We’re excited to introduce you to Timpani: the UK’s new WordPress platform. Built by a team with over two decades of experience in the technologies that power WordPress, Timpani has created a coherent platform that prioritises simplicity, security, and elegance. We ensure you can get your WordPress instances up and running at the press of a button, make sure they’re kept up to date and backed up, and then get out of your way.
Want SSL? No problem: just paste in your certificate and you have SSL. Want to synchronise your live sites to a free Timpani UAT staging area? One click. Git-push with your ssh keys to that staging site? Easy! Timpani comes with a blazingly fast cache. Want to clear it? Just press a button and it’s done. In the mood for some database surgery? Access phpmyadmin securely and directly from your Timpani panel, without having to remember your database password. Restore from yesterday’s backup? Or last week? Done, in seconds. Invite your favourite devs, colleagues, and clients to your Timpani instances, add them to your teams and give them permissions to do exactly what you want them to do. And talking about permissions: our platform doesn’t require that your WordPress files have a set of lax generic web-server permissions, nor be open up to the world just to allow uploads!
Timpani. No gimmicks. No fragile pseudo-features designed to look good in a brochure but compromise the live service. Just elegant, robust, clean managed WordPress, hosted in the UK by a team selected for not just their expertise but their humanity. We’re so proud of our new baby. We want to take this opportunity to introduce you to it at WordCamp London: say hello to Timpani!
