How Nexcess outshines alternative hosts

Nexcess is where the experts host. Support, speed, and scalability are why 500,000+ sites and stores choose Nexcess managed hosting.

Best host out there!The support provided for Magento is the best out there. I have worked with a dozen or so hosts and none of them provide the in depth knowledge of the platform and how it interacts with the server.

Secure - Speedy - Supported - WordPress HostingThe quick, thorough support from the Nexcess team has been top-notch since day one and continues into our fourth year. The uptime and speed is unmatched from previous solutions.

From the Worst Customer Service to the BESTAfter probably the worst customer service experience EVER, with another WP hosting provider we now have had the BEST customer service experience while getting our website back up and going. Having the ability to talk to a human direct, no chat, no email was a huge plus. Also, they listened and in less than 30 minutes we have "liftoff". Highly recommend Liquid Web / Nexcess for your hosting needs. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR :)

Nexcess is awesome!Working with Nexcess has been excellent. If ever there is a problem, support is readily available and very knowledgeable. I've not run into any situation yet that they have not been of great assistance. We have switched from Magento to WordPress with no issues.

Expert migrations, always free

Request a migration

Many web hosts offer a free website migration, but few offer free migrations that are done for you. Almost none offer free migrations for multiple sites.

When you migrate to Nexcess, our experts handle every detail, no matter the size or complexity, to make the process simple.

What makes Nexcess different?

Full-spectrum support

Expect an unmatched depth of application and technical expertise for the life of your service. Call, email, or chat with real humans 24/7/365.

Optimized for PHP

Every imaginable setup

Host your way with cloud, dedicated, bare metal, cluster, and hybrid environments tailored to your requirements

Enterprise-class security

Save and scale

Worry less about usage. Our free monthly autoscaling keeps resources lean so you can continue to invest in your business.

30-day money-back guarantee

We may not be your goldilocks host. And that’s okay! Our guarantee keeps money in your pocket as you continue your search.

True expert support at no cost

All hosts offer support, but not all support teams are experts. A select few offer expert support, but it comes at a monthly cost with strict limitations.

Know the costs of changing hosts

Request a buyout

Many hosts offer bottom-of-the-barrel prices when you migrate to their platform. But if you’re already on contract with another host, you’ll be paying two bills instead of one.

Nexcess buys out the remaining costs on your hosting contract up to $1,000 and puts it toward your hosting. That means you can save money while improving your site’s performance.
