IO Zoom Launches Managed WordPress Hosting

Web hosting provider offers speed optimized WordPress hosting service, including hardened security, high-performance, simple site migration and management.

IO Zoom has launched a managed WordPress hosting service, the company announced today. WordPress, which powers over 25% of all the websites in the world, is an online, open source content management tool. IO Zoom’s multi-tiered WordPress hosting program includes distinctive performance, security, and management capabilities.

“WordPress is an awesome platform for creating websites” said Kiet Duong, CEO of IO Zoom. “We’re very pleased to be able to help our clients take advantage of the tool to build sites and blogs without having to spend much time on the underlying technical stuff such as security and performance.”

IO Zoom WordPress clients can take advantage of the popular website content management system (CMS) by having it hosted on the IO Zoom cloud infrastructure. The IO Zoom cloud is self-healing. It replicates the client’s WordPress website data to multiple servers with automatic failover.

The service includes the option of creating a “clone” of a WordPress website on a separate "staging" environment on another domain or subdomain with a single click. This enables the site owner to make changes without affecting the live site. IO Zoom allows for syncing of the content on the "staging" environment with the live website once all changes are confirmed to function normally.

IO Zoom's WordPress cloud servers are highly tuned and optimized for the best possible WordPress performance. To this end, the company has replaced Apache with the LiteSpeed web server and its server-side caching, LiteSpeed cache. This innovation greatly reduces overhead and allows caching to be done more quickly and more efficiently than is possible with any other solution.

Security features include a free SSL certificate for every domain by Let's Encrypt, support for HTTP/2, PHP 7, Memcached, and OPcache with 256 MB memory allocation to boost web page load speed. All IO Zoom WordPress sites are also backed up daily.

As detailed on, IO Zoom’s Wordpress hosting service is available in multiple tiers, ranging from $5 per month for two websites with 10GB SSD of storage to $29 per month for unlimited sites and 60GB SSD of storage.
