WF2 Continental Sponsors Group 1

20i, Yoast, and Easy WP Partner with WordFest Live

We’re excited to announce that 20i, Yoast, and Easy WP have partnered with WordFest Live and will feature across the live event on July 23, 2021.

Introducing 20i, Yoast, and Easy WP

20i

With 20 years’ experience to draw upon, 20i has created a next-level premium hosting product with the needs of web professionals and hosting resellers in mind.

Their shared hosting platform offers load balancing and autoscaling, with each hosted site having access to multi-server resources that scale to meet each site’s individual needs. Add in SSD storage and a bespoke WordPress platform and your sites are up and running quickly, safely, and securely with optimal reliability.

Yoast

Yoast SEO is the #1 WordPress SEO plugin that helps millions of users with their rankings in Google and other search engines.

How? Our plugin helps you write awesome content and handles the technical SEO stuff for you. With specific feedback on the rankability and readability of your content, but also features like our redirect manager, a Google preview editor and internal linking suggestions tool. Our mission at Yoast is SEO for everyone.

That’s why we’re proud that our users range from some of the most popular sites in the world to the bakery around the corner!

Yoast SEO:

  • Is the most downloaded SEO plugin (+11 million active downloads)
  • Helps you get more visitors from Google, Bing and social media
  • Helps you tackle the technical stuff and create awesome content

In addition to our Yoast SEO plugin, we offer a few other plugins that help you step up your SEO game. Read more about them on Yoast.com. But that’s not all that we do.

We strongly believe in giving back to the community. Because of that, we love sponsoring and attending events like WordFest 2021!

Easy WP

Namecheap is the world’s second-largest domain registrar and top technology company for online creators. Always striving to make the Internet affordable and accessible for everyone, we believe that building a website should not be a struggle.

That is why we’ve built EasyWP – true managed WordPress hosting built on our own, state-of-the-art Cloud from the ground up.

EasyWP is a next-generation Managed WordPress platform that delivers a full Managed WordPress experience at a fraction of the usual market price. All EasyWP WordPress sites are managed via the dashboard.

Users and creators enjoy a holistic overview of all of their sites. A single pane of glass to view the status, health, and key statistics gives the easiest, quickest way to understand what is going on across all of their sites. EasyWP offers an incredibly quick and intuitive way to get started with WordPress and it takes less than 60 seconds to launch your first site.

Learn More About 20i, Yoast, and Easy WP

We asked representatives from each of the companies a few questions to find out what excited them about partnering with WordFest Live: 

Matthew Telfer from 20i
Lotte Janssen from Yoast
Anastasia Dyachenko from Easy WP

Here’s what each of them had to say! 

Our first question to the group was to find out why reaching out to the remote working community is important to them.

Matthew Telfer mentioned:

A lot of us are now working from home and it’s important we find ways to avoid becoming isolated and stay connected with our communities. Supporting events like WordFest Live 2021 means we can help attendees meet new people and engage with fellow WordPress enthusiasts.

While Lotte Janssen shared:

Reaching out to the remote working community is important to us, because we believe you should be able to do the job you love regardless of where you live. If your work allows you to, of course!

Yoast is an advocate of hybrid working. For example, our Yoast support team works remotely and is distributed all over the world. How cool is that!

And Anastasia Dyachenko said:

Over the last year and a half, working remotely has become a new norm for many, including the Namecheap and EasyWP team. Many people were forced to move their businesses online, master new skills and professions, and adapt to the new remote working reality.

Now more than ever we feel the demand for affordable and simple tools so that anyone can create an online presence. That is why all online creators should be aware of EasyWP – a true fully-managed WordPress experience. 

Next, we asked if they have anything special planned for WordFest Live attendees. 

Lotte Janssen encourages everyone to stop by and see them:

The Yoast tent is going to be informative & fun at the same time! Expect lots of sharing knowledge, nice and fun activities and Spanish speaking colleagues.

And Anastasia Dyachenko’s excited about their quiz, and more:

Everyone who wants to test their grasp of WordPress is welcome to take part in our WordPress quiz. Awesome gifts are guaranteed for all quiz participants, and the winners will get $30 in Namecheap credits to spend on top-notch digital products to power their WordPress websites. 

We’ll also be giving a brief demo and presentation about how WordFest Live attendees can get the best out of EasyWP. Come and join our team from 9 to 10 pm UTC in the EasyWP tent. 

Finally, we gave them a chance to mention anything new or coming up that they might want to share with attendees.

Lotte Janssen had a lot to share:

What’s new? Well we recently created a very nice digital story about SEO fitness, in which you can learn all about keeping your website in shape! Also, we’re working on multiple SEO workouts and released the first one recently! Check out what it is about in our release post.

In addition we’ve just launched a new Yoast SEO academy course: eCommerce SEO. Check it out!

As did Anastasia Dyachenko:

Indeed! 2021 is going to be exciting. Our hard work doesn’t stop here. In fact, we’re still very much in startup/build mode. We have a lot of exciting enhancements and features planned for EasyWP. As a teaser for some of the things we’re currently working on:

– Improved backups and backup management
– Usage and visitor stats in your dashboard
– Staging and development area with easy push to live functionality

We are also in the early stages of working on additional international locations allowing you to host EasyWP from more global locations. So stay tuned. This is going to be an exciting ride!

Additionally, Anastasia Dyachenko pointed out:

We also have a great blog on our EasyWP.com page, discussing the latest developments and technical aspects of WordPress, as well as super useful informative articles and tutorials to help both beginners and more advanced WordPress users. Check our our blog here.

Take a minute to find 20i, Yoast, and Easy WP at the live event July 23 and swing by both the Games Tent and Community Tent to see what all they have planned!! Until then, follow them on social media and send them a “Thank you!” for sponsoring!
