Those details that mean the world to you are on our must list as well. Part of the UBC CLF is the integrated Google Search that allows you to search your website and all associated websites. We also provide plugins for Google Analytics and SEO optimization (and not to mention that WordPress is already amazing in these regards).

WordPress also now comes with version control by default, and our overall framework is part of UBC’s high availability networks with state of the art scaling capabilities, automated backups, failovers and other network features.
