I love WordPress!

It gives everyone, individuals and businesses alike, a flexible, easy-to-use platform to get their message out.

I've personally started over seven different successful Internet-based businesses using it.

Unlike the early days of the Internet, you don't have to know how to code in HTML or PHP to make a professional, dynamic-functioning website.

You also don't have to spend thousands of dollars to have a developer do it for you!

But what happens when your website "takes off" and you need more resources than you can get with your traditional web hosting package?

WordPress VPS Hosting

When a customer here at NameHero reaches their resource limit consistently we'll recommend they upgrade to a VPS.

Whole some customers may take this as a way to get more money from them, that's actually not the case. It simply means they're using more resources than they can get in a shared hosting environment; it's actually an achievement to grow this large!

VPS simply stands for Virtual Private Server meaning you essentially have your own web server with fully dedicated resources.

All of our VPS hosting packages here at NameHero are deployed on our private cloud, meaning you can instantly scale to more resources on-demand.

This is specifically useful for websites that continue to grow.

Fully Managed WordPress Hosting

All of our web hosting packages at NameHero are "fully managed" meaning you don't have to be a server-guru to use them.

While our VPS hosting may be intimidating to some users, it's actually quite simple.

Especially for those already familiar with our Reseller hosting packages, VPS hosting is basically the same with the exception you have full root access to the server meaning you can tweak settings to be very specific to one website.

Scaling WordPress

There are a lot of companies out there that actually specialize in "scalable" WordPress hosting meaning that users can add more resources as their website grows.

Essentially this is the entire purpose of the NameHero cloud.

Users can easily get started with our Web Hosting packages and then move over to a VPS when it's needed.

Most websites that grow this large are earning extra revenue, so cost becomes somewhat irrelevant.

For example, back in 1998 I grew my first website to 20,000 daily unique visitors. Obviously I was to large for shared hosting, but was able to take a small portion of my profits, and move over to a dedicated server.

From this point forward, I began to start all of my websites on a VPS/dedicated server as I was always in a position for rapid growth.

Free cPanel, SSD, Raid 10, SSL

Just like our Web Hosting and Reseller Hosting packages, all of our VPS packages are deployed with 100% free cPanel (and Web Host Manager) using Solid State Drives (SSD) protected by Raid 10. We also include free and unlimited SSL certificates (a must in 2018)

We don't add any "hidden fees" at the checkout nor do we offer these as upsells. You simply know you're going to get all the features you need right in one central location to power your WordPress website.

One-click WordPress installation (including the ability to Clone and use MultiSite are also available).

How To Migrate Your WordPress Website To A VPS

I filmed a video tutorial where I first review some of the top WordPress VPS hosting providers in the

industry and then show you how to deploy a VPS in the cloud with us as well as migrate over your existing WordPress website.

Even if your current WordPress website is hosted with another provider (such as HostGator or BlueHost) you'll find this tutorial useful.

I also provide some golden nuggets on how to optimize the performance of WordPress :)

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!
