  • My site gets a lot of traffic — can WP NET handle it?

    - by GB

    If your site gets a lot of traffic, we recommend our single-tenant WP Server. With WP Server, you have dedicated resources just for your website(s) and improved isolation from other customers.

    Our WP Site and WP Studio hosting is a shared-server platform, especially designed to run WordPress websites. We run a low number of sites per server and we over-spec CPU and RAM resources. While this platform is suitable for most small-to-medium sized sites, for very high-traffic, WooCommerce, LMS, membership and other application-type sites, WP Server is a better choice.

    If you’re not sure about what kind of hosting service you need, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to discuss your requirements.
