Managed Hosting for the Genesis Framework

I received an email today from Brian Gardner, Chief Product Officer of Copyblogger Media, about a new offering. WordPress hosting dedicated just to Genesis users. This definitely puts a new spin on web hosting, as I’ve never seen any framework-specific web hosting ever offered.

The new web hosting is called Synthesis. Pricing starts at $47 per month and scales all the way up to $249 per month (which includes 300,000 unique visitors per day.)

What are some things that Synthesis offers, that you may not get by hosting it yourself?

Genesis Hosted Performance

Synthesis outperforms generic web hosting by optimizing your site in two critical ways:

  1. Our servers are specifically configured for WordPress in ways that were once only available to those with either mad technical skills or big budgets. The result is the ability to handle the high volume traffic spikes that you’re experiencing (or hoping for).
  2. We eliminate the nefarious “hidden” drag on WordPress performance, which is shoddy code in theme design. We uniform the experience by only accepting sites that use the Genesis Framework for WordPress, which allows us to tweak further for optimal results, instead of guessing and limiting your other choices out of fear, uncertainty, and doubt.

Genesis Hosted Security

Here’s our three-tiered approach:

  • Our audited, locked down configurations protect you without hindering your publishing productivity.
  • Our network level DOS/DDOS protection gives you peace of mind when some jerk tries to use a common attack to make you lose uptime and money.
  • Our exclusive Synthesis Security software proactively blocks hack attempts without hindering performance or subjecting your visitors to obnoxious false positives.

Genesis Creators’ Expertise

You get the expert knowledge from the people that created this amazing framework.

We understand this because we’ve made all the mistakes while building multiple high-traffic business websites for ourselves, way before we ever got in the hosting business (unlike just about every hosting company you can name). Synthesis was created as an in-house necessity by internet entrepreneurs, professional bloggers, and maniacal Linux gearheads who eat, sleep, and breathe web traffic.

    I use managed hosting for WordPress after trying different levels of VPS and a Pro shared account.

    I have no doubt that its the best way to go for hosting WordPress sites and highly recommend you try a managed host like Synthesis or WPEngine.

    The speed and security are very impressive and you don’t need to do anything as its all taken care of.

    I tried both wpengine and websynthesis and I prefer wpengine. Here are the main reasons;

    Reason-1: my speed tests, ping and tracert showed better results at wpengine

    Reason-2: Support is much better at wpengine. They are very helpful and friendly. The support team at websynthesis is not very cooperative, not helpful, and has very rude attitude.

    wpengine also has instant Chat Support you can use anytime.

    Reason-3: wpengine has better back-up system. You can create backup points, then when you need it, you can select a backup and hit “Restore” to restore your site to a previous version instantly. So I always create a new backup points before you I make any changes or add anew plugin etc. I can also download .zip files of my backups for safe keeping.

    So I do not have to pay extra for daily or instant backup services.

    Reason-4: Security; wpengine has their in-house system for vulnerability scanning. They also use SecTheory and Sucuri for external network connections. they scan and monitor your web site and database for known vectors and exploits.

    I am not affiliated with any of the hosting companies. These are my honest opinion and experience after I use them both. Choosing a reliable hosting company, especially the one you feel comfortable contacting them any time for support and advice is very important. I hope this helps for other web site owners.

    Best regards.
