Twodot Marketing is a digital marketing company, designed to help small businesses create a presence on the web without breaking the budget.
Need for speed
Before Rocket, they were hosting their WordPress websites on various hosting companies; they just could not get the speed and security for their clients that they were after. Twodot’s marketing business heavily relies on fast loading websites to ensure the best possible SEO and CPA’s for their clients. Another critical factor is website security; if a customer’s website is infected or hacked, it will severely impact their business and reputation, and client Ad spend (revenue generation).
Unhappy with the overall performance (even when using a CDN for static assets on top of their premium hosting) for the price they were paying led CEO Joshua Etheridge to find something better. While the majority of hosting companies talk about boosting your performance by 2-3x, Josh knew they were ultimately providing the same solution on Google Cloud.
I came across Rocket and had a great conversation about their CDN and full page caching capabilities. After learning more about how the Rocket Platform works, I knew I had to give it a shot. Within one hour of signing up, I had my first site migrated, and I was blown away. I instantly noticed a HUGE difference in my page speed, time to first byte, and just overall responsiveness of our company website. 24 hours later, we had all of our customers live on Rocket receiving the same great benefits.
Securing WordPress is always a struggle. ZeroDay exploits, Malware, and Vulnerabilities are daily threats to all WordPress sites, no matter their size or niche. Rocket has provided Twodot with a full Website Security Suite at no additional cost for each WordPress website.
“Having an Enterprise WAF and real-time malware scanning on every website is a game changer. Previously we had to purchase expensive third-party plugins and maintain them; today, Rocket handles all of that for us… ultimately leading to a huge cost and time savings for us and our customers.”
Rocket automatically includes an Enterprise Web Application Firewall powered by Cloudflare on every WordPress installation. On top of the Enterprise WAF, we have a local WAF and real-time Malware scanning to further protect the local WordPress install from brute force attacks, malware, weak password creation, bots, and much more.
“Rocket’s support has been absolutely incredible. Not only are they extremely knowledgeable when it comes to hosting, but they’re WordPress experts.”
On September 1, 2020 there was a major exploit in the WordPress File Manager plugin  affecting over 700,000 WordPress users. Rocket was able to automatically protect all of Twodot’s websites from this attack.
Another big headache is support when you need it. Rocket truly provides 24x7x365 support via live chat, email, and phone.
“Rocket’s support has been absolutely incredible. Not only are they extremely knowledgeable when it comes to hosting, but they’re WordPress experts. They made several recommendations for our plugin configuration to achieve maximum performance. They’re also very knowledgeable when it comes to CDN, I definitely learned a thing or two!”
Rocket is extremely customer centric and passionate about customer success. We build a strong relationship with our customers as we know they’re here to do business with us for years to come.
