Finding a WordPress hosting provider may not be as easy as it looks! Sure you can choose pretty much any web hosting company that offers PHP and MySQL to get your WordPress site online but behind the scenes, there is so much more that you should care about!
As a hosting company, we know WordPress is king! Everyone wants to use it as it’s so diverse and flexible that it covers almost everyone’s needs.
We love WordPress so much, that we believe hosting WordPress with us would give your blog faster performance which can also help your Google rankings. We’ve listed 10 reasons below why you should have WordPress hosting with Cyber Host Pro.
1 – OptimumCache
If a website hosting company has a large number of WordPress installations on a server, if 50 of them have active website visitors then in the background on the server there are 50 x index.php files being processed by the web server! Every WordPress pretty much has the same index.php file content, and your unique content comes from your pages, posts & themes.
Here at Cyber Host Pro, we wanted to try to optimize this as much as possible, we’ve now come up with a solution by introducing OptimumCache which is a brand new technology.
Now on our servers, the OptimumCache technology will load just one index.php for that version of WordPress in the background on our server that will cover all WordPress installations! This takes the load of our server down by 10-20x which in result makes your WordPress website load quicker.
A visual example of this is:
2 – Technical Support

3 – Image Optimization Ready
We recommend every single WordPress user installs the plugin Imagify on their WordPress websites, our Linux servers are optimized for Imagify plugin, it will optimize all of your images which will make your WordPress much faster loading on all browsers, resulting in better website performance which can really help your search engine rankings! Imagify will scan all your current images and shrink their file sizes, it will also automatically optimize all images as you upload them to blog posts!
4 – Content Delivery Network (CDN) / CloudFlare
All our website hosting packages come with FREE CloudFlare integration, a CDN will cache your website static content on other servers around the world which will host bulky items such as images and CSS away from our server resulting in faster load time of your website which in return can help your search engine rankings! It’s really easy to get CloudFlare enabled! Simply log in to your cPanel and click the CloudFlare icon, enter your email address and away you go!
5 – CageFS
CageFS is a secure file system, each cPanel user will have their own mini virtual operating system on our servers, this will give the user access to their own files and folders only. By hosting your WordPress blog with us, if another WordPress on our server is not updated or has a security hole in a plugin/theme resulting in that site being hacked, the hacker will not be able to use hacking tools to scan for other WordPress users on our server to then hack your WordPress blog! CageFS also stops hackers from being able to view any server configuration to try to exploit our servers giving you peace of mind your WordPress is being hosted by a UK hosting provider who cares about your security.
Our auto-upgrade tool can automatically upgrade your WordPress, plugins, and themes when available! This gives you peace of mind that your WordPress website is regularly updated without you needing to log in to upgrade your plugins and themes, this is ideal for those who do not regularly log in to their WordPress wp-admin or do not know how to perform updates to the installation, plugins or themes.
To enable auto-upgrade login to Cpanel, scroll down and click the WordPress logo under Softaculous. If your WordPress website is not already in the list click Import (top right menu tab) Once you see your website in the list click the pencil icon to “edit” and tick the option “Auto Upgrade”
7 – WordPress Optimized Web & Database Servers
Cyber Host Pro love WordPress, we’ve optimized our servers to their best possible performance for all CMSs, all websites by default come with PHP 5.6 (with free options to downgrade/upgrade) and OPCache which helps the performance of PHP. We’ve also introduced ls_php modules (LiteSpeed) recently, this makes PHP based websites like WordPress much faster, installing LS_PHP also enhanced the OptimumCache (from reason number 1 above).
Our customers do not need to do anything to activate any of these features, these are automatically enabled and running in the background for all websites hosted on our Website Hosting service. Our servers also support mod_deflate which compresses your content and makes your website faster, so make sure you click “Optimize Website” in Cpanel and click compress all content to further enhance your performance! We’ve also replaced MySQL with MariaDB which gives your website much faster reading and writing access to your WordPress database.
Our Website Hosting comes with a web application firewall that monitors applications including WordPress for unusual activity. Our supplier, Comodo, pushes updates to our system every 30 minutes with the latest threats and automatically block known intrusions to your WordPress website.
If a hacker comes to your website and tries to do a known hack or SQL injection this will automatically be blocked by the Comodo web firewall. The Comodo firewall is free of charge and enabled by default to all of our Website Hosting customers.
All of our Website Hosting servers are high spec Dell servers 2015/16 models. Each Server has Dual Intel 8 core processors giving maximum CPU power and around 128-256GB Ram Each! Plus all of our website hosting is now powered by Enterprise level SSD disks giving you the fastest Disk performance available!
10 – Free Backup & Recovery
Once a day we take a full backup of our website hosting servers, these backups are held on a separate server in the same data centre connected on a super-fast connection for quick backup and recovery. If you ever need a restore the process is very easy, simply log in to cPanel, click the icon “R1Soft” and choose a date to recover back to! It’s easy to use and you can choose what to restore and what date to restore back to, for example, you can restore just 1 file or folder back to a version from 5 days or 7 days ago! You can easily recover a database the same way too! This is included at no extra cost with your website hosting plan.
