Our Task And Aproach
Our task was to ensure the stability and security of acidstag.com – one of largest, yet still independently run AU Music Scene blogs.
Upon completing a hosting & WordPress security audit – we were able to devise a hosting solution that would grow alongside the ever increasing readership.
The business problem we solved
- Website Stability – within increased national and international readers, the site needed to be able to handle periods when multiple users where engaged within the website for longer than 20 mins.
- Website Security & Performance – with increased traffic, FL3P needed to ensure that all plugins / custom add ons were not only secure – but also didn’t increase page loading time.
- A cloud based hosting environment – with the ability to look at instant scaling if the site was hit with excessive traffic.
What we did
Upon bringing the acidstag.com website into our development area – we noticed a lot more bugs were occuring. After some investigation, we found there was some coding errors within the site as it was hosted in an environment that wasn’t kept up to date. The cost effectively solution was to rebuild the base design of the website from a pre-existing framework that would ensure that acidstag.com was continually up to date! Since deploying to our cloud based hosting network – we’ve now been able to ensure a 99.97% uptime, even when 1000’s of visitors have been browsing the site within a two hour period!
