Tired of getting dumped?
Other hosting companies get you to sign up and then dump you in the ever-changing sea of WordPress development. Even the so called managed hosting services do nothing more than leave all the work to you. At the core we are a hosting company but we understand not everyone is technically proficient or has the time to keep up with maintaining their WordPress application. So we behave more like a support agency than just a simple host.
We know you have questions, we know you need assistance. That’s why our pricing is based on the amount of support needed and not on something ridiculous like page view count. We are your knowledgeable partners in running your WordPress site, the geeky kids that will mold your site to work for you. Different websites have different needs, resources used is different for a magazine than an ecommerce website, lead generations have other needs, whatever it is that you want to achieve with your website we will guide you through. Find out more about our working methodology below.
Clean database is a happy database
We do proactive cleansing of your database, everyday. One of the things that almost none of the hosting companies do is help you keep your WordPress database clean and healthy. A properly maintained database makes your site faster and leaner. WordPress databases can get slow and bogged in a different number of ways such as spam comments.
Never a Multisite, always unique
Lots of host use the Multisite feature of WordPress to create your WordPress installation. While that feature has it’s own use, it also creates complications when creating your unique WordPress setup, that’s why other hosts set limits on the modifications you can make on their platform. That makes it much easier for them, and much more difficult for you to customize and protect your site. We don’t believe in that philosophy and each of our customer’s installation is uniquely their’s with it’s own installation in an isolated environment.
No bloat, lean diet
One of the great advantages of using WordPress is the extensibility of the plugins system. With hundreds of contributing developers we know and trust that the code base of WordPress core is lean, and well made.
The same can’t be said about plugins, while there are some very smartly developed plugins, not all of them are implemented correctly. Sometimes they create vulnerabilities to hacks, other times they hog system resources way more than they should, and some of them are simply not effective in what they are trying to solve. They simply create more bloat than they are worth, slowing down your site and possibly exposing you to hacks.
Two notorious categories of bloat plugins are backup and firewall plugins, even the well known premium plugins out there in these categories usually will make your site worse overall even if they sell the idea of easiness. That’s why for these two important task we don’t employ plugins, we make system wide backups and individual application backups, and create a layer system of firewall protection at the DNS level, at the server level, and at the application level.
