WordPress Hosting vs Managed WordPress

WordPress Hosting vs Managed WordPress

The popularity of WordPress has never been higher. Recent data available at W3Techs indicates that, as of February 2022, 43% of the world’s websites are using WordPress.

Due to its huge amount of plugins and vast assortment of customisation options, WordPress can probably handle whatever you want your website to do. The flip side of the coin is the constant stream of new updates, which can be a chore to stay on top of.

For your convenience we offer two different options: you could take the reins yourself with WordPress Hosting, or choose Managed WordPress instead and let us handle the day to day for you.

WordPress Hosting

This package lets you take full control over your website.

Simple Setup

The latest version of WordPress is automatically pre-installed for you, so you can get started straightaway with creating your perfect masterpiece.

Daily Backups

Your website is backed up daily and you’ll have backup access for either 14 or 30 days afterwards (depending on the particular plan you opt for).

Unrestricted Plugins

The whole of the WordPress world is open to you, with no limitations on the plugins or themes you can install.

Solid Security

A free SSL certificate is included as standard, along with a firewall and virus scanner, so your website will be a bastion against hackers.

Who will benefit?

  • web designers looking to create a new website from scratch
  • existing WordPress users who are already familiar and comfortable with it
  • power users who desire full control over their website and hosting

Managed WordPress

Perfect if you haven’t got the time to manage your website.

Automatic Updates

Keeping on top of all the WordPress updates can be stressful and time-consuming. We’ll install them for you, testing each one first to make sure it’s compatible.
