Experience the Fastest, Most Secure & Most Supported WordPress Hosting Environment Available
Whether you’re using GoDaddy, Network Solutions, Digital Ocean, or your cousin’s IT company, there’s no lack of website hosting options. So how do you know if you’ve got the right one and what should you look for?
Many organizations approach the choice of a web hosting service by perusing a list of functions instead of thinking about an overall digital marketing strategy. The right hosting service can save you time and money, and boost your productivity and site security.
One of the best website solutions Innovaxis Marketing has taken advantage of in recent years is WP Engine, a WordPress hosting platform that combines world-class digital tools and customer service at a reasonable price.
Managed Hosting Service
WP Engine is a managed hosting service, which means it’s like having a dedicated technical assistant powering your website and responding quickly to any issues as they arise. This ultimately allows you to spend more time focusing on more important, strategic tasks.
With automated management of updates and backups, fast servers, and incredibly responsive customer service, WP Engine addresses all of the WordPress security concerns of our clients.
Smart Plugin Manager & Other Updates
Most WordPress hacks happen because some combination of the website’s WordPress core module, PHP version, themes, or plugins have not been updated – sometimes for years. Because WordPress and plugin security vulnerabilities become well known quickly, it’s imperative that you update your site every month if not every week, but manually doing so can easily take at least 5-10 hours per month (if done thoroughly).
WP Engine’s Smart Plugin Manager addresses WordPress’s greatest risk in a fraction of the time compared with doing so manually. For an additional $10 per month, WP Engine will automatically update your WordPress theme and the 10-30 plugins that most WordPress sites need to function the way you want without paying a fortune for custom website development.
WP Engine also alerts you when WordPress core and PHP updates are available along with a staging environment so you can apply these updates to see if any issues arise with your site. This allows you to make corrections without compromising the integrity of the live site. Once troubleshooting and quality control are completed, you can then publish the staged site to the live site with one click—after creating a manual backup point of your site (also with one click).
Additionally, WP Engine automatically backs up your site daily and stores backups for at least 30 days. Restoring your website from a backup point can be done literally in just a few clicks.
24/7 Customer Support
WP Engine’s customer support is always available and each rep is very knowledgeable about WordPress and WP Engine’s platform, so the vast majority of issues are resolved on the first chat. We often launch new websites at night and on weekends, and the WP Engine support team is always there, is very knowledgeable, and often addresses even challenging issues on the first call.
WP Engine offers the fastest WordPress server speeds available and they regularly announce enhancements that make WordPress run even faster. Combined with the implementation of plugins like NitroPack, mobile performance scores of 95 to 100 are possible as reported by Google’s PageSpeed Insights tool.
Utilizing WP Engine with an Experienced Partner
As a result, Innovaxis Marketing regularly migrates clients with WordPress websites to WP Engine and, at this point, we wouldn’t consider any other hosting environment for WordPress.
WP Engine is well constructed, easy to use, and helps ensure your website is as secure as possible. Whether or not you choose to involve a marketing partner, WP Engine can provide best-in-class WordPress hosting and managed services.
