Managed WordPress hosting take a lot of the work off your shoulders so you can focus on driving traffic to your website and building your business.
What Is Managed WordPress Hosting
In short it is a WordPress optimized hosting platform used to build and manage WordPress sites. The entire hosting environment is built around making WordPress sites run faster and more securely.
“Managed” means that we handle basic hosting administrative tasks, such as installing WordPress and its core updates, automated daily backups, and server-level caching.
What is Included
- Performance-enhancing caching.
- Automatic WordPress core updates through WordPress’ built-in functionality.
Enhanced security through restricting file access , such as imposing strict, security-oriented limitations on certain files, distinguishing between which are will be editable and which ones will not be editable. That means you can only edit the following files
Files within the folder /wp-content
You can edit any directories or files you upload yourself, such as a
- WordPress automatically updated to the latest versions and installed in the root directory.
- sFTP access: sFTP stands for secure file transfer protocol. Access to sFTP allows you to upload files to your account through this secure transfer method. Useful for managing large file uploads to your WordPress site, or if you want to make changes to your WordPress site manually – such as installing a custom theme or plugin.
- phpMyAdmin access. php originally stood for “Personal Home Page”. It is a web scripting language. It has since become know for the recursive initialism PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. Which just mean work on the database of your website via phpMyAdmin. It is useful if you want to do a manual import or export of a database or change individual database values.
- Automatic, daily backups (30 days). These are so important for rescuing our site when thing go awry due to a plugin update or an employee mistake. Auto backups means your site can be retrieved quickly and without a long, painful road back to a working website.
- SSL included for one site. SSL, secure socket layer, improves security for your site. And of course it’s mandatory if you want to rank on Google. They did that back in 2018 to make web browsing safer. Having SSL has other benefits as well, to receive online payments, your website must be PCI compliant, and one of the compliance parameters is to have SSL. We will talk more about this in our blog. So, if you’re dying to know the ins and outs of SSL, check it out.
Limitations You Should Be Aware Of
- It does not support WordPress MU/Multisite.
- The back-end hosting does not come with a standard hosting control panel, so tools like system-level jobs aren’t available – but WordPress Crons run automatically.
