ZippyKid announced they have entered into the Cloud Tools Program with Rackspace® Hosting, (NYSE: RAX), the leading specialist in the hosting and cloud computing industry. ZippyKid provides a premium WordPress hosting solution for a-list bloggers, small businesses and web shops that want to focus on their content, instead of their content management system.

ZippyKid’s servers are hosted on Rackspace Cloud Servers to help ensure speed, security, and scalability that is superior to other providers. Average page load time, a key factor in a customer’s decision to purchase (and lately, Google search engine positions) is improved 3X when people switch their web sites to the ZippyKid platform.

ZippyKid differentiates itself from other WordPress hosting providers in two ways. First, their pricing model is based completely on how much traffic you get. The customer doesn’t need to worry about overages or those pesky “out of quota” messages from their host.

The second way is by pre-configuring WordPress out of the box with the proper security settings, SEO plugins and page load time optimizations; the customer really only has to worry about adding the content – not configuring everything under the sun. According to ZippyKid, no other hosting providers who offer one-click installs have everything pre-configured for optimal performance out of the box.

WordPress hosting plans range between $20/month to $100/month for different levels of traffic. Custom plans are available as well. All plans come with a world wide content delivery network, pre-configured and enabled, utilizing Rackspace Cloud Files with Akamai, or NetDNA. Existing Rackspace customers can get a special 60-day trial by going to zippykid.com/rackspace.

“Rackspace is excited to have ZippyKid’s managed WordPress hosting solution built on top of the Rackspace Cloud,” said Nishan Sivathasan, director of corporate development for Rackspace. “With the combination of ZippyKid and Rackspace Cloud Servers, companies can focus on developing the content for their web sites while leveraging the deployment and hosting expertise of ZippyKid and Rackspace.”
