Atlas: The Future of Headless WordPress

The complete Headless WordPress Platform for absurdly fast dynamic sites

Achieve unprecedented performance with modern frameworks and the world’s #1 open source CMS in one powerful headless platform.

One headless solution. One price. All in one place.

Atlas includes dynamic Node.js and Headless WordPress in one package with your choice of modern framework. No haggling with multiple vendors on pricing, build requirements, or troubleshooting. Work with one trusted partner in WP Engine, recognized globally for award-winning customer service excellence.


Transformative performance

WP Engine is already the fastest Managed WordPress platform on the planet with a proprietary global network that drives unprecedented speed. Adding Atlas and Node.js to the stack increases speed by another order of magnitude, executing pages up to 10X faster than traditional WordPress. Developers can build personalized, omni-channel, back-end integrated experiences with blazing speeds as fast as static sites.*

Flexible and modern headless architecture

Atlas delivers support for everything the modern developer wants: multiple server-side environments, auto-deployments from GitHub branches, both static and dynamic headless architectures, your choice of JavaScript framework — React, Angular, Vue.js or any other — and command-line that is 100% scriptable.


Enterprise-grade security

Decoupled front-ends served from an edge network are more secure from DDOS and other brute force attacks. Atlas goes further and provides both automated and manual backups to help protect your WordPress data. Atlas websites are not just faster for your preferred customers, but they are also more resilient from attack from bad actors.

The world’s #1 feature-rich CMS

By bringing WordPress into the world of Headless, Atlas is rescuing content publishers from losing essential features not available with other headless CMSs. Features like post previews, SEO optimizations, and layouts and pages the content publisher can control. With Atlas, the front-end and back-end work seamlessly together so developers and marketers can easily build, design and publish in harmony.
