1. Managed WordPress Hosting
💡 Some of the key qualities of managed hosting are:
1. Managed hosting platforms are optimized to run WordPress sites only, they usually restrict customization to the server settings and installation of certain WordPress plugins or other third-party software in the effort to enhance security for all users.
2. Managed hosting infrastructure does not share resources among users to reduce server failures, or security breaches in the event that another website on the platform is hacked or compromised.
3. The responsibility of server maintenance and configuration is solely handled by the Managed Host eg updating of PHP version, WordPress software or tweaking of any server settings, etc.
2. Shared WordPress Hosting
💡 Below are some of the key qualities of Shared WordPress hosting
1. Shared hosting platforms accommodate websites developed in any language, for example, PHP, HTML, Python, etc it also allows the installation of other Opensource CMS like Drupal, PrestaShop, Joomla, etc. Shared Hosting platforms do not restrict users on the type of configuration they can apply to the webserver or plugins they can install on their websites.
2. Hosting resources are shared among all users. When there is a server failure or when security is compromised it affects all users on the shared server platform.
3. It gives users the freedom to make any configuration or server settings. Users are also able to update their WordPress and PHP software or even carry out any tweaking of their server files.
