I’ll admit, I never saw a post about Liquid Web managed WordPress hosting coming.

Don’t be scared, but note that there are affiliate links in this post. I only recommend products I use and enjoy. You can read more here.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve used a web host or two in my day.

In fact, I’ve used several dozen in the past nine and a half years of professional WordPress and web development. Only a few have made the list of recommended. Great places like WP Engine and Flywheel. Managed hosts with great customer service, excellent product, and narrow target audiences. These guys know WordPress, they know hosting, and they know how to create an experience that impresses.

But this post isn’t about them. It’s about a host that is relatively new to me. But one that is making impressive leaps in technology and in securing impressive market share in the WordPress space.

Enter Liquid Web

When I heard my friend and former coworker, Chris Lema, was joining a host, I was intrigued. Having spent time working in client services as a developer under Chris, I know that he’s a pro at team building, managing developers, and growing leaders. He’s also got a knack for knowing what clients need, winning big projects and sharing incredible stories. While he writes posts about great hosts and fantastic experiences, joining a hosting company was the last place I thought I’d see him.

But he did and I am glad that he did because what he and his team are creating over there is impressive to say the least.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been trying Liquid Web’s Managed WordPress hosting solution and I’m impressed in every way. From support to speed, features to communication, Liquid Web is making a strong foray into the managed WordPress hosting space. I’m excited to see how they grow the platform. Every week I seem to be getting another look at some awesome new feature that I never realized I really needed. From automatic image processing and automated plugin upgrades with front and back-end bug checks. I’m so impressed that over the next couple of weeks, I’ve got a series of posts detailing my experience and some of my favorite features. Stay tuned!
