Why We Chose Pantheon as Our Partner

Pantheon web hosting

All our sites are built with best-practice workflows on Pantheon. Here’s why you should keep it there.

Pantheon ensures your website will continue to perform at high speeds, with minimal need for support. The platform automatically does much of the work required to keep professional-grade Drupal sites fast, secure, and scalable.

Squeeze More ROI from Your Investment

Every dollar you spend on web development should contribute to the growth of your business. Using open-source CMS like Drupal brings you closer to that goal, as developers don't need to start from scratch. However, they must still spend many hours on system administration. Pantheon allows you to funnel 100% of your investment in web development directly to the high-value features and strategy that grow your business. And not just while your website is in development, but for its entire lifetime. 

The Fastest Platform for Websites.

Your business performance depends on your website performance. For every second visitors wait, conversions drop 7 percent. Pantheon is tuned to deliver the fastest performance possible. Third-parties like Loadstorm rate Pantheon as #1 in performance and reliability. The platform is so ridiculously fast that sites migrating from generic hosting see dramatic speed boosts instantly.

Be Impervious to Website Attacks

If you never want to be hacked, Pantheon is the platform of choice. Pantheon makes continuous platform-wide upgrades, so you don’t need to ask a developer about Heartbleed, Internet Doomsday, or other risks. Pantheon also enables your developers to quickly update your site with one click. No site that follows security best practices on Pantheon has ever been hacked, despite millions of attempts across tens of thousands of sites.

Save Billable Hours by Staying in Sync with Your Agency

One quick email to developers and we can log in and be working on a new feature at a moment’s notice. Identical environments keep work-in-progress separate from your live site, so you’ll never need to see screenshots or hand-drawn wireframes to know what developers are up to. See the test site exactly as it will appear when it’s live. Developers used to spend billable hours configuring these environments by hand. Now those hours can go straight into your features wish list.
