If you ask most web hosting providers what their recommendation would be for a blogging platform or Content Management System for a website you will most probably hear WordPress as the first option.

Each day, more people are selecting WordPress, and with good reason too.

Updates and Community Support

WordPress is regularly updated by the community and is kept bug-free and as secure as possible at all times.

If there is a vulnerability or exploit detected, many people work hard to plug the vulnerability and fix the flaws in the system.

Since it is open-source, this is all a team effort of the community.

There is no dependence on a dedicated team or a profit-focused software company.

This gives assurance to web hosting providers that the software is safe to run on their servers without a hitch.

Auto Installer Support

Almost all auto-installer software supports the WordPress system and enables quick setup and maintenance of WordPress.

With auto-installer software like Softaculous, you can auto-update WordPress when a new version is released, you can update all themes and plugins when new versions are released and you can also configure automatic backups.

This eases the burden on the web hosting provider in monitoring outdated installations and asking users to keep updating their obsolete software.

This also comes into use when the web host needs to step in to provide support or fire-fight a website compromise.

Useful Documentation and Helpful Tutorials.

WordPress is well documented and the documentation is easily accessible on its website.

This is a major relief to most web hosts, especially when troubleshooting client issues.

A web host would always like to know if there is some issue with their server or if there is a misconfiguration with the user’s installation of WordPress.

Although providing support for WordPress may not be covered in the scope of work of the hosting provider, it would give them brownie points for pointing a distressed client in the right direction.

WordPress also has a lot of tutorials for newbie users and private bloggers. Many websites offer Video and Audio Tutorials for free, while some charge for premium guidance.

YouTube also offers numerous free videos on WordPress issues and how to solve them.

Turn Around Time

A primary reason why web hosts and web developers love WordPress is due to the minuscule turnaround time for setting up a website and getting content online.

The coming of auto-installers has further improved the speed of setup and updates.

When a client trusts a web host for all their IT advice and expertise, they are sure to ask about WordPress.

Setting up WordPress for an elderly client or a loyal patron is super fast and easy.

We have seen many clients struggling for months on end just to pick a suitable web designer.

When they do pick one, it is an endless process to get the final site up and running. Either the Web Designer dilly-dallies or the client has very little time to give input.

This process goes on for a couple of months, till the client realizes that the web hosting space they have taken is being wasted.

When the client sits up and wants a website done yesterday, it’s the development team’s turn to act.
