If you are in search of the most reliable and the fastest WordPress platform, you have come to the right place. Today, we are going to talk about WPForever which is a “Container Based WordPress Platform”.
What is a Container Based Platform?
In a shared hosting or any typical shared platform, the bandwidth and the server resources are shared between different websites. Due to this, heavy load on one or a few websites can significantly degrade your own website’s performance. To get rid of this situation, WPForever has managed to deploy a container based solution that offers you with a consistent performance.
Your website is distributed across multiple containers that delivers a phenomenal performance. Also, if one container goes down, the other containers offer redundancy and your WordPress blog or website is up and running. Even more, an additional container is instantly deployed to take the position of the offline one.
Features of WPForever
1) Speed and Performance
As mentioned earlier, the container based platform offers unmatched speed and performance. WPForever also lets you adapt to the rapidly changing technology with ease. If you want to upgrade any component, you can do so with zero downtime. It offers you the flexibility to provision containers with the tech stack of your choice.
2) High Availability
WPForever offers a load balancer functionality to all the websites. This load balancer distributes load across multiple containers. Due to this, if your site is experiencing heavy load, the workload is automatically replicated to additional containers as and when required.
3) Fast Caching
Now you don’t have to install any third-party cache plugins or software on WordPress. When you are on WPForever, the WordPress front end is delivered through a Varnish Cache and you don’t need any configuration or setup to achieve this.
4) Monitoring Functionality
WPForever offers security scanning, monitoring and protection specifically for WordPress. Also their system keeps monitoring your site for any threats and attacks – even at the application level.
5) Backups and Self-Healing
If you love the Git-Style versioned backups, you are in for a treat. WPForever offers Git-Style versioned backups of your site. These backups are easy to schedule and the restoration is pretty fast. The awesome self-healing capability re-deploys your container instantly if, for any reason you site goes down.
