Managed Hosting means that we handle every aspect of your hosting experience, from ensuring security updates are performed on a consistent basis, to making sure that your website has enough resources to meet its needs. We believe in making your hosting simple, and as such all our plans feature unlimited storage, bandwidth, and Monthly Visitors.
Part of managed hosting is security and plugin updates. Many companies in the industry offer automatic updates so that your site is always up to date, but they leave the updates to a robot. We have seen how frequently a plugin update can make a change that dramatically breaks the function or look of a website, so every week our team performs a complete site backup, updates your website then completes a three-point QA Check on the site to ensure that everything is still looking and working great.
When something breaks during an update our team will determine the extent of the problem, and most minor problems are fixed automatically as part of your hosting fees. If the problem is substantially more complicated we will revert the update, contact you about the problem, and provide a quote for repair at our discounted hourly rate.
The first line of defence against most website problems is a robust backup system. All sites hosted with us have daily backups that are stored securely in off-site cloud storage. We retain 90 days of backups for all sites, so even if a problem goes undetected for a while we can find and repair the differences. We also have a secondary backup system at the server level, so even in catastrophic failures we can get your site back up and running again quickly.
Separate your domain’s identity onto its own dedicated I.P address. Isolate your reputation and avoid sharing an I.P address with anyone else. Ideal for companies who want to keep their reputation in their hands only.
