Managed WordPress hosting and why it’s important

This article is from Managed WordPress Hosting Provider, WPHive.org. They have an excellent, all inclusive, Managed WordPress Hosting plan for only $69 per month. The managed plan takes complete care of your website from front to back. Including daily backups, security patches, and routine WorPress management, such as updating plugins and theme care.

Their WordPress website hosting plan includes unlimited bandwidth and 20GB of storage, hosted on LiteSpeed Web Servers. The LiteSpeed Web Server is the 4th most popular web server on the internet.

WordPress is free but managing your website takes skill.

Managed WordPress hosting is important and here’s why.

You might think that once you install WordPress, choose a theme and plugins, and add in your content, you’re done. But that’s only the beginning.

WordPress needs TLC, all of the time, in the form of backups, upgrades and security patches against Malware and brute force hacker attacks. If you install WordPress then you need to make an ongoing commitment to keep your website up to date and secure.

If you have taken the time and trained yourself to manage your WordPress website, and know how to restore it in the case of a crash, keeping it up to date is not that difficult. But, if you are not committed then it’s important to have someone on your team that can handle any issues that may come up, or hire a professional to care for your website. Read Article
