As I mentioned earlier that WordPress can be installed on your normal shared hosting in a few minutes and in most cases you don’t require special hosting for this. However if you are a serious blogger or an online business then for added benefits special WordPress hosting may benefit you. Several good web hosts offer you hosting plans with WordPress pre-installed. This save you from the hassle of installing it yourself (though installing WordPress is not a big deal) and which gives a peace of mind to several new comers.
Specialized WordPress hosting is of course expensive than the normal shared hosting plans and it also comes with number of restrictions like bandwidth, disk space, number of domains allowed on single account etc. but that is that.
If you possess sufficient knowledge about the WordPress platform and are confident to manage your websites or blogs yourself then you may not need special hosting for it. However if you are new to the platform and always require the help of someone more knowledgeable and expert then you may opt for special WordPress hosting from a reputed host.
Whether you are a new comer to the online world or a seasoned webmaster you will agree with me that WordPress is the best blogging script in the world and keeping in view its utility and benefits it really deserves specialized WordPress hosting.
