TL; DR: 10Web offers an integrated platform that allows entrepreneurs to build and publish a WordPress site in minutes. And its managed hosting, powered by Google Cloud, ensures those websites are fast, scalable, and secure. The company’s latest update, 10Web 2.0, delivers an average page load time of 1.5 seconds, which optimizes visitor experiences and helps convert them into customers. The company makes product decisions based on customer feedback with the ultimate goal of democratizing website-building for developers, marketing agencies, and businesses.
A webpage load time of two seconds or less has been the Holy Grail of site developers since at least 2016. That year, Google’s John Mueller issued a rare tweet confirming that limit as a benchmark to keep bounce rates low.
But one study shows that the average page load time is still over three seconds, and that times any longer than that make bounce rates soar. When load time hits five seconds, 38% of site visitors will give up and leave.
10Web is a hosting company that prides itself on bringing those times down for its customers. The company has developed technology to optimize the site components that affect a website’s performance and speed.
Its all-in-one services portfolio for building, hosting, and publishing WordPress websites allows businesses to create an online presence in minutes. And the platform’s latest update, 10Web 2.0, delivers an average page load time of 1.5 seconds.
“Before this update, developers and site builders could spend days, weeks, sometimes even months, optimizing their sites to achieve faster load times and a high-ranking Google PageSpeed score,” said Araks Nalbandyan, 10Web Marketing Director. “Now, they can get that automatically, so they can quickly increase their client base and revenue.”
Fast page load times not only keep bounce rates low but also play a significant role in boosting site traffic and increasing conversion rates. Load time is also a critical component of a site’s Google PageSpeed score. If a website’s PageSpeed score is low, there’s little chance it will appear on the first page of search results.
The average load time of all websites ranking on the first page of Google search results is three seconds. That’s why 10Web optimization guarantees a 95+ Google PageSpeed score for WordPress websites built and hosted on its platform.
10Web supports thousands of websites and has more than a decade of experience in WordPress development. Clients range from small businesses and bloggers to enterprises.
A couple of years ago, the management team at 10Web began hearing about problems its customers were experiencing during the site-building process. Those customers said they needed to buy several different types of software for WordPress hosting, templates, themes, and plugins. But, sometimes, tools from different suppliers didn’t work smoothly together — or were incompatible.
“We found that these customers were facing opportunity issues, and were tired of talking to various support teams for different products,” said Araks. “So, we decided to create a platform that combines everything. It’s the only platform in our market, so far, that provides hosting, website building, and site management.”
Launched in April, the new 10Web platform hosts around 10,000 business websites. It aims to help overcome WordPress obstacles by providing all of the essentials needed to build a robust, speedy, secure, and well-designed website in just a few hours.
The platform includes its own optimized site builder with an array of templates, widgets, and extensions. Users can build a site quickly, in part because of the Elementor-based, drag-and-drop interface, so there’s no coding required. The Elementor WordPress page builder is created for professionals and available in more than 50 languages.
10Web site-builder widgets allow businesses to customize logos and taglines and even post content. The solution also includes an advanced frontend editor with a wide selection of pre-designed templates to help get sites up and running fast. Websites are also responsive, attractive, mobile-friendly, and optimized for speed.
“Web developers and marketing agencies may need to build many websites in a short period,” said Araks. “To do so, they could spend too much time working on different platforms. Using our platform makes that site-building simple and easy. Streamlining their workflows saves them time and money — and their clients are happier, too.”
10Web offers what it believes are the essential components for an effective website. Those include managed hosting on Google Cloud, SEO services, analytics, and excellent customer support, among others.
The company’s managed WordPress hosting is powered by Google Cloud, which makes websites extremely fast, scalable, and secure. Google Cloud offers 99.9% uptime to 10Web clients and uses datacenters on four continents, which helps minimize data transfer time between servers and end-users. Other essential 10Web services include a free SSL certificate, a free image optimizer, and a free website speed test.
“The onboarding process is simple,” said Araks. “With just a few clicks, users can automatically migrate an existing site to our platform. In just a couple of minutes, depending on the size of the website, they can create a new, optimized online presence from their choice of attractive, professional-looking templates.”
And users can manage all of their WordPress sites from a single, intuitive dashboard. Once migration is complete, 10Web offers elastic scaling that seamlessly provides additional website resources for sudden surges in traffic.
In an interview with PR Newswire, 10Web Co-Founder Arto Minasyan said: “Everyone deserves to have the option to craft a reliable and attractive online presence without hiring a developer.”
And 10Web embraces that attitude by including all services in its hosting plans, regardless of tier or price. And it provides the same level of high-quality customer support for each tier. Through its 10Web Care service portal, customers wait no longer than five minutes for a response from support staff, and no more than 24 hours to resolve an issue.
With its customers seeing much faster page load times after experiencing the optimization innovations of 10Web 2.0, the update is garnering plenty of positive feedback.
According to Araks, about 80% of 10Web users in its Facebook community reported that their sites now rank on the first page of Google searches, and pages load in less than two seconds.
“I’ve been looking at product reviews, and many people are excited about the new update,” said Araks. “It’s great talking with them and finding out that they are enthusiastic about it. You need to provide a product to a given market, and you need to gear it to what that market wants. We knew they needed these improvements, and now we can see they’ve gotten what they asked for, and are thrilled about that.”
In keeping with its philosophy of democratizing website-building, 10Web is committed to continuous improvement and makes product decisions based on customer feedback as well as market trends. It has a public product road map posted on its website so everyone can see the improvements the company is working on.
As with the 2.0 update, the goal of 10Web is to simplify everything for businesses that want to build a web presence because time is something that no one can produce.
“Time is the most expensive thing that people can spend,” said Araks. “When they want to spend less time doing certain things, everything must become automated. So we’re trying to automate everything as much as possible. That will help our customers gain more clients and revenue.”
