If you’re a blogger or a website owner with little or no technical background, it can be such a pain to maintain a WordPress site. While it’s true that the software is very quick and easy to set up, given that most web hosts support it and offer one-click installs, things can get complicated later on.
You’ll need to keep the core software and plugins up-to-date and secure from malicious attacks, ensure that your site is up all the time, optimize it for fast loading and SEO, troubleshoot if something breaks, etcetera. Your list of maintenance chores is quite long. If you’re an average site owner, you may not have the time, know-how, money or even interest to deal with these issues.
This is where managed WordPress hosting comes in handy. Leave the technical nitty-gritty to the experts so you can focus on your main tasks, like creating content, selling your goods, or marketing your site. It’s like hiring your own technical experts, except that your hosting provider takes care of this, too.
