Managed WordPress hosting from Winterhost

We provide a managed WordPress hosting and support service to UK-based clients.

What do we mean by ‘managed’ WordPress hosting?

We believe all websites should be hosted properly, and we believe conventional hosting doesn’t quite cut it. Conventional web hosting involves having your website published to a hosting environment and then leaving it there, and for us it’s the ‘leaving it there’ that causes problems.

Managed hosting involves having your website published to a hosting environment and then having an expert look after it for you. It typically offers enhanced performance and security that you simply won’t get with conventional hosting.

If your website is a WordPress website, who updates it when WordPress releases a new version? Do you know how to protect your site from dodgy plug-ins and malware? And what about back-ups, who does those?

What’s included?

Our hosting includes many things you won’t get with other hosting providers as standard, and some won’t be able to provide these at all. Read our hosting comparison chart below to find out what you get with us.
