Underneath our platform, there’s a lot of technical stuff happening to keep your WordPress sites fast, secure, and running smoothly. 

We’ve been busy upgrading to the latest technologies to offer enterprise-grade infrastructure to all of our customers. WPhost’s Cloud Platform is now more scalable, more resilient, and faster than ever.

New Zealand and Australian customers will see significant reductions in latency. Our performance testing shows 80-95% reductions in round-trip-time (RTT) latency when serving visitors from New Zealand and Australian cities such as Auckland, Wellington, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

Powered by Google Cloud, our newly architected platform is built with containerised technology. We’ve hand-crafted the architecture so that sites scale and heal as needed, allowing us to offer the best WordPress hosting experience for our customers.

Just a few of the great things about our WordPress hosting

Auto-healing technology

In the event of any service failure, each WordPress site on the WPhost platform will automatically heal itself. For example, if there are issues with PHP, your site won’t go down – it will just fix itself! While we’ve always provided great uptime for your WordPress sites, auto-healing technology improves your site’s resiliency even more.

Instant-scaling technology

WPhost’s Platform has been built to be more scalable, more resilient, and even faster. Experiencing a spike in traffic? Now, with WPhost’s new Cloud Platform, scaling your site to millions of visitors happens instantly. Powered by Google Cloud, sites scale and heal as needed. There’s no need for downtime or migration to new hardware!

Updated caching technology

With WPhost’s new Cloud Platform, your sites will perform even better. Our new caching technology takes into account the most popular WordPress themes and plugins to make sure your pages are cached correctly when they should be and aren’t cached when they shouldn’t be – with no work from you!

PHP 7.4 ready

PHP 7.4 is now standard on all WPhost sites. PHP 7.4 features a number of improvements over PHP 7.3, so many users will see a boost in performance with the upgrade. Plus, it comes along with a big batch of other turbo-charged performance and security improvements that’ll make your site better than ever!

We couldn’t possibly be more thrilled to introduce you to what we think is the best managed WordPress hosting experience in New Zealand.
