Media Temple WordPress Managed Hosting Reviewed

In case you’ve missed it, Media Temple have recently launched their Premium WordPress Hosting service, which puts them in direct competition with other providers (such as WP Engine and Page.ly) operating in the managed WordPress hosting niche.

Now Media Temple were the cool hosts that everyone wanted to be on just a few years ago, however there was a big shift when managed WordPress hosting providers entered the market, and they kind of lost their foothold in the WordPress market. With this new offering, they are back in the game and eagerly wanting to reclaim their slice of the pie. With their experience and technology they should be well positioned to become one of the leaders in the managed WordPress hosting niche. I’ve put them to the test and here’s what I found.

The good news is that there are some excellent registrars which do provide FREE whois privacy, and we’re listing them for your convenience here.

On Plugin and Theme Support Systems

Last week I switched to Help Scout for handling support of my premium plugins. I’m totally in love with their service, I did quite a bit of research before choosing them, and they were the only ones to tick all my boxes.

I’d love some feedback from other plugin and theme developers though, what support system are you using?

SiteGround Managed WordPress Hosting Reviewed

I recently moved over one of my most important sites to SiteGround from its previous location at a shared host. SiteGround are a hosting company that’s been established for more than 9 years now, they are based in Bulgaria and offer shared hosting, cloud hosting and dedicated servers.

One of the reasons I moved to SiteGround was that I met their team at WordCamp Europe in Leiden earlier this year. They left a lasting impression of me and immediately came across as a fun, knowledgeable and passionate bunch, focused on supplying a great service and keeping their customers satisfied.

Doteasy SSD Hosting for WordPress Reviewed

A few years ago, when I was in the market for buying new hosting, I remember having the choice between shared hosting and dedicated hosting. That was a clear choice really, if you needed the powerful infrastructure and you were willing to spend money on hiring somebody to manage your server, you’d go for dedicated hosting, while for pretty much anything else you would start with shared hosting.

Nowadays hosts have fine tuned their offerings much more. We’ve seen the introduction of VPS and Cloud services, while other hosts have introduced an extra level of management to take the dirty work away from their clients, obviously at an extra cost. Hosts also started to target particular platforms like WordPress, since they have a huge market share.

Incentivibe Review

Incentivibe Contest Service Review

If you’ve ever wanted to run a contest on your site, but lack the funds to offer a decent prize, then Incentivibe will be of great interest to you. Incentivibe allows business and website owners to group together in order to offer big contest prizes, while only paying a fraction of the cost.

Whereas traditionally a single site’s budget might not stretch to a $500 giveaway for a contest, by using Incentivibe, it is now possible to split the cost of funding the prize with other site owners, with each contributor being able to promote the contest on their own site.

Cloudways – Managed WordPress Services

Today we’ll be having a look at a hosting service provided by Cloudways. This company does server management for its clients and partners with Cloud providers like AWS, Elastichosts, Linode etc. A client can thus choose their own hosting platform, but leave all the technicalities in the hands of the Cloudways team.

Cloudways offer two main hosting services, Click&Go as well as PowerCloud. We will be focusing on PowerCloud today.

Introducing WP Elevation

With WordPress powering 20% of the web, there is a huge level of demand for WordPress consultants. However, most of these consultants are not doing business as efficiently as they could, leading to lower profits for themselves, as well as a low quality workflow and unsatisfied clients.

Ask yourself the honest question: “Might your WordPress consultancy business be underperforming?”. For many of us, the truth is “yes”. Up till now, there wasn’t a place where you could specifically learn about the business side of WordPress, but now there is such a place in the form of WP Elevation, a membership site started by none other than Troy Dean, a super successful WordPress businessman who is behind the popular site Videousermanuals.com.
