I’ve been in this crazy blogosphere for going on 7 years now. That’s crazy, when I think about it. When I first started out I didn’t know anything. Where to be hosted, what Search Engine Optimization (SEO) was, and absolutely no clue about making money. Along the way I did a lot of it myself which meant some behind the scenes failures. Then I found my host: HostGator . I’ve been with them for years and whenever I need anything done they are right there eager to chat and fix the problem or even better talk me into fixing it myself so I know what to do next time.
Another thing I like about HostGator is that they are always evolving to meet our needs. For example their new offering: HostGator WordPress Optimization . What does this mean for you as a Blogger?
Benefits/Features of HostGator Optimized WordPress
- Automatic updates of plugins/theme/WordPress
- Sitelock malware scanning and removal
- Sitelock Content Delivery Network (CDN)
- CodeGuard daily backup and restores (down to the file level)
- HostGator WordPress Optimization is a new premium product and just a small extension to existing products provided by HostGator
What is Optimized WordPress?
Optimized WordPress is a new hosting platform that is specifically built for an optimized and managed WordPress environment. Optimized WordPress hosting packages will come pre-loaded with PHP 5.6 by default (the most recent PHP version offered). HostGator will handle all of the core, theme, and plugin updates without the need for any action on your part. In other words, you won’t have to worry about logging into your WP-Admin panel to handle common updates. Additionally, Optimized WordPress does not provide cPanel access, allowing you to install and access your WordPress sites without needing to access or navigate an extra control panel to do the things you want to do.
Why does this Help Bloggers?
It’s just another tool in our blogger toolbox. The malware scanning alone is a plus. I really like that it backups everything I’m doing on a daily basis. Things that I would have to hire out I can now contact my host for. Color me happy!
