Sandra asks…

What are the differences between GoDaddy’s WordPress hosting and Basic Hosting Plans?

GoDaddy offers a specific WordPress hosting plan for a website and a basic hosting plan however, the basic plan offers an install of WordPress as an option. They both cost the same amount. I don’t want to put myself in the situation where I can’t switch back from WordPress if I don’t want to run a blog, but want to keep the hosting. Can someone explain the differences between the two plans?

Simon answers:

I think they’re basically the same plan – more of a marketing tactic than anything. If your really into godaddy hosting I would go with the regular hosting plan, just to make sure you can easily install other types of software if you’d like.

What are some free wordpress hosting websites ?

I need a free wordpress hosting website so I can host my wordpress website.
Also i would download the software from wordpress.org and install it how do you host it ?

Simon answers:

1. WordPress is FREE

First of all , if you prefer a domain like :- yoursite.wordpress.com , it is completely free. So as with Blogger as well. WordPress only hosts it.

2. Go with own domain

You will need a hosting provided you want some domain like :- yoursite.com etc. Better go with your own domain + hosting. Then you can not only get the main domain but many other subdomains for FREE – unlimited number of subdomains.

3, Subdomains – unlimited

I do not know your business idea. But if you have got 100 or 1000 s of ideas :- you can very easily make sites with those ideas like :- idea1.yourdomain.com , idea2.yourdomain.com , so on & so forth.

4. Annual Cost

This is only possible if you do your own hosting-self hosted WordPress blog- believe me it is very very easy. The domain + Hosting may cost you to the tune of $ 25 [max]. For one domain. Recommended to start with 1 domain + 1 hosting to start up. Once you catch up , can get multiple domains etc. Better plans available. But better start small. Baby steps.

5. WordPress Set up is very very easy.

Once you understand the installation , can do this very very easily. What you have to do is :- Get a LINUX hosting account [ does not matter even if you have windows on your PC]. In linux , you get a software called fantastico , it makes your job idiot-proof. Once you learn the skills , can repeat for every subdomain.

6. Every subdomain – new site – new idea – new business for you.

I hope you are pretty clear now , why to host with self hosted WordPress service.

Whats the difference in web hosting and wordpress hosting from godaddy?

I want to do a wordpress blog on it but I didn’t know if I need to purchase both or just the wordpress hosting? i’m confused on this. thanks.

Simon answers:

I think the hosting is exactly the same in both cases (looks identical price / specs etc). It’s just that if you want to use wordpress, they will put it on and set it up for you as well. Basically, they are just trying to appeal to as many people as possible.

You can install wordpress yourself – it really is just a 10min job as they say. You just need hosting that has PHP and a mysql database. But if anyone will do it for you for nothing, i’d take that option.

WordPress rocks!

Robert asks…

What are the advantages to donloading WordPress and hosting it on your own server?

I was wondering what the advantages would be to hosting your own wordpress blog versus using the hosting provided by the website.

Also
Is its possible to do Google Adsense with the blog hosted by wordpress?

Simon answers:

The reason that most people do it is that they like to be in control of all their own stuff. Because it can be quite complex and expensive I think they tend to be techie guys, probably that work in the industry that know what they are doing. I used to use http://www.terapad.com which is a hosted service, but its 100% free and has more features than wordpress. You can ad adsense in as well no problem .. Whatever you choose, best of luck with your blog 🙂
