TL; DR: Nestify, a Texas-based company specializing in managed WordPress, WooCommerce, and agency-specific hosting, welcomes businesses with a relatable, developer-to-developer approach to support. The company’s flexible catalog of high-performance hosting solutions helps customers improve digital outcomes and reach wider online audiences. With a focus on incorporating customer feedback into future developments and innovative products on the way, Nestify aims to fuel business success.
Ospreys, fish-eating hawks found on every continent except Antarctica, are fierce defenders of their nests. Mother birds incubate their eggs for approximately a month while father birds drive intruders away from nest sites. Once hatched, young Ospreys remain in their nests until they are juveniles to ensure they’re nourished and safe from predators.
Much like Ospreys, managed hosting providers swoop in to provide businesses the resources they need to grow and thrive in an online environment that is secure by design.
Take aptly-named Nestify, for example. Vishal Deshpande, Co-Founder of the company, told us that Nestify considers its customers part of a communal flock. “Nestify is a family, a nest,” he said. “Once you’re in the nest, you don’t have to worry because you feel safe and secure.”
The company aims to make its customers feel right at home with the Nestify team through a flexible, customer-first approach encouraging growth and success. Vishal told us Nestify strives to respond with “Let’s do it!” rather than “We don’t support that!” whenever possible.
“You’ll see managed WordPress hosting plans out there that don’t allow certain types of security plugins, don’t allow caching plugins, and don’t allow backup plugins,” he said. “At Nestify, we don’t do that.”
Instead, the company offers a flexible catalog of managed hosting options backed by a relatable, developer-to-developer support approach. Built from the ground up to ensure security, scalability, and performance, the company’s managed WooCommerce, WordPress, and agency-specific packages help customers improve digital outcomes and reach wider online audiences.
Through an innovative team of WordPress contributors, cloud experts, and performance engineers, Nestify is well-equipped to build blazing-fast, secure hosting solutions businesses need to soar to new heights.
An Intuitive Interface and Flexible Catalog of Hosting Options
Vishal and Co-Founder Rahul Nagare’s decade of experience building hosting infrastructure for Fortune 500 and Inc. 5000 companies equipped the pair with a deep understanding of performance and uptime engineering. In 2014, Vishal and Rahul used that experience to begin building custom solutions for customers.
By December 2016, the duo was prepared to officially incorporate Nestify and release their managed hosting platform to market. The platform, designed with performance, security, and scalability in mind, doesn’t rely on third-party hosting software, which gives Nestify the freedom to build custom solutions as needed.
Nestify’s goal is to bear responsibility for the technical burdens, allowing businesses to focus on their core competencies. To do so, the company offers automatic daily backups in three locations with one-click restorations, proactively manages security audits and compliance regulations, and provides advanced DDoS and malware production — all backed by 24/7 support from a team of experts.
“The beauty of our managed website hosting and control panel is our ability to automate repetitive tasks,” Vishal said. “If you want a private backup online, you go to the dashboard and click on the backup generation option. We automate basic day-to-day activities, so you don’t have to rely on support staff.”
If the words of happy customers are any indication, this method seems to be working well.
“Managing my site through their dashboard is incredibly easy,” said customer Deanna Fenton in a testimonial on the Nestify site. “I have access to automated backups and can create an on-demand backup with a single click. The included SSL certificate means that my site is secured and won’t be marked as an unencrypted website by Google.”
Managed WooCommerce, WordPress, and Agency-Specific Packages
After three years on the market, there have been a few challenges Nestify has had to overcome to stay competitive in the hosting space. “It’s difficult to convince the traditional user of the value of properly managed hosting services for your website,” Vishal said.
One benefit to ecommerce sites, for example, is better conversion rates. Nestify’s intelligent automation platform, backed by a 99.99% uptime guarantee, optimizes site performance across all devices. Each Managed WooCommerce Hosting plan is built for security, high-performance, faster site-loading, and speedy transactions, which translate to higher revenue, better SEO performance, and increased ROI.
Nestify’s fast and secure Managed WordPress Hosting, optimized for the popular CMS, are intended to simplify technical issues on an ongoing basis through automatic backups, upgrades, cache configurations, malware checking, and technical support from WordPress experts.
“We have moved our WordPress sites so many times to different hosts that claimed they knew WordPress,” said Paul Pollard-Fraser of Deva Blinds in a testimonial on the Nestify site. “They all didn’t, and we had many problems, downtime, and even a complete loss of data. I am extremely happy with Nestify, and I recommend them to many people. There’s virtually no downtime and excellent response times from people that understand WordPress.”
Finally, Nestify’s agency-specific hosting plans allow the company to serve as a partner to your agency so you can host and maintain client sites without worrying about server management. What’s more, all plans include free migrations with zero downtime.
A Relatable, Developer-to-Developer Approach to Support
Vishal told us Nestify’s 25-person support team is backed by years of industry experience spent contributing to WordPress, providing onboarding assistance, handling migrations, and resolving ongoing issues.
The team’s high level of knowledge and state-of-the-art automation tools allow the company to resolve a whopping 90% of support requests within 10 short minutes. “Our support staff is comprised purely of engineers,” he said. “For customers, that’s the cherry on top.”
The Nestify crew’s background in development also equips them with a deep understanding of the pain points their developer clients face. Vishal said it’s rare — but also extremely valuable — for hosting companies to interact with and support developers to sort out issues in such a way.
“We work hand-in-hand with all customers — even if you’re a developer who can’t figure out the problem behind the code or why a server is lagging,” he said. “We personally interact with each customer and their developers to solve problems — even if it is not in our service agreement.”
In addition to in-person support and live chat, Nestify offers a robust knowledge base with in-depth information on a range of topics, including advanced customizations, backups, account management, access, and compatibility.

Continuous Product Development Based on Customer Feedback
According to Vishal, Nestify bases its product development process on industry best practices and customer requests. In fact, the company Has recently updated its dashboards based on customer feedback. “We wanted to make sure our dashboards are as easy to use as possible, Vishal said. “This is just one of the ways we’re working to ensure customer satisfaction.”
Nestify’s new dashboard is powered by the Google Cloud Platform and features include:
- New and improved intuitive tools
- White label agency dashboard
- WHMCS integration
- High-security network
- DDoS detection
- Improved hardware firewalls
- Uptime monitoring
- SSL support
Nestify also has plans in the works for an enterprise-level clustering solution intended to optimize software and hardware so users can prepare for traffic spikes. “Typically, if you want to add a cluster you have to contact the system manager and the service provider,” Vishal said. “We combined the hardware vendors and our software platform on one button so you can create a cluster on the fly without having to contact anyone.”
The solution is just one more way the company is helping businesses find the tools they need to soar higher — all without having to leave the nest.
