Managed WordPress hosting, shared hosting, dedicated hosting ... the options are endless. And as someone trying to focus on the day to day operations of your business, it can be overwhelming to make the right choice. In the end, you just want to know that your site is safe and secure from hackers getting into it and wreaking havoc. You'll want stable performance and solid up time so that users can access your content quickly and reliably. Finally, you'll want to know that you're paying for a quality service with a knowledgeable support team ready to help when needed.
With that in mind, who do you trust with your website? Our pick (and what we offer our customers) is a managed WordPress host, and we've got three good reasons why:
1. ALL THEY DO IS WORDPRESS
As you're researching which host to trust with your beautiful site, you'll notice that there are quite a few who seem to offer it all. While that might look impressive at first glance, its actually a bit of a disadvantage. With a managed WordPress host, they only host WordPress sites - meaning everything is 110% fine-tuned for WordPress.
From server configurations to caching settings to security best practices, the folks behind a managed WordPress hosting company are the true experts of their domain.
PaintedRobot only develops on WordPress, so using a WordPress Managed Hosting partner is a no-brainer for us.
2. MANAGED WORDPRESS HOSTINGS TAKE CARE OF THE TECHNICAL STUFF
Hosting a website isn't a walk in the park - there are constant updates that need to be done to keep hackers out, performance fine-tuned, etc.
If you're passionate about learning and keeping on top of these things, then you won't mind the work involved in hosting your own site. But for a lot of business owners, its a huge time savings to offload this work so that they can continue to focus on their day to day operations.
PaintedRobot handles all of your WordPress core upgrades, plugin upgrades, security enhancements, performance fine-tuning and more.

3. YOUR SITE LIVES ON ITS OWN SERVER
That's right - with managed WordPress hosting on PaintedRobot, your site lives on its own server, meaning no other sites can mess with it. Shared servers, on the other hand, pack on as many sites as they can in the same space. If one site were to get hacked or experience a huge traffic spike, it could bring your site crashing down, at no fault of your own.
While that isn't always the case, why risk it? With managed WordPress hosting, you know your site isn't competing for resources with other sites on the same server. This means more reliable uptime and ultimately, more businesses knocking on your door.
When it comes to hosting, you really do get what you pay for, so its worth going all in on a quality host. Interested in learning more? Give us a shout at email@example.com.
