A speed increase of up to 300% for your WP website.

Dedicated cloud server infrastructure with NGINX (Full SSD)

NGINX is well-known for needing fewer resources to scale at great speeds. The increase in performance means it can handle requests quicker and efficiently distribute static and dynamic resources. We've combined it with a full SSD platform and dedicated cloud infrastructure.

What a cache

WP Pro caches everything, including dynamic content, server-generated HTML and REST APIs thanks to the instant purge capabilities of our state-of-the-art caching technology. Ideal for users looking for high-performance content delivery, which we've combined with CDN caching that reroutes data to the nearest of 40 locations.

Automatic image optimisation

Save on bandwidth and rapidly decrease loading times with automatic image optimisation. The latest technology resizes and transcodes images to match the device dimensions of the end user.

Save time and energy when developing.

Algorithm based updates with Deep Learning and AI

Users are notified of the results of the scans and can rest assured that your website won't go live if the automated regression testing tool determines any issues.

Staging and cloning

We've included a staging environment to help ease the stress of adapting content on a live WordPress site. Create a copy of your website within just a few clicks and when ready, set it free.

Multi WP website management & SEO Toolkit

Running multiple websites can be a time-consuming business. The Multisite Management dashboard takes some of that stress away by grouping together updates and reports for all projects on a particular server.

The built-in SEO Toolkit also makes sure those up-to-date websites are easily found online.
