and managed by WordPress experts than in a traditional hosting environment.

2 – Maintenance and Updates

Your WordPress website will require constant updates of plugins and core system components. Not doing these updates will eventually cause performance issues and security risks.

Updating your WordPress website can also lead to issues of compatibility between your core theme, your plugins or modules. Needless to say, it can all be a bit of a headache, but not keeping your WordPress solution updated can put your website at a significant risk for getting hacked.

3 – Cost Saving

Going the managed WordPress route may save you money in the long run, as it ultimately might save you the cost of hiring a programmer and a system administrator to fix a damaged, hacked and poorly running website. This can be particularly beneficial to small businesses.
