WordPress and Jelastic: The Perfect Combination

Writing blogs may be fun, but maintaining and hosting them can get complicated over time. However, if you use the right combination of plugins and services, this process can become much simpler—especially when you use WordPress with Jelastic and Litespeed on Hidora. In fact, these two services are so powerful together that it’s hard to imagine running WordPress on any other cloud platform! Here’s why!

1) Scalability

If you’re looking to set up a highly scalable site, which is essentially one that can handle a lot of traffic and has plenty of headroom for growth, WordPress is one of your best options. In fact, out of all content management systems (CMS) that power websites across the globe, WordPress ranks #1 in terms of popularity. This robust platform has been powering sites for more than 15 years and continues to increase its lead. Why? Because it scales. Unlike competing solutions, WordPress scales both horizontally as well as vertically on Hidora Platform. That means you’ll always have access to increased resources when they’re needed while still having total control over how many resources are available. With scaling groups that increase web servers automatically or add additional storage space with a few clicks, adding capacity will never be an issue again. You simply tell Hidora what infrastructure and resources are required by selecting from templates we offer and let us do the rest. We make sure your website remains functional at all times – even during periods of heavy load when other hosting companies may come down with slow performance or outage problems! Did we mention LiteSpeed? Oh yes…that too!

2) Speed

With LiteSpeed hosting, your website can load up to six times faster than with standard shared hosting. How? With more bandwidth and increased CPU performance. You’ll also benefit from exclusive LiteSpeed caching, which can boost your site’s speed by as much as 40%. It all comes down to better hardware in a dedicated environment – what we call true bare-metal servers. As a result, you get greater computing power that lets you scale seamlessly as needed so you can accommodate an influx of traffic – whether it be during a sale or peak holiday season. This is especially critical for ecommerce sites, where sales often peak around holidays such as Thanksgiving and Black Friday . Last year alone on Cyber Monday online sales skyrocketed 29%! While other providers are planning around those outlier peaks in demand, at Jelastic we have already seen them coming months ahead of time because of our unique platform for hosting that enables scalability without requiring technical expertise.

3) Cost Effective

WordPress is highly scalable, so there’s no need to invest in expensive dedicated hardware. With WordPress and Jelastic, you can scale up or down within minutes at a fraction of the cost. You don’t have to worry about exceeding your budget; with LiteSpeed PHP-FPM servers, you’ll get full performance with only what you need. But one of our favorite parts of WordPress on Jelastic is that you can spin up multiple instances of it at any time—and move them around effortlessly. This means you can build for your customers, regardless of where they are—without having to worry about physical location limitations or going over budget.
