The WordPress Hosting experience - Bought cheaply and paid dearly? - Jan Löffler, CTO Plesk - CloudFest 2019

Download to read offline

There are two main customer types in the world of WordPress: The greed-is-cool guy and the one who happily pays a premium for services that help to increase both performance and security of web projects and agility of workflows. What’s the difference between the two and who’s the one you want to go after? There are so many WordPress hosting offerings available and even we’re getting confused when trying to compare them all. So we asked experts to do it instead. In his talk Jan will not only share some of the results and introduce his vision of the best-in-class WordPress hosting. He’ll bring a surprise guest telling you how to make a WordPress user happy and let hosters stand out from the crowd. Becoming the most wanted WordPress hoster alive is easier than you think. Join in and be the first to hear about the latest product innovations from Plesk.
