You may have seen the term “fully managed” when looking through our hosting options. The term means that, while the hosting account is yours, the backend software is managed by our team of skilled technicians. You don’t have to worry about keeping your server software up-to-date or troubleshooting backend problems, we’ll do that for you.
If you are looking into creating a WordPress site, a fully managed hosting account can add many benefits. Our managed WordPress hosting servers come installed with WordPress, NGINX, and Varnish, which work together to make your WordPress site blazing-fast.
We also handle WordPress and server operating system updates, so your WordPress installation and server will always be up-to-date.
Why does it matter for WP Hosting?
Here are some reasons why having a fully managed hosting option is important on WordPress.
Minimal Setup Needed
Setting up the backend of a server can be time-consuming, especially if you’re not familiar with the process. Having a managed server cuts out this setup time and allows you to jump straight into your site development.
Our managed WordPress hosting option comes with WordPress-specific features to help you get your site up and running. Our keynote features are:
- Easy WordPress site creation: with WordPress pre-installed, setting up a site on your server is as easy as clicking a few buttons and typing in some information.
- One-click staging area: You can create a staged site to test changes or redesigns without affecting your live site. When finished, you can publish your changes to the live site with a click of a button.
- Automatic site backups: Backups come in handy when an unexpected break happens in your site. You can save yourself hours of troubleshooting by just rolling your site back.
Because we set the hosting server up for you, we ensure that the server has software that will perform well with WordPress. We use a combination of Varnish and NGINX so your sites will be able to run at optimal speed.
Updates, both for WordPress and the operating system, usually include security patches against the most recent threats. So keeping your WordPress installation and OS updated is very important to keeping your site protected. With unmanaged or only partially managed hosting options, you would need to perform the updates yourself. With our fully managed WP accounts, though, we’ll automatically do the updates for you, so you don’t have to worry about it.
