What is Managed Hosting at Privatenode?

In the past few months, I’ve been asked a few times: what exactly is managed WordPress hosting, and how does our managed WordPress hosting service differ from what’s already available from other providers? It’s a great question, and that will be the focus of this post.

It’s crucial for you to know exactly what you’re getting in terms of our Managed WordPress hosting service because if you don’t, you won’t fully appreciate the time and effort that goes into making sure your website is safe, secure, and super fast.

I’ve been hosting websites on various dedicated servers and virtual private servers since 2000—so I’ve been around the block, so to speak. Over the years, I’ve worked with countless small business owners, and I’ve concluded that their primary concern with their website is stability. They simply do not want to have to worry about yet another thing in their business.

How does our managed hosting service provide stability for your business website?

Well, for starters, we handle all the technical aspects of managing a WordPress website, so you don’t have to. That means we upgrade the WordPress core and any installed plugins without any intervention from you. We also monitor website responsiveness and accessibility, and if a problem arises, we immediately step in to fix the issue(s). In some cases, we fix your website before you even realize there was a problem. Additionally, we provide access to some fantastic professional plugins that, if you had to pay for them separately, would cost hundreds of dollars in recurring fees.

The second key aspect of our managed hosting service is security.

We understand that a secure website is vital for protecting your business and your customers. We implement advanced security measures to safeguard your WordPress website from threats such as malware, hacking attempts, and other vulnerabilities. We perform regular security scans and updates to ensure your website remains protected. Additionally, we provide daily backups, so in the unlikely event of data loss, we can quickly restore your website to its previous state. We bundle all of this into a comprehensive security guarantee – if your website is hacked or defaced, we’ll fix it for free.

Our managed hosting service also offers exceptional speed and performance.

A slow website can frustrate users and negatively impact your search engine rankings. To prevent this, we partner with Google Cloud and WP Engine, deploying high-performance servers optimized for WordPress to ensure your website loads quickly and efficiently. Our content delivery network (CDN), provided by Cloudflare, further enhances loading times by distributing your website’s content across multiple global servers, reducing latency for visitors from different regions and increasing security at the same time.

We’re not a faceless corporation, we’re real people.

Most other managed WordPress providers are massive multinational corporations that outsource their technical support to Asia and prioritize profits over client satisfaction. We’re the exact opposite. When you work with us, you interact with a US-based support, management and design team that genuinely cares about you and your business. Our personal responsiveness and high-quality work set us apart from the competition. We are committed to providing the best service possible because our success is directly tied to your satisfaction.

We’re your partner in success. When your business website succeeds, we succeed.

This statement may sound a bit cheesy, but we truly believe that your success is our success. We treat our clients as partners, which means we’ll always be here to help you succeed. We want our clients to know that if they have a problem, we’re here to help solve it. In the rare case where we can’t solve the problem, we’ll recommend someone who can. That level of care and attention is rare in our industry, and that’s why we have an almost perfect record with client retention. In fact, the majority of our clients have been with us for over 10 years!

In summary, our managed hosting service provides you with stability, security, and exceptional performance for your WordPress website, and ultimately your entire online business. By handling all the technical details, offering advanced security measures, and ensuring top-notch speed, we allow you to focus on what you do best—running your business.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our services, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re here to help you succeed online.

Thank you for trusting us with your WordPress website.
