In order for your WordPress website to appear on the web, it has to be hosted somewhere. Think of hosting like a storage facility. It’s a place for you to store all of your stuff (your website) on the web. The more stuff you have (the bigger your site) the more storage space you need.
There are many web hosting companies. It is essential that you select a hosting company that is “WordPress friendly.” This isn’t an official designation, of course, just something we’ve learned to look for over the years.
In order to use WordPress, you’ll need a Linux hosting account, which is available with most of the popular web hosting companies. For more information, check out our free ebook on How to Find Quality WordPress Hosting.
