    Default Wordpress hosting

    Has anyone used Wordpress for blogging. Currently looking into this would probably not use their hosting unless it can be transferred to another host easily so looking for a webhost that supports Wordpress too and which will not break the bank for fees.

    Any advice happily accepted.

    Thanks

    No.
    But it was an extremely common package when I was at Webdrive...as in loads of people used it.
    I'd say most hosters will support it.

    You might be better off with something else. I've heard that WordPress is/was full of security holes. Or maybe that is mainly due to badly written plugins. Probably worth investigating before you use it, though.

    It's like Windows, you have to update it all the time.
    Anything PHP is a target, and Wordpress a big target.

    I created many blogs with the easy to use Google Blogger and using free hosting. It was always compared to the more advanced WordPress, because of its plethora of plug Ins and near likeness to a website. You need learn SEO if you want visibility in Google and to attract targeted visitors, depending why you intend to blog and what goals you are trying to achieve.

    In addition to Googler Blogger, their is also the little known Google Sites which has returned. Wix is another easy website builder which seems to become popular.
