I personally use and recommend SiteGround shared web hosting for WordPress sites because their servers are fast and reliable, the cost is reasonable, and their support is good.
But, if you go on their website to pick web hosting for your WordPress site, you’ll find “Web Hosting” and “WordPress Hosting”. What’s the difference?
I was wondering that too so I messaged them. The answer is pretty simple and less than what you’d think.

SiteGround’s “WordPress Hosting” comes with WordPress pre-installed. That’s it.
Since you can easily install WordPress on their regular Web Hosting Plan, the two plans are pretty much the same.
I suspect they have the two plans for marketing reasons, to compete with other providers’ “WordPress Hosting” plans. But the truth is that you can install WordPress on either plan (or not). – Brian
