WP Engine, the WordPress technology company, is extending its global presence and performance in APAC with the launch of new servers in Singapore.
This brings the power of WP Engine’s industry-leading WordPress platform closer than ever to our customers, partners, and their website visitors across Asia, further solidifying our commitment to their success.
Across APAC and around the world, a growing number of popular brands and agencies are reimagining their digital projects with WordPress and discovering the difference WP Engine can make as the best way to power creative freedom and agility.
By deploying our platform even closer to our customers in APAC, we hope to provide them with a significant reduction in round-trip latency. Data that is physically closer to our customers will help their sites load more quickly, and this performance increase will have a cascading effect on user experience and SEO.
We are excited for the opportunity to serve more businesses across Asia and the larger APAC region with tech innovation and award-winning WordPress experts, who already help to power more than 1.5 million sites across 150 countries.
A Trusted WordPress Partner
WP Engine has focused on optimizing WordPress sites for more than a decade, and throughout that period, WordPress has continued to grow and evolve into a powerful framework for building and managing websites.
Today, WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world. It’s user-friendly for content creators and developers, and it’s open source, which means WordPress is not only supported by an active community of users, it’s free from upfront and recurring licensing fees tied to the core software itself.
For site builders who rely on WordPress for their digital projects, WP Engine’s industry-leading platform provides performance optimizations and tuning for WordPress, and our portfolio of market-leading developer tools includes some of the most beloved and widely-used solutions in the WordPress ecosystem, including:
- Local, the #1 Local WordPress development tool
- Genesis, the #1 WordPress theme framework
- Atlas Content Modeler, which simplifies the development of content models for headless WordPress sites
- Advanced Custom Fields, WP Migrate, and additional WordPress builder plugins
While all of these tools can be used with any web host, WordPress builders who power their sites on WP Engine’s platform gain the added benefit of increased performance and managed maintenance, core updates, and security from a trusted WordPress partner, so they can focus on putting these tools to use.
In addition to the optimizations and security protocols that come standard with all of our plans, WP Engine provides solutions for advanced security, including Global Edge Security, which offers DDoS mitigation and a managed WAF, as well as Smart Plugin Manager, which automatically runs pre-scheduled plugin and theme updates to reduce the threat of unpatched vulnerabilities.
As we continue to invest in and grow our tools and technology, we look forward to working more closely with our new and existing customers in Singapore, the wider APAC region, and around the world as they build amazing digital experiences with WordPress.
