WordPress Hosting Through Shared Hosting

Posted by Doug on June 4, 2011 in Content Management, Shared Hosting with No Comments


WordPress hosting is generally supported by most shared hosting services. When you have your own WordPress blog from WordPress.org, you will usually need to find a hosting website that will host it at a low cost. The larger ones can offer this.

However, it does beg the question as to whether it is better to opt for shared hosting, especially if you are looking for something for your own business. By using a shared hosting account, you also have the benefits of site builders or the use of other content management systems to get you started.

WordPress is perfect if you are looking for something small and easy to create a blog – it is easier than making your own from scratch. WordPress is extremely easy to update so that you do not need to go through every page that you have to fix links and you can also make it go live easily and quickly. It is generally considered one of the best options if you truly want a low income generating blog for fun.

International Free Joomla Templates

People who use Joomla to build their websites, turn to the community for advice, or become members of the community themselves, are located all around the world. Joomla has kept this in mind when designing and building their own free Joomla templates and online community magazine. Not everyone who uses Joomla, no matter the reason, speaks the same language.

Joomla magazine can be read in many different languages besides English including Japanese, Arabic, German, Thai and the list goes on. Members wanting to contribute a story to the magazine can do so in the language of their choosing. When it’s time to submit a story they simply click on the language link they want to submit it to.

It is easy to read the magazine in a different language as well. There is a menu located in the upper right hand corner of every web page with the word translation written next to it. Members look through the menu for the language they prefer and click on it. The website is then quickly translated into that language.

Joomla vs. Dreamweaver

If you are so used to maintaining a website through the use of Dreamweaver, it can become very tiring to need to take hours on just one simple thing. If you need to make a change then you will need to do each changes one by one and you can soon run out of time on changes rather than adding the extras that you wanted to.

With Joomla hosting, it is possible to take care of everything in less time than you would making changes with your usual manual website options. Even making the smallest change with Dreamweaver will cause lots of time being spent to fix all pages whereas Joomla will take care of those small problems for you. You can reorder your menus without needing to worry about any other changes that it will force you to make.

With Joomla, you can also add a new design to a different page easily and with one click, unlike having to make each change slowly through the use of your Dreamweaver.
