For well over an hour, we talked with AJ Morris of Liquid Web and our WordPress panel about high end WordPress hosting. In recent years, the managed WordPress hosting market has exploded. Several hosting companies are looking to advance managed WordPress hosting to the next level.
Liquid Web has been around for eighteen years. AJ addressed what Liquid Web is doing to stay competitive in the WordPress hosting market. Our WordPress panel talked about the various hosting companies you can choose. What does each company do well and not so well? AJ tolds us what makes Liquid Web unique, and what audience they are targeting.
We touched on various subjects like page speed, SSL certificates, staging environments, client invoicing, and building custom user interface panels. Then, we looked ahead to HTTP/2, and talk about the pros and cons of nginx, Apache, and cPanel.
Brian Jackson from Kinsta was also scheduled to join us as well, but he called in to tell us he was busy fixing a flat tire on his car!
If you are running a web agency, and looking for high end WordPress hosting options, this is an informative episode.
