WordPress is now the most popular website-building tool in the world. This could be because it's easy enough for anyone to use, yet it has thousands of plugins and tens of thousands of themes/templates available to grow with. It could also be the modern designs, powerful options, and the freedom to build any type of website you want.
One thing is for sure, with about 30% of the entire Internet using WordPress, it's a pretty safe bet for starting your website. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time. Our auto-installer will add it with one click and allow it to be updated the day new updates come out, all automatically. WordPress does require more power to run a website compared to a normal HTML website or our Website Builder, so the more powerful the web hosting plan the better. WordPress also requires some basic optimization and security plugins that we can add and configure for you, free of charge!
Our WordPress manager (WP ToolKit) allows for easy installation, backups, removal, and automatic updates for plugins and the core, and we have hand-selected the best optimization and security plugins you can add easily when installing WordPress onto your website.

What is WordPress web hosting?
WordPress web hosting refers to the service provided by hosting companies specifically optimized for WordPress websites. These hosting providers offer server environments that are configured to meet the requirements of WordPress, ensuring optimal performance, security, and ease of use for WordPress users. Here are some key points to consider when looking for WordPress web hosting:
Managed vs. Shared Hosting: Managed WordPress hosting is a specialized hosting service where the hosting provider takes care of all the technical aspects of managing your WordPress website. This includes automatic updates, security monitoring, daily backups, and performance optimization. Shared hosting, on the other hand, is a more affordable option where multiple websites share the same server resources. At Web Host Pro, we optionally manage all WordPress websites for security, optimization, and updates for free.
Performance and Speed: Look for a hosting provider that offers fast and reliable servers. Performance is crucial for a successful website, as slow-loading pages can negatively impact user experience and search engine rankings. Consider hosting providers that use technologies like solid-state drives (SSDs) and server caching to enhance performance. Web Host Pro uses SSD and caching for the fastest WordPress performance.
Security: Website security is of utmost importance. Ensure that the hosting provider offers robust security measures such as firewalls, malware scanning, and regular backups. Look for SSL certificate support to enable secure HTTPS connections for your website. At Web Host Pro, we have free malware scanning, SSL, and regular backups for free.
Scalability: If you expect your website to grow in terms of traffic or content, choose a hosting provider that offers scalability options. This allows you to easily upgrade your hosting plan as your needs increase. At Web Host Pro, you can upgrade or downgrade anytime for no extra cost than the plan. We can even migrate you to your own VPS or Server for free.
User-Friendly Control Panel: A user-friendly control panel, such as cPanel, can simplify the management of your WordPress website. It should provide tools for managing domains, databases, email accounts, and other essential features. Web Host Pro uses cPanel with all WordPress web hosting plans.
Support: Good customer support is vital, especially if you're new to WordPress or encounter technical issues. Look for hosting providers that offer 24/7 customer support through various channels such as live chat or ticket-based systems. Web Host Pro has live chat and supports ticket support 24 hours a day!
