Ask us about setting up and hosting your WordPress site. The easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (CMS) in existence today.
WordPress powers nearly a quarter of new sites today, is the content management system (CMS) of choice for more than two thirds of the top million sites making it the most popular on the web, and is trusted by content publishers both large and small including CNN and the NY Times. With more than 50 million sites globally and eight years of proven history, you know you’re getting the best software for the job.
At the core of WordPress is a simple interface similar to the desktop publishing software you use today. With no coding experience or expert knowledge necessary, the learning curve is often about as short as typing in your site’s URL and logging in. In fact, most users are able to pick up the basics without any training at all. Interfaces are polished and easy to use, and are the result of years of refinement. It’s the power of Microsoft Word with the intuitiveness of an iPhone. (Source: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Features )
Secure WordPress Hosting on WP Engine
Security matters. Not only does a secure environment protect you from data loss or embarrassing hacker takeovers, properly secured sites are faster, since bogus traffic and requests aren’t eating up your resources. The WP Engine platform meets the demanding security requirements of even the world’s largest brands. From physical security at the datacenter to protection against sophisticated exploits and customer separation at the kernel level, we provide a highly-secure WordPress experience to every customer.
Delight your customers with a site they never have to wait for.
Specifically designed for scalable WordPress hosting, our proprietary front-end is built on thousands of carefully-designed rules that we continually audit and adjust for maximum performance. These rulesets determine how we serve content for fastest load times and which traffic we block for security reasons.
Our caching mechanism also dramatically reduces server load. Instead of serving your static content from the backend, which can be slow, we serve this content from our front-end system, which can handle high levels of concurrent traffic.
Managed patching and updates
When kept up-to-date, the WordPress core is extremely secure. To ensure that your site is running the most current version of WordPress, we automatically upgrade your installs whenever minor patches are released. When a major update is released, we thoroughly test it before recommending that our customers upgrade. We’ll even work with you directly to make your upgrade as painless as possible.
Real-time Security Threat Detection
Instant backup and restore with snapshot backups
If you’ve ever hesitated to change your site out of fear of making a costly mistake, you’ll love snapshot backups. A snapshot is a backup of your WordPress site that takes only seconds to create, so you can easily back up your site before you make any change (for example, updating a plugin). Your snapshots can act as restore points if you want to undo an action, or starting points for a new version of your site if you want to experiment. Each snapshot includes your content, themes, and plugins and is downloadable, so you can back up your WordPress files to a different location.
We take snapshots of your site every day, and always before we make a major update to your site.
One-click restore is just as easy. When you roll back to a previous version of your site, the restored version is usually ready in under a minute.
