What makes Shifter unique?

Unlike traditional WordPress hosting, Shifter does not keep WordPress running 100% of the time. WordPress installations are only active and available when site administrators or editors need them.

Instead Shifter uses a static site generator to create a completely static always-on and cached version of your WordPress site which is what your site visitors see.
