About the Lagos WordPress community meetup
The Lagos WordPress community meetup held at Whogohost Limited located at Plot 3A, Olumuyiwa Street, Off Babington Ashaye Crescent, Omole Phase 1, Lagos.
It was hosted by Elias Idowu who discussed key terms related to WordPress hosting such as Cache, REST API, headless WordPress and more.
He explained the differences between Shared hosting, Virtual private server as well as Managed WordPress hosting. Elias stated that while Shared hosting is cheap, you have to share resources on the server with other websites hosted on the same server. You also have no control over the kind of hardware or operating system your website would be hosted on. However, with a Virtual private server, you do not have to share resources with other websites and you have total control over the kind of OS you would like to use and more.
Elias went further to talk about Managed WordPress hosting. He called it the Uber for hosting- it is scalable, handles speed, security, backups, staging and more. He also stated that it is a very competitive type of hosting because you get what you pay for.
People who can use this service include – SMBs, agencies, organizations and more. He also shared some of the benefits of using Managed WordPress hosting.
Some of the Benefits include –
● Speed optimization – It is created for speed. Visitors hate slow loading sites and one can lose traffic because of this. 53% of people who visit a website or mobile app leave if it takes more than 3 seconds to load.
● Automatic Backups – You can do an automatic backup of your website. This way, you do not have to deal with starting from scratch should anything happen to your website.
● Security – You get automatic plugin updates. This keeps your website secure from hackers who are constantly looking for loopholes in a website.
He rounded up the session by asking and answering questions. It was indeed a swell session. To crown the event, Whogohost offered their training room space to the WordPress community for their future meetups should they need it.
