WordPress standalone or clusterized installation in the cloud is pretty easy, if talking about Cloudlets platform.

But what if you'd like to migrate an existing WordPress environment?

No matter where you currently host your wordpress site we can provide a free migration to the Cloudlets platform. First create your account using the button above. Once you have an account fill out the form on the free copy & test migration page to request your migration, if you need some advice simply email support@cloudlets.com.au.

There are three basic options with regards to your wordpress environment:

  • Optimised WordPress environment containing one Nginx container running PHP-FPM and one MySQL CE container. Minimum cost is $11.40 per month.
  • Extended WordPress environment containing one Nginx container running PHP-FPM, one MySQL CE container and one Memcached container. Minimum cost is $15.20 per month.
  • Clustered WordPress environment containing one Nginx load balancer, two Nginx containers running PHP-FPM, two MySQL CE containers. Minimum cost is $26.60 per month.

Extended WordPress environment provides the best performance with the use of Memcached (and memcached can also be added to the clustered WordPress environment on request).

During the free migration Cloudlets tech team will install the Duplicator plugin to your WordPress installation which will be used for backup creation. In case an installation with Memcached is required, W3 Total Cache will be installed and configured. This may require disabling any competing caching plugins.

NOTE: your existing wordpress installation will not be modified (apart from temporarily installing Duplicator to create the backup as mentioned above).

Once the migration is complete you will be provided a URL you can access the site on the Cloudlets environment so you can compare speeds directly with your current wordpress installation before moving the domain.

Combating Scrapers and Heavy Load Events

Running a popular WordPress site used to be a balancing act. If scrapers hit your website causing hundreds of requests per second your site would slow to a crawl or stop working at all. If a promotion sees an influx of hits from legitimate customers you need infrastructure to be able to handle it. With dynamic cloudlets you have access to extra resources on the fly whenever your site requires them without you doing anything. Cloudlets just handles it for you.

Instead of losing business by being offline, you just pay for the extra resources only when your site actually requires them. Don't risk losing sales by choosing standard hosting services, let us worry about your hosting, so you can work on your sales.

If you don't need any assistance with the migration - check out the Get Started page which has the basic instructions you need to provision your WordPress environment. Don't forget when you provision your environment you choose a cloudlets.com.au URL, once you're happy you can connect your domain to the environment to make it public. You don't even need to purchase your own public IP address (these are available if you really want one), and SSL is enabled FREE of charge at the click of a button.
