Do you recommend that I host my Discourse and Wordpress site separately?


(Liam Austin) #1

I want to understand the best way to host my WP and Discourse site. We need a cpanel to manage it.

Say I want to host:

Discourse with https://www.discoursehosting.com/
and
Wordpress with http://www.bluehost.com/

  1. Is this possible?
  2. Will single sign-in work if I do this? Official Single-Sign-On for Discourse (sso)
  3. Is this the best choice of combination?
  4. Do you recommend they are hosted with the same host?
  5. What would you do?

What kinda host are we talking here?

Yep, that should work fine! SSO does not require the sites to be on the same physical servers. However the domain names (blog.example.com and forum.example.com) should be the same in DNS.
