The old saying goes, ‘Time is money.’ And in the digital age, that saying goes tenfold. Just one second in page load speed can mean the difference between getting a customer’s attention, or losing a customer for life. When it comes to WordPress, there are tons of ways you can save time, and managed WordPress hosting is one of them.
See, when you trust your site to a company that specializes in WordPress hosting, like Pressable, you gain tons of advantages over other hosting companies. Like what?
1) Say ‘Goodbye!’ to (some) Updates
One of the great things about WordPress is that it changes all the time. Updates to features and security happen seemingly every day. But for people who have a life, performing these updates can be a chore.
Don’t worry! At Pressable, we live a breathe WordPress. We take care of any updates to the WordPress core, like known security vulnerabilities in WordPress.org hosted plugins, so no more sitting around waiting for a core update to load. We’ll take care of it with smiles on our faces.
2) Speed up Your Site
Does this sound familiar? You click on a site or type in a URL…and wait…and wait…and wait… You get the idea. Well, that doesn’t happen with managed WordPress hosting. See, we specialize in WordPress websites, so we optimize our servers to speed up page load times.
Did you know that 45% of users expect a webpage to load within two seconds of clicking? And 40% of users said that they would leave a website if it didn’t load within three seconds of clicking. It’s amazing that one second can mean the difference between gaining a customer or losing them for good. Is your site losing you customers because of slow load times? Managed WordPress hosting can help.
3) We’ve Got Your Back
Imagine waking up one morning and finding that your website is gone. Yup, gone. Poof. All of your hard work, just gone. It can happen, and it can be devastating to your business. But with Pressable’s managed WordPress hosting, we’ll get your back…up.
We’ll use our servers to backup your websites every hour. So no matter what happens, if a plugin update failed, or if you’re trying your hand at writing a few lines of code, you’ve always got a backup.
4) Security Is Our Specialty
You might’ve read something recently about Google docking sites for not being secure. In short, if your site doesn’t have an SSL certificate, Google will now be denoting your site as ‘Not Secure’ next to the URL. Everyone that visits your website will know that your site isn’t secure and will not protect their personal data.
But if you’ve got managed WordPress hosting with Pressable, we take care of that for you. We install SSL certificates for all our clients’ websites and subdomains. So instead of stressing out over website and data security, you can sit back and rest easy, knowing that your host is taking care of everything for you.
So really…what are you waiting for? If we didn’t convince you, contact one of our representatives today and learn more about what managed WordPress hosting can do for your website.
