Pantheon is a Different Kind of WordPress Host

Use Pantheon’s WordPress hosting to deliver sites with unrivaled speed, uptime, and scalability. Publish in real-time and take control of your roadmap with minimal operational overhead. Whether you're a boutique agency or an enterprise platform, our hosting and WebOps (Website Operations) platform helps you drive results with WordPress.

The Fastest WordPress Hosting Platform

Website speed matters. According to Google, a load time increase of two seconds will cause a 30-60% jump in visitor abandonment. With Pantheon WordPress hosting, you can rest easy knowing your site is always performing, and it's all thanks to our super-efficient container-based platform. Multiple independent benchmarks have compared Pantheon with other providers, and we consistently come out on top.

Centrally Manage all Your WordPress Sites

Pantheon is the ideal platform for implementing WordPress at scale. Manage your site portfolio from a single dashboard, and deploy code easily across hundreds (or even thousands) of WordPress sites. Our scaling containers power monolithic WordPress Multisite environments, and give you full access to the richness of WordPress without creating chaos.

Handle Traffic Spikes With Confidence

With most WordPress hosting providers, you run the risk of downtime during traffic spikes or when other sites hog shared resources. On Pantheon, you can scale to millions of pageviews without compromising performance. Plus, the platform’s container-based infrastructure makes it far more reliable than VMs or clusters. Now that's enterprise-grade WordPress hosting.

Managed WordPress Hosting vs. Traditional WordPress Hosting

The standard bare-bones WordPress host offers server space, a few rudimentary tools, and not much else. You build the infrastructure, install the dev tools, and do your own support. With managed hosting on Pantheon, our platform handles architecture, capacity, setup, and more. Each Pantheon account comes with a host of features designed to make development and administration simple and intuitive.

Pantheon is #1 on the Managed Hosting Relationship rankings from G2 Crowd. If you’re migrating a large portfolio or complex architecture, our Professional Services team provides Managed Updates ensures the continued reliability and security of your site—freeing you to focus on the work that matters.
