Stable and Secure
Giving website owners peace of mind
WordPress is a prime target for hackers, and can cause problems at hosts that aren’t properly setup for it. Lightning Base keeps your server locked down, and uses a variety of measures to keep your site stable under high load or with poorly coded plugins.
- Comprehensive firewalls
- Hacking recovery help
- SSD’s prevent database problems
- Caching, Varnish, and CDN handle huge traffic bursts
Site Set Up and Transfer
The first step in our suite of services is the installation or transfer of your site. When you order a site, we’ll setup a new WordPress install and configure it to work with our CDN and serve static cached pages directly via Nginx.
We can also install our suite of recommended plugins or a selection that you have chosen. If your site already exists elsewhere, we’ll work with you to get it transferred over – whether you want to provide login details to your existing hosting, or send us a backup of your site for installation on our system.
We will also help minimize any downtime associated with the changeover.
Every site needs backups. We provide them on multiple levels. Our server is backed up daily, and these backups are copied off-site for disaster recovery. We also backup your WordPress install itself.
This provides an important layer of protection, allowing us to restore from disaster – whether on our end or an errant click on your part. By default, full backups are taken weekly and database backups taken daily – and all are sent offsite.
These can be made more or less frequent upon request (individual site backups consume your bandwidth), and can also be sent to your own storage account if you want full control over your the safety of your site. You won’t find a more complete backup routine.
WordPress Service and Support
Lightning Base only hosts WordPress websites. This allows us to focus on providing much more comprehensive WordPress support service than most hosting companies.
All Lightning Base employees have extensive experience with WordPress.
You can also get more details on why we’re a great if you’re learning to use WordPress. We also provide fast and friendly help with any (unlikely) technical problems with our services. Finally, although we’ve done everything we can to make things secure, nothing can stop a poorly written plugin or compromised password – we’re happy to restore from a backup or provide some help cleaning out your install if your site does get hacked.
