Why host your WordPress Blog with UnixGuru?

LiteSpeed Enterprise Web server, with LiteSpeed Specific cache plugin (LSCWP).

Elastic-Sites Scalability – Scale as your site grows evermore popular!


LSCWPUnixGuru Hosting employs LiteSpeed web server technology, which when combined with Elastic-Sites offers the fastest, most stable and secure platform upon which to run your WordPress based website or blog.

Too big for shared hosting? Think again, our Elastic-Sites platform will allow you to use up to 8 CPUs and 16GB of RAM.

Faster than NGINX, LiteSpeed has LSCache (a Varnish like cache, built into the web server) it makes your website Super Fast!!

LiteSpeed has developed their own caching plugin, LSCWP, for WordPress to fully utilise LSCache, available from WordPress’s own plugin directory.

LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress (LSCWP) uses a plugin for WordPress to communicate with LiteSpeed Web Server and LSCache to statically cache your dynamic WordPress pages, at the web server level, greatly reducing page load time and server load. As development continues, LiteSpeedTech will be adding many more features – such as ESI support similar to what can be seen in LiteMage Cache for Magento.

VPS Like Security, only better!

Each user has their own virtual filesystem, with their own copy of safe binaries and no access to files that belong to other users. Other users don’t get access to your files either, as they are locked in their own filesystem too.

So the only way that your WordPress install could become compromised will be down to what you do, and not what other customers do.

But unlike a VPS you get with the “hardened/locked-down” approach of a Shared Server, this makes your environment even safer than a VPS.

Elastic-Sites technology means that we can scale your hosting enviroment to match the power of a VPS/Dedicated server should your site prove popular enough.


Security, but flexibility!!

Although the environment is locked down, you can change the version of your PHP, which modules are included with PHP and which settings are in your php.ini, through our PHP selector, which makes the necessary changes to your filesystem and system settings in real-time. In this way, you can test whether your application works better or faster with other versions of PHP, or with specific modules included or excluded.


pmsymbolPatchman automated vulnerability patching

WordPress is often targeted by hackers, who look for old versions of WordPress that are vulnerable to attack and compromise. Customers are often unwilling to keep their sites up to date, as updates can often break websites.

However, unpatched websites will eventually be compromised and will be broken anyway.

Patchman detects WordPress code which is vulnerable and patches the vulnerability rather than forcing customers to upgrade. Automatically informing the customer of vulnerabilities, it gives them the option of fixing the issue themselves, but will eventually automatically patch the vulnerability.

Keeping customer sites intact minimises the chance of reputation loss, which can so often occur should your site become compromised.

Keeping sites safe, automatically, seriously decreases downtime due to compromise, and keeps server resources for your code, rather than a hackers malicious code.

By swapping attack information with other hosts and honeypots, we are able to stop 99% of malicious traffic from entering our network.


Comodo WAF

The Web Application Firewall stops brute force attacks in their tracks, as unlike log trawling, a WAF can tell if an attempt to login worked or failed. The WAF also stops many attacks against compromised plugins and older versions of WordPress.


Security RobotSecurity Robot

UnixGuru has a special security robot, that trawls log files and LiteSpeed APIs to find our who’s attacking your blog, and slows them down by working hand in hand with our dynamic “self-configuring” firewall and Bitninja to thwart threats and keep out the bad guys. By looking through log files we can find IPs which are performing slow methodical attacks.



UnixGuru offers Softaculous to install your WordPress with one click.

Softaculous, as well as installing your site, can auto-upgrade your site as new versions come out, including your plugins, and can automatically make a backup when it does so, just in case.



Hundreds of WordPress blogs are installed on each Shared Hosting server. 90%+ of their files are the same, so why cache each one individually. OptimumCache de-duplicates file in the filesystem cache, meaning your files stay in cache longer, and we have more memory to cache more files and serve more websites faster. This is particularly effective if you keep your site up to date (like the majority of customers) and stick to popular plugins.



We host more than 11,000 WordPress sites and are familiar with how it works and will always maintain an environment which will be optimised for WordPress.


WordPress Suitable Hosting

All of our plans are more than suitable for hosting WordPress.

WordPress Requirements are:-

  • PHP 5.4+, we offer 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 & 7.0 via our PHP Selector (WordPress core works with PHP 7 and is much faster than PHP 5)
  • MySQL 5.5 or above, we offer MariaDB 10.1.6 (based on MySQL 5.7)
  • mod_rewrite, our LiteSpeed web server is compatible with Apache mod_rewrite, only much faster.

However, if your site gets a lot of traffic, you could even consider our Premium hosting packages as they offer lots of RAM and faster disk throughput and your own dedicated IP address. These packages will exceed the performance of the majority of VPS packages available from other hosts.

30-days Moneyback Guarantee for ALL Shared, Reseller & Premium Hosting Plans


Shared hosting is available across 13 European zones: Belgian (BE), British (UK), Czech (CZ), Finnish (FI), French (FR), German (DE), Irish (IE), Italian (IT), Lithuanian (LT), Dutch (NL), Polish (PL), Portuguese (PT), Spanish (ES)
