// WordPress Tutorial
In today’s video, you will learn the best managed hosting for WordPress and how to set up your account and install WordPress on Flywheel.
This question came from Jim, a brand new business owner, who was stuck setting up his WordPress website: Where do I host my WordPress website?
Jim wanted to know the best managed WordPress hosting company and how to set up his account and get WordPress installed.
I created the following video to share with you my favorite managed WordPress hosting company (a fast and easy way to create your web hosting account and install WordPress):
What is managed WordPress hosting?
Managed WordPress hosting is like having a dedicated manager for your WordPress hosting where you leave all of the technical aspects of running WordPress to your host.
You can focus on running your business and not stress about things like: installing WordPress, automated daily backups, WordPress security, core updates and server-level caching.
What is the best managed WordPress hosting?
Over the past 15 years, I have tried a number of different website hosting companies: PappaShop, GoDaddy, SiteGround, BlueHost, HostGator, WP Engine and Flywheel.
Following are my top choices based upon my experience with reliability, uptime, customer support and overall pricing:
Runner-up: WP Engine
Honorable Mention: SiteGround
Here are just a few reasons why I love Flywheel:
EVERYTHING IS TAKEN CARE OF FOR YOU
Upgrades, security, migrations, you name it – Flywheel handles it. In the long run, this absolutely winds up saving you time, money, IT resources, and so much more.
YOUR SITE GETS ITS OWN DEDICATED RESOURCES
With Flywheel's platform (powered by Google Cloud!), you don’t share resources like you do on shared hosting. This means no one’s site will interfere with your performance or security; it’s safe and sound!
BLAZING FAST SPEED
Flywheel tunes their servers for optimal WordPress performance and configure all the caching, so you don’t have to spend time worrying about site speed!
Flywheel does their best to stay on top of the latest security vulnerabilities and reduce the possibility that your site will be compromised. And IF your site is somehow compromised, they’ll fix it for free.
AWESOME SUPPORT TEAM
When you call for help, you’ll get a real-live human on the other end, rather than dealing with a robot! And if you have any technical questions, they will find the answer and help you out.
FREE PREMIUM WORDPRESS THEMES
You get the Genesis Framework and over 30 premium StudioPress themes for free with any paid Flywheel plan. (That’s a value of over $2,000!)
