Best Managed WordPress Hosting Platform for Domains

You have most probably heard of or encountered this scenario before. You land on the perfect domain name and pleasantly discover that you can secure it for less than a dollar! Genuinely excited, you quickly pay for it, only to learn that you have to pay extra for the associated email package. No problem! Still excited, you pay for that too. Only to learn that it doesn’t come with hosting and at this point, with excitement starting to wane, you reluctantly pay for it. With time, your site usage starts to outstrip the bandwidth allocated and your visitors are regularly welcomed by the same “exceeded bandwidth limit” banner on your website! Unfortunately the above scenario is a common experience in instances where not all the costs are transparently displayed. In this review, I will share the best managed wordpress hosting platform for domains currently on the market and hopefully, save you a lot of nightmares.

What is Managed WordPress Hosting?

Just to break it down a bit more, “Hosting” is basically the online platform or server in instances where the photos, videos, text, databases and all “assets” associated with your website are stored and made accessible to your visitors. “WordPress” is the world’s most popular free and open-source Content Management System (CMS). A CMS is software that can help you create, modify and manage digital content usually for websites, without the need extensive knowledge of graphical design or programming.

To loop it all in, Managed WordPress Hosting is a service whereby aspects related to your WordPress website such as: redundancy; ensuring that your website is always reachable no matter what, backups; in the event of a crash, security; protection from cyber attacks, updates of major software and other tasks are handled on your behalf by a provider. That said, I will now share why I think Wealthy Affiliate offers the best managed wordpress hosting platform on the market today.

Double Hosting

Wealthy Affiliate provides what is known as “double hosting” or redundancy for your website. What this means is that your website is hosted not only in one but two locations, and should one of them go down for whatever reason, the other will kick right in, guaranteeing your online presence at all times.

Hosting Security

According to an article published on isitwp, WordPress with over 24.8million live websites is the world’s most popular CMS accounting for 60.4% of the market share. Second place belongs to Joomla with 5.2% of the market share. With this level of popularity there are bound to be a number of attacks on websites running WordPress.

Nevertheless, Wealthy Affiliate guarantees that it will provide several layers of security that will shield your website from hacking or spam before it happens. In fact, the platform reports that it blocked 27,195,900 hacking attempts in the past year alone!

Daily Backups

Backing up your personal data is one of the best ways to get right back up and running in the event of a system crash or wipe out attack. Unfortunately, not all of us take this precaution to heart and are sometimes caught off guard. Thankfully, Wealthy Affiliate‘s Managed Hosting Platform by default provides daily backup of all hosted websites. Now that’s something to take the load off your shoulders!

What exactly comes with Wealthy Affiliate’s Hosting?

I first encountered Wealthy Affiliate as I was searching for a way to make money online. It was also the first time I ever heard about affiliate marketing. I would soon discover that they had the most straight forward lessons on how to become a successful online entrepreneur. I was then pleasantly surprised to also learn that over time, the founders Kyle and Carson had built probably the best Managed WordPress Hosting platform, which is also available to try for free! However, to enjoy the full benefits, I recommend that you sign up for the $49 per month Premium Membership. This comes with:

  • Instant DNS Setup: All domains you buy on Wealthy Affiliate will instantly be registered to you
  • Decent Website Space: You are entitled to 30GB of storage for your websites
  • Unrivalled Bandwidth for Price: Your bandwidth allocation will enable 500,000 visitors to access your website per month
  • Free SSL Certificates: You won’t have to pay extra to ensure visitors can access your website securely
  • Unlimited Email Accounts: Create as many email addresses as you desire for your website without paying extra
  • BotNet Security: Your site is protected from compromised devices that try send spam, steal data and deny access to visitors
  • Reliable Support: You can log tickets with Server Administrators 24/7 and receive quick feedback

 

And so much more! Additionally, according to an article published by one of the founders Kyle, “Comparable hosting to what you get here within the Premium membership runs you at over $250 per month (or $2,000+ per year).” This is a bold statement which can best be illustrated by the image below.

Wealthy Affiliate's Managed WordPress Hosting

There you have it!

As you can see from the image above, I barely touched on the other perks that come with Wealthy Affiliate’s Managed WordPress Hosting such as SiteHealth, SiteComments, Website Feedback, Community Access, 1on1 Marketing Mentorship and so much more! However, you can take advantage of all these by simply joining Wealthy Affiliate’s Premium Membership.

It is quite understandable that you might have your domain(s) already hosted elsewhere. That shouldn’t be a problem at all. Wealthy Affiliate offers you the opportunity to transfer them to it’s hosting platform using this link. Additionally, at the time of writing this review, Wealthy Affiliate was supporting a limited number of extensions (such as .com, .org, .net, .rocks, .city) and Country Code Top-Level Domains (such as .us, .uk, .za) as well as many other newer ones were unsupported. However, Wealthy Affiliate also offers you the opportunity to point domains already registered elsewhere to it its name servers using this link. The technical teams at your current registry should be able to help you perform this simple exercise.

I hope that you have enjoyed this wonderful review and are now better informed about what Wealthy Affiliate offers. I look forward to hearing your feedback so please kindly leave me a comment in the section below and I will be happy to respond.

  1. The website hosting at Wealthy Affiliate is world class. It is nice to have a one stop shop like Wealthy Affiliate where you can buy a domain, build a website around it, and have it hosted right there on the platform. The great thing is that you can get one free website with the Starter membership which is awesome. The Premium membership is a real value because you get 10 websites that can be hosted at WA. It is a great value either way.

  6. You are so right. I chose WA for my website because There is no one who can offer what WA can do when it comes to webhosting. The most secure website platform in the world all with training, sitebuilder and support and the only one offers full redundancy. Full redundancy is important because you have two twin sites. So if one goes down the other goes up. And they have the best support ready to serve you in minutes.
