Our Full Technology Stack

Pagely builds upon resources we source from Amazon to deliver to our clients a suite of products and services that are optimized specifically for the demands of WordPress. View

Optimized for WordPress WordPress has a very specific resource footprint and usage pattern. We’ve developed specific technologies and systems to scale and secure your WordPress App.

Introducing the ARES Web Application Gateway

The ARES Gateway enables us to offer a faster and more flexible environment than other competitors. Remote Configuration and Push updates enabled Dynamic SSL and Let’s Encrypt support on top of a host of security, performance, and routing features. Read the White Paper.

Introducing PressDNS

Latency and Geographically targeted routing for your WordPress site.

PressDNS works with our PressCACHE system to route requests, at the DNS level, to any of our global cache nodes (geo-routing). Powered by Amazon’s route 53 service, PressDNS makes it simple to take advantage of geo-balancing and geo-routing.

Introducing PressCACHE

A global network of DNS routed cache nodes explicitly designed to serve WordPress page output. Your site, available instantly, from anywhere.

PressCACHE is a global WordPress acceleration system available for use by our clients. It works much like a CDN, but specifically designed to cache and serve WordPress page output.

Essentially, a request for your website is routed to one of our global PoPs (Point of Presence) closest to the user. This shortens the distance between the user and your website, ergo speeding up the load time of your site to a global audience. PressCACHE is available to all customers using our PressDNS nameservers.

Introducing PressARMOR

A comprehensive security architecture developed by Pagely® that hardens and protects our network, hardware, and WordPress applications. The primary focus is on prevention and the mitigation of risk to clients.

Secure WordPress Hosting is just how we do business. For base-level security, we utilize a dynamic web application firewall (WAF) that blocks code injection attacks, known exploits, and rate limits access attempts. This greatly reduces the chance of a DDoS attack or Brute force attack succeeding.

On top of the above, we also practice chroot user separation and real-time system malware scanning. Scanning for malware means we’re constantly looking for things like trojan horses, viruses, worms, keyloggers, spyware, and adware. Additional rulesets at our network edge filter out much of the nefarious traffic long before it even has a chance to pass into our network.

Pagely has always considered it our mission to assist you in cleaning and restoring a site should it become compromised, free of charge.

Introducing PressThumb

Dynamically scale and serve image assets. Flexible, on-demand image management.

PressThumb is a simple drop-in service that can be enabled on your WordPress site to offload image optimization and thumbnail creation in real-time, saving on bandwidth, storage, and page size.

Introducing PressFORMANCE

Performance monitoring, analytics, and assessments.

PressFORMANCE is a suite of services designed to keep your WordPress site operating in peak condition. Services include periodic site performance audits, testing, analytics tools and reporting. PressFORMANCE has also pursued a career in the media and moonlights as a content brand.
