There are a ton of reasons why managed WordPress hosting for multifamily websites is a great option. From blazing fast speed or tight-knit security, the price you pay for managed hosting is 100% worth it compared to bottom-of-the-barrel shared hosting solutions.
Okay, what the heck is Managed WordPress Hosting?
Managed hosting for your multifamily WordPress site is a white glove hosting service where everything from updates, security, and performance is managed for you.
While we don’t force clients to host their website with us, we highly recommend managed WordPress hosting over the lower-quality shared hosting solutions. If you’re paying $5 for hosting, you will likely get what you pay for.
Today we’re sharing five reasons why managed hosting for your multifamily Website or business is the way to go:
01 – Everything is Taken Care of For You
Upgrades, security, migrations, you name it – we’ll handle it. In the long run, this absolutely winds up saving you time, money, IT resources, and so much more. Now you can use that extra budget for even more ways to bring people to your multifamily website – such as paid digital advertising.
02 – Your WebSite Gets Its Own Dedicated Resources
With our platform (powered by Google Cloud!), your multifamily website won’t have to share resources like you do on shared hosting. This means no one’s site will interfere with your performance or security; it’s safe and sound.
03 – Managed Hosting Is Crazy Fast
We (aka Flywheel) tunes servers for optimal WordPress performance and they configure all the caching, so you don’t have to spend time worrying about site speed! Why is site speed important? Many reasons! SEO and user-experience are two of the strongest reasons (BTW, you can check your website speed for free here). Who is going to wait around for your site to load? No one.
04 – Top-Notch Security
According to Accenture, security breaches have increased by 67% over the past five years. Yikes.
Even with shared hosting on some of the low-cost solutions (hosts like GoDaddy, Bluehost, Hostgator, Siteground, etc.) you’ll need to spend time and resources backing up your multifamily website and making sure it’s protected from the latest malware or hacker attempts. Or you’ll also find that support can be hard to come by.
Plus, you’ll spend energy being constantly worried about what will happen not if, but WHEN your site gets compromised. And lastly, when the hosting plan is so cheap, we’re certain your site will be living in an overcrowded server to consolidate resources. Any performance issues that pop up with other sites can, in turn, affect your site. We’ve been there…trust us. Malware is a beast.
Our hosting platform, Flywheel, is on top of the latest security vulnerabilities and proactively blocks threats whenever possible. And IF (that’s a big “if”!) your site is somehow compromised; they’ll fix it for free.
05 – A True Partner
When you contact us, you’ll get a real-live human on the other end, rather than dealing with a robot! And if you have any technical questions, we will find the answer.
So, in a nutshell, all of this means total peace of mind. You can stop worrying about your website speed, hackers, and your site performance and instead, spend that time running your business.
