If you’ve been searching for a simple, yet powerful solution for your WordPress needs, then you’ve come to the right place! In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about hosting your blog in New Zealand on our managed WordPress plans.

Why Choose Managed WP Hosting In New Zealand?

Let’s be honest — running a blog isn’t easy. Between taking care of content, growing your audience, and promoting your site, it can be a lot to handle. But our managed WordPress hosting plans take all the worry out of running a blog. For only $2.95/mo, you can have a professionally managed WordPress site that will be updated and maintained by our team of experts. Your blog will be live within minutes of signing up, and you can begin customizing your site with your very own unique look and feel.

On our side, we will ensure that your blog stays updated and runs smoothly by providing ongoing updates and maintenance. This means that even if you’re not a techie, you won’t have to worry about keeping your site up to date and running smoothly.

Plus, with the added security of our managed WordPress hosting plans, you can rest assured that your blog’s security is being taken care of. In the event that your site is hacked or compromised, we will patch it up for you and then re-install it for you on a new hosting plan. This is important because it means that even if you’re not tech-savvy, you can still maintain control over the security of your blog.

Features Of Our Managed WordPress Hosting Plans In New Zealand

One of the things that makes us different from other web hosting companies is that we don’t stop there. We also provide features that make managing your blog easy and hassle-free. For example, with our Managed WordPress hosting plans in New Zealand, you get access to professional-grade tools that can improve the overall experience of running your blog. Here are some of the features you’ll find on our plans:

Free SSL Certificate

When you host your site on our platform, all requests made to your site, whether by people clicking on links or visiting your site directly, will be encrypted. This means that the information they provide (ie: credit card numbers) will be protected and safe

Ensure that your blog is always protected by an SSL certificate, and use our free [insert-name] certificate. This will ensure that your blog visitors are always safe and that their personal information is kept private.

Free Backup And Restore

We all know that things can go wrong. Blogging is not an exact science, and mistakes can happen. For this reason, we provide a free backup and restore as part of your hosting plan. This way, if you ever do make a mistake and delete some content by accident, you can quickly restore it. The backup and restore functionality is available through the [insert-name] dashboard, and can be accessed from any device.

Deleting content on your blog can be a major pain point. Not only does it mean losing the content you’ve created, but it also wipes out any followers or traffic that was tied to the said content. With our free backup and restore, you don’t have to worry about losing any content — because it’s all saved automatically. Your team of experts will constantly be keeping a close eye on things and making sure your content is always safe and backed up properly.

Free Domain Privacy

A few years back, if you wanted to keep your personal information private, you had to pay for privacy shields. These were little add-ons you had to download and install on your site to ensure that anyone visiting your site couldn’t track your activity. It wasn’t exactly ideal, and even now, not all privacy shields are created equal. Sometimes they didn’t work at all, and other times they were just a bandaid solution.

Thankfully, times have changed, and now you can get privacy for your domain for free as part of your hosting plan. This means that you don’t have to worry about installing third-party apps and services on your site in order to keep your activity private. With our free domain privacy, all requests made to your site will be encrypted, ensuring that your personal information is always safe.

Free Email Accounts

One of the biggest pains points for any blogger is getting bulk emailing caught by the FTC. Now, I’m not saying that you’ve necessarily done anything wrong or that you even know you’re at risk of getting caught — but just in case, our free email accounts will come in handy. You get a free @wordpress.com email address, which you can then use to create as many email accounts as you need. Each account gets its own unique domain name, so in the event that your @wordpress.com email gets flagged by the FTC, you can move over to one of our free email accounts without worrying about losing your existing followers or getting bad press.

Along with WordPress, we also provide you with the tools to build a professional-looking blog. This means that even if you’re not a techie, you can still have a functioning blog in no time with our help. Don’t worry, we won’t bombard you with emails — you can always remove our emails from your address book if you feel like it’s getting a little much. Just remember to deactivate our account when you’re done using it.
