Simple Shared Hosting
WizzPress started out as a simple webhosting company 9 years ago in Europe. Since then, their love for WordPress became deeper and they decided to dedicate themselves to the most popular blogging platform in the world. Now they provide a complete WordPress package that includes both the hosting aspect of managing the website as well as the actual WordPress side of it — Plugins, Themes, Updates, as well as support for any issues you have.
Uptime & Reliability
Because their business angle is so limited — WordPress — it allows them to offer extremely personalized and reliable services. They have 24/7 on demand support — if you need help, you’ll get it. That goes along with a 99% uptime guarantee that they offer as well as 7 day money back guarantee for all plans (new domain names can’t be refunded). All servers are stored in a safe, secure, controlled, and locked-down location where virtually nothing will interfere with it.
Basic hosting features to meet everyone’s needs
They have three basic hosting plans that include 1, 5, or up to 25 blogs, depending on how many you plan on running. Because more installations obviously takes more space, RAID-10 storage ranges from 5 to 70GB. All plans include unlimited bandwidth, though they have some limit on how many visits they can recieve monthly (25,000; 10,000; and 400,000).
They also offer support plans where they will manage many of the headaches associated with blogs: site migration, site backups, themes, plugins, updates, as well as custom support to any issues you may have. The plans include either one hour or three hours of support, as well as advanced SEO and eCommerce features for the premium plan. In addition, they offer a one-time support plan where they will help you figure out whatever you need for one low cost, but it won’t be a monthly-type situation. WizzPress also has a WP Dedicated Server — not very customizable but it includes plenty of features any blogger will enjoy. It runs on an Intel Dual Core processor with 4GB of RAM and 2 decicated IP addresses.
Dedicated support options
Unlike a hosting company that may answer your call or e-mail but never really help you with your problem, they actually work to help you with whatever issue. After all, you’re paying for tech support and they don’t disappoint. They may not have a live chat, but most live chat operators never help with anything you can’t figure out yourself. Meanwhile, once you become a member, you’ll have access to their dedicated support line, as well as their ticket system. They have a public FAQ, Blog, and Knowledgebase where they attempt to answer some of the basic questions you may have. They’re even known to help out customers on social media.
A little pricey unless you opt for long term payments
For their support plans, the basic plan which includes one hour of support as well as their managed backups and update features for $39 monthly. For $89, you can get 3 hours instead of one, as well as SEO optimization and eCommerce help, a big plus that can help get your blog noticed. In addition, the one-time fee if you don’t want to purchase a monthly plan is $49, where they can help with whatever you need — whether it’s a plugin or theme, site migration, backup, or other WordPress-related issue. They even have custom plans where you would have to contact them, but if you’re a business and need more than 3 hours of support monthly, I’m sure they can figure out a fair plan.
Meanwhile, WizzPress’ hosting plans begin at $9 per month for and also includes unlimited bandwidth (with 5GB of disk space). If you plan on hosting more than one blog, you’d want the professional or business plans, which run for $29 and $89 per month, respectively. In addition, the dedicated server I mentioned above costs $150 per month. It’s also worth mentioning if you purchase a three, six, nine, or twelve month contract on most of their plans, the monthly price is even lower.
Great hosting for WordPress sites
While they don’t have many features that your standard hosting provider has, they saw the power of WordPress, as well as the demand, and went for it. Only managing WordPress sites means they have dealt with most themes, most plugins, and just about every PHP and WordPress error associated with running a blog. Rather than constantly having to dedicate themselves to 50 different features a company offers, they have experience in mastering WordPress. With plans that include unlimited bandwidth and support plans that have dedicated lines, I must say they are the best choice if you’re a blogger. Even if you have an existing blog, most of their plans include a free migration to their top-of-the-line system.
