Web Hosting

Remember, your business performance depends on your website performance. For every second visitors wait, conversions drop 7 percent.  Town Press Media can help.

We only provide managed hosting via Pantheon. Pantheon ensures your website will continue to perform at high speeds, with minimal need for support. The platform automatically does much of the work required to keep professional-grade WordPress and Drupal sites fast, secure, and scalable.

Pantheon isn’t the cheapest option out there but we believe that Pantheon offers the best value for our clients with plans as low as $50 per month. You remain in complete control while we manage the daily tasks of your website updating.

We can even move your current Drupal or WordPress website as well as host certain HTML websites.

F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Fastest Platform for Websites. Period.

Your business performance depends on your website performance. For every second visitors wait, conversions drop 7 percent. Pantheon is tuned to deliver the fastest performance possible.

Third-parties like Loadstorm rate Pantheon as #1 in performance and reliability. The platform is so ridiculously fast that sites migrating from generic hosting see dramatic speed boosts instantly.

Why Pantheon?

Experience matters when it comes to anything. You probably don’t want a brand new doctor learning how to do a surgery on you for the first time. The same holds true when your site is down and you’re looking to a host’s support engineer to work through an issue with the CMS.

Pantheon ensures your website will continue to perform at high speeds, with minimal need for support. The platform automatically does much of the work required to keep professional-grade WordPress and Drupal sites fast, secure, and scalable.

The True Cost of Cheap Hosting

At $5 a month, shared hosting (or an unmanaged virtual server) may seem like a bargain. But it isn’t designed to keep Drupal and WordPress sites consistently secure, fast, and up-to-date. Neither include all the hidden costs agencies will need to bill you for because your $5 hosting plan doesn’t have a development and testing environment, reliable backups, and a reasonable and secure manner for developers to collaborate on a project.

The true costs of hosting can add up to thousands of dollars a year for ongoing maintenance and troubleshooting.

Save Billable Hours by Staying in Sync with Your Agency

Want to hire Town Press Again? One quick email and we can log in and be working on a new feature at a moment’s notice. Identical environments keep work-in-progress separate from your live site, so you’ll never need to see screenshots or hand-drawn wireframes to know what developers are up to.

See the test site exactly as it will appear when it’s live. Developers used to spend billable hours configuring these environments by hand. Now those hours can go straight into your features wish list.​​

What's included?

As a managed hosting provider, we ensure your website keeps running smooth. We do this by having a staging platform to initiate code changes without affecting the live site until we know it works.

For our managed hosting service, we perform basic WordPress maintenance functions such as the following:

  • WordPress core software upgrading.
  • Plugin updating and installs.
  • Theme updating (free or paid if we have access).
  • Security Checks.
  • Backups / Restorations if needed.
  • Database management.
  • XML Sitemap Creation and submission to Google.
Squeeze More ROI from Your Investment

Every dollar you spend on web development should contribute to the growth of your business. Using open-source CMSes like Drupal and WordPress brings you closer to that goal, as developers don’t need to start from scratch. However, they must still spend many hours on system administration.

Pantheon allows you to funnel 100% of your investment in web development directly to the high-value features and strategy that grow your business. And not just while your website is in development, but for its entire lifetime.

Be Impervious to Website Attacks

If you never want to be hacked, Pantheon is the platform of choice. Pantheon makes continuous platform-wide upgrades so you don’t need to ask a developer about Heartbleed, Internet Doomsday, or other risks du jour.

Pantheon also enables your developers to quickly update your site in one click. No site that follows security best practices on Pantheon has ever been hacked, despite millions of attempts across tens of thousands of sites.
