To be honest, we didn’t know much about one.com before they acquired WP Media, the company behind WP Rocket and Imagify.
When we first met the one.com team at WordCamp Europe, we discovered that they were willing to become a key player in the WordPress community along with other famous managed hosting providers like GoDaddy, WP Engine or BlueHost.
But is One.com a good fit for you? Let’s find out:

One.com was founded in 2002 by Jacob Jensen in Denmark. It has since grown into one of Europe’s leading web hosts with over 1,500,000 websites hosted in 149 countries.
The company has offices in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, India, Dubai, France, Italy, Netherlands, Philippines, Spain, United Kingdom, and the United States.
In August 2021, they launched a Managed WordPress add-on that gives you access to additional plugins, optimized security, enhanced performance as well as priority support.
The Benefits of Managed WordPress Add-on
With the Managed WordPress Add-on of one.com, you can focus on what you love instead of worrying about WordPress maintenance. It is a good feeling to know that your website is secure and performing as fast as it should. Priority support for WordPress is also included in the add-on whenever you need it.
We have been monitoring one.com uptime and performance for the last 30 days. The uptime rate of One.com was 100% and the average loading time in Europe was 212ms.
One.com is definitely a reliable WordPress-managed hosting provider with a 100% uptime rate.
We used the Twenty Twenty-Two WordPress theme to conduct this test, with the default settings of one.com.
The results are pretty good. The website has a 99/100 PageSpeed score and an average response time of 212,02ms.
Pricing is certainly a big draw since hosting for less than $3,99 per month is hard to beat. Considering the offerings themselves, One.com offers all the essentials, and much more.
The higher plans allow for more installations than the lower plans. With the larger plans, other add-ons are bundled in for all connected domains as well, which makes them particularly interesting for agencies and others managing multiple sites. When used to the fullest extent, the Guru plan offers 10 sites for €0.899 each, including premium add-ons like Marketgoo SEO, SiteLock Find malware scan and backup with 1 click-restoration included.
One.com also offers a staging environment in every plan which is very useful to make sure that changes and updates don’t break your website.
The number of features included in One.com’s plans is impressive.
A clever update manager is also included. It has a visual update tester staging each update before it’s allowed to run. Only updates that don’t cause changes in your site’s appearance are implemented. This is a time-saving feature that will protect your site from code-breaking updates.
You can add plenty on add-on to your websites, but you will have to pay.
Here are the add-ons available:
Daily automatic backups stored in the cloud & much more for $1.99/month with WP UmbrellaTry for free
One.com’s dashboard is very straightforward and you can access all features from it.
The navigation is smooth and you can easily modify the environment and settings in just a few clicks.
You can also access most of the information directly from your website. One.com’s dashboard is not overkill, but it perfectly does the job!
The support is available in several languages and starts with a chatbot. Eventually, you get a real person if you are not able to troubleshoot the issue yourself.
I’ve opened three tickets. I got a real human to talk to within less than two minutes every time. That was really impressive. They always find the solution to my T1 /T2 questions and were kind.
One.com is rated 4.3/5 on G2 and all the reviews are positive. People are saying that one.com is a good hosting provider and nobody regrets the investment.
On Trustpilot, one.com is rated 4.1/5 which is good as well. Most of the people are happy with one.com even though some complain about the marketing strategy of the company.
Overall, one.com is a good managed WordPress hosting provider. It’s reliable (100% uptime rate over 30 days), fast loading, and not expensive for what you get. The support is kind and they answer promptly.
Obviously, other managed WordPress hosting providers like Kinsta or Rocket.net offer slightly better performance but their pricing is 10 times more expensive ($35/month for Kinsta vs $2.99 for one.com).
I’d say that one.com is an excellent choice for most websites, and if you need this tiny performance competitive edge, then you need to pay for it!
