What is Shifter? Shifter seamlessly transforms your WordPress site into a series of static HTML files, so you can concentrate on the day-to-day without having to worry about maintenance, server updates, or scalability.
First time ever? Yes. Shifter would be the first commercially available Serverless hosting solution for WordPress.
How? Shifter is built entirely with AWS, Docker, and the Serverless Framework. Our developers are using the latest technology available to introduce something entierly new to WordPress.
Why Shifter? Only Shifter delivers the built-in security and adaptability of WordPress with the breakneck speed of static technology.
Serverless Architecture. Static web pages are nearly maintenance-free, load at lightning speed, and allow for unlimited scalability.
Built for WordPress. Shifter allows WordPress to do what it does best, easily managing your content while keeping your site secure.
Extreme Speed. Static HTML files make PHP and MySQL obsolete, so content can be delivered to your user’s screen at lightning speed no matter where they are in the world.
Durability. Static files guarantee a high-performance website that won’t fail or slow down due to increased traffic.
Safety + Security. The CDN only stores static files, so you don’t have to stress about weaknesses or security holes in your server, WordPress plugins, or PHP.
Maintenance-Free. When you shift your site to static, WordPress disappears, and so do concerns for system vulnerabilities.
Why Kickstarter? Our goal is to develop more features for everyone. We can make Shifter something any WordPress user, developer, or Serverless advocate would enjoy. With your support, these features in the Shifter development roadmap will become a reality.
