Pagely Alternative

Pagely vs. Convesio

Are you looking for a Pagely alternative that can scale as your WordPress site traffic grows? Try Convesio, a managed hosting platform. We're a WordPress web hosting service designed for scalability, speed, and security in mind. Powered by the latest AWS and Google Cloud servers and using Docker containers, Convesio is truly the next generation of WordPress hosting.


Do You Need to Scale?

Pagely is essentially a very optimized VPS hosting service. You are still dependent on a single server’s resources, although the upper tiered (“High Availability”) plans do offer multiple servers. Due to Pagely’s model, it is somewhat difficult to upgrade your resources. To do so,  you need to upgrade to a more expensive plan. There is also no auto scaling available. 

So, if you want to handle higher levels of traffic, you need to pick a Pagely WordPress hosting plan that covers the highest peak of traffic – and not just the average amount. If you get more traffic than that, there are no quick solutions to fix it easily.

Convesio, on the other hand, doesn’t rely on a single server for your WordPress site. Our managed WordPress hosting service uses clusters of multiple servers, which allow your site to quickly scale far above your current plan. This happens in seconds and you only pay for the extra resources as you’re using them and not all month.

With Convesio’s managed WordPress hosting platform, you’re never locked into a more expensive, high-resource plan. You don’t need to migrate, upgrade your server, or change your plan to scale up and meet your increased traffic demand. Best of all, you get this on every account at Convesio without any extra charges. This makes us a solid choice if you’re looking for a Pagely alternative.

See Auto Scaling In Action

Auto scaling allows your site to scale up resources during high-traffic events, then scale back down when the traffic has subsided.

See how easy it is to set up auto scaling on Convesio’s managed WordPress hosting platform.

Any Questions?

Convesio is a good choice if you’re looking for a Pagely alternative. We’ve transferred many WordPress sites from Pagely to our hosting platform. Click the chat button below and we’ll happily answer any questions you may have.


Old School vs. Cutting-Edge

Convesio’s unique technology utilizes Docker containers to create a fast performing Managed WordPress hosting platform. This is a totally new approach that other WordPress hosting providers like Pagely do not implement.

Unlike Pagely, Convesio is datacenter agnostic. That means we support a variety of different datacenter companies, including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Digital Ocean, and Steadfast. Pagely is only available on Amazon infrastructure. As such, if you don’t want to use AWS, you should consider a Pagely alternative – like Convesio.

  • Pagely is geared primarily towards larger businesses and enterprise clients.
  • Pagely has its own CDN and doesn’t include Cloudflare Enterprise by default. This means you will need to pay extra for it.
  • Pagely’s plans allow you to host multiple sites, but the SSD and bandwidth allocation limits are very low when divided among multiple sites.
  • On Pagely, site monitoring is only available on Premium and Enterprise plans.
  • Pagely is limited to Amazon infrastructure.
  • Convesio’s WordPress hosting is perfect for growing websites that need consistent performance, even when surges in traffic occur.
  • Convesio offers a free Cloudflare integration, which includes an enterprise-level firewall with built-in DDoS protection. This is uncommon for the average hosting provider.
  • Convesio offers full-page caching on the edge using Cloudflare Enterprise for all Business plans and higher.
  • Convesio provides clarity in pricing with all available features included in one easy price. We provide generous storage and bandwidth with each plan with nominal fees for exceeding limits.
  • Sites on Convesio are equipped with a self-healing PHP feature, and we monitor all sites on our infrastructure for uptime every one minute.
  • Convesio offers six types of backups: free automatic/daily, optional hourly, manual, system-generated, downloadable, and external backups sent automatically to your Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage.

Keep Your Site Safe and Secure

The security of your data is important and we’re a hosting provider that considers it to be a top priority. Our team takes many active measures to keep you safe from prying eyes or malicious code injections by taking advantage on latest technologies available in software engineering

All sites on Convesio are protected by our free Cloudflare Enterprise integration, which includes an enterprise-level firewall with a custom ruleset and DDoS protection. With our Cloudflare integration, you’ll get the benefits of enhanced security and performance without having to manage your own Cloudflare account.

  • While Pagely offers a robust solution to secure WordPress websites, you will have to spend time and effort to make your site even more secure and invest in 3rd party tools to increase the level of security. As such, if you don’t want to spend extra time and money on security solutions, consider a Pagely alternative like Convesio or another managed WordPress hosting platform.

  • Web Application Firewall
  • DDoS Protection
  • Automated Malware Scanning
  • Email Filtering
  • 2FA (Two-Factor Authentication)
  • Intrusion Prevention System
  • 24/7 Monitoring
  • SSL Certificates
  • Continuous security patching
  • Monitoring sites every one minutes for uptime, 1440 times a day.
  • Real-time DDoS attack detection and mitigation.
  • Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) support, and automatic bans for IPs that with rate limiting in effect from Cloudflare.
  • A dedicated Security Team to address malicious attackers, hacks, and exploits and will manually clean your site and identify plugins with issues.
  • Automated backups for all plans, so you never lose your site or data. We also store two weeks of backups at all times, with the possibility to increase data retention.
  • Only support for encrypted SFTP and SSH connections (no FTP).
  • Free Cloudflare SSL certificates with wildcard domain support.
  • Automatic security checks for every plugin installed to discover vulnerabilities and/or security issues leveraging Patchman and Monarx AI to identify malware and insecurities.

Can You Afford Enterprise-Level Prices?

Pagely has very steep pricing plans that start at $199 per month for the barebones plan. It also takes longer to get your site live on Pagely’s WordPress hosting. 

Convesio starts at $50 per month – and this includes premium extras like Redis Object Cache Pro, Cloudflare Enterprise, and expert support on Slack.


Pagely is primarily designed for enterprise businesses, making the entry bar quite high. The pricing plans are fairly limited with large jumps in price between them. You also will need to pay even for extra resources, even if you don’t use them.

  • Support for PerconaDB and MariaDB

What Our Clients Are Saying


Generic vs. Personal Support

Pagely is owned by GoDaddy. While they have a large team and plenty of resources, Pagely doesn’t offer premium support on Slack. 

With Convesio, you can get WordPress support with a quick turnaround time. You’ll never have to wait more than 30 seconds for a response from our team of experts! We provide 24/7 chat assistance and access via Slack, which allows us to resolve technical issues – without filing tickets or waiting for tier escalation support.

Plus, Convesio can be on-call for specific high-traffic events, like a product launch or live event. We also help our clients make the right decision while choosing a WordPress hosting plan. We can perform load tests and troubleshooting using New Relic to determine the amount of resources you’ll need..Once you’ve decided to switch to Convesio, we also offer free white glove migrations from Pagely and from other hosting providers. Migrations to Convesio are handled by an expert WordPress developer, and your site will have minimal downtime and no data loss during the process.


Our Promise

Our platform delivers the performance you need at scale. But we also know that there are 100 different things that can go wrong. If they do, support is just one click away - 24/7. We'll do whatever it takes to help. Not upsell you to a more expensive plan.

The Final Decision: Convesio vs. Pagely

At this point, you should have a pretty good understanding of the differences between Convesio and Pagely. 

Convesio offers a complete Managed WordPress Hosting solution.  Our “secret sauce” is auto scaling and we make it super easy to quickly handle high amounts of traffic. Best of all, our pricing model is very inclusive and transparent. We won’t surprise you with an extra bill.

On the other hand, Pagely is a solid choice for larger, enterprise-level sites. It offers limited pricing plans and doesn’t come with many third-party tools by default. They do have some powerful technology, but it is very expensive and harder to customize for your particular scenario.
