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 that requires you to do a lot of work on the backend—updating WordPress plugins, patching security, taking care of administrative tasks. And with regular hosting, you may be on the phone for hours until you find a WordPress expert that can actually help you. With managed WordPress hosting, your host takes care of all of that. Nexcess takes on tedious tasks like plugin updates and backups. And we also support you 24/7/365. If you have a question or concern, our WordPress specialists can give you advice and recommendations.

Managed hosting costs more because your host maintains your system hardware and WordPress software for optimum performance. 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. While cheap hosting may save you money in the short term, managed hosting saves you money and stress in the long run. Managed WordPress hosting is worth the cost.

There are a lot of managed hosting options, we’ll admit it. Nexcess managed WordPress hosting is different because we’ve optimized for what WordPress users need to run a successful online business. Performance, security, scalability, and flexibility are built into the platform. Nexcess provides more PHP workers per site.

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
