Need help moving your WordPress site to our platform? Our WordPress specialists are happy to help migrate your data and advise on the best practices to ensure a smooth transition. Avoid downtime and hassle.
Simple testing and staging
Our staging feature lets you spin up a test copy of your site in seconds. From there you can test new themes and plugins without affecting your live site. Another click is all it takes to copy those changes over to your live site. Made a mistake? A third click resets quickly removes the changes to your live site.
Millions Of Page Views
We don't place any restrictions on your website. Unlike other managed WordPress providers we don't limit the number of page views or traffic that your site can process each month. Grow your site at your own pace without the worry of limits.
Intuitive Control Panel
Manage your websites through our custom in house control panel. Add billing and tech contacts, review usage and login to your WordPress site directly. Managing multiple sites for multiple clients just became so much simpler.
We install the latest WordPress release on creation of your account, direct from WordPress.org. After that we immediately harden your account with a number of best practice approaches. Your account is then protected around the clock by our customised WAF, providing a layered approach to security.
Managed Automated Updates
Keeping your site, themes and plugins up to date is the single most important and easiest step you can take to keeping your site secure from hackers. We take the headache out of this for you and manage the whole update process. In addition to this, we also run daily updates on your container to ensure every component of your server is up to date with the latest security and stability patches.
Free Let's Encrypt Certificates
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated and open certificate authority that offers free SSL/TLS certificates. Just like a paid for SSL certificate, a Let’s Encrypt certificate provides HTTPS protection for your websites.
We backup your website every day, meaning you can roll back quickly anytime you need. Backups are 100% free on our hosting platform.
All WordPress Hosting accounts are PCI compliant with the security and procedural standards created by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. PCI Compliance ensures security when processing credit card transactions or storing credit card information.
One Click Snapshots
Take an instant snapshot of your WordPress site and store up to five copies on our servers. You can also download your snapshot at any time to ensure you have an offline copy of your site for testing or portability.
By building our WordPress hosting stack from the ground up, we're able to leverage the very best web technologies for the fastest WordPress hosting experience possible.
To demonstate the impressive speed of our WordPress Hosting plan, we ran a speed test on two identical WordPress websites. One test running on WordPress Hosting, the other on our best selling hosting plan, Professional Hosting.
A fast web server with lower resource usage than the more commonly used Apache. We install an optimised version of Nginx and also combine that with Fast-CGI cache to speed up sites. In addition we use ngx_pagespeed, designed by Google which provides a range of performance improvements to any site.
Even though SSD disks are fast, RAM is quicker. By caching your database content directly in RAM, page requests are accelerated even further.
Independent worker pools, and tuned to provide lightning quick response times.
Some of this extreme performance comes from the use of SSD drives to power each and every managed WordPress server we run. SSD drives remove the traditional bottleneck of disk input/output speed. That means just one thing for your site: speed.

The most affordable managed WordPress Hosting solution in the UK
Managed hosting is where we take over a lot of the management issues you would normally handle for your website. This means we optimize our platform to run WordPress as fast as possible for you. We also lock down and secure the platform specifically for WordPress. Finally, we also automatically update WordPress and your plugins for you, so you don't have to worry about the technology of your site falling behind. With traditional website hosts, a lot of these tasks can fall on your shoulders.
We automate as much as we can for you. We install the latest version of WordPress the moment your account is activated. We setup your databases, optimize your container and configure the plan the moment you create an account. Other items like adding SSL or a CDN to your site, are as quick as one simple click in our control panel too. Speaking of which, once your WordPress site is live with us, you can login to it with a single click from our control panel too - streamlining and simplifying your site management.
We offer three plans that host one, five and ten WordPress websites. The plans are priced at £9.95, £29.95 and £49.95 per month respectively. The bigger the plan, the slightly cheaper the per domain cost of hosting your WordPress site. You can upgrade and downgrade from one plan to the next at any time. Upgrades are made through our control panel and are instant. Downgrades need to be processed manually with our support team so we can ensure your site does not break during the downgrade e.g. we review items such as disk space usage before we downgrade your plan.
In a word, fast. In two words, very fast. Using nearly two decades of hosting experience we built our WordPress hosting stack from the ground up for ultra fast performance. Our facilities and IP space are 100% UK based, which means for UK websites your users will have a lightning fast experience. Website speed is also an increasing factor in SEO too, which means if you need your website to rank well online, you need to be hosting within the UK and on speedy hosting too.
We don't fix any arbitrary limits on your site's growth except for storage and RAM. We don't limit the number of page views your site can process, nor do we limit the amount of transfer either. We don't limit the number of concurrent users who can access your site, the size of your database or anything else. If you do find yourself needing more than the standard 25GB storage, or your site needs more RAM and oomph, you can increase resources by 50% for just £5.00 more per month. Only our one domain name plan can be increased with resources.
If you're hosting WordPress with a different company, you can move your site to us at any time. In fact, if you need our help, we also operate a free migration service. We'll move everything for you: content, databases data, you name it.
Our WordPress hosting comes with proxy functionality as standard. This allows you to proxy anything from a given URL to a remote endpoint. This means you can happily mix and match non WordPress technologies using different solutions, but present them to your site visitors as a unified site.
For example, you could run WordPress on one plan for your website, Magento on another for your online store, but present your users one site as domain.com, domain.com/shop - all through our proxy system.
Our proxy service is available for free and you can even host different parts of your site on different hosts, not just 34SP.com. Simply get in touch with us and we'll advise on how we can advise you on our WordPress proxy service.
Bonus points: proxied sites also gain all the benefits of our full page caching.
Our platform is 100% multisite compatible and we don't limit how many sites you can create within your container either. To get started with multisite you just need to let us know you intend to use multiste so we can optimise the account for you. This process takes just a couple of minutes. Remember, multisite has inherent limitations and should only be used in specific use cases, you can read more about this on our Multisite page.
