WORDPRESS HOSTING, PERFECTED

Stunning speed, powerful security, and the most fanatical customer service.

At Kickassd, WordPress isn’t just a platform, it’s our passion.

  • Wordpress Auto Updates
  • Zend OpCache
  • Pure SSD Storage
  • Litespeed WordPress Cache
  • CloudLinux Web Hosting
  • Powerful Firewall (WAF)



What are the top 4 most important factors for your WordPress hosting and website? For most it will be: Uptime, Support, Performance, and Security.

Each one of these in it's own right is the most important feature of your Wordpress Hosting. A failure on any of them can have a devastating effect on your website and business online. We have went to great lengths to make sure that any chances of a "failure" on any of these is absolutely minimized.

Best WordPress speed, uptime, support and security!


Wordpress Staging


All our managed WordPress hosting plans include WordPress staging
using VersionPress, a version control plugin for WordPress built
on Git. With VersionPress you can:

  • Undo changes
  • Create staging sites
  • Merge databases ← yes, really!

Possibly the best thing about WordPress is how simple it makes most things. Just a couple of clicks and there you have new plugin installed, a shiny theme activated, that annoying user deleted, and so on. People love this, and we do too.

But there's a flip side to it, however. Most actions are irreversible and done straight on the live site, which is dangerous. What if a plugin had a bug? What if you your client did something stupid? These things happen and are unpleasant to deal with.

With our hosting plans you can easily create a safe testing environment for your changes and only merge them back when they are ready!

Amazing Performance

Our premium WordPress Hosting is built for speed and highly tuned to squeeze every last ounce of
performance out of an already extremely fast environment. Tired of under-performing WordPress sites?
Spin up a WordPress site in under a minute and let our specialized for WordPress hosting environment
take care of your performance. What makes our Managed WordPress Hosting so darn fast?

  • Litespeed + LScache
    The ultimate in speed, efficiency, stability, and security. Faster than Nginx and Varnish in both
    http and https, you just cannot go wrong with this combination

  • Zend Opcode Cache
    This greatly improves performance on pages that cannot or should not be cached, especially nice on
    E-commerce sites and even in the WordPress admin area.

  • MariaDB (Highly Tuned)
    We spend a lot of time tweeking and tuning MariaDB (Mysql) and this has a large impact on performance.

  • Pure SSD
    We use only SSD drives in RAID 10. This offers screaming fast performance across all aspects of your
    WordPress site, simply put: Everything is much faster.

  • No overselling
    … period. We are a bit more expensive than some WordPress Hosting providers, and this is one of the
    main reasons. Oversold servers suffer greatly in performance, especially with TTFB (time to first byte).
    Our servers average under .200 for TTFB, this would not be possible on a server that was oversold, or
    had other performance issues.

    Fanatical support

    You can have the best setup in the world, but if support is not awesome, than really what is the point? Our staff are highly trained, motivated, and want to make sure that your time at kickassd kicks ass! Average ticket response time is under 15 minutes with full resolution in most cases under 30 minutes. We do not outsource support, and you will never get a generic canned response that points you towards an article that kind of sort of helps you but quite possibly does not.

    Our commitment to customer support is unwavering, and is of the highest priority to us.

99.99% Uptime Guarantee


Kickassd consistently maintains 99.99% uptime across all of our servers. Achieving this is not an easy
task, here is how we do it.

  • Top quality commercial grade hardware and software.

  • Monitoring And Automation: Every server we have, and every service on those servers is triple
    monitored for availability, response, and load. We have our own internal monitoring center and
    also use 2 external monitoring systems. Every server has the ability to start or restart the services
    that run on it if that service is found to be down, hung, or slower than it should be. Drives and
    Raid arrays are constantly monitored for any indications of an issue.

  • Technologies such as Kernel Care that automate kernel updates and relieve the need for a reboot
    for the new kernel to be active.


At Kickassd your WordPress site is always online, and always lightning fast.

    Top Notch Security

    You wakeup, it is an awesome morning. The coffee is great, sun is shining, birds are singing, and you are ready to get to work on your WordPress site. You open the page and are met with giant red text that has apparently massacred your beautiful site. It reads “Hacked By The Singing Turkey“. You are unable to access the admin area, this day just went from great to horrible.

    Our WordPress Hosting and server environment is setup to minimize the chances of this happening. We take your sites security and your data security very, very seriously, and have invested our time heavily into minimizing the chances of something like this happening. Here is in short form some of the ways that we minimize this, and they are very effective.

  • Always up to date
    Let our system auto-update the WordPress core, Plugins, and themes. Out of date WordPress files is one of the biggest reasons that sites get compromised.

