WordPress announces Bluehost managed cloud hosting

WordPress.com and Bluehost announced a new managed WordPress cloud hosting solution that offers optimized WordPress performance features not available in traditional shared, VPN and dedicated hosting environments. WordPress' new managed cloud service virtually handles all the technical details for hosting a fast and secure website with 100% uptime.

Managed WordPress hosting

Managed WordPress hosting is a type of hosting optimized for WordPress websites with built-in security and tools for small businesses, developers and agencies.

The difference between Bluehost and WordPress.com's new hosting is that it brings all of WordPress' managed optimizations to a cloud hosting platform that brings a higher level of performance and scale that surpasses traditional shared, VPS, and dedicated hosting environments. :

The new cloud hosting infrastructure offers built-in security, DDOS protection, CDN and scalability that virtually guarantees that the site will always be available at the fastest possible speed.

Managed cloud hosting is basically hosting in a network of data center servers and can be as large as a global network of data centers, offering benefits not available in other hosting environments.

A shared hosting environment is a single server that hosts thousands of websites. Shared hosting is cheaper, but their performance levels are generally at the lowest levels.

A virtual private server (VPS) is generally a hosting environment that acts as a dedicated server that is shared on a single machine with a limited number of other virtual servers. These offer a high level of performance, but they don't offer the benefits of managed WordPress hosting, as it falls on the hosting subscriber to DIY security and other hosting requirements.

A dedicated server is a single machine under the control of a single publisher. The word 'control' is the key to dedicated hosting, as a dedicated server offers complete control over the server. A dedicated server requires technical knowledge to run, but provides incredibly fast and responsive websites.

A cloud hosting environment offers hosting on multiple machines in a data center, which is why it is called a cloud. Unlike other cloud providers, Bluehost's managed WordPress cloud environment is based on a global infrastructure.

According to Bluehost:

“Bluehost Cloud is built and supported by top WordPress experts and powered by redundant global server infrastructure.

… This platform is built on a scalable, multi-region fault-tolerant infrastructure, ensuring 100% network availability and enabling seamless scaling according to traffic demands.”

Who is Bluehost WordPress Managed Cloud for?

The Bluehost WordPress Cloud hosting environment is designed for publishers and shops who take their business seriously and demand reliable uptime, the highest levels of performance, and thoroughly locked down security.

Prices start at $79.99/month and go up to $299/month (early bird prices up to 56% off). The difference between each plan is the amount of virtual centralized processing units (vCPU) and SSD storage space that is allocated. The lowest-level cloud hosting is perfect for a single website, while the higher-priced options are optimized for hosting multiple websites or a single website with a lot of traffic.
