Kinsta hosting, managed by Cornershop
Simplify your hosting situation by sticking with us! Cornershop manages a robust system for dozens of WordPress sites supported through the popular hosting provider Kinsta. This hosting environment is optimized for WordPress sites and is ideal for sites that receive up to 40,000 visitors per month. It is fast, reliable, and secure — and the best thing about hosting with Cornershop’s managed hosting is that you don’t have to worry about site outages or calling your host in a panic: our team will constantly monitor your site uptime, and bring the site up for you should it ever go down. No more frustrating chat conversations or inscrutable invoices with faceless hosting providers: you’ll be talking to real people at Cornershop in the unlikely event that problems arise.
Our Kinsta agency plan gets your site access to 16 PHP workers on your WordPress site instead of Kinsta's default 2 - 4 PHP workers. Learn more about Kinsta and Cornershop's hosting plans.
Pantheon hosting, managed by Cornershop
If you’re looking for bulletproof hosting with some of the highest levels of security, performance, and speed on the planet, Pantheon is your best option. Each Pantheon-hosted site comes with a multi-stage environment, allowing you to test new features in a development environment, preview on a staging environment, and then easily push to your live server once it’s perfect. Pantheon is a more costly host but offers lots of benefits with that price as listed above. Because we do a lot of development with Pantheon hosted sites, you can use Cornershop's preferred pricing (assuming that you haven't already setup billing for your Pantheon account).
Pantheon's preferred agency plan details: https://pantheon.io/plans/agency-preferred-pricing .
Note: When Pantheon lists the annual price, multiply that price 12x since you are paying the annual cost upfront.
These are the prices as of 11/04/2021:

Your Own Host
If you already have a hosting provider and are happy with their service, we can likely work with this. As long as the server meets WordPress’s minimum recommendations of PHP 7.1 or greater, MySQL 5.6 or greater, HTTPS support, and shell/ssh access, we can work with your desired host. However, as there are hundreds of hosting companies and systems out there, many of which we’ve never or only rarely worked with, we may need to request additional time to work with your host, and we’ll likely need at least a little bit of extra to simply verify your host is up to snuff.
