Why is WordPress Hosting Important?
Where you host your website is important for speed, security and performance. The only sites we host on our servers are ones that are on a support plan.
Our support plans include security monitoring and updating the WordPress software and any plugins that may be in use, as well as creating off site backups in case we ever need to go back to a previous version of the site.
It would be unfair to our customers on support plans to host a site that was not monitored for security and therefore putting those other sites at risk because they share a server with a site that is not secure.
Our minimum plan is the “Protect Plan” of €55 +Vat per month. There are other plans that include monthly support hours. You can see all our monthly prices here https://wpconsult.ie/wordpress-website-care-plans-uk-ireland/#europe
The following is included if you are on one of our plans
- Free Hosting
- Free SSL security certificate
- WP Fluent Forms Pro (for better contact forms)
If you wish to host elsewhere I recommend using Siteground hosting https://www.siteground.com/wordpress-hosting.htm and their GrowBig plan. Siteground has a really good offer on at the moment of just €6.45 +Vat per month for the first 12 months and then it goes to the regular price of €17.95 +Vat.
So, really the options we recommend for WordPress Hosting are:
- Host with us when on a plan: Minimum €55 +Vat per month(and have security updates and backups looked after for you)
- Host with Siteground: €17.95 +Vat per month (and look after updates and security yourself)
You can of course go anywhere you wish for hosting but the above is what we recommend. And no matter where you host we can can support you or provide one off tasks/jobs from €49 +Vat per task.
