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

Dedicated cloud server infrastrucure 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 optimization

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