As a business owner or marketer, you have a lot of responsibilities on your plate, and managing your website is often last on your list. This is an unfortunate reality as once your site is launched, it is critical that it is closely maintained. Like most things, your website needs to be taken care of in order to function well. From theme and plugin updates to backups, scanning for bugs, contact form updates and more, it is important to monitor your website regularly to make sure that your business is performing at its peak.

At seoplus+, we provide website hosting and maintenance for a significant portion of our client base. This ensures our clients’ websites are in good hands, so we can focus on providing world-class SEO and other marketing services. While there are many different host providers, we confidently rely on WP Engine. WP Engine offers premium managed WordPress hosting, and gives both our team and our clients peace of mind.

Here are a few reasons why you may consider migrating your website to WP Engine:

Faster site speed with website caching

Due to WP Engine’s state-of-the-art infrastructure, it is common for page speed to increase post-migration. In fact, WP Engine is the fastest WordPress host, thanks to proprietary EverCache caching technology built with WordPress-specific rules. You will enjoy an increase of up to 40% in site speed on desktop and mobile compared to other hosting platforms.

Access to dev, staging, and production environments

Now more than ever, your website is the face of your business. One way to make sure that your site best represents you is to make sure you perform quality control before going live. When making changes or updates, it is often a good idea to test and preview the site before pushing live. This allows you to test new features, reduces risk and makes sure that plugins remain intact. Think of it as a sandbox. Additionally, WP Engine provides a very seamless push process once you are ready to publish.

Automated plugin updates and backups

WP Engine is a major time saver. It eliminates the need to do manual updates and site backups, keeps your site maintained in real-time, and allows you to make effortless WordPress and PHP updates. With WP Engine, your site will update automatically and maintain plugins on the fly. Working with WP Engine allows us to focus on what really matters instead of spending hours on manual work.

Access to support

With WP Engine, you have the experts at the tip of your fingers. Not only will you have the seoplus+ support portal for all your web needs, WP Engine’s team of WordPress experts are available 24/7 to provide support when you need it most.

Increased security and free SSL

As highlighted in my recent blog “How to Keep a Safe and Secure Website”, it is absolutely crucial that your site has a valid SSL certificate. With WP Engine, you are granted a free SSL certificate that will keep your website protected from threats. Enterprise-grade technology automates threat detection to block 72M attacks daily. Coupled with seoplus+ maintenance to keep all plugins, core, and PHP up-to-date, your website has never been more secure.
