wordpress vs standard hosting

The world of website hosting can be large and complex. We understand this better than anyone, which is why we decided to offer a range of WordPress Hosting services to suit almost anyone! 

Our Smarter WordPress hosting is designed to make it much easier for you to manage your WordPress websites.

There are a number of reasons we recommend the WordPress hosting plans, compared to others on the market, including: 

  • Staging environment (one click staging and cloning)
  • Smart updates tool 
  • SEO toolkit 
  • Malware scanning 

These tools are included in your hosting service at no extra cost, compared to other plans that require you to add them separately at an additional cost. 

Even better, these tools are best practice/industry leading, so there’s comfort in knowing that they work, and come highly recommended.

Not quite sold? Let’s talk a little more about each of the tools, and why they’re so useful …

Staging Environment

We’re not all experienced WordPress developers, and sometimes it takes a bit of trying and testing to get our website looking how we want it. The staging environment is activated with the click of a button and allows you to easily view the changes and updates you’re making, without pushing the entire website live. 

Smart Auto Updates

The Smart Auto Updates Tool makes updating your WordPress website, plugins, and core as easy as clicking a button! When enabled, our tool will perform auto updates – but only after it’s reviewed the updates and confirmed they will not cause issues in your website. If it identifies an issue, it simply won’t proceed with the update. Neat! 

SEO Toolkit

If you’ve ever looked at outsourcing your website SEO, you’ll know that agencies charge $100+ month on top of the normal maintenance and website build fees. Our SEO tool is free as part of your hosting plan, meaning you can manage your SEO to ensure your website is performing well in search. 

And another thing …

Here’s a fun fact! The hardware that we host your WordPress website on is the same hardware that we use for our own website! Not only are our plans backed by Australia’s most powerful infrastructure but we’re so confident in the hardware that we use it ourselves!

Of course, even with the best hardware in the world, it’s always a good idea to have a contingency plan, which is where our Acronis automated backups come handy. We take backups on completely redundant servers every 3 hours and it comes included in your plan at no extra cost. Fun fact: we keep your backups for 30 days so even if you don’t notice something is wrong for a few weeks, we’ve got your back.

You can rest easy knowing your website is hosted securely, safely and reliably with Zuver.
