Background

Infrastructure and website that scales and adapts to suit thousands of visitors

5Why, an Australian independant online publisher of content for Gen Z and Millenials, was concerned about the initial setup, speed and risk to their website which attracts over 50,000 visitors a month (as at June 2019). The company believed that revamping the website, implementing security measures and migrating the website to a dedicated server on scalable and secure infrastructure was critical to ensuring the website’s integrity and safeguarding it from security, technical and speed issues.

After clarity of scope, features and requirements were understood, the website content (3000+ blog articles and 10,000+ images) was exported and stood up in a secure development environment, a new WordPress website was built in collaboration with 5Why.

As a result of the migration to a dedicated, purpose built server, 5Why saw an immediate increase of over 20% reduction on the load times of their website.

Today, 5Why visitors are growing and with over 5 articles published daily, 5Why is able to comfortably concentrate on publishing content while the infrastructure expands on-demand in a secure, resilient and scalable Google Cloud Platform infrastructure.
