Managed WordPress Hosting

Have you ever had to deal with the problem of a compromised website? Downtime, defacement, and loss of data can be both embarrassing and a liability to your brand. We are professionals who can help prevent this problem by managing your WordPress updates, web security, and maintenance needs.

Sparkjoy provides a managed WordPress hosting option to our clients, as well as new clients whose websites we have vetted. Partner with us and we can ensure trouble-free reliability for your site, which lets you focus on your content and running your business. If a problem does arise, you can contact us and our support staff will apply our technical knowledge and experience with WordPress in order to solve any problem that might occur. If Sparkjoy has built your website, and is responsible for managed hosting, chances are that any issue that may arise will be identified and remedied before it becomes a problem.

Sparkjoy’s managed hosting services have several unique qualities compared to generic web hosting, such as:

  • Our WordPress hosting infrastructure is located in Canada and all data is kept in Canada.
  • We perform regular maintenance and updates of WordPress core, plugins, and template frameworks.
  • We monitor and ensure server performance and security including blocking malicious traffic.
  • We proactively monitor and fix any problems with the way your website works that may arise as a result of updates.

3 ways we ensure your site stays in perfect health

Complete Security

We only host WordPress based websites which we have built, or have vetted the site with a review, security hardening, and round of basic improvements. By doing this, we can ensure no sites are compromised, or in a state that leaves them open to attack.  This means we can confidently support them over time and ensure our server does not get overwhelmed by attacks. It also means we can carry out minor fixes and upgrades to your website should any need arise during updates. No other hosting provider does this.

Canadian Servers

Our web hosting services are a great fit for companies that need to comply with Canadian privacy laws. All our physical servers are located in Canada and all our client data remains in Canada. Private data is highly regulated in Canada — we have strong laws to protect sensitive and personal information for both individuals as well as businesses — and this protection does not apply if you are hosting in other countries. We also provision email services that are compliant with Canadian privacy laws.

Regular Maintenance

As part of our managed WordPress hosting, we carry out several maintenance actions on a regular basis. We manage WordPress updates and plugin updates regularly. We manage patches to WordPress security and server software daily and conduct nightly scans of website for malicious content. We confirm plugin compatibility and and general website functionality after each update to ensure your website continues to work as you expect. We also conduct daily backups of site data to ensure nothing is lost, even if accidentally deleted.

Fast Content Delivery

Our use of a Content Delivery Network (CDN) makes your website load faster in any part of the world. The CDN accomplishes this by caching your site’s content and distributing it over numerous data centres around the world. When visitors access your website, the CDN delivers the content from the data centre closest to them, ensuring your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance possible.
