WordPress Hosting Options

The only way to truly experience the power of the WordPress platform is a self-hosted solution. Do you really want to learn about web hosting & WordPress when your business is real estate?

Managed WordPress Hosting

With managed WordPress hosting all technical aspects of running WordPress are managed by the host. Management covers security, speed, WordPress updates, daily backups, website uptime, and scalability. The idea being that without the hassles of managing WordPress or web hosting, you can focus on running your business.

Pros

  • Incredible Speed: Managed WordPress hosting servers are configured specially for WordPress.
  • Security: Your site is practically hacker-proof when you go with a managed WordPress hosting provider.
  • Expert Support: The staff is highly knowledgeable in WordPress.
  • Daily Backups: They create daily backups and offer restore points.
  • Automatic Updates: Updates are completed automatically.
  • Staging Area: You never have to risk breaking your live site.
  • No Downtime: Your site will probably never go down no matter the amount of traffic received.

Cons

  • Price: Managed WordPress hosting is significantly more expensive when compared to shared hosting.
  • Limits: Managed WordPress hosting providers block plugins that slows down your site.

Shared Web Hosting

We do not recommend regular shared web hosting for WordPress. At the very least you should use a VPS, though a dedicated server would be best.

WordPress IDX Options

For real estate agents and brokers in the US, IDX is the system that allows REALTORS® to show MLS property listings on their websites. IDX stands for Internet Data Exchange. IDX connects your website with your MLS listings.

The following WordPress IDX plugins are the ones that we regularly use for our realtor websites – we are experts at WordPress IDX integration. Some IDX plugins are better than others, so if you want our opinion on which one you should choose based on your theme, their features, pricing, ease of use, and effectiveness at lead capture, simply contact us.
