Advanced Automatic Updates
WordPress Auto Updater vs Managed Hosting (1 post)

    Not exactly a support question, but I am trying to get straight in my mind the differences between using managed hosting (say wp-engine or zippykid.com) vs. using this plugin and some backup software.

    From my perspective, I am thinking the key differences are:

    1. Managed hosting has support, so if it goes wrong, they'll fix it for you
    2. Hacks are their problem, rather than yours

    But from a software point of view, it looks pretty similar. Are there any other considerations to, er, consider?
