The major difference between WordPress hosting and other types of web hosting are that WordPress is software whereas the rest are types of hosting. Let me explain: WordPress provides you software to download its web-hosting plan. This is not something shared hosting, VPS hosting or a dedicated server hosting provides.

WordPress hosting should include platform-particular quality and optimizations not normally included in basic shared hosting plans. and Web hosting typically refers to some form of shared hosting, where many websites share the space and computing sources of one server. Web hosting parasol covers other server configurations such a VPS Hosting, dedicated hosting, Cloud Hosting.

WordPress is probably the most popular open-source CMS. WordPress hosting is essentially a web hosting platform (cloud/shared/vps) that comes with WordPress one-click installation and is optimized for WordPress's performance to ensure they load and run faster. Some hosting provider also provide software support for their WordPress Hosting services.

In Simple Words, WordPress Hosting is a Platform where you can host a CMS or WordPress website but web hosting is a way on which you can host a website on a different host like Dedicated Server, VPS Server, Shared Hosting, and more.

Web hosting is just a type of hosting plan where your site shares resources with other sites on the same server. But, WordPress hosting is just hosting that optimized your website and give a better performance for WordPress sites and get better resource like RAM, CPU & IO limit.

"wordpress hosting" plans just webhosting plans, that may have tailored resource limits for
RAM, CPU & IO for WordPress installations. Some feature auto-installer and/or automatic updates.

Personally i like just setting up resource limits so that clients are free to run whatever common web-apps they may want.
The "auto install" from the control panel makes stuff a bit easier and has the advantage of auto-updats out of the box.

However i have also read on various forums about proviers where word press hosting" is just used for marketing and its actually web-hosting plan as the standard ones at higher price.

WordPress is a software where you can download the hosting plan whereas web hosting is the types of different web hosting available in the market. Other web hosting like shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated hosting, and cloud hosting. Web hosting is much bigger than WordPress which refers to a particular niche.
