What’s the catch?
WP Cobra is in the business of rapidly deploying and hosting WordPress websites for people who know how to use and manage WordPress, or those who are discovering how easy it is to use and manage WordPress.
If you’ve never used WordPress before then WP Cobra is 99% not for you.
How can WP Cobra do all this so fast and cheap?

Which premium theme is installed? And is it licensed?
WP Cobra installs a fully licensed Divi theme by Elegant Themes. The Divi license remains fully licensed so long as your site is hosted on WP Cobra’s Managed WordPress Hosting.
The team behind WP Cobra has used almost every major premium theme on client websites since 2007 including the entire StudioPress Genesis theme set, the entire WPMUDEV theme set, The entire X-Themes set of themes, every Elegant Themes theme, Avada, and too many others to name here.
While Avada and some of the others are superb, WP Cobra discovered through hundreds of client websites that the Elegant Themes Divi theme framework is the most flexible theme for developers, designers, and end-users. Very few themes can do pieces of what Divi does and allows you to do with Divi.
When Divi is on your site anyone from the Secretary to the CEO can manage the website.
The professional team at Elegant themes improves Divi at a breakneck pace, rolling out new releases and improvements almost every week.

Which free plugins are installed? And are they reliable?
WP Cobra installs a set of tested and proven reliable plugins which allow each website to integrate with Google Analytics, Search Console, and ReCaptcha, as well as the Yoast SEO plugin, and other plugins which most WordPress websites should be using for optimization. The plugins installed are the plugins the WP Cbra team developers use on client websites.
Many people are misinformed and believe too many plugins is bad on a WordPress website. While we adhere to the less is more philosophy with WordPress plugins we also nkow that this general statement is gross misinformation. We’ve managed very fast and reliable WordPress websites getting 20 million hits a month with over 50 WordPress plugins on them! The truth is that ONE BAD WordPress plugin is the problem–not too many plugins.
We don’t use bad plugins (plugins that are poorly developed).
YOUR WEBSITE AND WEB SERVER
WP Cobra installs WordPress on NGINX — the world’s fastest web server.
And you get way more PHP Workers per website than you’ll get anywhere else at this hosting price.
Your new WordPress website gets 10 PHP workers dedicated to it. Most other hosting only allows two PHP Workers per website. Why is that important?
Each website process requires a PHP worker.
Ever had your site go blank or show an error screen? That’s due to server timeouts from not enough PHP workers.
Ask your current host how many PHP workers are dedicated to your site — actually DEDICATED to YOUR website.
Hint: You won’t’ be happy, even if you can get a straight answer.
You’re going to discover that all the big brand-name hosts (Blue Dream Daddy Gators and friends) you see advertised everywhere and promoted by big brand-name people (getting paid big brand-name bucks) are in the “Gym Membership” business where they oversell server space.
WP Cobra doesn’t do that. We use Managed WordPress Hosting so you can run almost any kind of WordPress site.
What Kind of WordPress Sites?
Print On Demand Sites
Onetime Payment Sites
Subscription Payment Sites
LMS Learning Management Sites
MANAGED WORDPRESS HOSTING
Managed WordPress Hosting begins on NGINX servers optimized specifically for WordPress using the latest versions of PHP and MySQL for security and performance.
This means faster e-commerce stores, membership websites, WordPress SAAS sites, learning membership sites, blogs, and business sites.
NO PAGEVIEW OR TRAFFIC LIMITS
Believe it or not, rather than charging you extra for more traffic, some of the big brand-name hosts literally THROTTLE your server when you get too many connections! They make things worse for your visitors.
WP Cobra will not charge you fees for overages or pageview counts.
WP Cobra backs up your website every day and stores your backup offsite for one month. You read that right, thrity days of daily backups. Want to restore or download them? Just email us and we’ll take care of it for you.
The Google Gods look at secured sites more favorably for SEO. While they’re allowed to take data from all of us they don’t want the hacker in the cafe across the room getting information from your website visitors.
Your WP Cobra WordPress website comes with an SSL certificate so your visitors to your site know their data is safe.
SETTINGS AND FEATURES
When you visit your new WP Cobra WordPress website you’ll see the home page is set, your menu is ready with all pages linked, comments are blocked to minimize spam, your contact form is ready to go and will send emails to your admin email address.

HOW DID WP COBRA START?
I created WP Cobra because I needed it
I discovered I saved time and money as soon as I had a wireframe ready to go. Because then I can get on with the site-building for clients.
Whether you need your site live in three months or tomorrow, having a WordPress website ready to go faster will help you. But WP Cobra is not just a WordPress site. There are millions of those.
WP Cobra is built on the WordPress CMS platform as a cornerstone framework for building the rest of the site. WP Cobra sites start there and add one of the most flexible, and absolutely the most constantly improving, premium paid theme I’ve ever used Divi by ElegantThemes. And every WP Cobra site gets a fully licensed Divi theme.
After the critical theme is installed, next you need good plugins. Not just good because they do things, but good because they do things AND they’re reliable. If you’ve managed WordPress sites for any length of time you know that poorly developed plugins (no matter how good they are at what they do)–poorly developed plugins can bring a site down during updates. And if you’re keeping on top of things you’re updating your WordPress site once to three times a week. WP Cobra WordPress sites come pre-installed with the plugins I rely on for client sites.
No plugin is perfect. Once in awhile one of the very good plugins I rely on breaks things. So that’s why I rely on daily backups (I also pay extra and use hourly backups while I’m working on a site). WP Cobra backs up your site and also offers a reliable plugin which lets you choose where you want to have your own backups go (Google Drive, DropBox, etc).
Okay, your site is up, themed, plugged-in, but is it secure? WP Cobra WordPress websites come with the premium, iThemes Security Pro plugin installed. Nothing is 100% secure. But I rely on iThemes Security Pro to get me as close to that as possible.
Lastly, if you want your WP Cobra wireframe website to have real for real, very pro looking designs, and you only need to pour in the words, WP Cobra has you covered. And your site can be fully designed in half of a day.
Once you’ve purchased your WP Cobra Wireframe site we’ll give you access to over 900 premium designs for your site and pages. These are not the BS templates you see here and there. In fact, 90% of the websites I’ve built the last five or so years literally began as one of these pro designs! Then clients pay me to take the deigns where they want them to go. But the very cool thing is you can use these designs and images as is and you’ll be proud of your site when you start getting compliments on the design–no kidding.
Can I signup for WP Cobra and migrate my existing WordPress website over the one WP Cobra sets up?
Yes, you can pay for a WP Cobra website and hosting, and then migrate your existing WordPress website over the installation WP Cobra creates for you. But there are some things you need to know.
WP Cobra is not in the Support business.
WP Cobra is not in the Migration business.
If you migrate in or out of a WP Cobra website WP Cobra is not responsible for the website.
If you migrate over the WP Cobra website we cannot guarantee anything about your migration of your website.
If you migrate over the WP Cobra website WP Cobra will not be responsible for your website or anything related to it.
WP Cobra recommends that you use the WP Cobra installed WordPress website as-is and only migrate content into it.
