You’ve got a business to run. You’ve also got a website to run. And like most business owners and entrepreneurs, your time is most profitably spent managing the details of your business.
But someone has to look after your website, right? That’s where managed website hosting comes in. Specifically, managed WordPress hosting. Simply put, the best managed hosting services will minimize the amount of hands-on IT work that you or someone on your staff needs to do to keep your website running at peak performance.
Managed WordPress hosting by ADMDS is the perfect affordable solution for anyone looking to keep their site fast, functional and secure. Here are the top five reasons why it pays to let us take care of the technical stuff while you run your business.
# 1 – Eliminate the threat of Security Vulnerabilities, Spam, and Website Attacks.
With managed WordPress hosting from ADMDS, your website is protected by our 100% hack-proof guarantee. If anything should happen to your site while part of our Managed WordPress Hosting plan, we will fix the problem free of charge. As with caching rules mentioned below, we’ll implement a personalized suite of security plugins specifically tailored to your individual site. Our security strategy is determined by your existing software plus known conflicts between specific functionality and security plugins. First, we’ll configure the plugins for a maximum security environment to prevent attackers from breaching your site. Then we’ll follow up with monthly software updates for robust defense against both passive vulnerabilities and active attacks. But we don’t stop there. ADMDS employs additional security measures at the server and network levels to further ensure your business — and ours — remains safe from attack. Details of those added safeguards are never disclosed, for the safety and security of all clients.
# 2 – Your Website Will Be Proactively Optimized.
#3 – It’s Cheaper than Recovering From An Attack.
Like any other complex system — a Tesla Model S, a MacBook Pro — the cost of proactively monitoring, maintaining, and managing your website is far less than the cost of having to rebuild, repair or replace a broken or compromised website that went unmanaged or neglected.
Consider, too, the potential cost to your reputation and business. Remember, an out-of-date website is a sign of an out-of-date brand. Why risk losing business and influence to competitors whose sites feature the latest functionalities and are optimized for blazing speed and seamless mobile navigation? There’s no excuse for losing your competitive edge when you can level up to managed website hosting for less than half of what you pay for your morning steamed latte! At such an economical rate, your business literally can’t afford not to step up to managed hosting to ensure best-in-class functionality and long-term stability for your website.
# 4 – A broken site doesn’t paint a good picture.
The purpose of your website is to expose, support, and proliferate your business. You need to constantly enhance your visibility to engage new customers. In the digital age, your website is like the store window of a brick-and-mortar retail business. Not everyone has visited the iconic Macy’s store in Times Square, NYC. But everyone knows the legend and associates a powerfully positive image with the brand. That’s what your website needs to do for your enterprise in the 21st century. An out-of-date website is a sign of an out-of-date brand. Don’t risk it, especially with new plugins and applications being developed at breakneck pace. Our managed hosting service includes a monthly check for updates to the WordPress core, themes, and plugins. We also run a security check and virus scan and we’ll alert you to any issues with licensing or any other functionality warnings that arise during the monthly maintenance update. Rest assured your content stays safe: Monthly updates don’t affect page content, page structure, or overall site design. Maintenance updates merely fine tune or enhance the software that’s already in place to ensure your website always stays up to date, fully functional, and secure.
# 5 – You manage your business, we’ll manage your website.
Nobody does you like you. And nobody does managed website hosting like ADMDS. You’re already pulled in a thousand directions running your business. And between content creation, blogging, site administration, SEO, and social marketing, your web team have their hands full, too. Hosting a website is a specialized endeavor best left to experts.
That’s why business website owners like you hire a hosting service such as ADMDS in the first place. Who better to trust with actively managing your website to provide next-level functionality, speed, and security, including:
- Monthly updates to ensure the WordPress core, plugins, and themes are current and complete,
- State-of-the-art security and site hardening from the moment hosting begins, plus ongoing vulnerability scans and security updates to prevent website breaches and attacks,
- A free staging area where your web dev team can create a copy of your site for development and testing, so you can evaluate new WordPress themes, plugins or other features before going live on your site,
- Nightly site backup with one-click restore, as assurance that if anything ever goes wrong on your site, you can fully restore it to a previous date when everything was working properly,
- Free WordPress site transfers with guaranteed uninterrupted service during the process, sparing you one of the most daunting and complex challenges website owners commonly face, and
- A 100% Hack-Proof Guarantee: ADMDS will proactively monitor, maintain and safeguard your website to keep it out of harm’s way 24/7/365. In the unlikely event that anything should ever go wrong, we will completely restore your website back to its original state and remove the vulnerability free of charge.
You’ve worked long and hard to build your business, build your website, and make both of them the best they can be. With that much on the line, it’s time to level up to managed WordPress hosting. You’ll find it’s well worth it for the peace of mind you’ll get knowing your website is being maintained, optimized and secured 24/7/365 by a professional team of experienced managed WordPress hosting experts.
READY TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP?
We have seen websites of all shapes and sizes, from brilliant to completely dysfunctional. Your site may live solidly in the middle of the bell curve in this regard, however that doesn’t mean your site couldn’t stand to benefit from some amount of modernization. Just like all other technology, the technology of websites is constantly evolving and changing. Often times, elements of a site which were highly effective when a site was built lose their effectiveness over time; and depending on the nature of your business, you may not even realize how significantly even a small issue can affect your business.
While it may be difficult to fully comprehend and validate the decision to move forward and modernize, it is important to keep in mind that time flies as it relates to technology and user expectations fly right along with it. Your website is a 24-hour, 7-day a week representation of your organization online. It needs to properly showcase your brand, your message and your mission. It should drive results, rather than hinder your efforts.
