A headless-first WordPress hosting service created for Jamstack developers, built on the Shifter platform.
Shifter Headless was created for developers, agencies, and freelancers who use WordPress as a data source to host, build, and deploy modern web applications. It’s purpose-built for the next generation of Jamstack developers who are building sites today. Features include integrated web application firewalls, high-availability, no to low-configuration, and networking advantages for headless WordPress sites. From the very beginning, Shifter Headless was designed for growth, while giving our engineers the flexibility to adapt to feature requests and provide our customers with the tools they need.
Since the launch of Shifter in 2016, our mission has been to improve the security, scalability, and reliability of WordPress hosting. We believe that the latest technologies available to the modern web should be available to everyone, including the WordPress community. The growing Jamstack ecosystem is one area where we focus that effort. Sourcing content from WordPress-as-an-API has never been more popular, and while it’s easy to do, it can be challenging to get right. Shifter Headless solves headless WordPress’s challenges by deeply integrating the latest hosting technology available. Shifter Headless was made for you if you’re creating headless sites today using WordPress.
We are moving WordPress websites away from outdated setups with monolithic code and towards a more modern platform and workflow. We want website creators and developers to have the same performance and benefits as world-class enterprise applications. That’s what Shifter Headless solves for WordPress.
Available today, Shifter’s new Headless Plans let you develop modern Jamstack sites while using WordPress as a headless CMS. With our headless plans, there’s no need to worry about setup – we’ve included everything you’ll need to get started with your favorite framework.
