Canadian WordPress Hosting
Our powerful WordPress hosting tools -- available to sites both with and without Platinum management -- help you work faster and smarter with WordPress. Easily backup, import, clone and automate common WordPress functions. Plus, you get to choose on a per-site basis whether you need fully managed hands-on Platinum support. Prefer to have us manage just one or two sites, but not all of them? No problem.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Our Canadian WordPress hosting uses reverse nginx proxy technology for top-notch response times! 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
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.
Steeped in Speed
Our performance advantages are a result of real-world testing and tweaking. Don't believe us? Search our knowledge base for 'discouraged plugins' or 'speed up WordPress' to find our guides and reference articles that help you eke out every last bit of speed from WP.
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...
IP/Port Firewall & Log Monitoring
For shared hosting we use Imunify360 with customized configurations to lock down ports, monitor logs, and block and report on suspicious activity. Our Plesk+Platinum VPS users can select from Imunify360 or Fail2ban + Plesk Firewall, enhanced with our own custom filters and actions to keep WordPress protected from common attacks.
Application Layer Firewall
Our ModSecurity app firewall is powered by Imunify360's evolving ruleset which is updated daily with new WordPress protections.
We then enhance that configuration from our in-house WordPress + BeaverBuilder testing alongside client reports. We build custom rules and 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, WP Optimize, 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
Don't spend a ton on costly WordPress plugins or high end managed hosting solutions when not every site needs it! We provide free firewalls, cloud backup utilities, and website management tools so you can easily perform tasks like installs, clones, backups, malware scans, and more. All without paying for a more costly dedicated WordPress hosting service, additional plugins, or for management.
What Our Clients Say
Just wanted to say that I am happy happy with my hosting and the tech support. [With my old host] it was becoming torturously slow to post to my main WordPress site, and now I click publish and bam - it's there!
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!
Websavers proved to be exactly the solution I was looking for and dealing with them has been a dream. The Websavers team is so great to work with, offer excellent value and support and have made managing my various blogs very easy.
Personal & Business Coach
WOW! What great customer service!!! I didn't expect such fast service ! Very impressive, even my husband who is an IT specalist is impressed!! He said make sure my thank you was impressive!!! Seriously that was fast! Thanks so much.
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.
