Fast, secure and reliable UK Wordpress web hosting from just /month or /year
Give your website the home it deserves with one of our market-leading UK Wordpress hosting packages.
Choice of Three Wordpress Web Hosting Plans
With a 100% UPTIME GUARANTEE on all Hosting Plans
All of our Wordpress hosting plans include autoscaling and load balancing technologies.
Typical WordPress pages hosted on our platform load in just a quarter of a second. This compares to other UK hosts which take up to 11.92 seconds. Page speed is crucial for better search engine rankings and happy visitors. Google’s research has revealed that 47% of users expect a page to load in under 2 seconds. 52% state that fast load time is important to brand loyalty. Every millisecond makes a difference.
Key Features of all plans
Our Wordpress hosting platform includes the following features as standard
for ultimate speed and security at no extra cost to you.
STACKCACHE FOR SPEED
Our WordPress platform sits behind a pre-configured NGINX edge cache system: StackCache. It speeds 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 allows this.
UPDATES FOR SECURITY
By default, our update service will ensure your WordPress install gets the latest versions and patches as soon as they’re available. This helps prevent you becoming vulnerable to bugs or exploits. We also include a custom-made web application firewall to filter-out malicious requests.
BACKUPS FOR PEACE OF MIND
Timeline Backups are there to protect your website data. They take daily backups of your WordPress site and database, allowing you to restore back to that time. This helps if you’ve been hacked - or if you’ve made a serious mistake, like deleting something you shouldn’t!

On the ‘mobile-first’ web, page loading speed is more important than ever. That’s why we employ the StackCache plugin. It uses a NGINX edge cache system that ensures the quickest response. Advanced users can manage their cache content from the in-built StackCache interface inside WordPress.
Software resource pool
As we run our platform, we’re able to fine-tune its performance around the software. Each site is given its own PHP-FPM resource pool - which is needed to run a WordPress site - from which it can run scripts quickly. We ensure that the latest and fastest PHP 7 version is installed.
Our OPcache ensures that the human-readable code is only parsed into machine-readable code once, on execution. It then caches the code for when it is next requested - instead of ‘translating’ it each time. This means fewer operations and a faster site. MySQL resources are similarly pooled and tuned to execute WordPress requests as quickly as possible.
Security and safety
We update the WordPress software on your behalf so it’s secure from vulnerabilities. All sites on our WordPress platform are also behind a custom-built web application firewall that filters-out evil requests. We also monitor plugins and block any that could harm your site. Finally, you have timeline backups available should anything go seriously wrong.
Frequently asked questions
- How long will it take to set up my hosting package?
Your hosting package is set up for you straight after purchase so you can get started right away.
- What is Autoscaling?
All our web hosting platforms use autoscaling technology. Autoscaling is what makes them ‘true cloud’ platforms: resources allocated to your website are scaled up or down, dependent on demand. So if there’s a traffic surge, your site continues to function and offer the same fast experience for every user.
Your site isn’t hosted on one or two servers. Instead, it can access the whole platform’s compute, memory and storage resources. So, if for any reason your server is slow, another can step in and take over seamlessly. We always keep plenty of resource in reserve.
Also, by not being tied to particular servers, it means that if your hosting ‘neighbours’ become busy, it doesn’t impact on your site's speed. This isn’t the case with many other hosting providers.
- What is Load Balancing?
Load balancing is about sharing traffic across servers. Other web hosts may say they use load balancing - and indeed they do - but not the kind we use. Their load balancing mitigates failover: if a server goes down, your site will be moved to another, so it stays online.
It’s a kind of disaster recovery. That’s expected: we offer that kind of server redundancy as well, even though we use some of the best hardware in the industry - thanks to our Data Centre's long-term partners at Dell - and a robust 10 Gb network.
But our load balancing is of a different calibre.
Our load balancing makes use of monitors that will respond to traffic load and balance it across multiple servers when needed. Many other providers don’t offer this. The consequence for you is this: with CMS Wales, your site stays online, and remains fast, whatever load the servers are under.
- What’s your data centre like and where is it based?
Our UK based state-of-the-art data centre offers the latest in security and environmental technologies and is manned 24/7, ensuring your data and websites are secure and monitored at all times. We have a resilient national network and enterprise level cloud platform so you get the best possible hosting experience.
- What kind of support do you offer?
We have a range of guides and tutorials available for you. We also provide personal support just for you via your Client Area. Our support is UK based and we never outsource it, meaning you’re always speaking to someone in the UK who understands our services and platforms inside out.
