Managed WordPress hosting

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

Managed WordPress hosting is a way to get a WordPress website or blog online. Managed WordPress hosting plans usually include a certain amount of space on a server with the WordPress content management system pre-installed. The web host "manages" or takes over some or all of the admin on your WordPress website. This means they'll do software updates and maintenance on your behalf, saving you time and clicks.

The short answer is — it depends on your skill level. If you're just getting started with WordPress, managed WordPress hosting is the right choice. Why? Since you don't have to worry about admin, it'll give you more time to focus on your content and make it slightly easier for you to learn the ins and outs of WordPress. Choosing Managed WP hosting also means you won't risk forgetting to update your site software, keeping you better protected from malware, viruses, and other threats.

Managed WordPress hosting may not be suitable if you design websites for clients. Many web designers would rather not work with a managed WordPress site, in favor of the design freedom that an unmanaged solution offers.

Yes! Having your managed WordPress host take over updates and maintenance doesn't just save you time, it can also improve your website's security. Why? If you update your WP site yourself, there's a real possibility you'll miss a crucial security update that can protect your website from hackers.

Unlike other providers, managed WordPress doesn't cost any more than regular WordPress hosting. With over 1 million websites websites hosted, you can count on us for reliable infrastructure, maintenance, and updating. You'll also get free features like a domain, an SSL certificate, email, and more with every managed WordPress plan.

Managed WordPress hosting

Managed WordPress solutions can vary considerably from one hosting provider to another, but one thing they all have in common is that the updates are taken care of by a third party. Purchasing a managed WordPress plan means you'll get WordPress core, security, and select software updates done for you. Since you don't have to do the updates manually, this can save you time and improve your website's security. However, if you choose this type of WordPress hosting, you'll be giving up control over your updates. It can also be slightly more expensive than non-managed or shared hosting.

That being said, managed WP is great for beginners and for people who'd rather not devote any time to doing what is essentially a rather routine task.

Unmanaged WordPress

If you go with a non-managed or standard WordPress hosting solution, you'll be solely responsible for updating your site yourself. This results in two main advantages:

  1. You'll get more control over your site. Professionals and website designers tend to prefer shared (unmanaged) WordPress hosting for this very reason.
  2. Unmanaged WordPress is typically less expensive than managed WordPress.
