Multisite networks come with a unique set of challenges and obstacles that make scalability and uptime especially critical. If you’re using a shared, cheap, or unreliable hosting provider, the chances that your whole network will go down and become unreachable skyrocket.

The hosting provider you choose also influences how easy it is to set up and manage your WordPress sites. Every day we hear from clients who are curious to learn about what makes Phluit unique and are looking for a reliable, all-in-one solution for their WordPress Multisite setups.

That’s what we’ll answer here. We’ll discuss what distinguishes Phluit from other WordPress hosting providers, and explore the benefits of using Phluit as your Multisite hosting solution.

Multisite is a single WordPress install that acts as multiple separate sites all sharing the same files and database.

No, you will need to be on at least a Pro plan for this.  Multisite CAN be resource-intensive and require additional PHP workers.

Support is available 24/7 for assistance with the site including a Multisite installation.

There is no software limitation to how many sites can be enabled on a Multisite installation. The real bottleneck will eventually become the platform resources (CPU, RAM, PHP Workers, etc).

This all depends on the type of sites. While Multisite does require more PHP workers to run better, the difference in PHP workers needed will be based on how static or dynamic a site is.

It is best to start with a fresh WordPress Install and convert that to WordPress Multisite and then import your current site into that install.  This is due to some of the directory structure and database tables. Converting directly to Multisite COULD cause issues in the future. 

Yes since a multisite install is still a single WordPress install on a container, any unique visits to the site(s) on that container count towards the visits.

No this would be out of the scope of support at Phluit, though our support will be able to point you in the right direction.

Multisite certainly has a time and a place, here are some great examples of when it might be best to use Multisite. Some great examples include schools and universities, landing pages, agencies, and small and medium-sized businesses.

Ecommerce sites, membership sites, forums, discussion boards, blogs with extremely active comment sections, and other types of highly dynamic websites will benefit greatly by using Redis. Redis cache allows for the reuse of cached objects rather than requiring the MySQL database to be queried a second time for the same object.

This reduces the load on a website’s MySQL database, while simultaneously decreasing the response time of the site and increasing the site’s ability to scale and handle additional traffic.

Automatic Backups

External backups can be configured for either a weekly or monthly frequency. You also have a choice between backing up your files only, WordPress database only, or both.

Your ecommerce site is a continuously changing site. Our hourly and 6-hour backup options could be a perfect fit. Rest assured that you can upgrade or downgrade this add-on at any time.

These are additional restore points. When you have the hourly backups add-on enabled, automatic daily backups are still taken and available to restore.
