Managed WordPress hosting FAQ

There are companies who provide a space where you can run PHP and MySQL code and call it “WordPress hosting.” But, it’s basic hosting with “WordPress” in the name.

They take care of security patches, plugin updates, backend maintenance, backups, and more. The best WordPress providers offer responsive, WordPress-specific guidance without making you pay extra.

It also comes with features that help you build and manage a WordPress site: migrations, plugins, performance tools, SSLs, CDNs, virus and security protection, and more.

Been Loving Every Single Minute

We recently switched over to Nexcess for our WordPress hosting and have loved every minute! Our web speed has improved and their support team is ALWAYS helpful and friendly

- Carol

Patient Support, Excellent Service

When I started with Nexcess Hosting a few years ago, I was inexperienced. I utilize their Woo and WP optimized hosting and not only did I learn so much from their Knowledge Base, I also received excellent and patient replies when making direct inquiries- solutions to my issues were always addressed and rectified quickly

- Fredric

I've been with Nexcess 13 years and still a fan

They are always willing to go the extra mile. When we migrated to BigCommerce I was encouraged by an outside party to switch hosting, but because of how amazing Nexcess has been I decided to stay. Nexcess excels and shines at being

- Zoe

With fully managed hosting from Nexcess, better is built in
