If your WordPress website is taking a second or two longer to load than you’d like, we’ll share why we’re the best web hosting provider in NZ and how moving to WPhost could make all the difference to your business.

Unfortunately, too many website owners leave it until it’s too late in their search for the best NZ web hosting. Their decision is usually forced after their site crashes on shared web hosting, or perhaps their site is severely compromised with malware and has been hacked for weeks. Poor performance, downtime and security breaches usually result in a loss of revenue, clients or trust in your business – you shouldn’t have to experience any of these issues.

If you want your website to have the fastest WordPress hosting speeds, rock solid WordPress security, and a stress free web hosting experience, we couldn’t possibly be more thrilled to introduce you to what we think is the best web hosting in New Zealand.

Managed WordPress Hosting

With WPhost’s managed WordPress hosting platform, you’ll get top performance out of even the highest traffic websites. Your WordPress website will get its own dedicated resources and you don’t share resources like you do with shared web hosting.

When we refer to WPhost as a managed WordPress hosting provider, we’re calling out the many benefits that makes our web hosting stand out from generic shared hosting providers. And because we treat each WordPress site at WPhost individually, we go to great lengths to ensure that each site is secure, fast and always up-to-date. We take care of updates for you, including all WordPress core updates, PHP updates, and sometimes even plugin updates. This can save you hours of work!

Managed WordPress hosting is ideal for anyone building a business on WordPress. Robust server-side caching comes standard, as does our free built-in global CDN powered by Fastly. Plus, there’s our top-notch local support team and a whole plethora of features to help you launch a blazing fast WordPress site.

Fastest WordPress Hosting

With WPhost, you’ll find a major benefit is that our entire technology stack is tailored to WordPress. Shared hosts cram as many websites as possible onto one server, whereas WPhost treats every website we host like the unique creation that it is. This means no one’s site will interfere with your performance or security and you get the fastest WordPress hosting speeds around the world. We’ve partnered with Google Cloud, allowing us to offer the best web hosting experience for our customers.

Auto-healing technology

In the event of any service failure, each WordPress site on the WPhost platform will automatically heal itself. For example, if there are issues with PHP, your site won’t go down – it will just fix itself! While we’ve always provided great uptime for your WordPress sites, auto-healing technology improves your site’s resiliency even more.

Instant-scaling technology

WPhost’s Platform has been built to be more scalable, more resilient, and even faster. Experiencing a spike in traffic? Now, with WPhost’s new Cloud Platform, scaling your site to millions of visitors happens instantly. Powered by Google Cloud, sites scale and heal as needed. There’s no need for downtime or migration to new hardware!

Updated caching technology

With WPhost’s new Cloud Platform, your sites will perform even better. Our new caching technology takes into account the most popular WordPress themes and plugins to make sure your pages are cached correctly when they should be and aren’t cached when they shouldn’t be – with no work from you!

Free SSL Certificates

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol used for secure and encrypted communication between computers and is best known by the green padlock and the HTTPS that pops up in the URL bar of your browser when a valid SSL certificate is installed.

In addition to increased consumer confidence, having a SSL certificate has many other advantages for website owners. HTTPS is faster and more secure than it’s HTTP counterpart, it’s also been proven to help with SEO rankings, and provides the ability to use HTTP/2 for even greater speed improvements. If your site doesn’t have a valid SSL certificate installed, it could seriously be hurting your traffic and conversions.

At WPhost, free SSL certificates come standard with every WordPress hosting plan. Our super speedy WordPress platform and free SSL certificates work together to give your site a boost in both SEO and security.

Fastly CDN for WordPress

We think a massive value-add making us the best NZ web hosting provider is our free built-in global Content Delivery Network powered by Fastly.

Adding a CDN (Content Delivery Network) is a great way to get your website content across the globe in a snap! A CDN is a collection of servers around the world that hold a copy of your site. When someone goes to your website, the server closest to them will serve the request, meaning the site loads in record time.

All WPhost plans now include our built-in global CDN for free. Full setup by our team of WordPress experts is included.

With WPhost and Fastly, your CDN serves your assets from a bunch of different servers based around the world, including Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. Unlike some other CDN’s that only cache site assets (such as CSS and JavaScript), our CDN offers full-page caching, including the full HTML of your pages. This vastly improves your time to first byte which is great for SEO!

Using a CDN will definitely increase the speed of your site for users throughout the world! But wherever your clients, WPhost is committed to unbeatable page speeds for a global audience.

Rock Solid WordPress Security

At WPhost, we manage your security for you by configuring our servers for WordPress security best practices. This means we are proactively scanning for hacking attempts. We’re also on top of the latest security vulnerabilities and will keep you informed on threats and will proactively block them whenever we can. We do all of this at the server level so you never have to worry about security plugins again! And if something should go awry, as a managed WordPress hosting provider we offer nightly WordPress backups that may easily and quickly be restored.

Perhaps the most valuable security service the best NZ web hosting provider can offer is an infection insurance which includes free malware removal. Unfortunately, there’s always a small chance hackers could find their way around your defence so in the unlikely event that your site is hacked or compromised and your plan includes infection insurance, our team of WordPress experts will quickly and carefully remove the malware and fix it for you – for free!

With WPhost, you have the best NZ web hosting support at your disposal. Our exclusive focus on WordPress means our team of experts always have your back! WPhost clients immediately notice our WordPress support goes a lot deeper than your typical web hosting company.
