What do you like best?

They have a friendly, responsive, and effective support team Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I'm truly not happy with is that, recently, I've realized that a large portion of my life revolves around accounts held by two very large technology company's that I don't fully trust: Amazon (AWS) and Google.

I have taken steps to reduce the amount of Amazon in my life -- Google has proven to be much more difficult -- but I can't find a way to get off AWS without leaving Pagely and I'm simply not willing to do that.

This isn't a huge problem, it's really more philosophical than anything and it doesn't seem realistic to me for Pagely to have some other backend. But still... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before Pagely, our web servers took up quite a bit of my time to keep stable. Since switching I haven't had much need to worry about our servers or website stability. It just works (as promised) which has not been my experience with several other webhosting companies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the options menu interface and easy installation on the server for WordPress, it is fast and totally dedicated to this service. The support helps to solve all the problems that my system presents.

Server speed and optimization for this system is perfect for new connected users, dedicated DNS servers are stable and fast. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have no problems with this service, but the Premium package is expensive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend this system; the Premium offers dedicated support and fast DNS to always have 100% activity. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this stable service to host my WordPress without problems, I control visits, security, hackers, DDoS, I visualize the problems with Pagely's graphics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Pagely's support team is very fast to respond to queries and their solutions and assistance is top-notch. I needed something done, that I didn't have access to, and they took care of it within minutes of my enquiry. They always to above and beyond to make sure customers are taken care of. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do have a bit of a problem with the 2-factor authentication to login to the Atomic dashboard, but that's just a minor petty thing. I really don't have anything bad to say about Pagely, especially the support team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a very complex WordPress website, that uses not only the default WP database, but also an external database, which was quite tricky connecting to from Pagely. We find that the HA service is very beneficial to us when we expect a high traffic load. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The support staff is some of the best in the industry. From answering questions about our environment to solving complex issues, I can rely on Pagely to be my DevOps instead of having to have an internal DevOps. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The new Atomic (management interface) is a little buggy, but it's been slowly getting better with more and more features being added in. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As mentioned above, I can rely on Pagely to be my DevOps and SysAdmins. This cuts down on my staffing and with 24 hour support, I know I can get in touch with them at any time of day. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

No matter how much WordPress changes, no matter how little or much time I have to spend on site maintenance, I never have to worry about any Pagely-hosted sites I work with having problems not caused directly by site users or developers.

And even then it's easy to correct mistakes with help from Pagely's team.

It's like a safety net, which takes a lot of worry off my plate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

You certainly get what you pay for here, but I suppose I could complain about the price? Feels like I'm nitpicking here, because the value is certainly there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's worth the money never to have to worry. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No matter what I choose to host, whether old podcast episodes, years-old posts about my ingrown toenails, or portfolio pieces of my work, there's never a time I have to worry about my site getting shut down by some wayward update or incompatible "upgrade."

It just...works. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The platform is simple to use, secure and reliable. We have never once had any sort of breach. The load speeds are amazing! But, best of all, customer support is fantastic! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

No phone support! And way more expensive than the competition. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The customer service is world class. The handling of issues is almost immediate. The technical team at Pagely is kind enough to go beyond the scope of work and assist us with site issues that are not hosting related. For someone focused on sales and business development I cannot afford to dedicate time to attend to technical issues on our site. Hence I count on Pagely to keep my site online and swiftly fix issues when they arise. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing much really. Atomic Beta a feels a bit too minimalist at times. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Pagely may sound expensive at first. Once you understand well what comes with the package you realize you invested well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Pagely I don't need a dedicated website support staff. This saves us headcount costs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The support team from Pagely is Level= AWESOME!

We have been working with them for a couple of years now and the amount of knowledge they have on Wordpress and their platform can not be found anywhere else (maybe at Wordpress itself).

The support team is always willing to go the extra mile to get all your needs solved. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Actually there is nothing I can think of right now. At first you may dislike the pricing in comparison with othre WP providers, but let me tell you they are not playing in the same league. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are running large scale WP websites for television networks.

I'm not super familiar with Pagely, but I've had pleasant experiences when it comes to the technology support for it. I like that my tickets are responded to usually within a day and they assist to the point of following up on service thereafter. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

My company runs a blog site using WordPress. I think it's connected with Pagely somehow, whether that's backing up the site or maintenance or something connected with that. I'm not sure. Pagely solves customer support issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The levels of support at Page.ly are always beyond my expectations. Rather than simply point you at some terse knowledgebase the support team work with you to solve any issue you may have. Their knowledge is excellent and Page.ly has often simply fixed the problem and then checked for any other related issues and fixed them as well. It feels like you have a dedicated SysOps team working with you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The nature of their Managed Platform means that a lot of the detail is not available to the end user and the server access via SSH is a little awkward. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is, perhaps, more expensive than you are used to but you will not regret paying for the piece of mind that Page.ly provide. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

High-Performance hosting of Wordpress publishing sites in a multisite configuration. Page.ly have outperformed every other host we have ever used in every category that matters. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Uptime has been truly 100% except for a couple of very brief scheduled maintenance windows. Pagely even lets you choose your own maintenance window so you can minimize impact to your visitors. The support team goes above and beyond and they are all truly knowledgeable. They listen when you provide feedback and are frequently making improvements, such as adding phpMyAdmin where they didn't have it before, and now allowing users to set up SSH keys themselves where before it required a support ticket. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish there were an easier way to push between staging and production. There is a "Pagely Sync" tool you can use from SSH which is very helpful, but would be much better if they integrated this into their control panel. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need WordPress hosting and your budget allows for it, don't hesitate to try Pagely. They migrate sites for free and will help you in so many ways. It's truly set it and forget it - they handle all core, plugin, and theme updates. If you can't quite stomach the budget, SiteGround is an excellent shared host alternative. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pagely has kept our sites stable. Prior to using them we were using a local agency for hosting and the sites kept going down. It was due to their staff not realizing the plugins they'd installed added so many transients to the database it crashed the server. Pagely is great at identifying the real cause of any problems you submit in support tickets and giving you a real, actionable answer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Constant backups are available for multiple days in the past. WordPress is kept updated, and the site speed is super-fast, especially compared to those discount hosting plans at other companies.

Service is excellent, fast and responsive and I actually feel that they care, I am not a number I am treated as a client with respect and my questions answered in full. Even though my questions could have been asked 10000 times before, I feel that the reply is specifically designed for me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The fact they are in a different time zone, so sometimes I have had to wait until the team get in and start processing the issues to get a response and reply.

Being East of the team means that I may have an issue that causes a problem for several hours before It's solved and having a dev team in Manilla also adds to the delays Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Support hours to follow the sun as we are to the west of your company, and we have a dev team in Manilla, we can be waiting for an answer, that in fact is dealt with very quickly when you get in, but we have been working for several hours before we get the answer.

We also work weekends when needed and sometime, understandably, your team has left to go home. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hosting 4 dev sites and back up..not used the capacity yet as these are just dev sites, we have not released these to the public yet so we have not yet benefited from the local storage speed applications or needed to use the backup system which is good news really, but nice to have Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

After hosting Wordpress sites elsewhere, Pagely was a revelation. Their Atomic Core dashboard is a well-designed view into the status and performance of all our sites.
