When Bryan Perez took on his passion project, draftbreakdown.com, little did he realize the amount of time he’d spend managing the technicalities of the sports media website against site downtime and security incidents.
“We’re a seasonal website, meaning we experience our highest traffic during the NFL draft season, which is mid-to-late November through mid-to-late May. During the 2016 draft season, our site was down at least once a day. My phone would buzz late at night…it would be a tweet or message that the site was down again,” said Perez.
In this case study, read about what drove Draft Breakdown to ultimately change providers to WP Engine’s digital experience platform and the tremendous site results they saw once in a stable environment.
“We did our due diligence, moving to WP Engine. I was finally able to sleep at night and the site is now ready to take a significant step forward this draft season. We now have the ability to take an aggressive approach to the next phase of relevance for football fans.” — Bryan Perez, Co-Founder, DraftBreakdown.com, LLC.
