How Earth Day Network Shaved Eight Seconds Off Page Load Time
Often times, companies decide to move to WordPress due to its ease of use for front end users. Not only does WordPress provide flexible development, but developers can also create a site and confidently pass it to their clients knowing they won’t struggle with using the interface to make content updates.
This is one reason why Earth Day Network decided to move their site (earthday.org) from Drupal to the more user-friendly WordPress. But when their hosting provider (who specializes in Drupal) started phasing out certain capabilities, Earth Day Network knew they needed to invest in WordPress experts.
According to their IT Director, Jason Gooljar, “In the past, we’ve experienced problems with moving web hosts near Earth Day and having the site go down.” In this case study, read about how Earth Day Network seamlessly migrated their site to WP Engine with zero downtime. In addition, find out how they shaved off eight seconds of page load time from the initial 11 seconds it took for their home page to fully render.
“WP Engine has such great staff and help with onboarding is the most important phase. This was the easiest site migration I’ve ever had to do.”
