In this context, it proves WordPress as the ideal choiceto seamlessly bridge the gap between supply and demand. At the same time, it provides businesses with a stable and versatile platform to operate successfully in the digital environment. Optimizing WordPress hosting is crucial to realize its full potential, and ORC Web Hosting has established itself as one of the leading providers of fast web hosting for WordPress.
In this article, we will take a closer look at the outstanding features of ORC Web Hosting's WordPress hosting in terms of speed, performance and value.
Why is WordPress of great importance?
WordPress plays a central role in the digital world and stands out for its customizability and user-friendly design. Thanks to its SEO-friendliness and customization options, it is the first choice for numerous online businesses. The dedicated community continuously provides improvements and support.
WordPress is the world's preferred content management system (CMS) and is experiencing impressive growth. Every 74 seconds, a new website is created among the top 10 million. This impressive proliferation even surpasses competitors like Shopify, which adds a new site only about every 22 minutes.
The abundance of available plugins and themes greatly expands the flexibility of WordPress. The powerful REST API enables a wide range of integrations and provides developers as well as creatives with the necessary tools to fully realize their creative ideas.
Among more than 300 content management systems, WordPress currently maintains its dominance in the market.
ORC Webhosting's strengths: a constant in improving WordPress performance.
Just as a precisely tuned engine ensures smooth driving for high-performance vehicles, optimized WordPress hosting ensures seamless functionality, fast load times, and a robust security foundation. This essential foundation is crucial for WordPress to reach its full potential, which directly impacts user experience and growth. By investing in specialized hosting, WordPress can shape, captivate and dominate the digital space in an impressive way.
ORC Webhosting takes a top place among the providers for optimized and fast web hosting for WordPress, for a variety of reasons that we will discuss in this article. But of particular note is our ongoing commitment to boosting the performance of WordPress websites. Our constant vision to elevate WordPress performance to the highest possible level is a key factor why clients repeatedly choose us. As pioneers in the industry, we are always at the forefront of implementing the latest software updates, such as PHP 8.2. This ensures that websites hosted at ORC Web Hosting are always technologically up-to-date.
Our established platform is carefully monitored and continuously maintained, allowing for regular iterations and optimizations. Thanks to this technological foundation, we are able to offer a balance between performance, reliability and cost. We are convinced that this ideally meets the needs of the vast majority of WordPress users.
Optimized WordPress Performance: The Power of Object and Opcode Caching
At ORC Web Hosting, our focus is on increasing the speed of websites. This is achieved by integrating both object and opcode caching directly into all hosting plans. This ensures that every user, regardless of their chosen hosting option, will reap the benefits. With the inclusion of object caching, which cleverly stores frequently accessed data like articles and user information in a powerful cache, repetitive data processing is significantly reduced. The result is improved website performance, leading to faster load times and an overall better user experience.
In addition to this, our systems are equipped with opcode caching, which stores compiled PHP in RAM to speed up processing, allowing faster and more efficient responses to subsequent requests within the same application.
Faster storage and faster loading with NVMe SSD
Solid State Drive memory, or SSD memory for short, represents an advanced form of data storage technology based on NAND-based flash memory. Unlike conventional hard disk drives (HDDs), which use rotating hard disks to store and retrieve data, SSDs are characterized by their motionless properties. These result in a significant increase in speed, enabling near-instantaneous data access and faster data transfer rates. The result is reduced loading times for websites, applications and files, leading to an overall improved user experience.
In terms of immediate data retrieval, it is worth noting that SSD storage significantly reduces latency, which is particularly beneficial for applications that require speedy data retrieval, such as databases and content management systems. This reduction in latency contributes to faster response times and allows websites to maintain stable performance without sacrificing performance, even during heavy traffic.
In addition, SSD storage increases reliability by minimizing the risk of mechanical failures that can occur with traditional hard disk drives. The absence of moving parts helps reduce wear and tear, which in turn extends life and increases data integrity.
ORC Web Hosting takes a top position in this area, as SSD storage is integrated into all hosting plans. This ensures that your data is stored on high-speed drives. This provides websites with increased reliability, shorter loading times, smooth performance and an overall improved hosting experience for all users.
We boost WordPress performance by integrating the latest PHP innovations
PHP, or Hypertext Preprocessor, is a scripting language used in web development. The latest PHP versions bring significant improvements in both speed and security. These versions are specifically designed to speed up the execution of code, resulting in shorter website loading times. In addition, the latest PHP versions provide enhanced security features and bug fixes that help protect websites from potential threats and vulnerabilities.
The latest incarnation of PHP, PHP 8.2, was released on December 8, 2022, and is currently the most current version. PHP 8.2 focuses on streamlining the developer experience, introducing simplifications to the coding process, and eliminating deprecated features. A Upgrade to the latest PHP version not only increases the security of your website, but also helps you get familiar with the updated syntax to make development smoother.
ORC Web Hosting stands out by providing the advanced PHP 8.2, setting new standards in the industry. While WordPress currently recommends PHP 7.4 and aims to migrate users to PHP 8.0, ORC Web Hosting's current effort is to ensure a seamless transition to PHP 8.2.
WordPress is always up to date with automatic updates
Automatic upgrades play a crucial role by making it much easier for users to use software. They eliminate the need for complex manual steps and replace them with a single click, which not only saves time, but also reduces errors. This functionality is especially important for platforms like WordPress, as it ensures fast and hassle-free usage for everyone.
Automatic installation helps improve performance by ensuring that the software, such as WordPress, is set up correctly and optimally adapted to the server environment. This eliminates potential user errors that could occur during manual installations and cause performance or compatibility issues. In addition to this, automatic installation often includes important optimizations and configurations that are set automatically, increasing the overall speed and efficiency of the software. The result is a smoother user experience, faster load times, and overall better website performance.
ORC Web Hosting is a pioneer in providing user-friendly solutions for WordPress users. Thanks to our one-click auto-install feature, setting up WordPress websites is as easy as a single click. For example, we automatically install the latest WordPress version, currently version 6.3, and provide new versions to our existing customers in a timely manner. Over half of our platform is updated within 24 hours of a new version being released. Even older versions where WP updates are disabled are updated without disruption whenever possible.
More hosting performance through improved computing resources
In the hosting environment, both RAM (Random Access Memory) and the CPU (Central Processing Unit) play an essential role. RAM is a fast-access memory that speeds up the processing of tasks, while the CPU acts as the "brain" of the system and executes instructions. Both RAM and CPU resources are crucial for smooth performance in hosting environments.
When websites or applications face increased user traffic or need to handle complex operations and resource-intensive tasks, more powerful computing resources are required. In such scenarios, where optimal performance is essential, upgrading to advanced resources such as improved RAM and a more powerful CPU becomes essential.
Our premium hosting plans offer enhanced computing resources that allow longer CPU usage and enable managing a larger number of concurrent web server connections. Additionally, we rely on opcode caching and object caching to reduce the required resources and request processing time. This efficiency makes it possible to do more with fewer resources.
Our approach is distinguished by the fact that we do not impose any restrictions on RAM per user, but rather follow WordPress' recommended RAM allocations per process.
