How Helpotkotisivut.fi created a scalable hosting environment for WordPress and WooCommerce

Helpotkotisivut.fi MS Oy is a Helsinki based WordPress website design agency that concentrates on providing robust and user-friendly WordPress website hosting and web design services as a turnkey solution, mainly for Finnish customers.

The company was founded originally in 2013 and has since grown to be a half a million-euro business by revenue in eight years and is still hungry for growth. Today’s clients expect quality balanced with their cost expectations and we can offer the best solution in the market. UpCloud’s incredibly fast servers and very reliable hardware, bundled with almost 100% uptime, have not let us down.

Previous challenges

Managing WordPress sites in a shared environment is always a challenge as there are so many diverse websites and eCommerce sites. Therefore, hardware requirements, SLA and basic functionalities must support the business for us and our clients.

Initially, we tried to set up managed cloud services with a couple of known Finnish companies but there was always something missing. Either their services were down, or our customer’s server was unavailable when it was not supposed to be. Utilizing UpCloud’s server infrastructure is just stress-free and relatively affordable in relation to what you get compared to most of the competitors. Those are the core reasons why we chose UpCloud as our long-term partner.

Hosting on UpCloud

The adjustability of server resources is important to us as our client numbers grow on the server level and upgrading them on demand in UpCloud’s Control Panel is super easy. We have never had any hardware troubles after setting up cloud services in UpCloud and are proud to make use of renewable energy while still providing supreme hosting services for our client’s needs. UpCloud’s local data centres in Helsinki, Finland, enable ultimate speed benefits, especially for our domestic end-users.

The super fast MaxIOPS block storage helps us and our clients to quickly perform read and write operations in our hosting environment. It is also a crucial factor for us in achieving the best possible competitive performance. We use the Plesk environment on almost all of our servers. These are running on an enterprise-grade solution using Litespeed which also gives our clients additional processing efficiency in terms of DBMS CRUD and other web application operations. Meanwhile,  Litespeed also helps us to manage services conveniently.

Improvements

Our web hosting has never been as carefree as with UpCloud. Troubles related to hardware, service SLA or performance are in history. This all together makes it possible for us to focus our efforts on creating added value for our loyal clients through our turnkey solutions including web hosting, web design, SEO, SEM, graphic design, and content producing services.

The greatest thing is that UpCloud not only offers superior, high-performance cloud infrastructure but also has data centres all over the world. Therefore, the possibilities for business scalability are endless.

Future plans

We are ambitious to help SMEs to grow together with us by setting up and continuously improving the digital presence of our clients and to be able to do this at an international level poses no challenge for us with UpCloud. Having found the right partner to provide the best possible hosting has created a strong base for future success.

Over a thousand happy B2B clients rely on our services and only the sky is the limit when thinking of all the possibilities that we can offer to our present clients and new prospects in the future.
