WordPress Hosting is coming to WHC!
Summer heat waves may be upon us, but the Web Hosting Canada team isn’t slowing down! We’re working hard on our next awesome project, and it’s nearly here: WordPress Hosting.
While Web Hosting Canada clients have been enjoying the WordPress platform and our 1-click installation process through our web hosting, Cloud servers, and Dedicated Servers for years now, our new WordPress solution will make your experience smoother, faster and more secure. We’re planning on officially launching it at WordCamp Montreal on August 11-12!
What is WordPress?
In case you’re new to the web (or have been living under a rock), WordPress is the most popular content management system on the planet. From its humble beginnings as a blogging platform, Wordpress today powers over 25% of websites online. It’s the preferred choice of techies and amateurs alike due to its open-source design and near limitless plugins which lets you take your website as far as your imagination allows.
What can I expect from WordPress Hosting?
The list of features and perks are growing with every passing day, but here’s a sneak peak at what’s coming:
No more working through an installer or making difficult security and design decisions to get your first WordPress website up and running. With WordPress Hosting, your WordPress website will be ready to go within minutes and includes sample content to help you get started.
If there’s one thing we hate, it’s slow websites. That’s why we’ve designed our WordPress Hosting platform to be as fast as possible. Including multiple levels of caching straight out of the box, super fast pure-SSD storage, multiple gigabit network connections, optimized PHP 7.2 and built in compression.
Designed in Canada, hosted on Canadian servers, and pre-configured for bilingual (French/English) websites right out of the box. What’s more Canadian than that?
Hosted WordPress comes hardened with advanced security configurations and includes SSL, daily backups, automatic updates, automatic threat detection & mitigation, 2-factor authentication and DDOS protection.
WordPress is even better when it comes enhanced with free goodies, including free email for all your staff, staging environments to test your changes before making them live as well as wp-cli and GIT for power users.
