Global Head of Design

My new hosting provider,, does exactly that! You can still work using WordPress, create amazing content, and Shifter will deliver it completely as static files.

ITC System Specialist

As an engineer, I also think it’s a fantastic use of technology. As a blogger, it gives me the performance and scalability I’m after, at a price point that is much cheaper compared to other hosting options.

Josh Merriam, @Jmerriam

Server-less WordPress hosting? 🤔 A huge portion of blogs and small websites would be better served by a faster, cheaper, and easier to manage serverless environment.


This is what @asked_io has been preaching for months now
