There are a ton of reasons why managed WordPress hosting is a really awesome solution for your business. Whether it’s providing super fast speed or tight-knit security, the price you pay for managed hosting is 100% worth it compared to bottom-of-the-barrel shared hosting solutions. The way I see it – you get what you pay for. And when you pay RM9.99 for hosting, you will get a hosting solution that’s worth RM9.99 (plus, you’ll end up dealing with the downfalls yourself or paying a third-party to patch it up). With managed hosting, you’re paying for just that – a hassle-free hosting solution that’s managed for you. Sounds pretty great, right? Here are six reasons why managed hosting is the way to go.
1. Everything is taken care of for you
Upgrades, security, migrations, you name it – they’ll handle it. With cheap hosting solutions, you will end up spending hours making sure everything’s running smoothly. That’s time your designer/developer could be using to work on your WordPress site, or time you could be using to take care of your day-to-day business. With managed hosting, we handle the messy, technical details that nobody wants to spend their valuable hours on! In the long run, this absolutely winds up saving you time, money, IT resources, and so much more.
2. Your site gets its own dedicated resources
Your site is directly tied to your livelihood! If your site is slow or not working for any reason, it can really impact your business. The managed WP puts your site on a dedicated VPS, whereas shared hosting is just that: a shared server. That means that your site is directly tied to this big pool of other sites, and can be affected by any one of them: for example, if another site on that server gets a bunch of trafc, your site could go down. When your site is hosted on the managed WP, you can rest assured that no one else will mess up your site’s performance or impact your business.
3. Managed hosting is blazing fast
Shared hosts cram as many sites as possible onto one server. As for managed hosting? We treats every website we host like the unique creation that it is. They fine-tune their servers for optimal WordPress performance and configure all the caching, which means nobody has to set up caching plugins or spend time worrying about site speed.
4. Top-notch security
With shared hosting on GoDaddy or any of those cheaper solutions, you’ll need to spend time and resources backing up your site and making sure it’s protected from the latest malware or hacker attempts. Plus, you’ll spend energy being constantly worried about that will happen not if, but when your site gets compromised. The managed WP is completely on top of the latest security vulnerabilities and will keep you (or whoever you want to be) informed on threats and proactively block them whenever they can. It seriously slims down the possibility that your site will be compromised. And IF (and that’s a big “if”) your site is somehow compromised, you will get it fixed for free.
5. They’ve got your back
When your site is down and you call “the other hosting guys,” you’re either going to have to go through a ton of steps to get the help you need, or you’re going to talk to a robot. With the managed WP, you have the best support around via live chat, phone, or email. When you call, you’ll get a real-live human on the other end. I fnd this so incredibly valuable for all of my clients, especially since your designer/developer/IT person can’t possibly be available 24/7 for emergencies. And if you have any technical questions, they’re staffed with total WordPress experts.
