Yesterday, Pixafy launched Herculo, an exciting new hosting platform that brings you perfectly-tuned hosting for two of the web’s most exciting and popular content platforms on the web today: WordPress and Magento.
We invite you to check out Herculo and see for yourself why it’s something different in today’s marketplace. And we want to hear from you: what would make running a website easier or better? How can we make Herculo even stronger? We’ll be listening, and responding, as Herculo grows and evolves.
With Herculo, we’re leveraging our expertise in building and managing sites on both of these platforms, each of which are market leaders: WordPress powers almost one-fifth of all websites online today, and Magento is the platform of choice for one-third of online stores today. We’re also leveraging our knowledge of these platforms to develop a unique hosting environment specifically constructed to support WordPress and Magento.
Managed hosting means we do the heavy lifting, managing the base software platform and making sure that the hosting is configured to get the most from the platforms. We manage the traffic spikes from press or social media. You can focus your attention on what matters to you – making sure your site is exactly as you want it! And if you can’t get it there yourself, you can leverage the power of Pixafy through our professional services offerings.
Focusing on two platforms means we can offer intelligent support, and can get you the help that you need more easily. For instance, subscribers get access to a growing tutorial library, “Herculo University,” that explains in detail how to do many things with WordPress and, soon, Magento, so site owners can too become experts. We have phone, online and email support with support agents who use these platforms daily, so they’re on the same page with you. And we’ve built our own proprietary account portal for all our customers to manage common tasks.
Pixafy professional services customers are even more poised to benefit, as the tie of development and hosting is a natural one. Pairing hosting with development can ensure we get the absolute best performance out of your site. Competitors of ours prefer to marry development with design; we prefer to leave design in the hands of our design and branding partners, who are executing a particular vision for the company, and focus on what we do best: the technology. Instead of hosting on a generic platform that will result in slower page loads and potential outages during heavy traffic, Herculo will get you the best out of your website.
We thank our team, and our customers, for the support as we’ve prepared for this launch, and invite you to join us on this latest journey – we’re just getting started.
