Putting It All Together: Yotta Media's GreenVault Managed WordPress Hosting
As a service to our customers we provide the ultimate in affordable, full-service managed website hosting services for our design clients. We are honestly not aware of any similar service that is even close to what Yotta Media provides at our price point. We can do this because we only host sites that we know, since we built them. There are few surprises, unlike other managed hosting services that must deal with every strange site they take on.
Think of our hosting environment as an exclusive website neighborhood where we know all the residents and have full control over each site as well as the overall picture. There are no "strangers" or abusive behavior that could negatively affect your site. It's a great place!
What is Managed Hosting?
Like anything worthwhile, good websites need proper maintenance. They must be kept up-to-date to assure reliability, good performance, and security against a wide variety of internet threats. Regular backups are crucial in the event of an unforeseen emergency. Security must be top-notch to deter threats. Websites should be monitored on an ongoing basis and alerts generated if a problem occurs. In addition, keeping an eye on statistics and the user experience is important too.
Some people have the skills to do this themselves but in our experience, most clients need some help. The problem is that most of the time, that help can be quite expensive. We provide an affordable, worry-free service for Yotta Media clientele.
Modern web designs consist of various components including the CMS core, themes, plugins and others. The creators of these components constantly improve their products to maintain security, add new features or to improve performance. Many site owners fail to keep on top of these updates and that can lead to trouble since out of date software is one of the top ways hackers can gain access. We make sure your site is always up to date, practically on a daily basis.
The best insurance that you will never need a backup is to make them regularly and keep them secure, ideally in more than one location. So, we make database and full site backups using two completely independent backup systems. We store them securely in separate cloud-based repositories and we keep enough of them to go back up to eight weeks if necessary.

- Media files
In essence, every aspect of your website is safely stored and ready if the need arises.
Website security is a huge issue. Everyone has heard about hackers getting into just about everything. Our GreenVault service provides a multi-pronged approach to security that is extremely effective. This is often added as an up-sell with other providers. We include in our base hosting package since we believe all our clients deserve the best and should not have to pay more to keep their sites secure. While no system can be guaranteed 100% secure all the time (that would simply be impossible), our track record is really good.
Our security measures includes:
- 30+ point WordPress security lock down
- Malware scanning
- File change alerts (upon request)
- Brute Force Protection Network
- Ultra secure two-factor login authentication (upon request)
We monitor your site 24/7 for down time. We know right away if there is a problem that needs our attention.
Convenient Help System
