Enabling Bigger Business

Griffin’s business was growing. 5DayDeal.com runs flash sales for photographers: thousands of dollars of training and software reduced to around a hundred bucks. But Griffin and his team just couldn’t handle the traffic from hundreds of thousands of visitors.

Until they came to Performance Foundry.

For the first time in 5DayDeal history the servers did not crash during the initial onslaught of hour one…

Since the last sale we hired the team from Performance Foundry to do a complete overhaul of the site for speed and optimisation.

If you need help with a high performance WordPress website, I highly recommend Performance Foundry.

Does Performance Foundry Work Well?

Let's ask our clients!

When I first heard about website hosting at Performance Foundry, my reaction was ‘who in the world pays that’… It’s now been almost 6 months since I joined the Performance Foundry and I wish I have done it much earlier.

I started Full Suitcase three years ago with zero technical knowledge. As the blog grew and became a business, I couldn’t afford any technical hiccups anymore, yet there were many, and they were taking so much of my time. Not to mention the stress that came with it.

Switching to Performance Foundry has been the best decision I took for my business so far. Not only is my website faster and safer than ever before, I can now completely focus on what I do best and grow my business further.

If you are serious about your business, then don’t hesitate. Outsource your headaches to a dedicated team of professionals who know what they are doing and spend your energy and time on what you do best.

We recently moved our website to Performance Foundry and what a difference! If we could go back in time, we would have done this sooner. For months we struggled with our old hosting provider, who could not keep up with our growing traffic. Frequently our site would crash during peak periods. It was very frustrating.

We were nervous about migrating our website to a new provider, which is why we waited so long. The migration was seamless and instantly our site ran faster (and our site has not crashed one time since joining Performance Foundry).

This is one of the best things we have ever done for our website. The price may sound expensive, but what you are getting is awesome support and access to a team of developers. Goodbye headaches, goodbye stress…I feel like we have someone looking out for us now and it is worth every penny.

I’ve heard about Performance Foundry from a friend. I was in a time of crisis. My website was down quite often and Hostgator didn’t seem to be able to prevent these failures. Performance Foundry stepped and although it was a weekend, they took the time to put my website up and in the process did some optimization. I haven’t been with them for too long, but I already feel that someone is behind me, ready to support me when I encounter issues or I have questions. They are patient, knowledgeable and extremely easy to work with.

I moved to Performance Foundry because we were having scaling issues with our other hosting. As our site’s traffic increased, so did the amount of times our website would crash. For 8 months we went back and forth with our old hosting support and got no where.

After we switched to Performance Foundry within 10 days, we had a site performance report and suggestions on how we could improve. They identified the main problem that was causing our site to crash and are helping us resolve it. Our site hasn’t crashed since the switch.

We couldn’t be happier with the level of customer service they provide. It is top class!

Craig and the team have always gone the extra mile by taking the time to understand our business requirements, providing an extremely professional and efficient personalised service.

We recently requested Performance Foundry commence a trial of SEO optimisation. We are seeing real gains in turning clicks into hard leads through the expert analysis and detailed reporting that Performance Foundry provide.

We would happily recommend Performance Foundry to any other businesses that are looking to build a long term solid relationship with their SEO optimisation / website maintenance provider.

Learning Escapes

I recently moved my blog to Performance Foundry Hosting and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. With my previous host, I seemed to be working on issues all the time and the technical side of blogging was a constant source of stress and expenses. I still remember dreading their emails and notifications!

Since moving, all this stress has been taken away from me: the blog is running smoothly and I never hear anything about it that requires my attention. The Performance Foundry tips to improve site speed, one of my biggest problems, have worked great and I can already tell traffic is improving because of it.

The PF team is really friendly and supportive: I am so happy with them I am now using their design services too. It is great to have one team taking care of everything, I highly recommend them to anyone looking for professional, all round support.

I recently transferred my family travel site hosting to Performance Foundry because I was looking for better support. I have been very happy with their service and recommendations to improve my site performance and speed. They have made it all very easy for me.

I was a little nervous before making my hosting switch since there were so many possibilities on what could go wrong, but Performance Foundry was patient with me to walk me through everything they were doing. They do all the heavy lifting and keep it incredibly simple for you. It was a flawless transition and I’m thankful for all the hard work they did on my behalf.

I was facing downtimes and lack of support of my previous host.

Performance Foundry not only have my site up & running 100% but also helped me to fix several speed issues on my website.

Best decision ever!

Why I moved to Performance Foundry

My site was down with A2 hosting and they were not bothered about fixing it. I was paying them around $30/month and paying my dev 50/month yet when I had issues they just blamed each other. In the end PF was cheaper for me and offered WAY more, it was a no-brainer.

Benefits

I’ve joined the affiliate program so hope to save money on hosting through that – and the monthly fixes that are offered are great. This month I had them make a pop up for my ebook! I love that each month I can get something off my design/dev to do list for free.

What I love about Performance Foundry

They did the full speed test and work up of my site when I switched over, got rid of plugins, seem as OCD as me and seem to really care about my site functioning well – I was overly impressed.

Why should someone switch to Performance Foundry?

I would see if they are paying a dev a monthly fee – and if so, it’s probably a no brainer to switch because it saves money and time to not go between people. I’d also see if they are having downtime and want to strangle their host when on the phone lol, because wasting time with that holds us back with our blog and businesses.

Since switching, I haven’t had an issue yet when I had a month with family in July in the USA I was on the phone every other day fighting with A2 hosting about my site going down – it was horrible and I wish I switched sooner. The money is why I didn’t but once I worked out the dev costs and what was included with PF it is actually cheaper!
