It really depends. What type of server and hosting your site is on and whether or not you are willing to use our hosted solution. There are both WordPress-specific optimizations as well as server-side optimization that can help improve page speed.
We'll always be able to make the site faster, but how much faster will depend. Fortunately, it's risk-free so you pay only after you see the improvements.
Your WordPress website is already hosted on a server somewhere. It could be Digital Ocean, WP Engine, Flywheel, GoDaddy, etc.
Here at ZippyWP, we also have the ability to host your website, which we offer exclusively to our page speed clients and is designed for speed.
For our hosted solution, we will help migrate your website to our servers. You pay for web hosting and we include continuous speed improvements as part of that service. This costs $50 per month or $500 per year for the hosting.
For the self-hosted solution, we implement our improvements into your existing website on its current host. Speeds may vary depending on how well optimized your web host is for speed. This costs $400 one-time with an optional $100 per quarter tune-up service.
It's typically very straightforward. Since we already have a staging environment set up on our speed-optimized server, all you have to do is change a DNS record and the transfer is complete.
However, our hosting migration team is available to work closely with you to ensure a smooth process with no downtime for no extra cost. We will need access to your web hosting environment in addition to WordPress to ensure a smooth transition.
Our service is risk-free. This means if you don't like the results after our optimizations then you don't have to pay. We will definitely be sad and the team may shed a tear but we promise there will be no hard feelings.
In order to avoid downtime and issues with functionality, while the team is optimizing your website, we do so in a staging environment on our servers.
We try to use the environment that best matches your current web host but sometimes there are server-side optimizations on our servers that are not implemented on yours. This may cause some slight inconsistencies with the results we show you in our comparisons and the results you see once you import into your environment.
You can choose to host with us to get the faster result, however, it should be much quicker regardless.
We don't usually optimize page speed on a live website. This is because we often break things during the process while we figure out the best configuration for your specific situation. We can make an exception from time to time however, these instances are not risk-free and require pre-payment without the ability to know the improvement beforehand.
Yes! We work closely with many agencies and freelancers to support their website projects and their past clients on improving the overall site speed. We also help support our partners with best practices for WordPress development.
We offer a variety of options based on the situation you prefer. Whether you're simply looking for an affiliate payout for a referral, bulk pricing for further discounts, or to leverage a part-time speed optimizer, we can find a solution that works best for you.
Of course. We have a deep understanding of server optimization and hosting. While our priority is page speed optimization we do not sacrifice security or usability in the process and are happy to provide WordPress security and maintenance if needed.
