If we go deep inside technicalities, WordPress cache plugins like W3 Total Cache and WP Super Cache guarantees lighter server load. While its search engine mechanisms (like Ping-o-Matic) make sure 80-90% of your SEO is already done for you.

Cloud and WordPress: The Perfect Partnership

With cloud computing, WordPress has become worriless even in terms of hosting. Shared hosting was cheaper but gave limited space and buying dedicated server means investing a huge amount of budget. Though cloud computing is comparatively more expensive, it allows scalability–you can easily increase or decrease your resources instantly without facing downtime. So if your company is about to initiate a big sales activity, you can increase your servers and pay only for the time you use them.

Apart from this, cloud is easy to deploy and reliable. Worrying about server crashes has become a thing of the past. With cloud, there is no single machine at your disposal, and you can easily move data on another server. This way your blog can always stay live with fewer risks compared to traditional hosting.

Managed Cloud Hosting to Strengthen Your WordPress

The reliability of WordPress cloud hosting is maximized when coupled with fully managed services. Complexity increases as your WordPress website grows and not giving adequate attention towards them means you can risk your reputation; something which is not easy to recover. A managed service provider makes sure that you can give complete focus on the content side while they tackle the technical end of things. Some of the benefits of having managed WordPress hosting are:

  • Managed Backups and Data Recovery: WordPress provides manual data backup plugin (BackWPup), but backup needs of enterprises are different. Managed cloud hosting allows you to automate your backups. You can also choose to keep off-site backups as an additional safety measure.
  • Security: Security has been a high concern in WordPress. As the number of websites are increasing, the amount of hacking attempts and malware attacks are also on rise. Though you can fix the major security issues, managed cloud hosting looks on every aspect on protecting your WordPress. Server firewall, access controls and security patches all are handled by your Managed Service Provider (MSP).
  • WordPress Update: With every new release, WordPress brings out advancement to its existing system. However, web owners are reluctant to update due to compatibility issues with the plugins. Managed cloud hosting makes sure your WordPress core and plugins are fully managed and updated, so you can have a robust WordPress website.
  • Support from Cloud Experts: The major benefit is that you get 24/7 support from cloud engineers. Right from infrastructure and security planning, they help you to take the right decision for your website.
