What is Managed WordPress?
With The Site Hosting Co., consider our Managed WordPress Hosting solution as your personal concierge, available when you need us, minding the details so you never have to.
Our founder, Fred Sessoms, has been doing WordPress since its beginning in 2003. “I took a long look at what the competition in the Managed WordPress business was offering, knowing we could do better,” Sessoms said. “At all levels – pricing, services included, and expert support, we cannot be beat,” he concluded.
