What does managed WordPress hosting mean?

As a managed WordPress host, Hostmax is going to take care of a bunch of the technical nitty-gritty stuff, so you can get back to doing what you love and growing your business.

Here are the main tenets of what makes up a true managed WordPress host like Hostmax:

Managed caching and performance: We handle caching for you at the server level, using super fast servers to begin with, and even work individually with our customers to further optimize their sites for the best performance. No plugins needed!

Managed security: We proactively scan and block malware and hacking attempts. We do all of this at the server level, without the need for any plugins or configuration on the part of the customer. And in the unlikely event that your site is hacked, we’ll fix it for you, free of charge.

Managed software updates: We’ll work with you to make sure your site is always running the latest and greatest WordPress software.

Expert WordPress support: Our team of WordPress experts goes above and beyond what nearly any other managed hosting company will help out with. From “hey, I need help, I have a serious problem!“, to “can you recommend a plugin for XYZ,” we’re here to help.

Those are the core pieces of what it means to be a true managed WordPress hosting provider. If you have any questions, let us know!

How is Hostmax different from other managed WordPress hosting companies?

There are a number of things that make Hostmax stand out from other companies in the WordPress hosting industry. Here’s a nice, long list:

We ONLY host WordPress sites. We specialize in WordPress and it’s all we do, day in and day out. Our servers are tuned for WordPress, our support team is staffed with WordPress experts, and our resources are all WordPress-oriented.

Free migrations, free SSL, free demo sites, free malware cleanup. Your Hostmax plan comes with a bunch of brilliant perks for the low, low price of zero cents.

Our plans start at just $15. Other managed WordPress hosts start at two or three times that!

We have a TON of workflow tools for agencies, designers, and developers. Hostmax is so much more than a hosting company. From billing transfer to collaboration tools, we have a suite of fantastic features that are designed to make your clients happier and your life easier.

Dedicated resources. You aren’t sharing your server space with anyone else, leading to better performance and security.

99.99% uptime. It really, truly can’t get much better than that!

Support. Our team is available 24/7 for emergencies and 24 hours a day, five days a week for everything else. They’re all experts in the industry, so they can help with everything from an odd error to a recommendation for a plugin.

A custom control panel. Instead of relying on clunky cPanel, we built our own beautiful, intuitive dashboard.

Will Hostmax help me migrate my WordPress site(s)?

Absolutely!

We know how painful it can be to move a WordPress site from one server to another, and that’s why we help our customers migrate their sites – FOR FREE. We can typically get this completed for you to look at within 24 – 48 hours.

What kind of hosting product is best for me?

If you are new to web hosting or are creating a site with low to moderate amounts of traffic, Shared Hosting is likely the best option for you. It is the most affordable web hosting you can buy and will likely have more than enough resources for your site(s) to run quickly and efficiently. As your site grows and you experience increases in traffic and usage, it may be time to move up to Virtual Private Server Hosting, where you are given your own partition of a dedicated server. Finally, if you have a resource-intensive application or a site with a very high amount of traffic, you have the option of upgrading to your own Dedicated Server, which provides you with all of the server’s resources and allows you to configure it any way you see fit.

How does VPS Hosting differ from Dedicated Server Hosting and Shared Hosting?

While Dedicated Server Hosting offers isolated hardware, where resources such as disk input/output and host network connections are not shared, it also requires a significant upfront investment and a higher level of technical capability to manage it. With VPS Hosting, you share a server with other customers, but remain isolated from those other users on the server. With Virtual Private Server Hosting you are granted your own section of a partitioned dedicated server with a guaranteed threshold of dedicated RAM, storage and bandwidth and have the ability to customize this partition, much like a dedicated server. VPS Hosting provides a more cost-effective and scalable option for growing businesses when compared to Dedicated Server Hosting. On the other hand, with Shared Hosting you share a portion of the server with other users, potentially affecting your output if other users on the same server are experiencing high traffic
