Choose a Host Who Knows How to Help
Nexcess has an excellent support team that eats, sleeps, and breathes WordPress. You won’t have to keep repeating yourself, deal with upselling to fix a minor problem, or waste time.
We all make mistakes — and sometimes you may change a setting or delete something you shouldn’t have. We’re not going to judge.

Support has been wonderful. They even helped me work out something that I screwed up that wasn't Nexcess's fault.

If It’s Slow, It’s Gotta Go
Site visitors will go elsewhere if your site takes too long to load. That’s why it’s critical to have a host that accelerates your site. “The one thing I hear from people over and over is that Nexcess hosting on my site is SUPER fast,” says Michelle Frechette of Stellar WP.
Web Developer and founder of HeroPress Topher DeRosia tells us that “having caching built in and customized to a specific server is a big deal.”
53% of mobile users leave a site if it doesn’t load in 3 seconds.

Security You Don’t Have to Think About
Fun fact: most people don’t trust websites that don’t display that little padlock symbol, and for good reason. Visitors to your site are going to want to know their data is safe with you.
You’ve probably seen lots of data breaches in the news. Even giants like GoDaddy have been victim to them.
With Nexcess, our proactive monitoring ensures that we never miss a beat. We’ve got boots on the digital ground so you can stick to the work that’s meaningful for your business.
Nexcess keeps your site secure with:
SSL certificates
DDoS protection
Always-on monitoring

Nexcess-Exclusive Features

Built-in tools help you have successful WordPress sites and stores.
Plugin Performance Monitor
Get actionable and prescriptive insights to improve site performance.
Sales Performance Monitor
Provides critical insights into sales trends and alerts store owners if sales slow down.
Built-In Automated Testing
Empowers online store owners to fix issues and keep their stores defect free.
Scale When You Need It
A downed site can be caused by any number of things — but a common one is a large surge of traffic that your plan can’t handle.
Unfortunately, many hosts resolve this by offering more expensive plans. Suddenly a $5/month plan is $200, then $500, then $2000. That doesn’t seem fair if you don’t need that capacity year round.
Scalability is a big deal, and with Nexcess you’re ready for any influx of site visitors.
We allow you to bypass PHP capacity limits — and have instant upgrades to help you quickly meet increased demand without a headache or an hour on the phone.
Nexcess has built something really cool. It doesn’t break down when too many people come to your site

Free, Easy Migrations
If you’re looking at all the benefits Nexcess has to offer — you have some great reasons to migrate over to us. But don’t worry — Nexcess makes migrating your site easy. It’s included free with all plans, and you don’t need to lift a finger.
Michelle Frechette recently created a few sites with Nexcess and she described a seamless experience.
“It propagated quickly. People didn’t even notice. There was NO downtime.”

Your Data Should Be Yours
If you’ve built a website on closed source software like Shopify, we’ve got some bad news for you: you don’t actually own your data. You can’t take it with you if you want to change hosts. And you’ll have to rebuild your site from scratch.
That’s not cool.
But with Nexcess, your data is YOUR data.
Nexcess gives you access to all of your data — and our daily backups make sure you keep everything you’ve worked so hard on.
You don’t really own your own data if your provider won’t let you get to it.
