We had an idea. Five years ago, way back in the internet dark ages, hosting options for WordPress were pretty lousy. Hosting companies were selling “unlimited everything” plans for $4.95/mo (some still do). It looked good on the surface, but if you ever used those companies back then you remember the terrible performance, the unmitigated and relentless threat of malware/hacking, and the endless barrage of up-sells that you got whenever you sought out ‘support’ for help. Pagely launched with this simple idea that hosting could be better… Read It

Has this ever happened to you? Your hosting company tells you the server you were on is dead, and they are trying to get it back online or will be moving you to a new server. Hours go by, your site is offline, and you are becoming increasingly frustrated. Perhaps after an hour, or 3, or 8, your site is back online and you go on about your way upset at the lost opportunity and revenue caused from the failure. Hardware… Read It

Here at Pagely® we’ve recently upgraded our control panel (Atomic™) to allow full control over 301 redirects with respect to domain aliases. This means you no longer have to do it manually via an .htaccess file. What is a domain alias? A domain alias is a domain name that can be used as an alternate name for another domain. So think of domain aliases as other domain names that serve as front doors to your website. An example of a domain… Read It

staging

Here at Pagely® we’ve had customers requesting a staging location for some time, and finally we have an answer. Our VPS plans and above (Enterprise) now feature staging which is great news. The current staging we have in place syncs files and databases between sites with the ability to ignore tables and/or files. There is also a capability for basic site renaming, but without database rewriting of URLs since there are cases where that can cause issues. Our normal recommendation… Read It

The new intake flow is : Create Account, Redirect to hosted (PCI)… Read It
