The fastest WordPress Hosting: independent evidence

Our WordPress Managed Hosting packages are optimised for speed.

Don’t just take our word for it. Independent tests show that typical WordPress pages hosted on the Acorn Web Hosting platform load in just a quarter of a second. Other UK hosts take up to 11.92 seconds. That makes Acorn Web Hosting up to 48x faster.

These tests were carried out by LoadImpact.com, using 50 concurrent requests. They showed that Acorn Web Hosting were up to 48x faster than other web hosts.

Page speed is crucial for better search engine rankings and happy visitors.

How do we do it?

Our Global CDN and Acceleration Suite

For global edge-caching, all WordPress hosting plans include a free fully-featured Content Delivery Network (CDN). Your content will be stored at data centres close to the user, around the world. Our Website Acceleration Suite optimises images and code to improve site speed. Experiment with over 30 different features or use our ‘one-click’ optimisation to make your site fly!

Our super-fast edge cache engine

Our WordPress platform sits behind a NGINX edge cache system: StackCache, which uses the same infrastructure as our CDN. It’s configured to speed up page loading for users. Although it works straight out of the box, advanced users might want to manage the cached content themselves. The StackCache plugin interface inside WordPress makes this simple.

The Acorn Web Hosting hosting platform

All our servers use autoscaling tech unique to Acorn Web Hosting: instead of your site being limited to the resources of a single server, it has access to the entire hosting platform. We make use of branded hardware, load balancing and 100% SSD storage. Our proprietary PHP optimisation makes your sites faster than light speed! Read more about the Acorn Web Hosting platform.

WordPress Tools

Having the best hosting isn’t just about speed. Acorn Web Hosting WordPress Tools is a set of features and solutions that make developing and managing websites easier.

It was created by the Acorn Web Hosting team, so we’re able to offer it at no extra cost with all our WordPress Hosting.

Managed WordPress Hosting plans from independent experts

Managed updates and security

By default, our update service will make sure you get the latest WordPress versions and patches as soon as they’re available. This helps prevent you becoming vulnerable to bugs or exploits. We also include a web application firewall, 1 Tbps+ DDoS protection, brute-force login protection and malware scanning. More about our free security features.

Daily backups

Timeline Backups protect your website data. They take daily snapshots of your WordPress site and database, allowing you to restore back to an earlier time. You can restore your site in a moment – which helps if you’ve been hacked – or if you’ve made a serious mistake, like deleting something you shouldn’t…

Legendary support

Our UK-based support team are all WordPress hosting experts. They fix things fast and speak plain English. We don’t rely on boilerplate replies – we rely on our technical knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject. This shows in our amazing reviews and perfect Trustpilot score!

Modern, responsive control panel

Legacy control panels are showing their age: they’re complex, slow and cumbersome. MyAcorn Web Hosting is a breath of fresh air, with features at your fingertips. Designed from the start to be responsive and user-friendly, it makes managing your website and email a pleasure, not a chore. Read about MyAcorn Web Hosting.

WordPress Hosting FAQs

Trying a small design tweak or something major like a new theme? Being able to test out your changes in a safe, non ‘live’ environment is a blessing. WordPress Staging clones your website to a safe staging environment that only you can see. You can then make a change and watch everything break…without worrying!

Once it’s all fixed and you’re happy with the site in staging, just click ‘clone to live’ and your site gets updated. No one will need to know about your development hell…

Just choose a package, make payment and enter your domain name. If you don’t have a domain, you can find a domain here. A fresh new install of the latest stable version of WordPress will be ready and waiting for you.

It’s simple to migrate your site using a WordPress plugin, and if you have more than 10 sites to move to us, find out about Assisted Migration.

You also get access to our Migration Centre. You can use this to transfer all website files, databases and email from any provider using CPanel or Plesk, Heart Internet and Fasthosts. It’s a simple process of entering the credentials of your provider and choosing which packages you’d like to migrate. The migration will complete automatically.

Yes, you can code away to your heart’s content in the WordPress Command Line Interface (CLI). It’s included with all WP installs.

WordPress is the world’s most popular content management system (CMS). It’s user-friendly and performs well. It’s open source and easy to install and upgrade.

WordPress benefits from its popularity. As it has the world’s largest ecosystem, a huge number of themes and plugins make it extremely versatile. If you ever have a problem, there should always be someone out there who can help you. That’s why we have a dedicated hosting platform optimised for WordPress.

Still – other CMS are available! If you’d like to run your website on different software, our standard web hosting or Managed VPS might be more up your street.

The magic comes from our load-balancers. They’re constantly monitoring all requests to our network. When a website receives a large number of hits it’s quickly isolated and moved to its own dedicated backend. This keeps your business running quickly at the most critical of times, but also means that your neighbours on our shared hosting aren’t affected by your spikes in traffic. We call these spikes the ‘Dragons’ Den Effect’.

If you want the best performance for your WordPress website, we’d recommend our WordPress Hosting. It’s optimised to ensure WordPress works at its absolute best.

We also provide Linux hosting which can be used for WordPress. But it won’t benefit from the exclusive performance optimisation that you get with StackCache.
