WordPress Hosting FAQs
What Is WordPress?
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.

What is WordPress hosting?
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 Aonap’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!
What is Managed WordPress Hosting?
A managed WordPress hosting takes the responsibilities of a website/server optimization, technical adjustments, and update management, etc. off your shoulders. While the good guys at Aonap keep track of the exhaustive list of website to-dos for you, you have ample time to focus on what matters most: adding and editing content and generating more traffic.
Moreover, a managed WordPress hosting comes with servers that have been adjusted precisely for running WordPress. In addition to a simple install, we also optimize everything and apply security measures, so that within a few moments, your website is ready to go live.
All in all, if you aren’t an expert in WordPress hosting, or don’t have too much time on your hands, a managed WordPress hosting will be ideal for you.
What is the difference between Web Hosting and WordPress hosting?
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 Aonap 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 Aonap 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. Conversely, with a simple web hosting, you might still get help, but the personnel won’t have the same level of hands-on WordPress experience!
