When I first heard about website hosting at Performance Foundry, my reaction was 'who in the world pays that'... 😉 It's now been almost 6 months since I joined the Performance Foundry and I wish I have done it much earlier.
I started my blog Full Suitcase three years ago with zero technical knowledge. As the blog grew and became a business, I couldn't afford any technical hiccups anymore, yet there were many, and they were taking so much of my time. Not to mention the stress that came with it.
Switching to Performance Foundry has been the best decision I took for my business so far. Not only is my website faster and safer than ever before, I can now completely focus on what I do best and grow my business further.
If you are serious about your business, then don't hesitate. Outsource your headaches to a dedicated team of professionals who know what they are doing and spend your energy and time on what you do best.
We recently moved our website to Performance Foundry and what a difference! If we could go back in time, we would have done this sooner. For months we struggled with our old hosting provider, who could not keep up with our growing traffic. Frequently our site would crash during peak periods. It was very frustrating.
We were nervous about migrating our website to a new provider, which is why we waited so long. The migration was seamless and instantly our site ran faster (and our site has not crashed one time since joining Performance Foundry).
This is one of the best things we have ever done for our website. The price may sound expensive, but what you are getting is awesome support and access to a team of developers. Goodbye headaches, goodbye stress...I feel like we have someone looking out for us now and it is worth every penny.
Moving to Performance Foundry:
I'd been with a "top rated" host for over 5 years, but began to realize, after seeing Craig's wise comments on Travel Blog Success, that my "#1 host" was actually steering me wrong and hurting my site in a number of ways. When that host completely broke my site for almost 24 hours after doing a required upgrade, I knew I had to switch to someone who actually knows the cutting-edge technology, and how to use it correctly.
After moving to PF, not only did my site speed up significantly, but PF found a MAJOR database error that had been messing up my sites for years that my old host didn't catch. After days of hard work, PF was able to find a brilliant fix for it, which I am so appreciative for.
Everyone at PF is so professional, pleasant, helpful, and knowledgable. It helps that I personally know and fully trust Linda and Craig, too!
Why switch to Performance Foundry?
The clearest example for PF's superiority for me was my differing experience between my old host and PF with regards to SSL implementation, since I have two sites and did one of each.
With my old host, SSL implementation was done in a clunky way that was full of weeks of errors and issues. In contrast, my SSL migration with Performance Foundry was seamless and brilliant. None of the errors that I got with the old host happened, and PF's support and knowledge were stellar.
I would highly recommend PF for both managed hosting and SSL migration! I only wish I'd switched over sooner!
Side note: Performance Foundry offers web design! This is another thing I wish I'd known and used earlier!
I made the switch to Performance Foundry as my hosting provider when it became clear that the previous plan I had wasn't able to handle the kind of traffic I was getting. The switch was seamless and I never noticed any down time. They were even able to find a way to keep my email address on my old hosting plan (where I have a couple other smaller sites) which saved me a lot of headache. Almost immediately I noticed an uptick in traffic. In the short time I've been with them, I've done several things to improve my search traffic, but it's clear that one of the things that has helped is being with Performance Foundry. They fixed up some things on my site to make it run faster, and my traffic (and bank account) are showing the results. It's a little weird to hand over the reins on a few things I'm used to doing myself or having my husband/developer do for me, but I know Craig and Linda and their staff know what they're doing. I'm definitely happy I made this switch.
I was facing downtimes and lack of support of my previous host.
Performance Foundry not only have my site up & running 100% but also helped me to fix several speed issues on my website.
Best decision ever!
I’ve spent most of my years in the corporate world looking after customers, and after one too many bad customer experiences with my original host, I went looking for someone more professional.
Being fairly new to the blogging world at the time, I didn’t really feel as though I could justify spending a lot of money on a host. But it was hard to overlook my values of quality and integrity.
Time and time again, since signing on with Performance Foundry I have had my decision validated. Exceptional customer service, every time, and only the very best of help and support. The fact that they ring me a couple of times a year just to “check-in” is testament to the value they place on customer service.
Being able to do everything I need to to run my business is so much easier knowing these guys are my back end support.
Craig Martin has been a part of Travel Blog Success, my online community for travel bloggers, since it launched in 2010. Over the years, I've watched him engage and help bloggers firsthand.
In Fall 2016, when Travel Blog Success was experiencing multiple technical problems, in part due to changes in the server environment of our web host, I appealed to him for help. Because the issue was affecting our sales, he treated it as a high priority, working over a dozen hours to troubleshoot the problem. Ultimately, we were able to resolve the biggest issue, and a host of smaller ones, by moving Travel Blog Success to Performance Foundry's hosting.
Since then, we've used Performance Foundry to perform a variety of small and medium design-related tasks, and have been very happy with the support and results. I'm happy to recommend Craig and his team to bloggers everywhere!
We had been unhappy with our previous hosting provider for a while and had investigated other hosting options but didn't find one that we thought would be more reliable. When we heard about Performance Foundry, we loved the idea but were unsure about the cost involved. Having been with Performance Foundry for nearly two months now, I wish we had made the jump sooner! Signing up to Performance Foundry has been, without doubt, one of our best investments to date. Our site is faster, the load time is quicker and our page views have increased by one third in just a few weeks. We could not be happier.
After trying one genius sysadmin and two other consulting companies we finally have found a web and server team we are happy with and can recommend in Performance Foundry. They were able to work with us to help us change out our theme and optimize our site and plugins so that we have been able to significantly reduce load times, increase site performance, and overall save some money on server costs sale to sale.
Working with their team has been amazing. They know their stuff are great to work with and understand small business owners needs, wants and timelines. Thank you PF team!
Moving to a fully managed Wordpress hosting service with Performance Foundry was a massive step up for us from the self-managed options we had been using before. As our business has grown and the needs of our website have increased with it, we decided that it was time to hand over the management, maintenance and improvement of the technical aspects of the site to people who really know what they're doing and understand how that applies to our business.
Since moving over to Performance Foundry we have seen a significant improvement in all areas of site performance, including page loading speed, database optimisation, security and overall user experience. Their technical support team is always available to take care of any issues we may have, urgent or otherwise, in a friendly and responsive manner.
The biggest advantage however, is in having the peace of mind that the heart of our business is being taken care of with regular input and monitoring, allowing us to focus on development, growth and of course the reason we started it all in the first place -- travelling the world!
