I am not a techie-blogger. I am scared to death to go in to the inner-depths of the blog where all the CSS, HTML, plugins and coding are. I'm literally scared that if I even click to open a certain page, my blog may just blow-up and all will be lost. I hold my breath just updating plugins! At least my blogging "behind the scene" maintenance anxiety doesn't have to be a major hurdle anymore. Obviously, I love WordPress and it is the best blogging platform to have. As for web hosting, when I converted to self-hosting last year, I when with HostGator and I have never looked back. I loved them from day one and have always had the greatest, easiest support from them. So I'm excited to share info about the new HostGator Optimized WordPress hosting platform!
So what is it exactly? With this optimized platform there are some new great features that make blogging stress-free and easy so you won't get the "behind the scene" maintenance anxiety.
+ Automatic updates for plugins, themes, and WordPress
+ Sitelock malware scanning and removal
+ Sitelock Content Delivery Network (CDN)
+ CodeGuard daily backup and restores (down to the file level) <--- Yes, please!
This new premium platform was created to specifically optimize and help easily manage everything in WordPress. Hostgator will be doing all the worry-work for you, so you can sit back and focus on writing content, not updating and worrying about back-ups and security! And now you don't even need to have the extra burden of logging into a separate HostGator cPanel, since HostGator will be doing any management on that part for you! For more in-depth info on the new platform, check out this link!
Of course, you get all the wonderful features of HostGator that drew me to choose and trust them, with my blog baby, in the first place.
+ 24/7 live support via online chat, phone, or email. <--- I remember, one or two days after switching over and having to call for some help at 6am. They were there and got everything straightened out in a snap! I knew I'd made a great decision choosing them!
+ One click WordPress installs - no messy downloading and uploading of files.
+ One click and start, easy-to-use website builder (drag and drop tools that make building a site easy as pie).
+ Design services. You can have a professional do it for you if that's not your thing!
+ Marketing services (including SEO and PPC) by experts in the field, helping you generate the traffic you want.
+ Domains. You can register your domain right through HostGator <--- Which is what I did!
HostGator makes blog maintenance, hosting, and management as stress-free as possible. Anytime someone is switching hosts or beginning blogging, I am always the girl to recommend, loud and proud, to go with HostGator! I seriously have had only great experiences with them and now with this Optimized WordPress platform, even greater experiences are to come!
So tell me:
+ Are you a HostGator lover? Yes and always!
+ Do you get the "behind the scene" blog maintenance anxiety like me?
