Canadian WordPress Hosting

Our powerful WordPress hosting tools ensure that everyone, with or without a management subscription, can access our built-in 1-click utilities to help you work faster and smarter with WordPress. Gain the freedom to choose on a per-site basis whether you need fully managed hands-on support. Prefer to have us manage just one or two sites, but not all of them? We can do that!

WordPress Hosting Done Right.

Sick of your WordPress hosting running slow? Tired of manually backing up and updating your site’s plugins and themes? Had enough of your host telling you that WordPress support isn’t what they do? Ready to get the tools of a costly managed hosting provider at standard shared hosting rates? 

Welcome to Websavers. You’re going to love it here!

One-Click Installer

Tired of manually setting up databases and constantly downloading and uploading files with FTP? So were we, so we did something about it. Click “Install WordPress” and our 1-click web apps utility takes care of it all for you.

Automatic Updates

Stay secure: never fall behind on updates again. Configure WordPress to auto-update core, plugins and themes! The best way to patch security flaws is to trust that our systems will auto-update your WordPress website safely.

Cloud Backups

Configure your WordPress installs to automatically backup to the cloud provider of your choice on the schedule of your choice. All without the need to pay for a premium plugin! Restore with one click in-place or to a subdomain.

High Performance

Our Canadian WordPress hosting uses reverse nginx proxy technology for top-notch response times right off the bat! Managed WordPress hosting companies (FlyWheel, WP Engine, Pagely) charge $30+ / month and provide the same service. Want it even faster? As part of our Platinum management we'll manually  adjust your site to eke out every last drop of performance. 

Support Like Never Before

We’re not just a Canadian WordPress hosting company. We’re a bunch of geeks that love to mess around with everything web. We build and fix a lot of WordPress sites, use hundreds of themes and plugins, and code in PHP/JavaScript/MySQL on a daily basis. It's that experience that ensures you get the right answers when you ask a question.

Managed Means Something

Order our Platinum managed hosting add-on and we'll not only keep a close eye on your WordPress website to keep it running fast and secure, but we’ll also be standing by to help with anything web-related that you might need, from updating some content to tweaking the code, to integrating a new plugin to look perfect on your site.

Don't pay more for WordPress tools

Our powerful tools allow you to install, clone, backup to cloud, restore, create site templates and more, all without paying for a more costly dedicated WordPress hosting service, additional plugins, or for management.

The Tech Goodies

Here's the nitty gritty that makes our Canadian WordPress hosting better than the rest. Not so techy? You might wanna skip over this part...

  • Custom LFD/Fail2ban Rules

    On our shared servers we implement CSF/LFD to lock down ports and monitor logs and block detected suspicious activity. For our platinum VPS clients using Plesk, there's Fail2ban + Plesk Firewall, enhanced with our own custom filters and actions to keep WordPress safe.

    Whether you choose shared hosting or a managed VPS, our custom firewall configurations ensure your WordPress site is protected from bruteforce attacks (on both wp-login and xml-rpc).

  • ModSecurity Enhancements

    Our application layer firewall is powered by ModSecurity with Comodo's web application security ruleset.

    We then factor in all of our own WordPress + BeaverBuilder testing plus our client's reports into account and create custom exclusions to ensure the WordPress software you love will work great with our hosting while remaining secure.

    This means that common vulnerability hacks and entire botnets are blocked well before they can do any real damage.

  • Performant Nginx Configuration

    Plesk uses nginx as a reverse proxy by default, which on its own is a great speed improvement over the apache web server on its own. We've taken this to a whole new level by building custom rule-sets to automatically detect common WordPress caching plugins and serve the static cache directly from nginx. We currently support WP Super Cache, WP Rocket, WP Fastest Cache, and W3 Total Cache. This bypasses the need to launch an apache process to handle requests via .htaccess. Neat huh?

    Because of this and our super-powerful hardware (more on that below), our shared hosting can often handle sites with hundreds of thousands of daily visitors before even needing to think about a VPS upgrade.

  • All-SSD Servers Always Underloaded

    We use Solid State Disks (SSDs) in all of our servers. The big advantage SSDs provide specifically for hosting isn't so much about their improved transfer speeds (4-10x), but rather the dramatic improvement in IOPS (20-50x) to ensure your site is always fast. Even better, when also using plugins and themes that are optimized for speed, you can easily attain <100ms TTFB performance results.

    We also purposefully under-load each server to ensure there's resources available in the event any given site receives a traffic spike.

  • Triple Layer Bot Protection

    Our bot protection system works in three layers to ensure your site is always working at its best performance while remaining secure. 1) Our network firewall maintains an evolving list of common badbot IP addresses, 2) Our custom ModSecurity rules are frequently updated to block common WordPress bruteforce bot signatures (e.g.: old user agents), and 3) We use our very own optimized robots.txt to ensure good bots don't get caught in dynamic content loops that eat up resources unnecessarily.

    All together these three bot protections help to ensure your site runs as securely and as fast as possible.

  • Our Support Reps are Techs & Devs Too!

    Our customer support reps actually are technicians and/or developers. This means we can help resolve your problems faster than the majority of the 'big guys' in the hosting space. Simply submit a ticket and see for yourself!

    Our Platinum management subscriptions include blocks of hands-on time. Because we use experienced technicians, we can typically do 3-5x the amount of work as your typical first-responder at other hosting companies in the same amount of time.

Work smart with less plugins

Why spend more on costly WordPress plugins to handle website admin tasks like backups and website security? We provide free firewalls and cloud backup utilities for all that host with us!

What Our Clients Say

I think my FAVORITE thing is that you all don't treat us like we're stupid just because we're women or don't know how something works. We ask because we want to learn. And most hosting companies don't take the time to tell us WHY something is a good idea. I really, truly appreciate you all!

Absolutely fantastic! Should have done this years ago. Your technical support is second to none. The one-click application setup is tremendous. WordPress installation has never been easier. The ability to manage my own email accounts, domains etc. is a real time saver and the ability to create subdomains at will allows me to very easily create demo sites for clients.
