Infrastructure and Data Center
Our network is engineered for the high-availability demands of today’s eCommerce websites. The custom-built servers are connected to the internet through multiple redundant connections, ensuring fast data delivery and uninterrupted connectivity. The hosting environment is designed to maximize uptime, performance, and security.
WooCommerce Shopping Cart
WooCommerce is the most customizable eCommerce platform for building your online business. It is now the most popular eCommerce platform on the web (stats from Builtwith), so you can rest assured you’re in good company. Right out of the box, you can accept payments by Check, Cash on Delivery, and Credit Cards via PayPal. WooCommerce powers over 39% of all online stores.
Note: If you are looking for an eCommerce solution for subscriptions or members only sites, we recommend Cart66 Cloud instead of WooCommerce. We also support Cart66 Cloud.
WordPress has revolutionized the ease and power of what a website (or blog) can do and be. Now, with the Genesis Framework, you can take WordPress even further …
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
You put a lot into your site – you want to make sure that you’re ranking well in the search engines so readers, customers, and clients can find you. And clean, optimized code + smart design architecture is important for achieving the best rankings possible.
Genesis has been fully search optimized by Greg Boser, search engine optimization pioneer and industry expert. With automatic updates, you never have to think about it again. Your code will always be up to date and fully optimized.

How does HTML5 enhance your site? First, it’s the new code standard, which will make your site compatible with future changes to the web. Secondly, it will ensure cross-browser compatibility. HTML5 makes your site mobile-friendly by being responsive, and it will improve your site’s ability to deliver audio and video. And it’s completely extensible – want your site to behave like an app? Go for it. Simply put, HTML5 is your site’s ticket to a truly state-of-the-art design.
State-Of-The-Art, Airtight Security
WordPress sites can be vulnerable to those who want to take your site down or exploit it for malicious reasons. Having your site hacked is an expensive, time-consuming hassle – and it can really damage your reputation.
The makers of Genesis brought security expert and core WordPress developer Mark Jaquith in to make sure the framework follows all WordPress security best practices.
Customizable and Fast
Genesis offers features to make it simple to set up your site exactly the way you want it. And if you change your mind later, you’re just a few clicks away from creating new sections and functions. But unlike other frameworks, you don’t have to sacrifice performance for options.
Nothing slows down a site like bloated code. Genesis is cleaner and more lightweight. Web page load times are usually discussed in seconds, but page load times for sites built on Genesis can often be measured and discussed in milliseconds. And today, that’s an essential difference.
Custom Widgets & Layout Options
The Genesis Framework is widgetized beyond just the sidebar with some custom widgets that you can use on any area of your site. Another great feature is that you can “mix and match” your layout. This means you can choose, via a radio button, any of the 3 layouts for each one of your individual pages or posts.
Sucuri Website Security
The Sucuri WordPress Security plugin is a toolset for security integrity monitoring, malware detection, audit logging, and security hardening.
CloudFlare CDN with SSL
CloudFlare protects and accelerates any eCommerce website online. Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through their intelligent global network. They automatically optimize the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. They also block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources. The result: CloudFlare-powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks. CloudFlare’s 101 data centers located across the globe provide visitors with location-based access to your website, while removing latency and improving performance.
- DDoS protection
- Globally load balanced content delivery network (CDN)
- SSL Certificate
- Site Analytics
- loads twice as fast
- uses 60% less bandwidth
- has 65% fewer requests
- is way more secure
Expanding on Cloudflare’s highly available DNS infrastructure and global Anycast network, the Cloudflare Load Balancing is a cloud-based load-balancing solution that enhances the performance and availability of your website. Designed for scale, flexibility, and robustness, Cloudflare Load Balancing enables your WordPress site to deliver the ultimate end user experience through the highest level of performance and reliability.
CloudFlare includes SSL. HTTPS works with your own domain name (with and without www). Furthermore, a dedicated IP address is NOT required. SSL can improve your website’s Google Ranking. Google gives a ranking boost to secure HTTPS sites.
Cloudflare provides insight to your website traffic that you can’t get from other analytics programs. In addition to visitor analytics, you can monitor threats and search engine crawlers. For most websites, these threats and crawlers make up 20% to 50% of traffic. It’s traffic every website should understand, but most analytics services ignore.
Note: Once your domain is resolving to our network, we can setup CDN + SSL for you. Please contact us to get this done.
You can seamlessly upgrade your plan anytime with no loss of data or downtime.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you configure my WooCommerce settings?
No. We install WooCommerce for you, but you’ll need to activate it and, with the help of their quick setup wizard, setup your store (page setup, store locale, shipping & tax, and payments). It is an easy process; however, if you want someone to do this for you, we offer a Full-Service Package.
Do you setup the theme for me?
We install and activate the Genesis Framework and Workstation Pro theme for you. We also install and activate the required plugins (except WooCommerce). We do not install any demo content (except the Contact Page) or configure headers, menus, widgets, etc. We provide detailed instructions to help you do this. However, if you want someone to do this for you, we offer a Full-Service Package.
Do you offer email hosting or free domain names?
No. Web hosting, hosted email, and domain name registration are three different services that should be handled separately. Savvy webmasters purposefully separate the three under the “No single point of failure” doctrine.
For hosted email, we recommend Google’s G Suite. With Google’s service, each mailbox includes 30 GB of storage, 30 aliases, spam protection, online calendar, collaboration tools and more.
For affordable domain names, we recommend Your Domain Registrar. Their service includes 10 free email forwards with each domain registered.
