    Super-fast WordPress optimised hosting

    We provide super-fast WordPress optimised hosting from our London data centre for all our clients’ websites, which means our load times are second to none. We host our websites across three data centres to continuously synchronize all data, meaning that in the (highly unlikely) situation of one server going down, neither you or your users will notice. Of course, this also means sites can handle triple the amount of traffic!

    All websites need maintaining post-launch and we have a proactive service that enables you to get the best from your website. Apart from the essential work, such as keeping your themes and plugins updated, we carry out further testing, tweaking and iterations to your WordPress website to ensure that its performance continues to improve. What’s more, we make sure that it’s fully backed-up by carrying out both physical and automated checkups.
