Lightning-fast Look-up Speeds and Instant DNS Updates
Before a visitor even loads your site their browser has to receive instructions of where your server is located at, this is called the Domain Name Server, when someone types in the address of your website or clicks a link on a search engine to visit your site we route each of your visitor’s query to the closest available DNS data center to make sure the response is returned in as few milliseconds as possible, speeding your visitors even before they have reach your WordPress application.

With lighter images you will gain in speed, user experience and even in SEO. All images are automatically optimized during upload saving you admin time. It reduces the weight of your images without sacrificing their quality. They will remain beautiful.
Images can account for 50% of your loading time. By compressing them you will quickly gain precious seconds.
Caching is a fundamental factor in determining a site’s overall performance. Especially in WordPress, since it generates HTML pages dynamically – by employing PHP code coupled with MySQL database queries. With properly configured caching protocols your WordPress site can be orders of magnitude faster. It helps prevent redundancy and speeds up load times of your site.
When a visitor to your site visits your WordPress, the server has to process PHP code, the language WordPress is written on, the database has to be accessed to get the content of the page, the media files have to get loaded and then finally the page gets presented to the visitor’s browser. What cacheing does is save this whole process in the server memory so the next time someone visits your site everything will be loaded from memory and the server won’t have to process any of it. This increases loading time immensely, we use an enterprise level implementation of cacheing to make your WordPress site load nearly instantly.
PHP 7 redesigns and heavily optimizes many internal value representations and data structures to reduce memory usage. In PHP 7 data structures such as arrays use up to 3.5 times less memory than in the previous version of PHP. PHP 7 is the fastest server side language available today and we’ll host your site on it by default. This results in lower resource usage and significant speed increases for your website. Coupled with our use of PHP-FPM, NGINX and optimized databases you can be sure your WordPress application will have the most advance hosting architecture.
