Of course, it’s worth mentioning that we are in the “Design District” of downtown Wakefield, which is exactly where we want to be.  Naturally, we fit right in, and there are some great businesses near us: including a massage therapist, landscaper, realty office, electrolysis, dance studios, kids ceramics, art studios, a few salons, vape shop, and lots more – just on our street alone.

The building we occupy is a stunning feat of architecture -if you visited our 333 tremont location, you’ll remember that it was completely circular, sprawling out across 14k square feet! We love Downtown Boston, and now we love the “small town charm” of Wakefield!

The wakefield headquarters does not disappoint, it’s also rounded on all corners, with master craftsmanship, circular skylights, and a modern art-deco Miami/SoCal design to it. In the first level it’s completley open format felx-space. On the second level we have hardwood floors, full kitchen, cool architecture, and a Solarium space in the back- which we are currently filling up with plants from the Boston Wholesale Flower Market.

Check out the photos!

New Server Build – Ludicrous Speed

Written by Douglas Perry on . Posted in AWS, BWG Updates, Server, Support, WordPress

At Boston Web Group, we’re always innovating and working on pushing the envelope of technology.

We’re pleased, no, ecstatic to announce our next-generation web hosting platform. Our R&D work with other clients has helped us develop a web hosting platform that is the fastest and most scalable hosting offered by a Boston-based digital agency.

Most web servers run on the LAMP stack: Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP; but Apache is so 1995.

Apache is the software that makes serving up websites possible. It’s been around for 20 years and is showing its age. It was designed during a time on the Internet when websites were simple and people danced the macarena.

The New BWG Hosting Platform

Our platform is different. It was built for today’s websites and performs to today’s expectations of speed and traffic handling. It supports cutting-edge technology like solid-state hard drives, PHP 7, HTTP/2, and on-the-fly code optimization for WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and other PHP-based websites. We offer an advanced cache technology that improves speed for Magneto sites by up to 35%.

It’s the best hosting platform we’ve built to date. It surpasses the offerings by the bigger hosting providers. Want in?

The chances are that you’re already on it, and you probably notice the speed increases already.  In fact, you may have been one of the few that had to call in and have some special tweaks done for your mail, server, or app hosting.  Well, we’re still fine tuning and tweak things under the hood daily, so let us know if you have issue or if you want to upgrade to faster hosting – we’ll custom define your hosting environment based on your website/APP’s needs.

If you want to learn more, give us a call at 855-355-SITE to get on the priority list. If you’ve been thinking of switching hosting providers, switch now and we’ll give you a FREE SSL certificate for a year.

We love our customers !
