We Take Hosting Seriously

In this day and age, anyone can put up a server and call themselves a web host. Our managed WordPress hosting service grew out of our need for a high-performance/high-uptime hosting environment for our clients.

Because we are the ones to get a call when a site is offline, we build the absolute best hosting platform we can. We put together the best package to ensure our clients the highest uptime, security, and performance for their WordPress sites.

With control over the entire environment from code to server, we have no excuse but to simply solve your issue.

Decades of Web Development Experience

The FatLab team has launched thousands of websites throughout their careers… literally thousands. Shane, the founder of FatLab, remembers explaining what HTML was to executives at Ford Motor Company, MasterCard, and MCI (remember them?) in the late ’90s. 

With decades of experience, our careers have taken us through some great (and sometimes crazy) experiences. We have built, launched, and supported websites for those running for Senate and Congress. We have in our portfolio famous and infamous individuals, companies, and organizations. We have worked for the royalty of more than one nation and our work has been part of national and international campaigns.  

Most importantly we have helped businesses, agencies, and nonprofits of all sizes create and maintain their online presence. Applying lessons learned with each new project. We have even gone as far as creating our development framework and methodology.

And finally, we are a website maintenance company. Once a new website has launched our jobs have just begun, focusing on maintenance, support, and manged hosting services.

We Are WordPress Experts

Don’t we wish we kept track of the number of sites we have worked on here at FatLab and across our team’s careers…

All we know is that the number would be impressive. We have collectively worked on sites belonging to the smallest mom ‘n pop shops to Fortune 500 sites. We have worked for foreign and domestic governments and just about everything in between. Several of us have been working in PHP, and MySQL – specifically WordPress – for over 10 years.

We each have our strengths – from front-end eye candy to seriously cool back-end functionality.

Our managed website hosting services are specifically designed to serve WordPress websites at the enterprise level.

Our Mission is Website Security and Performance

Why do people leave sites?

Slow load times equal high bounce rates and this is important because Google calculates your site’s load times in its page ranking algorithm.

Think you’re safe from hackers?

Without proper safeguards, your site visitors could become victims of viruses if a random bad bot finds just one weak point in your site’s code.

We can help.

Utilizing real-time firewalls, daily malware scanning (and cleaning), full-page caching, CDNs, code optimizations, and more – we can help ensure your site remains secure, safe, and fast. This will protect your site visitors and ensure they have the absolute best experience possible.

Agency Partnerships

We love working with communication agencies, studios, designers, and specialists of all kinds and we have many successful agency partnerships to prove it.

Whether it be bringing design files to life in the browser, providing managed WordPress hosting, or simply squashing a bug; our job is to make you look good.

We can work as a member of your team and handle direct communications, or we can work behind the scenes. The structure is up to you.

Nonprofit Website Management

We have a lot of nonprofit and association experience. We understand the unique needs of membership, issues, and trade groups.

FatLab can put together a unique online presence management plan to ensure all your systems are meeting the needs of your members, donors, and other audiences.

From simple content updates to strategic planning our goal is to become a true partner.
