WordPress Optimized Infrastructure
With more than 10 years of WordPress development and hosting experience, Valice has evolved and modernized our infrastructure to focus on providing our customers with a better WordPress website. The focus of the environment is based on three core elements: Speed and Performance, Security and Availability, and Site Owner Support.
Security & Availability
The WordPress-only environment allows us to leverage security features across the entire environment, rather than at the site level to address known WordPress threats and attackers. Additionally, each site is equipped with the ValiceWP plugin for site-level security features. Our WordPress installation package is a hardened version of WordPress and meets WordPress recommendation for best-practices in security. We layer these features with ongoing monitoring and alerts and we often detect and block suspicious traffic before it is able to cause your website harm. In the event that something does go wrong, we can restore your site from a variety of backup points.
Access to New and Updated Functionality
From basic to complex — we leverage plugin functionality that has been developed and maintained for thousands of websites and make them available as turn-key implementations on Valice websites. Premium plugin licenses are covered as part of your subscription — saving you hundreds of dollars on this premium functionality.
Our website framework includes basic on-page optimization tools for content and meta. Websites are also equipped with support for microdata and schema.org markup which tells search engines which content is important on your website. If you have a handle on SEO and need premium management tools to take it to the next level — add our SEO-Ready pack.
Speed & Performance
We’ve spent time test driving and exploring new technologies and methodologies to create a hosting environment that is both lightweight and powerful just like a good WordPress website. Your service includes WordPress-specific caching mechanisms, Nginx file serving, MariaDB database and container-based virtualization for easy scaling and load balancing. By focusing only on WordPress websites, we’re able to free the environment from unnecessary software and packages that add complexity to the environment as a whole.
