Managed WordPress hosting is big business at this time within the WordPress eco-system, over the past year many hosting companies have began which specialize in WordPress and the founded hosts have begun offering packages tailored to WordPress users and programmers. Hosting has advanced from single machines hosting multiple websites to now using cloud systems which can range easily and manage with the needs of a rapidly growing website. Microsoft has finally come into this space with their Azure Cloud platform which allows you to build and deploy web applications, websites, backups, and storage space in the cloud.
The interesting point for me personally is that they provide WordPress features that may allow you to create an enterprise-grade WordPress installation in a couple of minutes. This post will walk you through installing setup and WordPress on Microsoft Azure, month so you can test out the service for yourself which even includes a free.
Once your details have been moved into and you are registered, you will notice a “Portal” link top right which is where you can begin establishing your first service. In this post we are displaying you how to create a WordPress site using the trial-offer accounts, I’d prefer to note that you can host a WordPress website for free indefinitely as well also. The first step in adding a WordPress install to Azure is to choose a free database, so click on the “New” link at the bottom and select “Store”, and choose the “ClearDB” MySQL database from the list. Click the next arrow and choose the free option and the database will be added to your account.
- Single video
- Locate the folder in which you stored your data source
- Locate the order form
- Sitemaps can be generated for faster and easier crawling
- Twitter Followers: 1212
- MultiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE (20130324).zip
- Dont expect the result to be much better than the source
Once the database has been added which requires a short while, you can add a WordPress website then. This is done within the Azure gallery which has a number of applications you can choose from. “Website” and then “From Gallery” which loads in the available apps. There are a true number of categories and an impressive amount of apps to choose from such as Drupal, .NET CMS, Better CMS, Django, Ghost, Joomla! MVC Forum and undoubtedly WordPress.
Choose WordPress from the list (under the CMS category) and click the next arrow. After that you can get into your site URL and choose the data source you created before (you might also need the chance to create a new database at this time), there are spaces if you wish to get into authentication keys also. Finish off and you’ll see the website being created here, once it’s finished you can click on the name of your site and will be presented with your dashboard. Enter those and you’ll have a working WordPress installation now.
Many people are choosing to go their sites and applications over to cloud hosting from more traditional hosting environments, but what exactly are the benefits of doing so? Reliability – Cloud hosting is a lot more reliable than a single server hosting that could mean your site is not available if the host machine goes down. Multiple Conditions – about more than just Websites It’s.
You can create Virtual Machines, Cloud Services, Mobile Services, Media Services, and more. There is certainly support for an array of systems such as Linux & Windows OS’S and Developer frameworks such as PHP, Java, Python, .Net, Node.js, Mobile, and Ruby platforms such as Google android, iOS, Windows, Xamarin, and Phonegap.
Pay for what you utilize – You only pay for the exact resources you use so you are not overpaying for more than you need. The Azure platform seems very slick – The portal interface is simple to use but contains many powerful elements so will need time to learn everything that is available for you. From a WordPress perspective, the set up was a piece of cake and I had a functional WP install ready to go within around five minutes.
The capability to scale your site on-demand and pay just for the resources you utilize is an enormous bonus – no more needing to change machines or upgrade your hosting plan, everything will there be when it’s needed. With an enormous company like Microsoft behind this, you know they have the infrastructure in place so your sites are secure and will always be available (they add a 99.95% uptime SLA). In fact you are sharing the same platform that capabilities Skype, Office 365, Bing, and Xbox which means that your site will be in good company!
