The hoster from Münster started in 2014 with a clear focus on pure WordPress hosting. The packages from 15 € / month* already include automatic backups and updates from WordPress. In addition, the maintenance of all installed plugins and themes can be booked. Different from other hosters no email accounts or domains included, but packages for e-mails* or individual domains can be booked* if desired.
At Raidboxes, each WordPress installation is packed into a so-called box, thus forming an administrative unit. This keeps the administration of several websites clear. A test environment (staging) can also be activated for each box, e.g. B. to safely test new plugins.
The user interface for managing the box is very modern and clearly laid out. The settings are deliberately kept simple and reduced, but therefore do not offer all the options of a conventional hoster. The Raidboxes Dashboard can be used completely in German or English, and a (still incomplete) Spanish version is also available.
Raidboxes is not a cheap WordPress hoster because many services such as e-mail or domain have to be paid for separately and there is an additional €15 per month for plugin updates. However, the provider offers many services and a high level of comfort optimized for WordPress. This makes Raidboxes our tip for customers who don’t want to mess with the technology behind a WordPress website and want a Carefree package wish.
