1. You Get Superior Support
The number one reason you should choose managed WordPress hosting is superior support. Typically managed WordPress hosting providers only deal with the WordPress platform. This means they don’t mess with Drupal, Magento, or any other type of platform or software. Typically support teams that focus on one area will become experts in that area, even if they aren’t to begin with!
The support team here at Kinsta are all WordPress developers and Linux Engineers, contribute to WordPress Core and other open source projects, and use WordPress on a daily basis. As a result, the expertise of our support department is second to none. Nothing is worse than launching a chat session and feeling like you know more than the person on the other end. This will never happen at Kinsta!
When Kinsta first began, we knew the industry was broken in terms of how WordPress support is handled. This is why our team is structured completely different. We don’t have separate levels or tiers. The support team member that helps you is fully qualified to fix every type of problem, all the way to resolution. There is no bouncing around between different reps, as we think this is a huge waste of time. Everyone gets to chat to the same support team members that back our Fortune 500 and enterprise clients!
2. Optimized for High-Performance
The second reason to choose a managed WordPress hosting provider is that their environments are typically fine-tuned to work with WordPress.
If you go with a shared host or the DIY route they will typically be on more barebone machines and you will need to spend time installing software and optimizing to obtain the same speeds that a managed WordPress host offers out the box. Or in some cases, on a shared host, there won’t be anything you can do to achieve the speeds you need.
We took a poll on Twitter, and with over a hundred votes, 63% of people chose “performance/uptime” as the quality they value most in a managed WordPress host.
