For most web hosts you can expect they’ll provide these 3 services:
- Domain Name Registration
- Web Hosting Your WordPress Site
It is recommended that you keep all 3 of these services with one company for the sake of your sanity.
Most web hosting companies also provide supplemental services such as:
- Site backups
- SSL (most do now for free)
- WP updates
It will depend upon the host and the plan you have chosen.
Another consideration is support. The standard is 24 X 7 X 365 support via telephone, email and text.
There are many hosts to choose from. What they provide and how they do it can be very different.
If you’re thinking of changing hosting companies most will help migrate your site to their platform.
