How it Works

Copy Code, Click Button

Quit wasting time on layers of configuration, 3rd party services, and made-up terms like “pods” and “dynos”. is inspired by simplicity and “it just works” philosophy. Simply copy your Django (or WordPress) code via SFTP, click the deploy button, and your project is live in a matter of seconds. No CI, S3, AWS, WSGI, or other acronyms required.

Git integration is on our roadmap and will be coming soon!

Worry-Free Hosting for Agencies and Businesses

As a web developer, you don’t want the burden of managing layer upon layer of infrastructure. CodeRed handles everything for you: database, media storage, daily backups stored for 180 days*; full encryption in motion and at rest; and even automatic security patches.

Sleep well at night knowing our platform monitors your site 24x7 and pages a CodeRed engineer if your site goes down at any time for any reason*. Engineers will resolve the problem, or quickly notify you to minimize impact.

Additionally, with 1 hour of consulting per month* our support team is ready to help troubleshoot your site, debug your Django code, or even help you navigate Wagtail or WordPress.

Inspired Security Suite

Free SSL

Full Encryption

Auto Security Patches

Call us paranoid, but we take security seriously. Each website includes an SSL certificate by default, full data encryption in motion and at rest, encrypted backups, detailed audit logs, and obsessive security patches usually within one or two days of being published. That includes patches to OS, Python/PHP, and even packages such as Django, Wagtail, or WordPress plugins.

Content Optimization

CSS+JS Minification

Image Compression

Global CDN

Our optimization service* is built on Google Pagespeed software and automatically combines and minifies JavaScript and CSS. Images are compressed and optimized on the fly based on browser technology and device size to further reduce page load times. Finally, these optimized assets are cached and served over a global content delivery network*.

High-Powered Hardware

Built on Azure

Fastest CPUs

Premium SSDs runs on premium tier Microsoft Azure infrastructure. We use massive D and F-Series machines, premium solid-state storage, and high-availability MariaDB and PostgreSQL databases. Each website runs in a secure container with reserved resources. Your Python/PHP workers use in-memory caches to serve up requests at lightning-fast speeds.

* Available on Professional plan or higher.

Our Backstory

CodeRed LLC began operating in 2013 in Cleveland as a web development agency providing consulting and technical project work. Over the years we have built many strong relationships with small businesses, marketing agencies, and design/creative firms.

In 2015, we started hosting our clients’ Django and WordPress websites, as most agencies do. Over the past 5 years our platform has evolved and matured to the point that we can manage our own clients’ websites with the click of a few buttons. We had managed to build a platform so good that it replaced all of the manual labor — and even all of our bash scripts!

By 2019, we realized that the hosting platform should be opened to the public, and fill the last missing piece to the puzzle: a truly simple way of hosting Django. Further inspired by Tom Dyson’s lightning talk about Wagtail as a Service — it was clear that now is the time to launch

It is a real privilege to be part of such amazing open source web development communities. CodeRed is not funded by venture capital, not beholden to shareholders, and not owned by a larger parent company. We are very much eager to grow and provide something truly useful to developers, business owners, startup founders, nonprofit organizers, and fellow perfectionists with deadlines.
