Hosting Provider Compatibility

Hosting Platforms

  • GoDaddy Hosting
    • Some GoDaddy servers do not respond well to the Pegasaas Accelerator’s requests to purge the native GoDaddy managed WordPress caching plugin.  If you experience issues with some Pegasaas functionality, use the provided GoDaddy “Flush Cache” option from the top menu in WordPress
  • SiteGround with Cloudflare enabled
    • Pegasaas cannot detect Cloudflare when Cloudflare is set up using the Siteground internal systems.  We recommend Cloudflare in this scenario while we investigate a possible solution.
  • Kinsta
    • The built in caching system with Kinsta has proven problemmatic, however we are testing a solution which appears to resolve all previously experienced issues with Kinsta caching.

Performance Limitations

Kinsta Hosting

Kinsta is considered a fast hosting environment, however the Pegasaas plugin can require more than the basic resources (PHP Worker Processes) available in the Starter/Pro/Business 1 plans.  If the PHP Worker processes are overtaxed, the site will become un-responsive.  To reactivate the site, log in to your Kinsta control panel, proceed to the Tools panel for your site, and click the “Restart PHP” button.

We are always looking at ways to optimize Pegasaas to not use as many resources to prevent this from happening.

One of the techniques that we are currently using to prevent Kinsta hosted sites from getting overwhelmed by our API is to use delayed pickup method, which runs every 5 minutes, to grab the latest requests from the Pegasaas API.  This will normally result in the Pegasaas Accelerator plugin dashboard only updating every 2-5 minutes with new data.

It is safe to continue using your WordPress site without having to sit on the Pegasaas Accelerator plugin dashboard, while your site optimizes.

SiteGround Hosting

SiteGround is considered a fast hosting environment, however the Pegasaas plugin can, at normal/moderate/maxium API response rates, exceed the 2 hour rolling and 24 rolling usage limits.
