@kev So if you write your own theme, you could switch to Craft CMS and use the hosting you have.
It in has built in caching and plugins (paid) to handle the other items (not super sure about the newsletter glue).
Plus you have absolute control over the front end and final rendered output. It's pretty damn fast.
@redeagle potentially yeah, I’m just not that sure I have the inclination to learn an entire new CMS. I’ll definitely take a look though.
@kev The backend UI is dead simple. It's just getting used to Twig if you're not already familiar with it.
