  1. 1. Managed WordPress Hosting came about because of the need for WordPress bloggers for a more robust solution for their blogs.WordPress blogs were prone to attacks from hackers and spammers and hence required a regular backup. Moreover there were a lot of blogs which has huge traffic and hence required a hosting solution that could better handle the traffic. Add to it the fact that one would always be looking for a managed solution, so that they don’t have to do the regular updates or, troubleshoot technical problems and there arose the need for a customized solution. Thus was born Managed WordPress Hosting Solutions.
