HardyPress is a secure and fast WordPress hosting service targeted to vulnerable, legacy and zero-maintenance websites that aims to free webmasters from performance, security, maintenance and scalability issues of WordPress sites, combining the benefits of this world famous CMS — ease of installation and use — with those of a Static Sites Generator, namely security and performance.
The “dynamic” part of the architecture for most sites is only really exploited by admins while navigating in the backend of their CMS, in conjunction with updating their site. For the rest of the time, millions of servers around the world continue to produce each visit the same page produced a second before, and visitors “undergo” a dynamic architecture that only produces negative effects on their experience: slowness, instability, potential vulnerabilities.
So the HardyPress way to simplify things is to use WordPress as a static site generator, as simple as that. It works a bit like a web crawler, starting at the main page of your website and looking for links to other pages to create static copies of. It also includes any images, CSS & JS files, and any other files that it can find a link to.
The static generated content is then automatically uploaded and distributed through a CDN with 30 SSD servers around the globe.
In addition we take care of optimize the site for SEO, make contact forms running seamlessly, and augment the search box to provide instant suggestions to visitors even if the final site is static.
