Hosting & Security
Powerful, Flexible Infrastructure
Built on the back of Amazon Web Services, we have fine-tuned enterprise grade hosting for WordPress.
Load balancing, caching, backups, SSL, change management, and more. Our hosting environment is built with the needs of Higher Ed customers specifically in mind.
We take care of all software updates and monitor for any signs of security concerns.
Optional CloudFlare protection can aid with DDOS mitigation and site performance.
Automated logging, manual code inspections, and routine audits round out our security practices.

How is this better than just WordPress?
We include way better tools for moderation, content filtering, class management, network administration, and privacy baked right in. Plus, no headaches, no down time, and no upgrades to manage.
What about hosting, safety, and security?
Our server network is hosted in state-of-the-art data centers and we employ the latest technologies and monitoring resources available to keep everything running smoothly and out of harms way. Our cache and performance optimization tools in place keep everything fast too – so go viral, we can handle the traffic!
How is support provided?
We will work with you to meet your needs, including setting up web-based or in-person trainings, handling all end-user support directly, and much more.
What type of sites do you host?
WordPress and CampusPress have evolved tremendously from a traditional blogging service to a full featured web platform. We host networks with a focus on academic blogging, faculty sites, research labs, ePortfolios, and even main department, college, or university websites.
What if we already use WordPress?
Even better! We have migrated dozens of networks that started off self-hosting but needed to switch services as their platforms grew. With our focus on the security and scalability of your network, we’ll plan out a migration timeline and review your current network to ensure a smooth transition.
What single-sign-on options are available?
At no extra cost, we can authenticate using LDAP, Shibboleth (we’re a member of the InCommon Federation), CAS, and several other custom SSO solutions.
How can we use our own branding?
CampusPress is an entirely white label solution that can be customized to keep your look and meet your style guidelines. By adding custom themes, you can keep a consistent look and feel for all sites created too.
Can I learn more about the free trial?
We’ll set you up with a fully functional site that students and faculty can use just as you would had you purchased a license. Best of all, should you decide to sign-up, you’ll be able to keep everything going with no need to start over from scratch. No obligation or commitment.
