So I’m new to Jamstack and Netlify and Gatsby, but I have been building Wordpress sites for over 10 years. I just read the tutorial here and have one main question: does this mean I now need to host two sites if moving my Wordpress site to Jamstack/Gatsby/Netlify? The tutorial doesn’t cover that. I assume you would keep your existing wordpress host and change the URL to something like admin.myexampleblog.com, and block traffic to anything but the Wordpress admin pages? And then you’d now be also paying for a Netlify plan to host your static files which would be served from www.myexampleblog.com? So in essence you are paying for this speed increase for your blog?
I just want to make sure I’m understanding the concept and how this would work. Or can this in some way tie into my current wordpress hosting plan since I will need to be keeping it for the admin anyway?
Thanks for the feedback.
