Let’s get right into it with a couple of Managed WordPress Hosting best features and ease of use!
Managed WordPress (MWP) comes with quite a few money saving, pre-installed plugins, curated for maximum performance:
Staging Sites: Liquid Web’s Managed WordPress staging site allows you to experiment with themes, plugins, or any variety of other changes you might want to make, all without affecting your live site! It works by creating a temporary clone of your site to test your changes, giving you a chance to get things exactly the way you want them before applying them to your live site. So feel free to test away!
Nightly Backups: Nightly backups of your sites are included in each plan. The backups allow you to roll back to an older version by clicking the restore option, or you can download a copy. No need to install an extra plugin or stress when a development error occurs.
Core Plugin Updates: Core updates help secure your site from hackers and malware by keeping your website up to date. Once available, the core WordPress plugin updates MWP are tested before being implemented on your site. If the plugin or update is compatible with your site, it will auto push the update to the live site. If the new update is not compatible, it will let you know via email allowing you time to inspect at your leisure.
Stencils: The stencil feature is useful for developers who use the same themes and plugins across multiple sites. You can create as many stencils as you like with the click of a button! Click here for information about how you can set up your stencil.
SSH and FTP access: Managed WordPress allows you to access your content via SSH and FTP. Once logged into SSH, Liquid Web’s Manage WordPress comes with WP-CLI pre-installed, so you can make simple commands from the command line to fine-tune users, plugins, and current themes settings.
Free SSL: Let your users know their information is safe! Managed WordPress includes free SSL for all sites on your server to help keep your sites secure. With automatic SSLs you no longer have to purchase certificates for your websites!
Server Maintenance: Our managed WordPress product has a 24/7 operations team that manages routine server maintenance and monitors for DDoS attacks, so you don’t have to, leaving you free to develop your website’s content.
