Understanding Commonly Used Technical Jargon

We provided the following list for each term to give you more in-depth information which should help you to understand what we are talking about.

Pressific page jargon

Developer Time

One of the features of Pressific is that we include monthly developer time with all our packages.

Although you will have full access to edit your website, your can also make use of the developer's time to make changes such as: replacing images, editing text or adding blog posts.

20 minutes can be used for swapping images, making text changes or restoring a backup.

15 minutes is usually enough to build a simple landing page.

1 hour is enough time to make more complex changes. For example: Layout changes (and then testing on multiple browsers and devices).

Managed WordPress & Making your own WordPress website.

If you have been comparing us with other hosting companies then you may have come across the term “Managed WordPress“.

Managed WordPress is a layer of software tools that makes WordPress easier to use. e.g. WordPress & some plugins being pre-installed.

Despite the name, it’s still a D-I-Y solution where you need to manage your own WordPress website.

If you build your own website, you’ll need to purchase premium themes & plugins or rely on ‘free‘ versions with restrictions.

Pressific vs other hosting

Pressific installs and customises your WordPress, along with plugins for functionality, analytics, security, SEO and speed optimisation.

While we have a process to follow, each website is unique and we adjust the process to meet the client’s needs.

At Pressific, we don’t just provide you with tools, we do the work for you.

Not all WordPress hosting is equal. Many companies throw obscure stats and bamboozle customers with jargon.

We test websites with Google’s testing tools and optimise for best results.

Hosting companies love to boast about their server stats. 


But if Google says their customer websites are slow then those sites will be downranked.

Visits Per Month

This number shows the approximate traffic your websites can handle. Choose your web hosting plan according to how many visitors you’re planning to reach. It is merely a point of reference rather than a restriction, and it depends on the website’s resource usage and optimisation.

Main limiting technical factor is Bandwidth.

Bandwidth is the amount of data that can be transferred to and from your website. 


Websites with a lot of visitors need a lot of bandwidth. But things can get a little more complicated when we look at peak throughput where a website has more traffic at a particular time e.g. after a scheduled radio ad or Google ad campaign. Not being able to handle the sudden demand causes websites to crash.

As we utilize a highly scalable infrastructure, Pressific stands well ahead of other hosting providers to meet high bandwidth demands.

SSL - Security Certificates

Secure your website and protect your visitors' sensitive information with Pressific's FREE SSL certificates.

Our monthly developer time can be used to restore websites in case of accidents.
