Performance is not a feature, it’s an absolute requirement.


WordPress Recommends PHP7

The scripting language that powers your WordPress website — Standard on all plans. Benchmarks conclude that the latest PHP7 performs much better than its predecessor PHP5. Sadly, many web hosting providers still prefer to remain in the Dark Ages.

Your website will absolutely fly with all the speed enhancements that the latest version of PHP offers.


Lightning Quick HTTP/2

We embrace and offer full HTTP/2 support - All for a much faster website browsing experience. HTTP/2 has many features including full binary transfer, multiplexing, concurrency, and header compression.


Free Secure HTTPS with Let’s Encrypt SSL

Serve your WordPress site with the secure HTTPS protocol.

Our web servers interact with the Let’s Encrypt service to obtain certificates, and will automatically take care of renewal too.

Visitors to your website will see the padlock symbol in their browser. Google will favour you as HTTPS is a ranking signal.

Let’s Encrypt is a trademark of the Internet Security Research Group. All rights reserved.

Unparalleled Enterprise Grade Storage

We have a very fast file storage system for quicker read, write and execution.

You get incredible SSD performance with mission-critical data integrity.


Next Generation Server Compression With Brotli

Brotli is a new open source compression algorithm designed to enable an Internet that's faster for users.

Tests show that it has 20%-26% better compression than existing compression algorithms (such as GZIP). Modern browsers — Android Browser, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and Microsoft Edge already support Brotli.

Serve your website quicker to your users without having to do anything extra to your website.


Dedicated MySQL

Ultra-fast database backend to compliment your WordPress website.

We keep databases separate from your website on a dedicated system for serving faster database queries with latency in the single digits.

This means queries are faster and more responsive, resulting in more speedier page generation and increased visitor satisfaction.


Intelligent caching

Serve frequently-accessed content faster with our proprietary Fireball caching system.

Caching aims to eliminate the unnecessary use of server resources for often-requested content resulting in quicker access and completion of tasks.

We do things quite different around here


Unique Account Isolation

This is not shared hosting.

We take advantage of virtualization to keep your site inside its own little box. This means all accounts are truely isolated from each other.


No Control Panel

Everything you need with regards to server configuration, security certificates, domains and aliases is done for you. Our server and network configurations are our own.

This affords us the ability to provide cutting edge technology and custom solutions. This means we do not use cPanel, Plesk, or any turnkey web hosting software.

Backed by years and years of experience


Heroic Customer Support

We have over 20 years of web hosting experience, and 9+ years WordPress development experience. We know our service upside down, inside out and are ready, willing and able to provide you with a level of support which is second to none.
