What is “WordPress Hosting” and How does it Differ from Regular Hosting?
WordPress is the most popular application for building websites on the planet, period. It offers thousands of templates to get you started, and even more plugins to add almost any type of functionality you would like your website to have. Most novices, and even experts, who are building websites will never venture into the “back-end” of their website, as they can control every aspect of their website from the Wordpress control panel. WordPress hosting basically shifts the back-end management of your website to the hosting company, leaving you free to simply create the perfect website.
What Are the Advantages of WordPress Hosting?
Themes, Themes, Themes! North Georgia Web has partnered with the three largest, and most widely used, themes on the planet: Thesis, Genesis and Divi. Together these themes run more websites than all other applications on the web; and when we say “partnered” we mean full access to ALL of their premium themes, not starter plans that charge you more for “premium” features.
Thesis is a light, quick and modular theme that is best suited for experienced WordPress users, it gives you full control of your website through a block-system template that requires a little CSS and HTML knowledge.
Genesis is a theme framework, that uses child themes to build your website. These child themes offer a user-friendly interface that makes designing your website a snap. Whether you’re a web savvy designer or a beginner, Genesis framework themes make your website look like a professional designed it. Currently, we offer EVERY available theme designed by Studiopress (Genesis) for you to use free of charge, with your WordPress hosting account.
Divi Theme and Theme Builder Divi is our most popular theme and visual page builder. It’s the most widely used premium WordPress theme in the world according to stats from BuiltWith.com. Divi is more than just a theme, it’s a website building framework that makes it possible to design beautiful websites without ever touching a single line of code and without installing and configuring dozens of disjointed plugins. We think this is the future of WYSIWYG and it’s unlike any WordPress theme you have ever used before.
You’ve never built a WordPress website like this before. Divi is more than just a WordPress theme, it’s a completely new website building platform that replaces the standard WordPress post editor with a vastly superior visual editor. It can be enjoyed by design professionals and newcomers alike, giving you the power to create spectacular designs with surprising ease and efficiency.
Back-end Access to Your Website
Wait, didn’t we just tell you that you do not need to worry about managing the server-side of this equation? Yes we did, and you don’t. However, having the ability to manipulate the server environment that WordPress runs within is a huge advantage that most Wordpress hosting companies simply do not offer.
As your business, or website, grows you may want to add plugins or themes that are larger and more extensive than the average run of the mill plugins widely used. These advanced plugins often require different, or additional, server settings to play nicely within the Wordpress world. Without the ability to tweak your server settings, you could be stuck in the mud, or have to pay extra for an upgraded hosting plan.
Free Domain w/ Yr Pkg
Domain names must be registered each year. The registration cost varies between TLD’s. (A top-level domain is one of the domains at the highest level in the hierarchical Domain Name System of the Internet.) The average registration cost is around $11. For example, “.com” TLD’s sell for $10.95 per year. When you sign up for any one year package with North Georgia Web i.e. web hosting, WordPress Hosting or one of our website packages, we pay for your domain name registration. Even though we pay this fee on your behalf, the domain always belongs to you and is transferrable to any registrar.
SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remain private. In years past, this was rarely used, except by websites that hosted monetary transactions.”
Nowadays, Google, and other search engines are requiring that websites have an SSL connetion in order to be listed in search results. This make having an SSL connection to your server more important than ever. This is why at North Georgia Web, we supply a free SSL with all accounts.
