Speed and Performance

The speed of your website is important. A responsive web experience is critical for keeping visitors coming back to your site and achieving higher search engine rankings. The Pressidium® Platform is an enterprise-grade mission critical system which brings the power of webscale technologies (used by Google and Facebook) to WordPress. Built with real-time high-performance clustered environments it allows our customers' sites to serve and expand along with their business’ needs.

Speed and availability are consistently delivered on EVERY plan.

Dynamic Load Balancing

Dynamic & Intelligent Load Balancing of web and network traffic to caching and web application layers is accomplished via our Total Traffic Management solution. This ensures that delivery of your site’s content is accelerated, as each request is intelligently dispatched to the least busy server. If the traffic on your site peaks, our total traffic management solution will evenly distribute load across our server farms eliminating the pitfalls of slashdot effects.

HA SSD Storage

Highly-Available (replicated) web-scale SSD-based file system for parallel access to files from application nodes. The file system automatically replicates content across all servers in a 2+N design and allows simultaneous read & write access to any node. An almost infinite amount of storage nodes allow for capacity expansion and I/O load distribution is supported.

Multilayer Adaptive Caching

We handle caching for the customer at the server level, and we work with our customers to further optimize their sites for best performance. This includes around the clock monitoring, profiling & analyzing performance of their application and database. Our unique multi-tier adaptive caching platform consists of five separate caching mechanisms. These provide caching of content, php objects, php opcode and db query results in RAM (hot dataset) and SSD (less frequently used dataset). These 5 layers combined with the optimal design of hardware and network tiers, accelerate website speed to the fastest it can possibly go. No need to install and configure caching plugins in order to achieve top speeds.


Minimize packet loss and latency by integrating a Content Delivery Network service right into your WordPress site. CDN services place servers around the globe, at the edge, trying to get as close as possible to your visitors. Pressidium® has partnered with top CDN providers that offer best-of-breed content delivery through multiple edge nodes, on every continent and across the globe. Our platform design gives you the ability to integrate with our CDN offering, giving you an easy way to distribute content to your end users with low latency and high data transfer speeds…right from the edge.

PHP optimization

At the root of every WordPress hosting platform, everything comes down to PHP processing. You’ll be glad to know that we have been tweaking PHP optimization techniques over the past 15 years, and based on this extensive experience, we have super-charged Pressidium PHP processing time. Our server-side processing is now hundreds of times faster than standard PHP setups.

SSL Acceleration

We offload SSL transactions at the load-balancing layer. This seriously accelerates traffic towards backend servers as web application farms are no longer burdened with the CPU intensive task of encrypting and decrypting http traffic. The result is that your visitors will have 100% secured & encrypted web browsing while their whole SSL browsing experience is greatly accelerated.
