Colton’s background as a full-stack developer gave him the idea to combine performance hosting with optimization techniques to create a remarkable hosting platform.
Taylor comes in as the Chief Operations Officer with a background as a full-stack developer with an insanely large grasp on virtually every coding language including PHP, React, Swift, Python, C#, C++, Ruby, you name it.
Austin leads the process on the optimization side of our hosting service – as a WordPress developer since it’s inception in 2003, Austin has seen it all, knowing the ins and outs of the WP core framework and how to tweak it for speed.
Our team is comprised of dozens of members across the globe that provide customer support, WordPress expertise & more. Every team member has experience not only developing in WordPress but designing, hosting & providing IT Support for a variety of CMS platforms.
Why would you choose WPBeam over a hosting platform like GoDaddy, Bluehost, etc.? Well, one advantage is that we’re smaller and more nimble. Since we sell ourselves as the speed experts, we think load times and up-times are paramount.
Our team is stacked with WordPress masters – we only recruit and hire the best talent we can find. It’s an absolute minimum requirement to have 10 years of development practice within the WP framework to work at WPBeam, no exceptions.
Speed is king here. We conducted a study to compare raw load times with that of other industry leaders – we blew them out of the water. Our speed index was the fastest among all tested and on average over 2-3X faster than the competition. You can see the results below.
The costs of losing customers, hiring developers to fix issues, sitting on support chat with non-technicals, etc. is much higher than that of a hosting slot at WPBeam. We cater to a group of clients that wants to “set it and forget it”. Let us work on optimizing your site – while you focus on your business. Most hosting services are just that, a hosting slot on a server. WPBeam, on the other hand, is directly involved with optimizing your specific site.
We’ll be the first to say, we’re not for everyone. We limit what you can and can’t do with our interface – and that’s on purpose. We don’t provide full access to your environment because we are a fully-managed service and take great care in hand-crafting each environment setup for speed. More of a DIY individual? No problem! We encourage those interested to run their own server and optimize settings down the greatest detail – that’s a viable option for many.
But for those that don’t want to deal with the headache – we’re here to do it for you!
We ran a test on various competitor hosting plans using the exact same demo site – here are the results in Speed Index (as scored by Google PageSpeed – U.S.). Speed test conducted in June 2022.
In this experiment, WPBeam showed speed performance nearly doubling the closest competitor and on average over 2-3X faster than the competition.
