Our servers are built for speed. We use an accelerated caching layer using nginx, install only super fast SSD drives, and add other optimizations to your server to run WordPress. In addition, when a client first migrates to Agathon, we evaluate their site and offer suggestions for improving performance and security. Some of these optimizations are made at the server level, as discussed above, and some are made directly in the WordPress dashboard. The result of all of this is that many clients do experience increased performance and site speed scores when they move.
For clients who need additional help, we offer a site speed evaluation as well as the installation and configuration of plugins that we know help with site speed (specifically caching, minimization, and image optimization). For sites that need additional work, we offer paid site speed help or can refer you to several optimization experts whom we trust and work closely with.
