3 reasons managed WordPress hosting is perfect for your business
Managed WordPress hosting, shared hosting, dedicated hosting…the list of hosting options goes on and on. And if you’re brand new to the hosting sphere, it can be a little overwhelming at first. After all, you’ll want to know that your site will be safe and secure so hackers can’t mess things up. You’ll want the performance to be stable and speedy so users can access your content quickly and reliably. And you’ll want to know that you’re paying for a quality service with a knowledgeable support team that’s always ready to help when you need it.
So, who do you trust with your WordPress site? My pick is a managed WordPress host, and I’ve got three good reasons why.
1. All they do is WordPress
As you’re researching which host to trust with your beautiful site, you’ll notice there are quite a few who seem to do it all. While that might look impressive at first glance, it’s actually a bit of a disadvantage. With a managed WordPress host like Flywheel, they only host WordPress sites – meaning everything is 100% fine-tuned for WordPress sites.
From server configurations to caching settings to security best practices, the folks behind a managed WordPress host are truly experts in the platform your site is running on. This means they always know the current best practices, and can help with a wide-variety of WordPress issues (even if they’re not directly related to hosting).
2. Managed WordPress hosts take care of the technical stuff
Hosting a website isn’t just a walk in the park – there are constantly updates that need to be performed, hackers that need to be kept out, performance enhancements that need to happen, and so on and so on.
If you’re passionate about learning those things and updating the site yourself, you might not mind some of the legwork that comes with hosting a website. But for a lot of people, it’s a huge relief to offload some of that work, and you can offload it right onto a managed WordPress host!
Take Flywheel, for instance. We handle all your WordPress core upgrades, security enhancements, performance settings (all tailored for WordPress!) so you don’t have to worry about a thing. We take care of the mess so you can just be the brilliance behind your work!
3. Your site lives on its own server
That’s right – with managed WordPress hosting on Flywheel, your site lives on its own server, meaning no other sites can mess with it. Shared servers, on the other hand, put multiple sites in the same space. If one were to get hacked or experience a huge traffic spike, it could bring your site crashing down, at no fault of your own.
While that’s not always the case, I prefer not to risk it. With managed WordPress hosting, you know your site isn’t competing for resources with anyone else, which means more reliable uptime, more business knocking on your door, and ultimately more profit!
Hosting is one of those things where you truly get what you pay for, so it’s worth going all in on a quality host. Interested in learning more? Check out this free ebook all about the value of managed WordPress hosting.
Think about it: how much time have you spent struggling with support teams, messing with malware, playing with plugins, sweating over server optimization, and dealing with downtime? All of those hours add up to some serious time that could be better spent running your business.
In a nutshell, that’s the value of managed WordPress hosting; all of those performance, speed, and security concerns are taken care of for you so never have to think about them and can get back to doing the things you love.
Whether you need to convince a client or are concerned about your own site’s current host, this free guide breaks down all the brilliant reasons why managed WordPress hosting is the way to go (and is way better than shared hosting!).
