Two types of hosting-
Shared hosting- you are on a server with hundreds or thousands of other sites. Everyone shares the same resources and can impact each other. This is great for traffic under 1k a month.
VPS hosting- you are somewhat on your own island with your own set of resources. This is optimal for e-commerce and lots of traffic.
- What should you pay
- $10-$20 a month
- I offer WP hosting for $168 a year. If you like what you’ve built on your practice site, when you’re done we can move your site to your domain and you can stay on Inmotion Hosting.

Research your hosting options. If you find your current provider isn’t sufficient, move before you get significant traffic.
