Why Sentree?

What is Sentree?

Sentree is web hosting, but it’s also much more than that.

First, we’ve ratcheted web hosting to the cutting edge, delivering a level of performance and security that’s hard to come by. We’ve accomplished this with a winning combination of clustered servers, dual web application firewalls, Content Delivery Networks, redundant caching, optional automatic asset compression and concatenation, and even multiple data centers spread around the globe.

Next, we took into account the unique needs presented by Content Management Systems (WordPress & Drupal). It’s estimated that nearly 50% of websites run on a CMS, and of those, more than 50% run on WordPress. For good reason, too – WordPress presents a stellar feature set combined with a phenomenal ease of use. With such a high percentage of the web built on this platform, though, it has become a challenge to secure it against the growing tide of hackers and malware. Enter Sentree. Our hosting service is combined with features tailored to WordPress (and Drupal, too!), keeping it safe, secure, and speedy. We perform all vulnerability updates for you, monitor uptime, scan for malware, limit admin access by IP address, back up the site daily, and even manually review the site each time we install updates.

We’ve managed to do all this while still keeping our entry-level plan at roughly the cost of a meal out for 1 each month. What’s more, our service is risk free, so you can cancel within 30 days for a full refund, or any time for a prorated refund. Keep reading to learn how we stack up against the competition!
