LANSING, Mich. – Liquid Web, LLC, the market leader in managed hosting and managed application services to SMBs and web professionals, has officially launched the industry’s first platform dedicated to WooCommerce Stores.

“Our Managed WooCommerce Hosting product is more than just a simple one-click plugin installation. We’ve built a real offering,” said Chris Lema, VP of Products and Innovation. “We’re combining the power of WooCommerce with the industry-leading managed hosting expertise of Liquid Web, allowing store owners to focus on growing their business and leaving the hosting headaches to us.”


WooCommerce is the fastest growing eCommerce platform for store owners today. It sits on top of WordPress which is well known and free. People choose WooCommerce because they sense that it’s an easy to use platform that they can get started with a minimum investment. However, as their stores grow, they are challenged by a lack of staff and expertise to handle the increasing need for design, development and devops. Now they can buy an online store solution with the expectation that they have a provider who is an expert in hosting and a partner in risk mitigation.

The only hosting solution specifically designed for WooCommerce, Liquid Web’s Managed WooCommerce Hosting offering is a unique answer to common pain points for SMB store owners.

Dynamic Resizing Without Downtime
We’ve built a platform that can autoscale. This elastic and scalable platform gives store owners all the resources they need, helping stores stay fast, without requiring architecture or server changes. https://youtu.be/d8IZ2-nLDkw

High Performance Under Heavy Load
We’ve built a different set of tables to store order data that reduce query loads by 95% and increase capacity (without upgrading plans) by more than 75%. https://youtu.be/Sg2mxzFA8xo

Performance Tests Whenever
We’ve created more than 20 performance tests to help store owners know, in advance, that stores will be ready for whatever traffic comes. https://youtu.be/v-eyVsUOIOk

Far More Than Google Analytics
Our partnership with Glew means we can help store order information into actionable data that transforms how SMB’s grow their business. https://youtu.be/afiFqNTmag4

Paying Attention To Abandoned Carts
Our partnership with Jilt, the leader in abandoned cart technology for WooCommerce means store owners can take immediate action to capture lost revenue. https://youtu.be/_qbzB4ZZfI0

“Our customer isn’t buying hosting. Or a plugin. They’re not buying technology. They just expect it all to work. This is why we’re in the ‘managed’ business. We’re innovating and delivering value in a crowded market with a clear sense of the features that make a difference to our SMB stores owners and the designers, developers and agencies who serve them,” said Lema.

“With the addition of Managed WooCommerce Hosting to our product portfolio, we further our mission to empower web dependent professions all over the world to create content and commerce more easily, without worry and knowing they have a real person to turn to when they need help,” said Liquid Web CEO Jim Geiger. “We are very excited about the launch of this innovative product, reaffirming our commitment to simplifying how our SMB customers experience hosting and cloud services and having an important role in powering their business potential.”

TORONTO, CANADA – ServerMania, a leading provider of cloud hosting and dedicated server hosting, is adopting security measures to protect its customers from the privacy and security risks posed by the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities.

The company has also released an advisory urging dedicated server hosting customers to update server operating systems as soon as possible.


Spectre and Meltdown are critical vulnerabilities that exploit flaws in processors manufactured by Intel, ARM, and AMD. These processors are used in almost every computing device, from servers to smartphones. The vulnerabilities can be exploited by an attacker able to run code on the affected machines, revealing sensitive data by bypassing the processor’s built-in protections.

Microsoft and leading Linux distributions, including CentOS and Ubuntu, have released patches that mitigate the risk. Updating server operating systems to patched versions is the only way to protect server hosting customers and their users.

“The Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities expose the vast majority of servers to the risk of compromise and data theft. It’s a huge problem, but the industry has reacted quickly to develop solutions that mitigate most of the risk,” explained ServerMania CEO, Kevin Blanchard, “At ServerMania, we are working with customers to secure servers across our cloud and hybrid server hosting ranges. Dedicated server hosting customers should update their servers as soon as possible.”

Spectre and Meltdown can be exploited by anyone in a position to run code on a server. They are particularly hazardous for multi-tenant systems like the public cloud, which hosts several users on the same server. A malicious user could theoretically run code in a virtual machine they control and access data from the host environment and other virtual machines hosted on the same server. Spectre and Meltdown present a risk in any scenario that allows unvetted code to be run on a server.

ServerMania offers a variety of infrastructure hosting options, including dedicated servers, hybrid servers, and public and private cloud platforms. The company is proactively patching its cloud and hybrid server platforms and is working with its customers to secure dedicated servers.

About ServerMania
ServerMania is a Canadian company with over 14 years of experience building high-performance infrastructure hosting platforms for businesses globally. ServerMania offers a wide range of fully customizable dedicated, hybrid, cloud, colocation and IP Transit services. Their mission is to empower clients by equipping them with fast, reliable, innovative infrastructure hosting while upholding a 100% network uptime SLA. This is assisted by a 24x7x365 rapid response team — one with some of the best response times in the industry. For more information, visit https://www.servermania.com.
