Qualifying Your WordPress Site for Our Developer Plans

Our Developer options are perfect for lower, modest traffic sites that get small bursts of traffic or have CPU-intensive processes that run infrequently (up to a few times a day in short bursts). WordPress applications that are highly cacheable, like a blog or static marketing site, tend to perform best on these solutions.

Amazon’s Burstable Credit System

Both the Developer 1 & Developer 2 plans are CPU-throttled products utilizing Amazon Web Service’s burst credits under their T-Series line. As your website(s) continue to run on a baseline level of CPU performance, you’ll be accumulating and storing these credits with the ability to burst your CPU usage to weather temporary volumes of traffic spiking you might see.

The primary driver behind the Developer options is the more inclusive introductory price to utilize Pagely’s esteemed service. Dedicated AWS resources uninhibited by page view limits is just one advantage of the total experience the Pagely platform offers. Customers will have access to the most experienced team of engineers, our white-glove approach and best practices, complimented by premier technology packaged specially for WordPress.

Dedicated Staging & Development

Another great use case for our Developer plans is allocating your staging installations to live in a dedicated environment exclusively for your development needs. Deploying each of your staging installs independently onto its own VPS gives you separate resources to use for each staging site (and less strain on your production server).

For higher critical production-ready apps, we typically recommend the Performance plan for the highest base level of speed and stability.

Using Your Pagely Atomic Tools

We always strive to lend our customers the right tools and insights in order to be proactive in avoiding future complications with scaling your traffic. Under the PressFormance tab in your Pagely Atomic dashboard, you’ll find a weekly graph showing your credit availability and how those credits are being utilized by your visitor patterns.

For a deeper understanding of how your website’s holding up on your current plan, our Ops team is only a support ticket away to address your longer term goals for sustaining a healthy website.

Choosing a Plan

If you’re unsure exactly where your traffic and website needs fall, give our sales team a shout and we can help map out your options and recommend a path forward.

Note: In the event you did graduate from the CPU credit system, it’s a quick & easy change in upgrading to our fully-powered production-ready plans.
