Why you deserve a (WordPress) VIP experience

Whether or not you’ve used it, you’ve heard of WordPress

It’s one of the first content management systems (CMS) to hit the market in the early 2000s and it made building and hosting a website more accessible than ever. To this day, it remains the most popular CMS out there with over 43% of all websites (roughly 810 million) built on the platform. And now, it’s changing the game again.

In January we announced that Studio Science has become a “Silver Agency Partner” with WordPress VIP. For 25 years, we’ve used our human-centered design expertise to create one-of-a-kind WordPress websites that are uniquely designed with our clients’ end user in mind throughout the entire process. As we’ve continued to grow our business at a rapid rate and our clients have become larger, more sophisticated, and robust companies, the need for a more robust CMS was necessary.

Contrary to what some may believe, it’s not the features of a website that differentiate companies in the market – it’s the end-user experience. That’s why we became a WordPress VIP partner. This relationship allows us to help companies provide better overall digital experiences that will surely drive scalable growth.

At Studio Science, we don’t believe technology is an end-all-be-all (in fact, sometimes there’s such a thing as too much of it). It can, however, be a powerful tool when used the right way. With our human-centered approach and WordPress VIP’s agile content platform built on a solid enterprise-grade foundation, we’ll help your customers connect and engage with your brand on a deeper level through a seamless and holistic experience. 

While we love WP Engine and it remains a trusted option for many of our existing clients, there are significant differences between WP Engine and WordPress VIP. These include:


WP Engine vs WordPress VIP

  • Security: A single breach can have massive financial impacts to your company. VIP keeps you secure when WP Engine can’t. 
  • Higher Performance & Scalability: Are you ready for the next giant spike in traffic? VIP built its platform to ensure that on your biggest day and every day, your site delivers unparalleled speed for users all over the world. (Fun Fact: On Election Week 2020, when FiveThirtyEight delivered 1.3B pageviews and spiked to 132,000 requests per second, VIP kept them up and running.)
  • Large-scale site management: WordPress VIP takes care of even the most complex enterprise-scale sites. With WP Engine, your technical staff will spend far more time and resources on routine maintenance tasks. 
  • Deeper support: When you need support, you get it with WordPress VIP. WP Engine acts like a traditional hoster, whereas VIP acts like a partner to help you through your key issues, ensuring faster time-to-market with your releases. 


While this list is not exhaustive, it will give you a good idea of what VIP has to offer and why we chose to forge such a strategic partnership that will greatly benefit our clients.

Because at the end of the day, we believe you all deserve a VIP experience (and status).
