Server Speed

Page Load Time and Performance

Google has indicated site speed (and as a result, page speed) is one of the signals used by its algorithm to rank pages.

With WP we utilise a variety of tools in order to speed up your website. No longer will you have to ask why my website is so slow.

See how we can speed up your website with WP Engine.

WP Engine Website Speed Features

Worldwide CDN

Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a service that can help the static content on your site (images, CSS, Javascript) load much more quickly.

A CDN is a collection of servers located all around the world. When a browser loads static content, the request is automatically routed to the server geographically closest to the browser. This helps the content load much more quickly. In addition, because your content is loaded from many servers in separate locations, bursts of traffic are less likely to cause issues, because the burst is spread out over hundreds of servers, rather than just one.

Website Caching

When a request for a page on your site comes in, the page is sent to the server to be “compiled,” or generated based on the code that exists on that page. This in and of itself doesn’t cause much strain for the server, as it’s pretty easy to serve just one page. Now imagine the server is having to build multiple pages per second – suddenly that job becomes much harder!

Caching serves to help out with the heavy lifting the server does by storing a copied “snapshot” of each page request that comes into the server. When a page request comes to the server, it first asks whether the page is in cache. If not, it’s sent to the server to be built and then served, and on its way back it also stores a copy of that page within the caching layer. This way, the next time a request for that page comes in, it can be served from the caching layer, instead of having to be built like new from the server itself.

This lightens the workload of the server, which means it can handle way more traffic at once than it otherwise could. It also speeds up your site, because serving a page from cache is much faster than building it like new every single time. This is the type of caching that our WP Engine Page Cache™ uses to help improve your site’s performance. Read more about this type of caching here.

Website Security

Wordpress SSL Certificates

Security matters. Not only does a secure environment protect you from data loss or embarrassing hacker takeovers, properly secured sites are faster, since bogus traffic and requests aren’t eating up your resources.

The WP Engine platform meets the demanding security requirements of even the world’s largest brands. From physical security at the datacenter to protection against sophisticated exploits and customer separation at the kernel level, we provide a highly-secure WordPress experience to every customer.

WP Engine Security Features

MANAGED PATCHING AND UPDATES

When kept up-to-date, the WordPress core is extremely secure. To ensure that your site is running the most current version of WordPress, we automatically upgrade your installs whenever minor patches are released. When a major update is released, we thoroughly test it before recommending that our customers upgrade. We’ll even work with you directly to make your upgrade as painless as possible.

REAL-TIME SECURITY THREAT DETECTION

WP Engine blocks millions of attacks each day. Not only do we mitigate garden variety DDoS and brute force attacks, but thousands of rule sets specifically tuned for WordPress identify and prevent attacks before they happen. Our proprietary, adaptable intrusion detection and prevention system dynamically detects and blocks malicious behavior such as JavaScript/SQL-injection attacks and even more sophisticated attacks such as XML-RPC attacks. And of course, we block IP addresses identified as belonging to spammers or hackers.

ENTERPRISE-GRADE INFRASTRUCTURE

All of our customers, from mom-and-pop bloggers to Fortune 500 companies, benefit from our highly performance, secure technology stack. Shared plans are separated from other customers at the kernel and filesystem level, and Enterprise plans run in dedicated environments not shared with other WP Engine customers.  Plus, we run a combination of firewalls to protect you from outside attacks, as well as network analysis monitoring tools to guard against any malicious behavior within the network.

A FINELY TUNED TECHNOLOGY STACK

Proper server configuration is vital to securing your web environment. Our software stack includes provisions to ensure optimal WordPress performance, including disk write limitations and protection against scripts known to contain vulnerabilities. We also implement PHP tuning to disallow dangerous or insecure commands.

SECURITY AUDITS AND CODE REVIEWS

We conduct periodic code reviews and security audits of all internal environments and processes. We partner with third-party, independent security firms to ensure best practice security measures are always in place. Plus, we conduct frequent, proactive vulnerability scans and perform penetration testing, and we allow our customers to do the same if they choose.

IF YOU STILL GET HACKED, WE’LL FIX IT FOR FREE

Consultants can charge thousands of rands for emergency unhacking services. Thankfully, you can keep those bucks in the bank. In the unlikely event that your site is compromised, we’ll fix it at no extra cost to you.
