WordPress hosting is for users who want to use WordPress.org's popular content management system (CMS) to develop their websites.

This free, opensource blogging and site-building platform can be used in a variety of ways.

A self-hosted website provides the most web-building functionality.

This usually entails uploading the free WordPress CMS to a server or signing up for a web host's WordPress-optimized package.

The host handles backend stuff automatically with an efficient plan, so you don't have to worry about updating plug-ins and CMS, or setting automatic backups.

The WordPress environment is usually pre-installed on the server in these cases.
