All The WordPress.com Hosting Options Ruthlessly Reviewed For You

About WordPress.com

WordPress.org is the organizational site behind the WordPress CMS. On that site you can download the software, read news about it, and learn about upcoming events. WordPress.org launched in 2003.

Two years later, WordPress.com was created. It’s a commercial software platform that provides everything you need to create a WordPress site, customize it, and get it online. Plus you get ongoing expert support and tutorials.

WordPress continues to grow as small businesses, individuals and bloggers join the platform.

WordPress.com hosting offers three paid plans which are ad-free and give you varying levels of creative control.

Pros and Cons

If you’re looking for a snapshot of where WordPress.com wins and where it falls down, we’ve put together the key pros and cons.

Pros Cons
* Hosted WordPress, which means you don’t have to worry about setting up the infrastructure for your WordPress site
* Can be used in place of a website builder
* Pricing is comparable to shared hosting plans on which you install WordPress
* Storage space can become a problem as your website/blog grows (requiring you to upgrade)
* Not the easiest option to use
* E-commerce options are fairly expensive and aren’t as robust as those offered by dedicated e-commerce platforms

Pros

WordPress is a content management system that can be easily set up, assuming you’re comfortable and familiar with web servers and hosting.

Those, however, who want to outsource such tasks would find WordPress.com appealing. You can use the WordPress platform without having to deal with web hosting details.

Cons

While pricing for WordPress.com plans are comparable to shared hosting plans, the company enforces strict storage limits. As your site grows, you may need to upgrade.

WordPress.com isn’t as intuitive as Squarespace, Weebly, or Wix.

WordPress is infinitely customizable, but because of this, there are some steep learning curves you might have to overcome.

Long time reader, first time commenter — so,
thought I’d drop a comment.. — and at the same
time ask for a favor.

Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
(and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress like yours–
but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback)

Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself
during the coronavirus scare!

Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t
mind me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I
steal it? :P)

I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the
theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s
still in the works.

Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net
from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for
about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?

Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

P.S. If you have a minute, would love your feedback on my new website re-design. You can find it
by searching for “royal cbd” – no sweat if you can’t.

Keep up the good work!
