How WordPress hosting makes site maintenance easy

Posted in Blogging, and WordPress Security

Last updated on September 14, 2018

Creating a WordPress website is simple. Due to this most users have their websites up and running in no time. However, in order to protect it from vulnerabilities and threats, it is important to perform site maintenance tasks like updates, backups, optimization, security, etc. on a regular basis. Since these tasks can be time and/or resource intensive and require a certain amount of technical know-how as well, most site owners tend to hire experts for the job which increases the overall cost of running and maintaining the website. The good news is, WordPress hosting takes these tasks off your list by employing experts to perform them for you.

WordPress hosting plans are designed specifically for WordPress sites. Apart from WP-focused features, these plans make site maintenance easy, allowing you more time to focus on your core business. Here are some important maintenance tasks that the best WordPress hosting plans manage on your behalf:

Automatic Updates – WordPress Core, Plugins and Themes

Keeping the WordPress Core updated is important since the developers keep working on security fixes and patches, bug fixes, firewall, and better compatibility with plugins and themes. If your WordPress is not updated, then your site can be exposed to potential attacks and possible performance issues.

While you can update WordPress yourself, in WordPress hosting, the provider ensures that your WordPress, themes and plugins are automatically updated and running on the latest available versions.


Backups are absolutely critical for your website since they help in disaster management and in the worst case scenario, offer a restore point. You can take backups locally, but they tend to be time-consuming and resource/cost intensive. Having a third-party backup is always recommended since it acts as a failsafe if the physical storage of your backup fails too.

WordPress hosting providers offer weekly backups which offer you a failsafe for your backup and reduce the frequency at which you take your own backups.


In WordPress, all website data including pages, forms, posts, form entries, theme and plugin settings, etc. are stored in the WP-Database. Over time, as the data increases, the database can get bloated with a lot of unnecessary data. This invariably leads to a slow-performing website. Hence, it is important to free the database of all unnecessary data to keep it in good shape. This maintenance task requires time and expertise.

WordPress hosting providers, take care of regular maintenance tasks on your WP-Database to keep it optimized and in the best shape.

The security of your WordPress website can never be over-emphasized. While there are hundreds of plugins available to enhance the security of your site, WordPress hosting providers certainly have a better understanding of the platform and can offer better security solutions for your website.

The best WordPress hosting provider offer tools like CodeGuard and SiteLock in their hosting plans which offer a wide array of security and backup features.

WordPress hosting is certainly the best hosting option for your WordPress website since it offers WP-specific features and brings a better understanding of the platform to the table. The maintenance tasks, as listed above, though mundane, are critical for your website. With WordPress hosting, you can be assured that experts will oversee the maintenance of your website, freeing you of the worry and time required to run these tasks. A truly win-win proposition for you.
