Let's have a chat

By entering your email, you agree to receive Happy Camper emails, including marketing emails, and agree to our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.


We discovered that other web hosting companies provided SOME of the features you need for reliable, fast and safe web hosting but none of them had ALL of those features in one package.

You either have to pay more for those features or they don’t exist at all.

They leave out features like Smart Update which uses Artificial Intelligence to determine if that latest plugin update will break your site!

You have to update plugins/themes/WordPress regularly or you run the risk of getting hacked.

Or they leave out offsite backups. We do nightly backups of everything but you should have your own set of backups saved in a simple easy to access offsite location like DropBox, Google Drive or Microsoft One.

We give you that option.

Or they only have minimal security and you have to get a security plugin.  These days you can’t skimp on security that’s why we have Robust Server Level Security.

Server level security is where you don’t need a plugin for security and where you’re not left scouring the internet trying to decide which is the best security plugin? And then how to set it up.

Keeping your site safe, secure and fast shouldn’t be hard.

Love it or hate it?

Smart Updates

Smart Updates helps you keep your production websites up to date without the risk of breaking your website. Smart Updates analyzes the potential consequences of installing updates and advises you whether doing so is safe.


To ensure a WordPress installation is always updated safely without breaking your website, we’ve included Smart Updates with every website, which does the following:

  • Clones the installation, and then analyzes the clone and takes screenshots of the website’s pages (including dynamic content and carousels).
  • Updates the clone, analyzes it again, and then takes screenshots of the website’s pages again.
  • Detects issues (PHP issues, HTTP response code errors, changed page titles, and others): not only those the update can cause but also those that existed before the update.
  • With manual updates, Smart Updates shows you “before” and “after” screenshots and then you decide whether it is safe to update or not.
  • With autoupdates, Smart Updates automatically updates the production website unless there is at least one issue caused by the update. Otherwise the update is not performed and you receive an email with the results of analysis and the “before” and “after” screenshots.
