Compared to a shared hosting company you have to pay more. But therefore you get a better WordPress service and some hosters even guarantee that your website won't get hacked.

Updates are important to guarantee you best security and high performance. On the other hand you must always check if templates and plugins still work fine after the update. The testing will be in your own responsibilty.
- WordPress Only
It's not possible to run anything else, but WordPress on the hosting environment. Even when you have fallen in love with the hosting company, you couldn't switch to any other CMS than WordPress.
- Service hours
You get an excellent service, but you have to consider the time shift if you are not from the USA. Though the average E-Mail response time is very good, not every provider offers telephone support.
