To continue producing the best work possible, we work with a handful of partners and preferred vendors.
If you don't already have website hosting, then here are some of our recommendations that we have found has worked really well for our clients. Happy to answer any questions you have, or follow the links below to find out more:
Managed WordPress Hosting
WPEngine is a managed hosting provider focussed solely on WordPress. We've been hosting client sites with them since 2013, and we're big fans of their efficient features, fast speed and haven't looked back! We recommend WPEngine to all of our clients as it benefits them financially and it's just a great service. Best of all, WPEngine provides great tools for us as designers and developers as well, including one-click staging environments so we can develop new functionality without impacting your live site. WPEngine has a wonderful support team who really understand WordPress, all plans feature image caching, CDN, SSL certification, firewall protection, malware scans, one-click backups, and easy to use restore points.

A relatively newer player to the market is Kinsta who use the powerful Google Cloud, combined with a great engineering team and experienced WordPress developers to produce a high-quality WordPress hosting solution. Kinsta offers a pro-active WordPress support team and a platform that's both user-friendly, and powerful.
Their pricing starts at $30 USD a month, sign up now.
Another recommended partner in the WordPress Managed Hosting scene is Flywheel, which have a very similar offering to Kinsta and WPEngine, they have a cheaper tier (Tiny) which is perfect for low traffic sites, and offers free SSL and most of their suite of features. A compatible plan with WPEngine and Kinsta would be their Personal plan, although you will need to add on a CDN on the Personal and Tiny plans. We're looking forward to seeing their new cloud platform based on Google Cloud which is launching soon and should even out the playing field a little more.
Their pricing starts at $13 USD a month, sign up now.
Using Digital Ocean and CloudWays, you can, or with our help, build and optimise your own managed cloud-based server for as low as $10 USD a month. This type of hosting is infinitely scalable and is flexible enough to host many types of applications, including WordPress websites.
I understand there is a lot to take in here, we're happy to work through the options with you.
