Run your sites on the fastest WordPress hosting platform on the planet.

Pantheon is the world’s fastest host for WordPress websites. 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. Website speed matters because according to Kissmetrics, 40% of visitors abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load.

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.


Every site comes with identical Dev, Test, and Live environments.


Boost sales with faster page loads and all the security and infrastructure you need to grow (or scale) your business.


Keep your site and your visitors secure with HTTPS certificates. Certs are renewed and managed by us.


Manage thousands of sites from one codebase to control universal standards while allowing individual sites freedom to customize.

Automated Backups

Nightly automated backups of your site’s database, files, and code plus single-click restoration if something goes wrong.

“We saw real performance improvements right after migrating to Pantheon and our team can release updates every day.”
Nathan Jacobson, Web Developer

Handle traffic spikes and promotions with confidence

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

The Tools Developers Need to Drive WordPress Performance

The best tools for driving performance are built into Pantheon's platform. Varnish and Redis provide high-speed edge caching and robust application caching, while New Relic powers application performance monitoring. Our Global CDN guarantees lightning-fast response times around the world.

Built-In Staging Environments for Seamless WordPress Development

Never underestimate the power of great workflow. On Pantheon, you never pay for development or staging environments. Every site comes with identical pre-configured Dev, Test, and Live environments connected by version control. Use a continuous integration workflow and deploy code safely.

Pantheon has all the stuff I’d be looking for in a WordPress host: awareness of the application stack, focus on scaling, CLI access, rsync, etc.
