Restoring backups Do you have Managed WordPress? If so, you can restore your backups directly via the control panel. You can do that to your live environment or a test environment. It is so convenient!

With any other hosting package, you have to restore backups via an FTP client.

Secure your website

Activate web filters

Activate web filters You can decide which web filters you want to activate on your web hosting. These filters check every incoming request to your website. By activating them, you will block malicious code or the most common infections.
Activate autopatching Autopatching allows you to avoid problems. We scan all the files on your hosting package, looking for security vulnerabilities.

You can even choose to fix all the vulnerabilities automatically. This way, your website will remain secure at all times.
Secure folders Secure your folders. This will ensure that users who want to access a file will have to enter a username and password via their browser.

Performance & Caching

GZIP compression GZIP compression allows to compress communication between your hosting package and the browsers used by the visitors of your website. Activate it to make your website faster.
Activate caching Activate the various caching options on your hosting package for a significant performance boost. You can choose between Redis and Varnish.

In addition, you can also activate a RAM disk.
