Exploring Pagely and Amazon EC2

The Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) web service is the feature staple that powers all of Pagely’s web hosting plan options. Known for its robust framework around security and ability to meet aggressive scaling demands, it’s become a popular product and go-to for many under the AWS + WordPress umbrella, and the preferred choice for empowering Pagely customers.


What exactly makes Amazon EC2 so special?


With near-instant obtainment, Amazon enables us to quickly and efficiently spin up brand new virtual instances dedicated purely to your websites, which is how WordPress likes to live and be hosted.

And since you only pay for what you use, you can just as easily spin down an EC2, so we can avoid locking you into any long-term contract commitments (it’s also not akin to our values).


Fueling WordPress at remarkable scale


Practically limitless flexibility is another core, innate feature of EC2. Business needs will almost always fluctuate, sometimes at an unpredictable pace and time. Amazon’s elite product allows us to quickly resize and reboot with the right level of resources available to you fast, efficiently and dependably. We use this power to proactively adjust to your demands at a reasonable rate.


Start reaping the benefits


Ultimately, gaining access to the vast ecosystem of AWS is an immense benefit that originally won us over when we first started to analyze what the ideal building blocks would be for serving our customers. With all of Amazon’s various technologies and tools, it gives the perfect opportunity and freedom to evolve your WordPress-powered applications. Backed by our proven guidance, abilities and support, we can keep your blog, e-commerce store, or publishing site fast, secure and healthy.
