Managed WP Hosting for Businesses

We have added this section here mostly because some of the best Managed WordPress Hosting services have shifted their focus to businesses.

Pantheon

1 Pantheon

Pantheon is another stellar platform for WordPress and Drupal managed hosting. Their price list combined with feature list is enough to make organisations consider using their platform over others. To start with they give free sandbox environment with dev, test and live environments in all their plans.

You pay only when the site is ready to go live. Their Basic plan starts at $50/mo or $41/mo (paid annually). The plan supports 25,000 visits, 125,000 page views, automated and manual backups and 20GB SSD. EdgeCache, free SSL and Global CDN is included in all their plans so your site will be fast from day 1.

Performance plans are tailored for businesses that need guarnteed uptime and high performance websites. These start at $175/mo and go upto $1,000/mo. If you go via an agency partner you can get upto 30% off on all plans via preferred pricing. Performance plans guarantee 99.9% uptime, inlcude Redis (app cache), Solr search and New Relic Pro for application and website performance analyses.

Pagely

2 Pagely

Initially listed above, Pagely has moved down below because they’ve done away with their personal plans and are focused on Business and Enterprise only. They are the original creators of Managed WordPress Hosting and pretty much live and breathe WordPress.

They host with AWS and have developed their own PressArmour to address security concerns with WordPress. There is no site or platform which is 100% secure, however they try to be.

Their base plan, VBurst-1 allows upto 5 websites and includes PressCDN, PressCache, PressDNS and PressArmour. The plan also includes 30GB storage, 20 GB bandwidth and 150 GB CDN. This is decent for a $199/month price point if you are running / managing multiple websites for clients and don’t want to worry about the small stuff. They also have SSH, WP-CLI, GIT/SVN and staging sites.

For a full list of features across all plans, see here.

3 PressLabs

Those with bigger budgets, over 100K page views per month and need to have their sites served from multiple locations via their data centres should definitely check out PressLabs. Their Publisher plan , starts at $299/month. So what is included besides getting your content served from all over the globe? They give a development environment, built-in GIT control, High Availability, CDN and on going monitoring of your site to ensure its up, running smoothly and free from malware. PressLabs also provide logs for your site so you know exactly where the bottle necks are. 

They specialise in hosting WordPress Media / News websites hence they should definitely be considered if you’re starting a global publication.

No it doesnt destroy any or all listing mentioned here. a) Closte.com still has placeholder text all over the website which doesnt look good (and frankly looks bad and unprofessional) b) They have been developing since 2 years and have very recently (read 3 months) dipped their toes in hosting.… Read more »
