Acies Managed WordPress Website Hosting & Security

Acies Communications has been providing world class web hosting to companies from around the world since 1995. Acies uses only top of the line, custom-built servers.

A note from Tim McNitt, owner of Acies Communications:
I have been working with Christine Gustafson (InnLight Marketing) since 2005. I focus on providing secure, fast, and reliable web hosting for small businesses. I have clients all across the U.S. and in many other countries. My company is located in Bellingham, Washington.

Below is a summary of the features of my Managed WordPress Hosting & Security, which includes a comprehensive set of features and allows you full control of your web hosting environment.

  • Carefully managed updates to the WordPress core software, plugins, and themes installed on your website whenever new versions are available.
  • Configuration of a firewall on your website that will automatically lock out any hackers who try to guess your password or otherwise attempt to compromise your website. Your website will be scanned daily for malware or other vulnerabilities.
  • A full backup of your website will automatically be created each night. A copy of the backup is stored on the web server for easy access and restoration through cPanel. Another copy is stored off-site for longer-term retention and disaster recovery.
  • A free SSL/TLS certificate is included with your hosting account, so your website address will begin with https. There are many advantages to https: It protects the integrity of your website and helps prevent intruders from tampering with the communications between your website and your visitors’ browsers. Google includes https in its website ranking algorithms. A very practical security consequence is that your password will be encrypted when you log into WordPress. And of course https is required for an ecommerce website

“Acies has been an integral part in the growth of our business so thanks so much for that!
We SOOOO appreciate having you as our web host!

– Mary Harter, Sea & Adventures / Mar Y Aventuras

“Hello Christine: Just keep feeling so much appreciation for you and now also Tim. I just keep thinking “thanks, thanks, thanks……thanks…” And did I say, “Thanks”? I know from experience with the prior hack at Blue Host what a nightmare this can be. I would still be at Go Daddy paying them and being on “hold” waiting to talk with them over and over only to get at best mediocre service and protection. Tim is great and I feel so lucky that such a wonderful silver lining came out of being hacked at Go Daddy. What started out as a bad thing turned out to lead to a much greater good. What a relief and a blessing to have you and Tim as a team. All blessings to you!” – RG, 2018
