WordPress Hosting For Small Businesses

WordPress is by far the most popular blogging platform on the internet Today. According to WordPress’ statistics, there are over 73,000,000 active installations of the WordPress software.

WordPress users produce over 500,000 new posts and over 400,000 new comments everyday. Over 340 million people view these posts each month.

According to W3Tech’s survey of the top 1 million websites, 14.3% of them use the WordPress platform, 1.6% use Drupal and 2.7% use Joomla while the rest use other platforms. These statistics show that WordPress is the market leader. Below are some of the advantages of WordPress hosting.

Easy Installation

When compared to other web hosting service providers, WordPress is by far the easiest to install. The entire installation process can be completed within 30 minutes. With other platforms such as Tumblr, Drupal and Joomla, it will take longer to install and to get the site running on the Internet. Once everything is installed, all you have to do is log into the administrator console and customize your website.

Unlimited Customization

The best thing about WordPress is that you will never have to customize the source code. What you will have to customize is the look of the website. Changing the themes, plug-ins and widgets is all possible in WordPress.

Easy to use

Some platforms are too complicated and hence only understood by IT specialists. That is not the case with WordPress, once you have the required software, it will take you a short time to learn how to use it like a pro. Moreover, the process of turning your free blog into a WordPress hosted website is quite simple and it doesn’t require any technical ability.

Secure

WordPress hosting is regularly updated to protect the users from hackers and spammers. You can turn on the automatic update feature which checks for available updates and updates your blog as soon as the new updates are downloaded.

In summary, WordPress is a tried and tested blogging (and CMS) platform to drive personal, business and e-commerce websites.   Each new release brings powerful new editing, security and plugin features that help you build content and ease maintenance.

“I have been a customer of UK2 for as long as I can remember. It never ceases to amaze me the speed in which you respond to problems or queries, usually of my own making. The live chat for tech support is so efficient. I have nothing but praise for you guys and gals. The level of service is second to none. Nothing ever seems to be too much hassle. Well done, you all deserve a medal.“

“9pm on Sunday evening, realised that I hadn't renewed my hosting service. 10 minutes of help from your live chat support and my websites are up and running again. As a company offering 24 hour emergency electrical/locksmith services most of our work comes from the websites, so getting this fixed without having to wait for Monday morning was very important.“
