Integrated, Free CDN

All sites on Pantheon are backed by our Global CDN to ensure optimal site performance and superior security. Thanks to a partnership with Fastly’s edge cloud platform, Pantheon sites are distributed from 40+ points of presence around the world. The only way to automatically get your site delivered faster than lightspeed across the globe is to run it on Pantheon. Global CDN gives you sub-second pageloads, free and managed HTTPS, and global reach for no additional charge.

Smooth Scaling

Traditional hosting offers a range of architectures based on website size and traffic. Your website can only scale after someone resizes a server and overhauls your infrastructure.

On Pantheon, scaling is easy and immediate. When your website needs to scale, the platform provisions new containers for you in seconds.

As you develop, be confident that any changes you deploy will perform exactly as you expect when you scale to millions of users in production. Pantheon is the only platform that guarantees your code will work the same in the Dev, Test, and Live environments.

Developer Tools for the Modern Age

Powerful tools and best practice workflows to supercharge your development efficiency.

Pre-Configured Staging Environments and Version Control Out of the Box

Workflow Graphic

Dev, Test, and Live environments

Run a continuous integration workflow out of the box. Every site includes a Dev, Test, and Live environment connected by version control. Each has its own database, file system connection, and URL. Because each environment is a replica of the others, when your code works in Dev you know it will work in Live. Our best practice workflow helps you launch faster and collaborate with ease.


Cloud development environments

Multidev allows you to fork your entire stack (code and content), work independently, then merge changes back into the master. Each branch is an entire development environment with the same configuration as the live site.


Automate Your Workflow and Integrate with Your Favorite Tools

Dashboard or CLI

Dashboard or command line, it’s your call

One dashboard has all you need—connections via SFTP or Git, one-click deployment, automated backups, and Drupal and WordPress updates. Or use Terminus, Pantheon’s command-line interface. Anything you can do in the Developer Dashboard you can also do on Terminus. Automate tasks and access Drush and WP-CLI.

Favorite Tools

Automate and integrate with your favorite tools
