Hi, and welcome to our site. We are a full-service website design, support and hosting company, specialising in Managed WordPress hosting for businesses.
Meet Alice and Bob. They own a small business, and understand that their website is as important as their shopfront. Alice and Bob are great at running a successful business, and are 100% focussed on delivering an amazing service that is attractive to their customers.
Last night, Alice and Bob’s website was hacked…
The need for website maintenance
As an experienced technology professional and business owner, I see too many associates of mine signing up for cheap BYO hosting, installing WordPress and a random internet theme plus a handful of plugins, then subsequently forget about their site.
Worse, some have sites designed and delivered by “professionals”, who install second-rate plugins and fail to deliver any form of support, upgrades, security fixes, backups and performance checks. Using cookie-cutter templates, these people are only in it for the quick buck, and will churn your website out the door as quickly as possible!
- denial of service (as the target)
- SQL injections
- cross-site scripting attacks
- remote control
- malicious content delivery
- theft of customer data
Just like a car, your website is a complex and dynamic product that requires regular maintenance and servicing. The difference with a website is that there are people trying to actively break into it, 24/7! Would you leave your car unlocked in some suburbs - hell no! You would invest in great security (alarms, theft-proof wheel nuts, toughened glass) and that's even before you get in and drive. A Managed WordPress Hosting service looks after both the security - and maintenance - of your website, for a low monthly fee.

How do I choose a good managed host?
Technology can be challenging to the best of us, and when it comes to comparisons between hosting providers, confusion reigns supreme! You’ve got bandwith, operating system, disk space, email accounts, databases, domains, SSL, cPanel – it’s enough to send anyone bonkers!
I’m sure the normal hosting companies know this, so they try to put as much information in lists as possible to appear like they have the “best” packages with the most features.
But the question that needs to be asked – and answered – is:
How does your hosting provider add value to your business?
The answer – most of them don’t. Hosting is a commodity, not a service. True value comes when your provider protects your website, makes sure it is available as your marketing tool, backs it up and restores it when needed, keeps the nuts-and-bolts technology updated and secure, and finally gives you, the business owner, peace of mind.
The solution – secure hosting, solid design, robust plugins and our Managed WordPress Hosting service!
- About 25% of all the world’s websites are built on WordPress
- There’s an estimated 30,000 WordPress websites hacked each day
- Most successful hacks are due to old WordPress versions (more than 50%), vulnerable plugins (25%) and poor host security (the rest)
You wouldn’t trust your car to your dentist for maintenance – and vice versa for your teeth – so why trust your primary business marketing tool to someone that doesn’t understand its importance?
Rather than just a budget host, consider an expert in maintaining the performance and security of your business asset. More than just providing server space, an expert considers other attributes like security, performance, updates, protection, backups and reporting.
With a 24/7 support portal, you are assured that any issues will be tracked, actioned and closed as fast as possible – keeping your website online for your customers to see.
