Our NZ-Based Managed WordPress Hosting has been operating for 8 months now, and already there have been many occasions when our added level of WordPress support and expertise has given our customers security and peace of mind.
WP NET does not just host your site and leave it at that — we constantly monitor the WordPress eco-sphere for important security updates, emerging threats and other risks — and when they are discovered we inform our customers and patch our systems as soon as possible. Most other hosts are not even aware of these issues and resolving them is usually left to you.
Many WordPress sites are still vulnerable to some of these threats weeks or even months later.
WP NET also monitors your website uptime and performs regular malware scans, and if we notice any performance issues with your site, we’ll get in touch and work with you to make improvements.
So, ask yourself … can you afford not to use Managed WordPress hosting?
