Free website migration for Managed Hosting Packages worth £98

Price comparison to our competitors

I’m a big fan of being transparent and open with our clients regarding our service.

Once thing I feel is particularly important is explaining how much value we bring at such a small cost.

Although there are many companies that provide managed WordPress Hosting, we are different.

We do it better, we do more for you, we do it with more care and being a small company we can do things for significantly less than our competitors.

This ensures our clients get the best possible price for a feature rich service that will be hard to match anywhere else.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at the 3 main competitors.

We’ll look at WP Engine, and Go Daddy.

Key differences (What will cost extra)

Below are the key differences between our services and others and what you’ll pay extra for beyond the base service.

 Other providers

There are lots of other providers and in general if you’re paying under £15 pm then you’ll be getting hosting only and no managed services. The hosting is also generally deemed to be lower quality and can affect the performance of your site along with extended periods of downtime.
