**Visitors are the number of unique IP addresses that come to all your plan’s sites within a 24-hour period. Daily counts are added to calculate total monthly visitors. We don’t count robots (e.g., Google search bot) against your total. Your plan is designed to provide peak performance and stability within the ideal range of visitors and bandwidth usage. For sites that exceed the suggested visits per month, we will notify you of the need to upgrade your plan.
***Avoid the risk of live editing with a single click. Your testing site is a duplicate of your published site that is staged in a testing environment that allows you to make updates and test without the risk of live edits.
****A $50 value, your SSL certificate keeps payments and customer data secure and helps increase your Google search ranking. An SSL certificate is included with every site and free for the life of the hosting plan. Our hassle-free certificates are automatically installed, validated and renewed. The strong 2048-bit encryption will ensure all transactions are secure.
“The idea of starting a business was incredibly intimidating. Groundwork literally walked me through the process, step by step, setting my business up with a professional and impeccable website and email platform.”

Questions about Managed WordPress?
We’ve got answers.
What is WordPress?
WordPress® is a blog- and Web-publishing platform that’s not only easy to use, but recognized the world over as a standard in website creation. With its focus on aesthetics, Web standards and usability, WordPress is an open-source platform that lets you manage everything from a small personal blog to a large commercial site with hundreds of pages. Hundreds of thousands of sites trust their online presence to WordPress – and with Managed WordPress Hosting from Groundwork, you can too.
What is Managed WordPress Hosting?
Built on our state-of-the-art Web hosting, Managed WordPress from Groundwork is the perfect solution for anyone who wants the power and simplicity of WordPress without the hassle of constant updates and technical adjustments.
More than just a simple install, WordPress is seamlessly integrated to your hosting so the moment you log in, you’re able to build, edit and manage your site. We’ve also modified our servers specifically for WordPress, giving you a level of speed and security you can’t get from a standard Web hosting plan.

How does your version of WordPress differ from other installations?
It doesn’t. We start you out with the latest version of WordPress, the same one you’d download from WordPress.org. And anytime there’s an update, we install it for you automatically. You never have to hassle with installing another update or worry about running an outdated or compromised version of WordPress.
Do I need to set up my database?
Nope! With Managed WordPress Hosting, we take care of everything so the process is as easy as possible for you. Once you’ve purchased your plan, you can immediately create your website or start blogging.
If I have a WordPress site hosted somewhere else, can I move it to Groundwork?
Yes! You can migrate your site over to Groundwork Managed WordPress in just one click. Either move it to your domain name or put it on a temporary domain, then just do a quick review and you’re ready to publish.
