Serving one visitor on your WordPress website is easy. But serving thousands at a time requires deep expertise in everything from caching and load balancing, to handling noisy neighbors.
When you sign up for a cloud account with WordPress hosting, you'll get a full-featured, highly optimized, and easily scalable WordPress environment—built on best practices, based on our experience hosting over 100,000 high-traffic WordPress sites.
After the initial setup, you will be responsible for managing WordPress and your cloud infrastructure. Although we do not offer WordPress support, we can manage your cloud infrastructure—just choose a Managed Cloud Service Level when you sign up.
