Is your WordPress website slow to load and you often find that some of its functions either don’t quite work or break regularly?. There could be a number of reasons for this but probably the easiest way to fix them is to use WordPress specific managed hosting with ongoing maintenance.

What is managed WordPress hosting?
With an array of different web hosting options available, it’s all too easy to get lost an endless loop of technical hosting jargon. Let’s zoom in to learn exactly what managed WordPress hosting actually is.
Instead of just hosting your WordPress site on any old server, managed hosting for WordPress is built specifically to optimise the performance of WordPress websites. This makes them faster and more reliable with stronger security. It does this by using server technology called Nginx. This clever server technology is optimised for speed and is much more efficient at loading WordPress websites than more traditional Apache server technology.
As well as a super optimised server, managed WordPress hosting also includes all the highly technical configuration and updates that normal hosting services may require you to set up. This saves you time and you can be assured that you’ve got dedicated hosting experts looking after you site.
So what are the benefits of this? – plenty, see below:
In addition managed hosting comes with secure HTTPS loading of your site built in and regular backups of your site, automatically created. It even extends to specialist support from highly experienced engineers to ensure that your site performs as optimally as possible.

What is the difference between shared hosting and WordPress hosting?
Shared hosting simply means that many websites share a server. Web hosting companies are therefore able to offer very cheap prices for shared hosting.
The downside is that there are usually hundreds of websites on each server. This can affect your site’s performance and support can be slow and unhelpful.
WordPress hosting differs from shared hosting because the hosting servers are set up specially for WordPress websites.
Is managed WordPress hosting worth it?
Yes!. In fact managed WordPress hosting actually represents significant value. Headline grabbing web hosting deals of $5 per month may sound amazing, but when you start to weigh up what you actually get, they are often underwhelming. For instance:
How many sites will be on the server? – cheaper hosts can have hundreds of sites on a server, eating up bandwidth and slowing your site down.
How much learning and configuration will you have to do to set your site up? – Cheap hosts are mostly DIY offerings, often with a steep learning curve. Your time is valuable, right?
Will your site be fully secure? – You’ll have to buy a separate SSL certificate and add it to your site in many cases.
What’s the support going to like when you need it? – Cheap hosting support can be really slow and frustrating.
Will the server be slow or even worse have significant downtime? – This is a big deal.
Will you be stuck in a long contract? – Look out for the small print, many hosts will want you to pay for a whole year upfront.
Who will carry out the WordPress updates for your site to make sure its up to date and working properly? – Even most premium WordPress hosting companies don’t offer ongoing updates and maintenance.
