Advantages Of Hosting Your WordPress Site on Google Cloud Engine

Here are some of the best reasons to host your WordPress website Google Cloud.

Analyze your site performance

Use Google’s PageSpeed Insights Test

With PageSpeed Insights you can identify ways to make your site faster and more mobile-friendly.

Page Speed Insights measures the performance of a page for mobile devices and desktop devices. It fetches the url twice, once with a mobile user-agent, and once with a desktop-user agent.

The PageSpeed Score ranges from 0 to 100 points. A higher score is better and a score of 85 or above indicates that the page is performing well. Please note that PageSpeed Insights is being continually improved and so the score will change as we add new rules or improve our analysis.

PageSpeed Insights measures how the page can improve its performance on:

  • time to above-the-fold load: Elapsed time from the moment a user requests a new page and to the moment the above-the-fold content is rendered by the browser.
  • time to full page load: Elapsed time from the moment a user requests a new page to the moment the page is fully rendered by the browser.

Speed Up Your Load Times

It won’t be false if I say that Google runs the Internet. You have to be on top of your game if you want to rank on the top at Google. Speed, for ranking purposes, is one of the major aspects. Therefore, it always tries to keep things speedy and you can experience that on its infrastructure too. Additionally, add this cloud infrastructure to the ThunderStack powered Platform of Cloudways, you get blazing speeds that are unmatched within the Managed Cloud Hosting industry.

In terms of speed, cloud hosting experts rate GCE amongst the top tier. Just look at the following network performance stats reported by ServerDensity.

Uptime

According to a study done on the performance of cloud infrastructure providers, the downtime of GCE was just 3.46 hours. This shows that Google Cloud Engine was available for more than 99.9% of the times. Hosting your WordPress website on GCE means continuous uptime with little (or no) hiccups.

 

Scalability

GCE servers are highly scalable and able to handle traffic spikes with ease. Using the scaling feature on Cloud Console, you can easily change the size of your service without changing the IP address. When on Cloudways, you can monitor your server performance and scale up your server according to the traffic income.
