We’re proud to partner with a range of enterprise WordPress hosting providers to safeguard the availability, reliability and performance of our solutions – supported by skilled business analysts, IT consultants and solution architects who identify the best possible approach to meet the exact needs and requirements of our clients.
Our extensive experience in physical, hybrid and cloud hosting means we’re also ideally placed to deliver bespoke hosting solutions, based upon robust infrastructure designs that enable seamless integration and communication between the various elements of your technology ecosystem.
Applying extensive experience designing, delivering and maintaining high-traffic and high-transaction WordPress platforms, our multidisciplinary team is perfectly placed to help enterprise-level organisations unlock the benefits of this flexible and scalable framework.
Our expertise in multilingual and multisite WordPress installations has supported clients including OKdo and RS Components in expanding their global reach, while a focus on high performance and page speed has delivered measurable returns for organisations like Dexerto, who are now able to serve content to millions of users per month, faster than ever before.
We’re also skilled in working with WooCommerce – the enterprise ecommerce plugin for WordPress – and integrating these systems with backoffice components such as ERP, tax engines, trade compliance and third-party logistics, to support the end-to-end ecommerce journey.
If you’re looking to make WordPress part of your enterprise tech stack, it’s vital to consider how your solution will be hosted, as the decision you make here can have a significant impact on your ability to serve your audience both now and in future. Box UK will deliver a solution to suit your specific needs, drawing on our network of enterprise WordPress hosting partners as well as our in-house expertise.
We are a Strategic Partner agency for WP Engine, the most popular managed WordPress hosting platform in the world today. As a managed hosting platform, WP Engine provides organisations with a combination of hosting, integration and support services to manage and optimise WordPress sites, working with leading cloud vendors including Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform to offer high-performance and highly-scalable hosting solutions.
We are also a Silver agency development partner to WordPress VIP, the digital experience platform from Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com itself. WordPress VIP provides an enterprise version of WordPress, including purpose-built cloud hosting, integrations with leading technology providers, and a dedicated support service. Its focus is on supporting websites at scale, and its proprietary cloud-based hosting platform leverages a globally-distributed network and behind-the-scenes plugins to maintain the highest levels of performance.
As WordPress is an open source solution, it offers near limitless levels of flexibility in how organisations choose to host their WordPress installations, and while the high levels of confidence, security and support offered by managed hosting providers such as WP Engine and WordPress VIP make them an ideal choice for enterprise organisations, there may be compelling reasons to choose a bespoke hosting solution.
You may for example be working with complex solutions that require access to advanced functionality not currently available via managed services, or industry legislation may dictate tight control of your data. Whatever your requirements, Box UK will define an appropriate hosting plan leveraging cloud, physical and hybrid technologies as appropriate, along with any relevant test plans, migration considerations and additional training requirements.
Covering the key benefits WordPress offers over more traditional enterprise CMS solutions, and the considerations you’ll need to address should you choose to migrate, to ensure the success of your project.
Running seven country sites in six languages from a single installation, OKdo.com is a feature-rich, widely-integrated technology ecosystem that serves as a flagship example of enterprise WordPress and WooCommerce.
As OKdo’s IT partner, we delivered this project in just eight months, bringing to life a global ecommerce platform that would underpin the launch of their new business into two of the fastest-growing markets in the technology space.
To maintain their market position and guarantee the future growth of the business, Dexerto came to Box UK looking for support with a critically important re-platforming project.
Box UK quickly delivered a robust, adaptable and scalable WP Engine solution for the client – with improved AMP support, customised for Dexerto’s key advertising infrastructure. This platform now continues to be developed, in line with Dexerto’s aspirations for the future.
Working fully remotely with regional client stakeholders, the Box UK team developed a new set of ecommerce sites for RS Components targeting the Indonesia and Vietnam markets in just 9 sprints.
Providing access to over 50,000 products, the sites utilise the full power of WordPress and WooCommerce development, and are built on an innovative multi-site infrastructure to aid RS Components in further growing their international proposition in response to new demand and opportunities.
Enterprise hosting enables organisations to deliver their information, products and services to a global audience, providing a robust and scalable infrastructure – including servers, firewalls, racks and datacentres – from which websites, applications and other digital platforms can be served.
Managed hosting solutions are particularly popular in the enterprise, taking the responsibility for managing, monitoring and optimising this infrastructure away from the organisation to allow internal teams to focus on innovation, and delivering added value back into the business.
Working with a managed hosting provider also enables organisations to more easily plan for and accommodate traffic spikes and longer-term growth, using load balancing technology to quickly and easily scale your WordPress installation as required without impacting performance.
As WordPress has proven its capabilities in the enterprise – it is the most popular solution across primary and secondary enterprise CMS markets – there are many providers offering managed hosting services for the platform, delivering technical expertise as well as hosting solutions that are optimised specifically for WordPress, to maximise performance and security.
As an open source CMS, WordPress does not offer its own hosting services, and organisations have complete flexibility to find a solution that works for them. There are however numerous hosting providers on the market that specialise in the WordPress platform; this includes WordPress VIP from Automattic, the creators of WordPress.com.
Because WordPress VIP comes from the team behind of WordPress.com, there’s a direct line to core WordPress developers, as well as a host of other significant plugin and library maintainers, speeding up response times to expedite the resolution of issues and new feature requests.
