4 Mins read

Moving to the ZNetLive WordPress Hosting solution helped Wire19 increase page speed by 57% and manage several concurrent connections.

Running a media portal is definitely not an easy task! Especially, when you are in a constant race against your competitors. You cannot afford a delay of even a few seconds.

Wire19 is a comprehensive information portal that brings latest updates from across the IT industry on trending topics like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics, Digital Transformation, Cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), big data and analytics, and more.

They promote knowledge sharing and interaction between different industry members via informative articles, news, CXO’s interviews, reports, and infographics.


The challenges faced by Wire19

When they initially started small, with a decent number of subscribers and news stories, their site was running fine.

But as they started to take off to touch a higher number of subscribers (around 3K) and news stories (1300+), things started getting difficult for them.

Wire19 site was not able to manage the traffic, which in turn increased their page loading time.

The website loaded very slow. Latency is a very important feature of a website. A page that loads slowly will eventually demotivate the visitors. Their inbox started flooding with messages like “Your site loads so slow” “I am not able to access your site on mobile” and others.

  • When they started, they had almost no idea about caching and security issues. To their horror, their site faced a number of attacks. They were not able to find a permanent solution to secure their website from cyberattacks.
  • Wire19 is a very content-intensive website with multiple elements like news, articles, reports, whitepapers, interviews, etc. As the content volume increased, they wondered if they should back up their data.
  • One of the most daunting tasks was to manually check for WordPress updates.
  • Their mobile traffic was also increasing.

Gradually, they realized that they needed an optimized hosting solution that could potentially save them from these headaches, and free them to focus on their core business- content generation and marketing.

This is when they came across the optimized WordPress Hosting solution by ZNetLive.
