Our Mission

Pressjitsu exists with sole purpose of helping businesses of all sizes develop a healthy relationship with their past, present and future WordPress solutions.

In 2014, Gennady Kovshenin and his co-founders set out on plan to prove once and for all that WordPress doesn't have to be ugly, doesn't have to be slow and unreliable. Along the way our team has developed, tested and applied propietary and open-source solutions to WordPress projects of all sorts increasing their efficiency. We've pioneered performance and security patching efforts in WordPress core, upstream code and third-party plugins.

Pressjitsu is a NOT a WordPress hosting company

Although we specialize in infrastructure development, integration, deployment and maintenance, we don't sell hardware. We concentrate on providing value to your code and how it operates, to your team and your requirements.

Hosting today, even managed and enterprise hosting, seems to have boiled down to custom caching solutions and setups on popular cloud providers. Everyone's doing it, no point in hiding it. For us, caching and hardware is the final step.

Why WordPress?

WordPress is everywhere. Every third website is powered by WordPress. Whether you like it or not you'll have to deal with it in one way or another. Whether your vendor asked you to integrate with an API based on WordPress, or you're running a company blog, you'll have to deal with it.

Everyone loves to hate WordPress. That's because WordPress is easy, but WordPress is hard. With plugins and themes readily available anyone can throw together a pretty complex WordPress-based project and ship it. But will it scale as the business grows? Countless examples of production code that was never meant for production. Awful architecture decisions plague installations worldwide. And it's fine in 99.99% of cases. Until it's your company that is left one on one with a legacy codebase, 30 plugins and a premium theme. The 0.01%.

WordPress is an excellent and easy platform to develop with. However, it's all too easy to shoot yourself in the foot. And you won't know until it's a little too late. If you want to develop a banking application on Laravel you'll have to read some manuals, know PHP. If you want to do it on WordPress (don't do it) you'll find a couple of banking plugins in the repository, throw on some caching and call it a day. Which one will last?

It's actually that bad

You approach the ecosystem, looking for help. The usual "solutions"? Slap some caching on it. Buy more hardware. Get a dedicated server. That's not addressing the root cause. It will backfire once your project grows. And nothing short of stopping and thinking, thinking some more, understanding and applying experience will save your project.

This is hard. If anyone is telling you otherwise, chances are they don't know what they're doing...

But with the right mindset, guidance, philosophy and a little help from the outside your team will be able to make WordPress work.

 

There is no magic plugin or piece of hardware that you can buy.
Work on your code.
Always.