  • Constantly Evolving And Improving Firewall (WAF)
    Awesome set of Mod Security rules (WAF). We are extremely proactive with our Mod Security rules and constantly modify and update them based on attacks we see in the logs. For this reason our Mod Security rules work quite well and actively protect your WordPress site site against brute force attacks, injection attempts, cross scripting attacks, xmlrpc attacks and much more. All silently and instantly these attacks are taken care of, and your site protected.

  • PCI Compliant
    All our servers are PCI compliant which is not all that common in shared hosting due to the extra work and time investment required. This can be quite important especially for E-commerce stores that are processing and storing sensitive data. Just another step we take to give you that little something extra!

  • Free R1Soft Backups
    Even the best protected site and server can become a victim if an attacker is skilled and determined, it is just a fact of the Internet. Having backups can really save your bacon and at times can be the only way to restore your site without paying big $$$ for it to be cleaned. We backup all of your data, files, databases everyday into the cloud, backups are available up to 30 days in the past. Backups are also encrypted and cannot be accessed or read without the key.

What our customers have to say about us


  • Kickassd has been the fastest, fairest, and friendliest host of all - I'll continue making recommendations to other webmasters on their behalf because I actually feel confident that they'll prove me right.
  • I host a couple of dozen sites at Kickassd and have been delighted with them in the three areas of greatest importance to me: high uptime, fast loading, and great customer service. I stumbled on them by chance about eight months ago and have been grateful on a daily basis ever since then. Highly recommended.
  • I've used other hosting providers in the past, most notably... the big domain retailers like Hostgator and GoDaddy... and, my experience there was less than great. Now, after moving to Kickassd through the advice of a friend, I'm finding myself happier and happier that I made the switch to these folks. We're a small business, and operating smoothly and with ease is what's on my mind most of the time...

    so, when I say that these guys deliver with both smoothness and ease, I mean it. I'm not personally a tech guru, but, they've enabled me to go full steam ahead with multiple websites for our different entities - and, along the way they've answered questions related to the front end payments due from the services I've requested, all the way to the back-end, keying me in on how to set up certain page privileges for our users. CHUCK IS THE MAN!
  • Kickassd transferred my site (very old) site for free with few issues in February 2016, when they were just starting out. Another company, who charged $100, failed to transfer the site after 3 months! The site is lightning fast, and the support is "fanatical" as touted on their website.
  • I've been running a site for about 6 months now that relies on organic SEO for traffic - so speed is of particular importance to me in making certain that I'm giving myself the best chance to rank higher (and better UX of course).

    They transferred my whole site overnight, then my domain for a very small fee, set everything up and were positive and communicative throughout the whole process. The speeds I'm getting now, even on their most basic plan, are in the high 90s in gmetrix.
  • User-friendly features like an easily navigable dashboard and cPanel to control all of your site’s workings make it an extremely good web hosting service. If you were in desire of something that can bridge the gap of performance and pricing between a shared hosting and dedicated hosting then you should try out Kickassd.
  • Moved over from another web host at the recommendation of some people on Reddit, and was pleasantly surprised. On my old host I constantly had micro outages and performance issue, they also tried to upsell me constantly saying I needed more resources.

    Kickassd moved my sites for me and notified me that I had a Wordpress plugin that was causing large resource spikes. After disabling that plugin they recommended I use the Litespeed Wordpress cache plugin to speed things up and reduce resources. I did that and wow! Sites are now flying!

    Killer experience so far, super friendly support that makes you feel like you are a part of a family almost. Thanks Kickassd!
  • I have begun my journey with Kickassd hosting my main domain property, dougf.ca in 2017. My experience to this point has been stellar without reservation. Chuck and his team pride themselves with service, speed and security, making their service worth every penny over and over again.

    They are very competitve and affordable. I will update and expand details as time goes on. Don't hesitate to check them out and contact them. Do I sound excited about them? Yes, I do. Yes, I am. This is why my main domain property is now hosted with Kickassd.
  • So far(8 months) 100% uptime, very fast environment, Litespeed, OpCode Caching, supports Litespeed Wordpress cache plugin, Free MagicSpamPro, Free R1soft backups into cloud, SSH access. And the support. The support is very fast and personal.

    No canned responses and they really go out of there way to help you and make sure you are happy.
  • Moved my website over to Kickassd two months a go. Im amazed by the performance but even more so by the support. Chuck is my new personal hero!
  • This hosting is super fast and the customer service so far has gone above and beyond to help me get everything transferred over and get it up and running again on their system. I only regret not having changed hosts sooner.
