WordPress is continually becoming more popular among businesses of all sizes. It makes managing a website easy for even the most inexperienced of individuals while allowing for advanced and interactive features to be implemented using things like plugins and themes.
The problem with WordPress isn't the platform itself; it's the hosting used to support most websites that use it. Traditional environments just aren't built to support growing businesses that use WordPress for their website.
This is where Pagely enters the scene. They are the world's first web host built specifically to provided scalable, managed WordPress hosting for businesses and individuals alike. They utilize Amazon's cloud-based Web Services to support countless websites running WordPress.
Pagely offers three types of hosting plans: Personal/Business, VPS and Enterprise. Each plan is designed to facilitate the needs of different businesses seeking WordPress hosting.
While Pagely does use cloud hosting, these packages can still be likened to the more traditional types of hosting environments. They provide similar amounts of power and resources while offering the incredible flexibility that only cloud hosting can provide.
Let's examine each of Pagely's packages more closely.
This is the most basic of Pagely's hosting packages. It's designed to be used by fairly small businesses or businesses that need to host multiple website with just one hosting account.
These plans include the Business, Professional and Ultimate packages. Resources scale from 10 to 30 GB of hard drive space, 10 to 50 GB of bandwidth, 50 GB to 250 GB of PressCDN transfer and a low to high number of PHP workers.
This makes the Personal/business plans capable of hosting anywhere from 3 to 20 average WordPress websites. You can stretch your hosting plan significantly further if you limit yourself to one or two WordPress websites on the higher tiers of packages.
This makes the Personal/Business tier of plans perfect for small businesses with 1,000 to 20,000 visitors per month.
The VPS hosting plans from Pagely offer much more control than the Personal/business tier of plans. You gain access to a VPS instance, which can be accessed via SSH. You can even deploy your own code using GIT or SVN repositories.
The other unique trait of Pagely's VPS service concerns how they provide your WordPress hosting in software-as-a-service (SaaS) form. This allows Pagely to take care of everything involving kernel and application upgrades while your IT team only needs to manage the individual parts of your WordPress website.
As for the raw statistics of Pagely's VPS packages, these packages include resources in the following amounts: 50 GB of storage, 150 to 500 GB of bandwidth transfer, 750 GB to 3.5 TB of PressCDN and a very high number of PHP worker threads.
This makes Pagely's VPS packages suitable for medium to large businesses with up to 50 sites or several tens of thousands of visitors each month.
The last tier of packages that Pagely offers includes their enterprise hosting plans. The difference with these plans is that they can scale as large as your business needs.
These are the same plans designed to run WordPress blogs from Twitter, Disney, Last.fm, Microsoft and countless other household companies. These are the most robust plans that are tailored to the exact needs of these incredibly large brands.
This means that there is no limit to what Pagely can provide in terms of enterprise solutions, but it also means that there is no public estimate for how much these plans cost. You must contact Pagely to receive an estimate.
If you have an incredibly large business that doesn't need to concern itself with security or IT issues with your website, then this is the hosting plan for you.
