Managed WordPress hosting is a hosting plan that includes some basic website management tasks such as plugin updates and regular backups. We have put a detailed article together about this topic which you can view here.
WordPress websites use something called ‘plugins’ to add additional features and functionalities to your site. Almost every single WordPress website uses at least a couple of plugins to add contact forms, maps, social media feeds and other features to your site. These plugins need to be updated regularly – not updating them is a security risk and can lead to your website getting hacked. If you are not logging into your website and updating the plugins regularly, then you should consider getting a hosting plan that includes a plugin update service.
We can take care of that for you – you’ll simply need to provide us with login details for your existing hosting provider and website and we will ensure that the website and all of its contents are migrated across to your new WP Sparks hosting account. You can learn more about migrating a WordPress website here.
The WP Sparks hosting environment has been built specifically to host WordPress websites. Using a hosting service dedicated to WordPress websites ensures your site can run optimally, with efficiencies in speed and page load time that you won’t see with other hosting providers. For more information on how hosting works, check out our article WordPress hosting for beginners here.
WP Sparks offers some of the most competitive pricing options for WordPress hosting, starting at just $35/month. We also offer two free months when you pay for your hosting annually. Find more information about our hosting packages and pricing here.
No, WordPress is not hosting your website. WordPress does partner with some hosting providers, however they are third party hosting providers. WordPress does host personal blogs, but if you wish to have a business website with a business domain name then you will need to organise a website hosting account.
