Security

Pagely emphases security and protection above all else. Pagely offers their custom Security solution referred to as "PressAromor", a custom security architecture developed by Pagely. PressArmor is NOT a plugin, but an enterprise wide topology that’s designed to prevent threat vectors instead of dealing with them after an attack.

There are many VPS hosting providers and there are many Wordpress hosting providers. What Pagely offers is a VPS environment for Wordpress. The service includes VPS plan optimized for Wordpress only. This could be an ideal solution for clients looking for full control over their WordPress blogs without worrying on speed optimization or performance.

Developer Tools

Just like other leading providers, Pagely also comes with toolset including SSH access, Git, Staging and WP-CLI. However, these tools are currently available to dedicated Wordpress VPS plans only. So Business, Professional and Ultimate subscribers can’t access or use them along with several other restrictions on features.

Conclusion

Pagely can be an effective choice for any enterprise, business, or small startup that is concerned about their blog’s security or performance. However, it should be noted that, they’re relying completely on Amazon’s data centers and don’t have their own. However, AWS providers highly reliable and performance oriented servers.

Another benefit of Pagely is their different hosting plans, and their open-ended scalability would be optimal for any size business or organization. They have scalability for larger organizations and a low price of entry for smaller organizations.
