We partner with WP Engine who offer managed WordPress hosting which means your sites run faster, are secure, protect your brand and help grow your business.
WP Engine Hosting Platform
We manage hosting for over 150 WordPress sites for our clients. Our preferred platform is secure, scalable and reliable. Websites are hosted in data centres in London and across the EU.
WP Engine offer free migration, daily offsite backups and optimisation for performance using PHP7. Your sites will be protected with Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates and WordPress security monitoring.
A staging environment alongside your website means we have a working a copy that can be used to test plugin and theme updates without affecting your live site.
Our chosen platform uses PHP7 to provide very quick WordPress performance – the frontend and backend of your website will run quicker using PHP7 and we’ll help out with any compatibility issues you might have when migrating.
Single Point of Contact
Having your site hosted with one of our preferred suppliers means you have a single point of contact in the UK for any WordPress query. No more trying to decide if your website has a hosting problem, or a WordPress problem – we’re here to help.
With nightly backups and one-click restores for both your live website and staging copy, it means we always have a backup on hand if required. Restoring your site takes less than five minutes to any backup point.
HOW IT WORKS
We offer free migrations from your existing WordPress host onto one of our preferred platforms. We just need a WordPress administrator username and password.
Control Panel Access
You’ll have access to a control panel for you to manage and monitor your website. This includes backups, configuring domains, SFTP users, SSL certificates and live chat with WP Engine.
If your site doesn’t currently have a SSL certificate then we’ll configure one for free using Let’s Encrypt.
Backups will automatically start when we have migrated your website. These occur nightly and allow for one-click restores.
Content Delivery Network
WP Engine offer a Content Delivery Network (CDN) service that we’ll configure for you. CDNs make your websites load quicker by offloading assets (e.g images) to geographically closer servers to your visitors.
