WordPress Works Best with a Hosting Company
About a third of the world’s websites run on WordPress, but not all of them are directly linked to WordPress servers. There are many reasons for this. WordPress is a global entity, so while they have a top-notch platform that’s universally compatible, they can’t always be customised for regional solutions. Here in South Africa, for example, you may prefer a local WordPress server host that provides tailored support. In this digital age, the world demands quick, easy, safe, reliable, all-in-one solutions. You should expect nothing less. What’s more, is that you don’t need to know it all to do it all. A good hosting company will take care of all the intimidating technical aspects and you should just be able to get exactly what you need, when you need it.
This is what we’ve achieved at HOSTAFRICA with our cPanel WordPress ToolKit. This blog hopes to inform you of why you shouldn’t settle for anything less. Read on for the benefits of our local servers designed specifically for all-in-one WordPress Hosting.
Ease of use
Let’s face it, most people don’t know how to run and manage their own web servers. However, they want to be the boss of their own sites. Hosting provides you the opportunity to get what you need instantly without having to worry about how you get it. HOSTAFRICA’s WordPress hosting is specifically designed to run on servers dedicated to and optimised for WordPress. Our unique setup installs and configures the WordPress application for you, which means you’re merely required to buy the hosting package, choose a domain name, pay and start building your new website.
You need a host that can keep up. The benefit of a local host means servers are hosted in certified Data Centres in South Africa, ensuring you get the lowest possible latency. You can’t afford to have a slow site and lose potentially customers. This brings us to another absolute must-have:
The new LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress (LSCWP), an all-in-one site acceleration plugin, featuring an exclusive server-level cache and a collection of optimization features. LSCWP supports WordPress Multisite and is compatible with most popular plugins, including WooCommerce, bbPress, and Yoast SEO. All HOSTAFRICA’s WordPress servers run LiteSpeed. This powerful plugin communicates with your Turbo server and LSCache to statically cache your dynamic WordPress pages and greatly reduce your site’s page load time.
Protection for yourself and your customers
Your website is the product of all the precious time and effort you poured into it. The last thing you want is malicious malware or hacking compromising all your hard work or your business from running as it should. This why we’ve made sure our servers run Patchman to keep you protected. Patchman detects vulnerabilities and malware and can safely patch them automatically. We want you to rest assured that your website(s) will continue to function properly. We also give you free SSL Certificate to protect your customers’ data when visiting your site. Assure your customers that your site is secure and trustworthy.
24/7 Service and Support
We all know that when trying to get a business off the ground, after-hours work is your bread and butter. We also know that problems don’t politely wait for 9 to 5 business hours. When things go array you need a physical person on the other end of your email, message or call. You don’t just need any person, you need an expert who can listen, efficiently diagnose and effect a solution in a timely manner. You want the kind of web partner who makes you their highest priority, who can work with you directly, and understands your web needs from a cultural, social, and economic perspective.
Smaller, local hosting companies like HOSTAFRICA value each and every customer and are therefore dedicated to offering outstanding service. We guarantee 99.9% uptime, 24/7 monitoring and, if necessary, after-hours support for all our customers. We’re here for you, every step of the way.
Our WordPress packages run on cPanel, a full-featured control panel that allows you to easily manage your domain(s) through a web interface.
cPanel web packages include design, hosting, and testing. We have a clone feature where you can evaluate new web features before putting them live on your website. We also have a one-touch web hardener to protect your website from viruses and other threats. None of this is available on traditional WordPress sites … these accessories are just for us.
Be the boss and sell your own
cPanel isn’t just for individual website owners. We have packages for resellers and web designers. These ‘web programmer’ platforms allow you to host and/or build websites for your own client base. Your cPanel dashboard helps you do all you need for them. You could even start your own WordPress Agency and run it on your phone. As a webmaster, for instance, you could check all your websites and harden them simultaneously using a single click. And all our sites have search engine indexing, which helps your websites respond to web crawler algorithms and therefore perform better in rankings.
