If you’re into blogging, then you know that WordPress is the most used blogging tool and platform out there. WordPress powers more than 30% of websites online starting from blogs to portfolios. WordPress has gained quite the success with website owners because it’s free, and it’s very scalable.
WordPress at first started as a blogging platform and was used by bloggers mainly. After a while and after a lot of alterations, WordPress evolved into a complete CMS platform that can power basically any website out there.
So, now that you’re building a website, you must be wondering if WordPress’s the right platform for you if you’re handling an ever-growing business, right? If that’s the case, then this article is perfect for you.
Why Is Scalability Important?
Scalability is a characteristic that represents the possibility for a system, a function, a model, or a website to grow and to expand due to an increasement of workload. So, that means scalability for a website is the possibility to welcome a large number of users when it has to and adapt to high traffic.
Websites & High Traffic
To be able to understand why scalability is important, one must know high traffic affects your website. High traffic can make your website slower, and sometimes unresponsive. High traffic can strain and block the severs used for your website by overloading them and creating “bottlenecks”.
So, this means that under high traffic, if your website isn’t scalable, it can actually end up unresponsive and thus result in the loss of a lot of users. So, this means that for your WordPress website to perform well under high traffic, it must serve all the users with minimum possible resources in order to give them what they’re looking for without creating bottlenecks.
In order to do that, you must have in place a great optimization strategy and have a great caching system that will make your website easy to load and fast.
Is WordPress Scalable?
Most website owners actually ask themselves this question at least once in their journey. Is WordPress scalable? And if it is, how scalable is it? Well, WordPress actually evolved from a simple blogging platform to a complete CMS platform that powers almost all kinds of websites. WordPress powers millions of websites online, and some of these websites have millions of visitors each month.
So, WordPress is actually very scalable. Your WordPress’s website can scale up depending on the high traffic, and depending on the resources you put in it. If you’re ready to pay hundreds of dollars each month for a hosting plan that will enable you to get millions of visitors, then yes WordPress’s scalability is limitless.
But, if you don’t have the money to invest in great hosting plans or expensive plugins, then WordPress won’t be that scalable for you, and you might not afford high traffic as it can do you more harm than good.
So, let’s take a look at what are the things that a website owner should keep an eye on when scaling their WordPress website.
- Media Resources
- Logging data
- Database loading
- Coding architecture
- HTTP requests
- Too many users
