Instead of WordPress hosting, I recommend you the Shared Hosting option.

Managed WordPress hosting has some disadvantages over Shared Hosting.

1) You can't create email accounts with WordPress hosting.
2) There will not be a control panel like cPanel to manage your website.
3) To upload/download files/folders, you will need to use SFTP.
4) You can't host any other application like Joomla, Magento etc on WordPress hosting.

However, as compared with the performance, Managed WordPress is far better than Shared Linux hosting, these servers are specially designed to host only WordPress websites.

I hope it helps.

There is no general best provider since everyone has different needs. The best provider is the one that works for you and meets your requirements.

You should be able to find a shared hosting provider that is already optimized for content management systems such as WordPress. When choosing you should inquire to their sales department and ask for a free trial to see if it meets your needs. They should happily oblige your request.

As suggested by 24x7, you must go with Shared hosting, facility and service which you can get in shared hosting cant be given in wordpress hosting.

Thanks !!

Any hosting provider that you choose should be able to handle any requests for wordpress but if that is something that you specifically need I suggest contacting them first and ask them what they do with sites that run wordpress on their servers.

Hosting WrodPress is not a rocket science. There is one important thing part of the stability of the web host's infrastructure. It is the Support's ability to troubleshoot and manage WordPress installations, plugins and to do some simple coding.

Correct a GOOD Wordpress host will behave more like a SaaS rather than a shared hosting account. Given obviously the installation will be manned by the company rather than the client him/her self.

However if that all you need/wants then you can opt for that for convenience and ease of operation.

But as others mentioned a shared account that is quality (typically $5+/month) could possibly do the "heavy lifting" for you as long as your not expecting the provider to maintain extensive amount of plugins and/or etc.

A simple solution for any shared hosting provider is charge a client if they want you to install/maintain plugins etc.

It all boils down on how much support they are willing to include. A bargain provider? You can't expect much if any extra support included. As they will often charge even for basic tasks.

But if your at a more "fancy" provider they will at least include installations on the house as long as it not a "everyday affair".

Yes basic script installation which i used to offer, but if they then want you to install plugins etc. then these become chargeable as a configuration addon

I see what your saying but after considering...

Having to explain what's charge able and what's not

Having to explain "we take no liabilities blah blah blah"

Having to collect said payments

Having to BE there to do the actions

I would just find for myself it would be easier to just up mark the account pricing. Then re scale as needed (for example if they are demanding more support then they shouldn't mind a higher per month price to make up for that).

I find that not much different than steady increasing gaming membership pricing. As more features are added to a game the more they charge their newer subscriptions for.
