WordPress Website Hosting

Why host your WordPress site with KLD?

When you host your website with us (and our partners at lightningbase.com), you receive an extra level of service that helps to keep your site running trouble free: 

  • Excellent security. We have over 80 WordPress sites hosted with us, and have not we have not had a site hacked on our servers to date. 
  • Automatic Backups. By default, full backups are taken weekly and database backups taken daily – and all are sent offsite.
  • Excellent service.  Our teams are very responsive and can jump on issues as they arise. 
  • SSL is included in hosting plans (HTTPS). This gives your users the assurance any information they give you is secure. This will also prevent any security warnings coming up in browsers. Google is ranking sites with SSL higher vs. ones who don’t.
  • Uptime Monitoring. We will be alerted if your site goes down, and can start an investigation quickly. 
  • Form Spam Prevention via CleanTalk to reduce the amount of spam form submissions.
  • Fast, WordPress optimized servers.


Lightningbase works hard to keep sites safe:

  • At the server edge they deploy a dynamic firewall, automatically updated based upon detected threats
  • A webapp firewall is updated daily to actively block malicious access attempts, and includes a variety of WordPress-specific rules
  • Virus/exploit scanning is run on any changed file, with automatic quarantining and proactive responses to compromised accounts
  • Virtual containers separate customers and hide the real root filesystem from user accounts
  • Various WordPress-specific security actions are taken, such as brute-force mitigation, automatic TimThumb updating, basic comment-spam protection, and more, updated as new WordPress exploits emerge.
