The CourseLauncher Platform utilizes Pagely® Managed WordPress hosting. Their stack is built upon Amazon Web Services. Simply, this allows us to leverage a near infinite amount of resources and advanced tooling to scale and support your CourseLauncher site.


Optimized for WordPress

WordPress has a very specific resource footprint and usage pattern. Pagely has developed specific technologies and systems to scale and secure your CourseLauncher site.


Latency and Geographical targeted routing for your WordPress site.

PressDNS™ by Pagely works with their PressCACHE™ system to route requests, at the DNS level, to any of their global cache nodes (geo-routing). Powered by Amazon's route 53 service PressDNS™ makes it simple to take advantage of geo balancing and geo routing.


A global network of DNS routed cache nodes explicitly designed to serve WordPress page output. Your site, available instantly, from anywhere.

PressCACHE™ by Pagely is a global WordPress acceleration system. It works much like a CDN, but specifically designed to cache and serve WordPress page output.

Essentially, a request for your website is routed to one of Pagely's global PoPs (Point of Presence) closest to the user. This shortens the distance between the user and your website thereby speeding up the load time of your site to a global audience.


Photos, images, and static assets served from a global network of servers. Faster download speeds for your site visitors.

PressCDN™ is Pagely's CDN built specifically for WordPress, and is powered by backend providers that include MaxCDN. That means your static assets are served according to the provider which has the closest location to your site’s particular visitor. For example, if your visitor happens to be accessing your site from Chennai India, your static assets may be served by Amazon Edge, since they have a location there. Having multiple providers on the backend means more efficiency and faster load times for your users.


A comprehensive security architecture developed by Pagely® that hardens and protects their network, hardware, and WordPress applications. The primary focus is on prevention and the mitigation of risk to clients.

Secure WordPress Hosting is just how Pagely does business. For base level security, they utilize a dynamic web application firewall (WAF) that blocks code injection attacks, known exploits and rate limits access attempts. This greatly reduces the chance of a DDoS attack or Brute force attack succeeding.

On top of the above, Pagely also practices chroot user separation and real-time system malware scanning. Scanning for malware means they’re constantly looking for things like trojan horses, viruses, worms, keyloggers, spyware, and adware. Additional rulesets at their network edge filter out much of the nefarious traffic long before it even has a chance to pass into their network.
