When it comes to the performance of your site, every hosting provider claims to have the fastest hosting. But what does that mean? There are different attributes that contribute to great site performance. Smart buyers pay attention to all of them. And whenever possible, refer to 3rd party performance benchmarks like Review Signal’s WordPress Hosting Performance Benchmarks.
Page Load Speed
An important factor for a few reasons. Search engines consider page load times as a factor in determining page rank, and even small increases in speed have been shown to decrease bounce rates and increase visitor engagement. For every 1 additional second it takes for a website to load, site owners experience a 7% decrease in conversion. If we migrate your slow loading site that is hosted on a $10/mos. web hosting server into our WordPress web hosting platform, just think of the increase in conversions you have waiting for you.
As a business owner, you don’t think twice about paying $150 a month for quality smartphone coverage. Why wouldn’t you do the same thing for the website that powers your business?
Be Impervious to Website Attacks
If you never want to be hacked, Bash Foo WordPress web hosting with Pantheon is the platform of choice. We make continuous platform-wide upgrades so you don’t need to ask a developer about Heartbleed, Internet Doomsday, or other risks.
Our web hosting services also enable your developers to quickly update your site in one click. No site that follows security best practices on our Pantheon platform has ever been hacked, despite millions of attempts across tens of thousands of sites.
The End of Cowboy Coding
Does your freelance web designer edit your website in real-time on your live, production web server? If so, you probably have a cowboy coder on your hands. And you probably have a situation where if that developer makes a coding mistake, your website that is seen by hundreds/thousands/millions each day is either down for maintenance or is “janked up” as they are making changes to your site on the fly.
Not so with Bash Foo hosting on the Pantheon platform. You’ll have our developers working in a Dev environment, you can observe and approve what it looks like in the Test environment, and then when you give us the green light, we promote all your changes right into the Live production instance of your site.
