After knowing that we or any other WordPress development agency wants to put your enterprise site on WordPress platform then you surely give a think about a lot including are we going to put your site on the wrong platform or we going to burn the investment in thousands of dollars into it and wasting their valuable time into it.
Okay take a seat back and grab your cup of coffee to know the reasons why we choose WordPress for your enterprise site and how do we help you to make it happen in effective way.
WordPress. But, why WordPress?
As of today, WordPress market share is 29% of websites around the World and sooner we’re approaching towards that every 1/3rd of websites will be using WordPress and i guess this will happen just after WordPress 5.0 is released which will happen sometime in first half of 2018. i think i’m predicting more aggressive isn’t it. So overall more than 65% of CMS-driven websites are powered by WordPress and both the stats clearly shouts that WordPress is the preferred choice. To spice it up more as we all know that WordPress is one of the largest open source project which is highly and regularly updated and maintained the platform & it’s infrastructure with the help of large community. As this helps us to scale websites infinitely. Now WordPress has grown into the large ecosystem where users can easily find massive number of themes and plugins and they easily adopts those to their own tastes.
As a WordPress developer we can see that this ecosystem is steadily becoming a solution that demands attention from the large enterprise clients and this will grow and fuel up further. Even the REST API enables developers to programmatically interact with the app in a completely new way. To cut a long story short, WordPress is increasingly an application framework that’s ready for enterprise use.
WordPress was focused on scalability, flexibility, usability in the admin panel, making it super easy for clients to pick up and understand. What WordPress really excelled at for us was being an affordable, excellent platform that didn’t come with all of the mess and complexity of custom CMS and enterprise-built solutions.
Development & Support
To develop an enterprise level site is not an easy game and it’ll be more than tedious task to complete it. For this kind of site we have a team of developers that led by WP Engineer who are keen to dedicate & focus themselves towards research & analysis, lot of planning, architecting your website, then writing a clean, robust & highly maintainable code that matters for enterprise site, doing lot of testing and then super launch of your site…B O O M ! ! !.
We as a developer we just don’t sit in front of our workstation and using our popular IDE like Visual Studio Code and keep on throwing fancy or any kind of code right into the system. No we just don’t do that kind of awful things but we provide neat solution that really matter to you and your brand. We write a super-clean code so that any developer can easily read it and we write a code that scales your website and helps in performance and security. We mean it.
We provide total support for enterprise client using various channel as we them easy to reach us on to resolve their queries and we start it by dedicating a manager for each enterprise client and still they can reach us on Twitter or Facebook or even on Slack or then can raise their issue in our Support Forum and we ensure them that we give super high priority to enterprise client all the time. We don’t want them to keep on shuffling between different support team just for a small issue.
WordPress Hosting Solution for Enterprise Site
So enterprises WordPress site is just not a website like any other website and it’s not just about “set it and forget it”. Enterprise site needs a powerful hosting solution that demands uptime, security, monitoring, backups & restore, updates, stability and more. This is really where we comes into play to pick the most powerful and robust WordPress hosting for your enterprise site and yes we know it’s not gong to be easy for us to pick one. We carefully tailor a hosting setup for each client that involves sometimes dozens of tools working in harmony to create an optimal hosting and maintenance setup for your site.
Here we round up just few options that we highly consider this hosting companies who are really fits to host the enterprise site and they have largely been addressed the early concerns over security and data sovereignty:
1. Microsoft Azure
Microsoft’s Azure platform is really turning the tide in larger enterprises and giving Amazon’s AWS to run for their money as the Azure is just getting better and better and attracting more enterprise clients to use their services. Microsoft shows greater strength equally with developers who target large enterprises, and those who target small to medium businesses. However, setting up WordPress on Azure, making it production ready and scaling up requires technical expertise and can be prohibitively complex which our team of developers will take care of it.
2. Amazon AWS
Yes surely you heard of this company and one of the leading cloud service provider in the World and trust me still AWS is popular amongst the enterprise clients despite of tech stacks. Well again setting up WordPress on Amazon, making it production ready and scaling up requires lot of technical expertise and can be prohibitively complex one especially for enterprise level site and again here my team will do all the lifting for you.
3 WP Engine
For WordPress especially enterprise-level site with good amount of traffic, mission-critical we choose this WP Engine and we believe in them when it comes to WordPress and particularly about the security and it’s performance. WP Engine knows how WordPress works and they have the perfect blend of infrastructure setup for large WordPress sites. Your sites are protected on a dedicated clustered environment with multi-zone high availability and load-balancing technology. Their enterprise plans also include managed onboarding, account service, and the fastest support response from them..
Here with Pagely we simply choose their enterprise WordPress hosting platform which gives a scalable web hosting solution for our enterprise clients with high performance and mission critical security needs. Pagely;s unique managed service features painless resource scaling, multi-region redundancy, and enterprise-grade security.
This is one of the core area where we would like to focus on maintaining an enterprise site and when it comes to the WordPress then it’s a concern. In general the best thing we can do to any WordPress site is to take a backup of it (we can do it manually or we have a lot of plugins to automate our backups) and push the updates to the site. But this is not in the case of enterprise sites as we need to keep an eye open to make sure the site keeps working smoothly as client wants. Conflicts are pretty rare but in an enterprise-context, a key feature failing could mean serious lost revenue or at a minimum a black eye on the brand reputation. We want to always improve your experience working on our WordPress maintenance services so you can mainly focus on your enterprise expansion and your marketing tools and we run the difficult part.
Security & Scalability
More and more large enterprises are adopting WordPress for it’s security as WordPress developers are constantly updating the engine’s code base and applying security patches, as part of routine maintenance. Code review is one of the strongest indicators of a platform’s security. As an open source platform, WordPress is extensively reviewed and security issues are typically discovered very quickly and resolve it even quicker. We are well aware of the security issues that might occur in an enterprise site and we will be prepared for it by adopting the security methodologies to secure your site and our first step of security is by choosing the hosting company to host your site. We carefully choose the hosting setup, so you’ll want to be sure to select a host whose server stack and architecture are designed for WordPress enterprise website hosting.
