Hosting FAQs

Get the answers to why managed WordPress hosting is ideal for your website.

Why should I use WordPress?

Other than being the world’s most popular website creation platform (powering over 30% of the internet’s websites), WordPress offers a wealth of tools, plugins and themes that make it an incredibly versatile platform for creating any type of website imaginable. From blogs, to online stores, to business websites, to websites about cats, WordPress can do just about anything. And because WordPress is not a proprietary software or platform, the way you build your website at one provider will be the same if you move to another, meaning you don’t need to rebuild your website from scratch.

Why should I choose LightSpeed UK for hosting my WordPress website?

As verified experts active in the WordPress community, we’ve provided WordPress hosting since 2009.

Which WordPress hosting plan is right for me?

It can be a challenge finding the right WordPress hosting plan, especially if you are new to the world of WordPress. Luckily we only have two choices:

– Secure Cloud Hosting (Standard)
– Secure Cloud Hosting (Premium)


By identifying and removing or neutralising automated scripts that continue to cause havoc to a compromised website, our team is able to resolve the source issue and help prevent attacks of a similar nature in future.

What is managed WordPress hosting?

You may already be familiar with regular shared hosting or dedicated hosting. Managed WordPress hosting works the same way – it’s a form of web hosting specifically optimised for WordPress websites. We will handle the optimisation and maintenance of your hosting, ensuring that your websites run efficiently and securely.

Do I need a managed WordPress hosting service?

Speed: For websites to provide the best user experience and draw and keep customers, page speed is essential. Two second page loads or less are ideal to reduce undesirable bounce rates and boost SEO.
Security: Giving your website’s security top priority helps to safeguard your customers and brand. Important security features like dedicated hosting environments, firewalls, automatic WordPress core updates, daily backups, and data encryption should be available from your managed WordPress host.
Support: When you use a managed WordPress hosting company, you won’t have to worry about the factors that are most crucial to the success of your website: security, scalability, speed, and support.
