Managed, Supported & Done For You WordPress Hosting
Focus on what you’re good at, let us focus on the technology that keeps your clients’ websites running securely and as fast as possible.
Every WordPress website deserves to be fast. Using best in class Virtual Private Servers (VPS) from Digital Ocean, Google Cloud, AWS, or whoever is next inline to compete, we optimize our servers specifically for WordPress and implement server level page and object caching so you can leave the performance and caching plugins behind.
High End Security
Hacked websites are the last thing you or your clients want to be dealing with. All deployed servers are locked down to prevent threats from reaching your clients’ website. If something does get through, our file and database scanner will detect and eliminate the threat before Google has a chance of blacklisting the site from searches.
When running your own VPS, server resources and underlying processes need to be monitored and managed — either by you or someone else. We keep a close eye on all the critical aspects of your server(s) to ensure your clients’ websites stay up and running when they are needed most. Even if we end up with some late nights fixing or reconfiguring somthing, you can be sure to sleep at night.
Migrations can be extremely time conusming and, in some cases, extremely complex. We will take care of migrating every single one of your clients’ websites to their new server with zero downtime. You won’t have to get involved with any of the technical details, but you can take all of the credit when your clients’ website gets a boost in performance once on a server optimized by our setup.
Backups, Backups, and More Backups
If you had insurance that covered everything and always paid out when something bad happened would you buy it? That’s what backups are. Backups are the single most cost-effective investment anyone can make in your business. We make sure you and your clients are covered.
Every website comes with a staging area. Easily create an exact replica of your clients’ production website to test a new plugin or theme or redesign a page or the entire site and share it with your client. When ready, the staging site can be copied back to production in a matter of minutes.
Free SSL Certificates
Most hosting providers provide free SSL certifcates because every website, big or small, should have one. SSL certificates are installed by default on every website we setup. All expiration dates are monitored and we ensure each certificate is renewed and working properly. One less thing for you to think about.
You and your clients gain access to our highly-skilled support team. Generally, our hosting platform runs without a hitch due to our team monitoring our servers and resources constantly. 99% of the time, a hosting related issue brought to our attention is already being worked on. But, we’re still here for you to help with any issues or answer any questions you might have.

Turn Recurring Revenue into Profit
If you are not providing website hosting for your clients, you should be! You are leaving money on the table.
If you are, you are likely reselling hosting with SiteGround, GoDaddy, a higher end “managed hosting” provider like WP Engine, Kinsta, or you’ve been brave enough to get a little more hands on with Cloudways or GridPane. All viable options, each with their own benefits and drawbacks.
Think about the last 3, 6 or 12 months. How much time and effort did you spend dealing with hosting related issues, questions or nuisances? Things that took you away from your primary business: setting up a new website, migrating a website from one host to another, optimizing a website, managing caching plugins, debugging caching issues, dealing with hosting related issues, working with level one hosting support, keeping each website secure, wresting with security plugins, thinking about IF each website is really secure, cleaning up a hacked site, the list goes on and on.
After all of that time, effort, and stress, how much profit was left?
What if you didn’t have to deal with any of that, but you could still keep the revenue?
