INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW

INTRODUCTION

Away with hacking, malware, botnet, spam attacks, etc, on our WordPress websites. We deserve that peace of mind knowing that our hard work is in good hands, with a highly secured WordPress hosting environment. This leads us to the question: Which One Is The Most Secure WordPress Hosting Company Among These 30 Best Hosting Sites WordPress?

You are about to discover in this post, the most secure WordPress hosting company among the best-hosting sites WordPress. The winner was uncovered using a methodological approach, and following 3 weeks of researching and asking questions online. You will also discover in this article, details of the method I used to compare across 32 hosting platforms, 30 of which are WordPress.

 

VIDEO OVERVIEW


 

 

 

 

 

#1. DISCLAIMER

 

PLEASE TAKE NOTE:
  1. Prices of the different services offered by the various WordPress hosting platforms are incredibly flexible. These prices, as at the date of publishing are accurate, but there is no guarantee that they would remain the same by the time you come across this article.  While it is my responsibility to provide the most accurate information to my readers, I wish to draw your attention to the fact that before engaging with any hosting platform, make sure to confirm any prices. I will also endeavor to update my tables with updated figures when they come to my knowledge, and if it is humanly possible.
  2. The methodology used for my analysis is based strictly on my personal experiences online as a digital entrepreneur working from home. Any findings will reflect my subjective and personal point of view, with regards to the services and features that made my online business adventure a truly dynamic and enjoyable one.
  3. The data contributing significantly to my findings and conclusions were obtained mainly by carrying out research online and contacting sales agents of the various WordPress hosting services. I encountered a lot of inconsistencies in the process, and I recall returning on several occasions to the same company, to make sure the most consistent and reliable information was retained for my analysis.  I consistently noted this annoying problem with iPage and Bluehost. There are many others, but these were the most preponderant. This is the main reason why it took me about 3 weeks to prepare this post. That said, I decline any responsibility on faulty/erroneous information provided by the respective sales agents. Online business is all about integrity, and I have no interest in tarnishing the reputation of one platform for the benefit of the other. This would be illogical as I’m an affiliate marketer of 95% of the companies under my review.

#2. METHODOLOGICAL APPROACH USED TO UNCOVER THE MOST SECURE WORDPRESS HOSTING COMPANY

CONDITIONS...

 

2.1CONDITIONS TO BE MET BY A SECURE WORDPRESS HOSTING COMPANY

 

Let me go straight away to uncover the WordPress hosting features, which in my personal opinion, have contributed significantly to making my online business adventure, a truly dynamic one, and worth every penny I’ve put in.

 

A secure WordPress hosting company would have to fulfill 2 conditions:

  • Must contain all 8 Components of the security features that have been identified below;
  • Must include all 8 features FREE OF CHARGE in their WordPress hosting packages. Well, I was a bit lenient with this one. Once only 1 of their WordPress hosting plans qualified for all the features, the company would get the credit.

 

 

2.28 DIFFERENT COMPONENTS OF A SECURE WORDPRESS HOSTING COMPANY

 

So what defines a secure WordPress hosting company? I identified the following 8 different components:

 

  1. FREE SSL Certificates

  2. FREE Domain Privacy

  3. FREE Website Security

  4. FREE Spam Experts

  5. FREE Daily Automatic Backup

  6. FREE Restore

  7. FREE Staging

  8. FREE Data Redundancy

3.5My best choice For You

 

The table above is obvious enough. But if you still want my take, you already know the answer.

 

 

 

 

 

3.6Explanation Of Scoring Table

 

HOW I CAME ABOUT A SCORE OF 10

Have you noticed that I identified 8 different security features, yet I applied a total score of 10? Let me explain what I did. It is very simple.

Every security feature identified above is worth a single point. But I considered one of the features far more important than the 7 other: DATA REDUNDANCY. I believe this feature to be the most important of them all because of the following reasons:

 

  • Data Redundancy is the backbone of Uptime Guarantee. If a company advertises a 99.99 Uptime Guarantee, verify to make sure that hosting company in question has redundant servers, otherwise, there is a very high probability that this company will not be able to keep their word when it comes to uptime guarantee.
  • Data Redundancy is a symbol of High Availablity and mostly included only in Cloud hosting and VPS plans. If you see a WordPress hosting platform, including this technology for their WordPress hosting clients free of charge, then know that they mean business. You must have seen from the table above that only 13 out of 32 platforms offer this feature for WordPress hosting. I can only vouch for the one I use, which is the one I recommend in this post. The others say they have, but I’ve not used their platforms yet to corroborate this. But it’s availability is a very strong signal that you are likely to have your website up and running continuously with them.
  • Even though this post reveals 12 platforms that offer data redundancy, I’m very convinced the number is much less. Some sales agents would provide answers just to boost the reputation of their hosting platform. This could also be as a result of ignorance, but not quite sure. I noted this problem with Bluehost. My first encounter with a sales agent confirmed data redundancy was available, but during the second visit, the new agent requested me to give him more time to check it out which I did. He came back with a reply that DATA REDUNDANCY IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR BLUEHOST’S MANAGED WORDPRESS HOSTING PLANS, and available only for their dedicated servers.  It’s quite expensive to run redundant servers and be sure to confirm before you engage. PLEASE RECONFIRM BEFORE YOU EVER ENGAGE.
  • For the reasons above, Data Redundancy has 3 points, instead of 1 unlike the others. 

 

 

Take a look at the table below to see how I came about a score of 10:

 

SECURE WORDPRESS HOSTING COMPANY
DETAILS OF FEATURES CONSIDERED NO OF POINTS
1 Free SSL 1
2 Free Domain Privacy 1
3 Free Web Application Security Package 1
4 Free Spam Experts 1
5 Free Daily Automatic Backup 1
6 Free Restores 1
7 Free Staging Environment 1
8 Free Full Redundancy 3
TOTAL SCORE 10

#4. TAKEAWAY

2 Things To Retain From This Post:

If there are some facts to take away from this lengthy post, I have identified 2:

  1. You must take total control over your backup process. Irrespective of whether free daily automatic backups are available or not, make sure you look for a reliable plugin or paid solution and carry out a backup of your entire website every single day. This is top priority. My platform offers daily automatic backups free of charge, but I still have a plugin that backs up my entire website. Backing up daily has proven to be very difficult for me, but I do whenever I’ve made significant changes on my website. But daily backups is the goal you should set.
  2. Don’t host with a WordPress hosting company that does not guarantee full data redundancy at the level of their servers. Make sure to always inquire about the availability of this feature, since it’s one of the strongest indicators of the presence of a 99.99% uptime guarantee. It’s a simple test you can perform with any company that promises this score. Just ask their sales agents and hear what they say. If there is no data redundancy, then you know what to do.

#5. CONCLUSION

HOST WITH THE MOST SECURE WORDPRESS HOSTING COMPANY-MY TOP RECOMMENDATION FOR YOU

I count myself fortumate to be hosting with the platform that scored a 10/10 using my evaluation criteria. They are my main motivation for writing this post because my website has not encountered any major security crises/breaches ever since I created my very first website 1 year ago. What a blessing that I’m still working on that same site, using the same host.

 

This is the platform that I definitely recommend for you too.
