Managed WordPress Hosting Now Available for All Care Plan Customers
As many of you may or may not know, we have been quietly and reliably hosting many larger customer sites for over a decade on our servers on a as-requested basis. During this time, we primarily shied away from hosting more websites as we felt that our partner providers have been able to meet client needs as well as we wanted to ensure our customers choose to stick with us because they want to, not because they have to.
As time has gone on though, more customers have asked for direct managed hosting with us to simplify their website management process. When questions or concerns come up, many of you would prefer to limit the ‘cooks in the kitchen’ and have one party responsible for the website application itself as well as the web hosting since they are very dependent on each other.
With this in mind, we are excited to announce that our managed hosting services to all existing and new customers on care plans as an add-on care plan feature. Since all customers who are already on a care plan have had the ins and outs of their site code audited and our team is ultimately responsible for the technical website, this provides a full circle option for our customers looking to reduce headache from having another party involved with their website as well as the complexity of multiple monthly bills.
What makes our managed WordPress hosting different from others? We have several features that you just can’t get at traditional managed hosting companies due to our knit relationships with customers on care plans:
One Source of Support
When support is needed, our team knows the entire history and details of stack of your website. No running back and forth between the web host and our team to resolve any issues. We can provide clear direction and resolve issues as efficiently as possible, saving time and money.
Greater Website Optimization
Unlike any traditional setups where issues can be related to your web host, since we host the site as well as maintain your WordPress site, we are not limited by any hosting constraints or limitations to make sure your website is fully optimized to be the best it can be. We have the power to change your hosting settings to make any necessary changes happen.
Faster Website Speed
By hosting the websites, we can configure more granular speed enhancements that are specific to your website such as a content delivery network as well as premium DNS to make sure your website is fast as possible.
Optimal Hosting for Your Unique Setup
We have configured hosting for YOUR website. Our team knows your website inside and out so we can can properly configure the hosting for the optimal setup down to the last code.
Less Chance of Things Breaking
As with any software, web hosts must run software updates on your server at times. This is not ideal since these changes can break your site. When we run the server updates on our own servers, so we can manually test with your website’s configuration before pushing live so there is less chance of update incompatibility.
We will be contacting current care plan customers in the coming months to discuss the details of the program, but expect this to be an affordable alternative to hosting with a third party provider. For customers who do sign-up for this care plan add-on, we will migrate the site and configure the hosting at no extra cost.
