Maintaining a website shouldn't mean spending hours optimizing your server and battling security threats. With Managed WordPress, we handle the technical stuff for you - server setup, security, backups, even performance optimization - so you can spend your time designing, managing content and doing what's important to you.
Built for tech-savvy designers and developers, WordPress lets you create gorgeous, content-rich websites with 1000s of free themes and plugins developed by the WordPress community. And as a content management system (CMS), you can assign authors, manage permissions, even make change across your entire site at once instead of a page at a time.
With our Managed WordPress, nearly 9 out of 10 migrations can be done using our simple one-click tool. And if you’re a do-it-yourselfer who needs a little help, we also have detailed instructions you can follow.
