The tools you need to scale your services

Streamline your team, add new revenue streams and scale your agency.

Reduce time spent on maintenance

WPhost’s Cloud Platform is tuned for optimal WordPress performance. Plus, we configure server side caching, so your client’s sites will always be super speedy. We offer real-time security threat detection, proactively block threats when we can and work hard to make sure your sites are safe and secure.

Free Multi-Domain SSL Certificates come standard for partners thus providing agencies with an additional value-add for potential resale. All WPhost Agency Starter plans include our built-in global CDN (powered by Fastly).

We also manage your client’s WordPress patches, updates and backups so you gain peace of mind and you’re always a step ahead.

Google Cloud Platform

Enhance your WordPress experience

We’ve partnered with Google Cloud to create a platform that’s more scalable, resilient, and faster than ever. Leveraging containerised technology and the latest technologies, agencies are provided with enterprise-grade infrastructure to offer clients.

GCP enables New Zealand, Australia and surrounding area users to use our Cloud Platform close to home. But wherever your clients, WPhost is committed to unbeatable page speeds for a global audience. Our Agency Starter Plan features auto-healing and instant-scaling technology allowing us to offer the best WordPress hosting experience for agencies, developers and designers.

With WPhost optimising GCP for WordPress, you don’t have to. Instead, you can spend your time creating beautiful experiences instead of the systems to power them.

Leverage the WordPress experts

Building with WPhost frees you up to focus your time and technical resources on creating your end user experience instead of the systems to host and manage it.

With WPhost, you have the best WordPress support at your disposal. WPhost clients immediately notice our expertise goes a lot deeper than other WordPress hosts. A huge benefit for agencies is our 24/7 emergency site down support. We don’t believe there’s any other dedicated WordPress hosting provider in NZ offering this level of support.

WPhost Agency Partners access a secure Client Area where agencies can create & migrate new sites, manage agency plans & billing, register & transfer domains and view referral statistics in real time.

Frequently Asked Questions

We'd love to hear from you if you have a question that isn't answered.

What solutions does your Partner Program offer agencies?

Agencies can refer us clients and earn up to $200 for every site moved to WPhost, or resell our Agency packs and add new revenue streams.

Refer us clients
Clients look to agencies for recommendations on the best hosting option for their site. With WPhost’s referral program, we’re here to help you succeed and make up to $200 per site while doing it! WPhost pays 200% of the monthly payment amount for all referred sites.

Resell our Agency packs
For established agencies and freelancers looking to increase recurring revenue from their existing clients, reseller hosting is the way to go. Creating maintenance plans, where there are tiers of services and hosting options to choose from, is a common way to resell hosting. With WPhost, you can include our features in your plans and upsell our add-ons.

Can I be both a reseller of your hosting and refer you clients?

Yes! Many of our Agency Partners mix and match by reselling our Agency packs and referring us clients. After acceptance into our Partner Program, you have access to both programs.

What's the best way to earn recurring revenue?

Our most successful Agency Partners earn recurring revenue by bundling up the cost of managed WordPress hosting with the other web design and development services they offer, and bill it as a monthly plan. WPhost becomes your partner behind the scenes, and you offer our services under your own agency and brand. From your client’s perspective, you are their point of contact and are taking care of their site completely, allowing you to deliver an incredible, ongoing customer experience without a bunch of additional work.
