What Are the Experts Saying?

A review of 3 expert opinions on managed WordPress hosting

Before we start, I’d like to point out to our readers and future customers that, at My Clinical Site, we have gone to the greatest possible lengths to ensure that we can qualify as one of the best managed WordPress hosting services in America. Throughout these expert opinions, which I’m quoting verbatim from their respective websites, I have added special highlighting (♥) indicating that the features mentioned in their posts are features we offer in our three packages, Let’s Start! Let’s Grow! and Let’s Thrive!

We start with the wise words from WP Beginner.

Choosing the best WordPress hosting for your needs can improve your SEO and increase sales.

Speed, security, and reliability (♥) are all important factors that you need to consider when choosing your WordPress hosting. However, the most important factor that you should consider is “Your Needs”. Evaluating your needs before purchasing your WordPress hosting can save you hundreds of dollars.

Shared hosting (♥) is by far the most popular type of WordPress hosting used by beginners. It is the most affordable (♥) and quite frankly a good starting point for new users.

An account with one of these providers only allows you to host WordPress based sites and nothing else. The benefit of managed WordPress hosting is that you do not have to worry about ANYTHING. They optimize your site for performance (♥), make sure that your site is secure (♥), and keep regular backups (♥). On top of that they advise you if a specific plugin is having a negative impact.

Bottom line, managed WordPress hosting is hassle free fast WordPress hosting (♥) with high-quality support from staff with lots of WordPress experience (♥). While all this sounds amazing, the plans for managed WordPress hosting are usually on the higher end of the scale. For example, a personal account with a popular managed WordPress hosting provider costs $29/month where you can only host 1 site (getting maximum of 25,000 visitors per month). The next level higher where you are allowed multiple domains will cost you $99/month.

With Bluehost, you never have to worry about your website being slow even when there is a lot of traffic. Their 24/7 expert support is always there to help when you need it by phone, email (♥), or live chat (♥).

SiteGround features include automatic upgrades (♥), daily backups (♥), built-in WP caching (♥), free CDN (♥), free SSL (♥), one-click staging (♥) and GIT version control. They provide unique in-house WordPress speed and security solutions to make your site as fast and secure as possible.

You get a custom dashboard (♥), 1-click WordPress install (♥), automatic WordPress updates (♥), unlimited space, unlimited bandwidth and free SSDs (♥) which makes your site 200% faster.

(Hostinger) They offer affordable hosting (♥), 24/7 live chat support, and a robust platform (♥) to host your website. Hostinger comes with automatic 1-click WordPress install (♥), managed automatic updates (♥), enhanced security (♥), free CDN (♥), WordPress speed acceleration, and free site migration.

With 1-click WordPress installation (♥), 99.9% up time guarantee (♥), and 24/7 support, it’s a smart choice for every website owner.

What is managed WordPress hosting?
The word “managed” for WordPress means that the hosting provider handles all the basic hosting administrative tasks (♥), such as installing WordPress (♥), automating daily backups (♥), WordPress core updates (♥) and server-level caching (♥).

Managed hosting providers usually also help you in getting a leg up on their service. When you purchase a hosting package from a provider, they will walk you through the process (♥) of integrating your website on their servers.

Managed WordPress hosting providers usually only deal with that particular platform (♥).

If you don’t have the knowledge to set up your server space the way you need to in order to launch your WordPress website, or if you find you don’t have the time to do so, a managed hosting solution may be an ideal option for you to consider.

How to choose the best managed WordPress hosting for you?
Whether you have one WordPress site or 20, you’re going to want to pick a WordPress hosting service that makes your life as easy as possible (♥).

Similar to the process of choosing the best web hosting service providers, you will need to create a small checklist of the features and capabilities you are looking for in a managed WordPress hosting service.

You will also need to take pricing into consideration as managed WordPress hosting costs a fair bit more than the average shared hosting package.

Choosing the wrong managed WordPress hosting could cost you more money than you bargained for.
