Skyrocket Performance Up To 126% With Our New High Frequency Hosting Plans

G2 Spring Awards 2023 - How WPMU DEV Performed

The newest and fastest architecture available in our hosting range, discover the incredible performance benefits of our revolutionary High Frequency hosting plans.

As if our award-winning and highly rated managed hosting wasn’t already amazing enough…

Now we’ve taken it to the next level by introducing 7 brand new High Frequency (HF) plans that give a whole new meaning to performance.

What makes these plans different? How powerful are they? And why should you consider High Frequency Hosting?

All is answered in this article, as we give you the lowdown on our newest high-octane creations and put them to the ultimate test.

Here’s what we’re covering:

What is High Frequency Hosting?

Over the years, we’ve introduced many new plans to our hosting lineup, but these High Frequency plans are an entirely different beast.

Because although they’re built on the same powerful infrastructure as our other plans, they have a completely different hardware setup.

This is what sets these plans apart and allows them to handle more traffic load, perform tasks at a higher speed, and execute operations more effectively (more on that soon).

Here’s a quick look at the next generation technology behind our HF plans:

3GHz+ Intel Xeon CPUs

High Frequency plans are powered by blazing-fast 3GHz+ Intel Xeon processors that are made specifically for sites requiring uncompromising performance.

This cutting edge processor greatly outperforms standard CPUs, which for context, typically fall within the 2GHz range.

NVMe SSD storage

Having next level CPU speed doesn’t mean much if your local disk storage can’t keep up.

This is the advantage of NVMe SSD storage, which unlike regular SSD storage, has the capacity to match the enhanced CPU throughput.

Combine these two hardware elements, and you have a recipe for high-performance architecture that seamlessly handles increasing requests and maintains reliability as your hosted site’s workload continues to grow.

You and your clients also get to enjoy the following benefits:

  • Better and faster user experiences – Superior CPU and disk performance ensures smooth and blazing-fast user experiences with absolute minimal site downtime and disruption.
  • Scale hosting seamlessly – HF servers are designed to accommodate and effortlessly scale with increasing website demand. Plan upgrades are also easy and affordable.
  • Stand out from the crowd – Give your hosting services a competitive edge and target clients seeking high-performance solutions.

But enough about the tech and what performance benefits High Frequency ‘should’ give you.

Next, we will truly put them to the test, so you can see how powerful they really are for yourself.

Putting High Frequency To The Test

Before launching these new plans to the world we had to be sure they lived up to their name.

So, our expert hosting team arranged a set of tests to see how these plans performed in real-world scenarios compared to our regular plans.

We decided to test two crucial categories when it comes to hosting performance: CPU performance and disk performance.

Here’s how it went down:

CPU Performance: High Frequency vs Regular Hosting


For the first two tests in the CPU performance category, we simulated multiple people visiting our website’s cached and uncached home page using the ‘Maintain client load’ method.

For the third test we simulated users adding a product to their cart on our website multiple times using this same load method.

All three tests involved scaling up page visitors to a targeted max client count, specific to each plan, within five minutes. During this time, each client repeatedly made requests, simulating high-traffic website use.

The best plans handle more requests and have a lower (faster) average response time.

Here’s how it all went down:
