Network Solutions offers dedicated WordPress hosting package

ns-hosting-wordpressRather late to the blogging party, and deciding that a dedicated blog hosting package is better than a generic one, Network Solutions has announced its nsHosting for WordPress package that’s supposed to make it easy to set up and maintain a WordPress blog.

According to Network Solutions’ senior director of web presence, Navin Ganeshan, customers have been asking for WordPress. This strikes me as a little odd, given that the couple of times I’ve set up web hosting on a standard Network Solutions account, WordPress has always been an installation option, but perhaps it’s just about marketing to a certain audience.

The $4.95pm (less if bought up front) nsHosting package offers 50GB of disk space and 500GB of monthly bandwidth, plus a free domain name.

Hopefully it also offers full access to the WordPress database — a necessity when implementing some plugins. The last time I tried to alter the WP database on a NS hosted blog, I was told that the database was locked down for security reasons.

Good idea or gimmick? You decide.

    Hosting is a process that makes your site visible world wide on the internet. It suggests to the process of renting computer space and bandwidth (data transfer capacity) from a company so that you can make your website visible to the outside world.
