Key Considerations: WordPress Hosting for Digital Agencies
  • 5 min read

Easy. Fast. Secure. That’s what your WordPress hosting needs to be. Many other things need to be easy, fast, and secure, too. Purchasing stuff on your online store, page load speed, and payment and personal data processes to name just three. But let’s start with your website hosting.

Your websites and those of your clients are critical to your business. No website = no money. Hosting isn’t the place to merely satisfy. WordPress Hosting for your agency is where you want to be excited, happy, and confident. Surprises are great for birthday parties, but not so great for website hosting that your business relies on.

Easy. Fast. Secure. What does that mean exactly?

For us, and probably for you as well, it’s more than just three words. It means your hosting interface is simple and easy to use. It means your website – front end and back end — is performant with lightning-fast speed. It also means that the security of your website processes – for you and your clients – is always on. 

What is this worth to you? What would you lose if your website, or those of your clients were slow, complicated to use, or possibly hackable? Think about that. Probably more than $30 a month, right?

“Relatively small businesses’ cost of downtime falls into a range of $137 to $427 per minute, whereas for larger businesses, the downtime can cost over $16,000 per minute or just a short outage.”

What Do You Want From Your WordPress Hosting Company?

Of the following five website hosting considerations, what is the most important to you? Which of the five would you sacrifice if you had to? Which service would never be too expensive?

  • Flexibility. 
  • Core Performance
  • Security
  • Support and Client Management
  • Price.

Not an easy question, but sometimes you have to sacrifice one thing for another. Some hosting providers offer a great price, but the support isn’t the best. Others have great support, but the scalability leaves something to be desired. Most importantly, does your hosting provider, as a core competence, really support WordPress?
