Over time, we discovered that The Best Website is not out of financial reach: the best and fastest servers (VPS), the best platform (WordPress), the best framework (Genesis), the best CDN (Cloudflare), the best premium plugins and the best maintenance and support. If you were to acquire these things individually, your site would easily run you $1200+ a year. Because our clients share in the costs, we pass this savings on to you so your annual site runs $300+ a year, depending on the plan you need.
We host our client sites on an OpenVZ VPS server. VPS is the fastest server available to small sites. We also add LiteSpeed to enhance the VPS. We provide 1GB of memory for WordPress, 40GB of server storage and 500GB of bandwidth to all our clients.
In addition, all our sites are set up on WordPress-optimized Cloudflare, which provides services such as SSL to encrypt the site, a firewall to prevent bot attacks, analytics, caching, email address obfuscation, image protection, and stores your site file copies on servers all over the world to deliver them quickly to your visitors.
Don’t feel disheartened if you don’t know what all this means. Websites are very complex! and much goes on behind the scenes which you don’t really learn about unless there’s a problem.
