Traditional Web Hosting
Traditional web hosting is what it sounds like: you rent a server from a third-party provider and install WordPress (or another content-management system) onto it. You then configure the server to be accessible via the internet. Some of the benefits to traditional web hosting are that you don’t need to set up any DNS records (Domain Name Servers) and you can launch your site instantly.
The downside to traditional web hosting is that you’re reliant on the host’s performance (if you had a bad experience with one host, you’ll likely have a bad experience with all hosts) and you’re at the mercy of the host’s service level (they can turn off your site at any time without warning). Another disadvantage is that most traditional web hosts don’t offer a dedicated IP address, so if you’re looking for a way to protect your content from being hacked, you’ll have to find another way. Another drawback is that the setup of a traditional web host is complex, so if you’re looking for an easy way to get up and running with a blog or website, this isn’t the route you want to take. Most traditional web hosts also charge a setup fee and have additional fees for things such as bandwidth and storage, so you’re looking at a lot of money if you want to get started.
