LOS ANGELES, CA — DreamHost®, a global leader in web hosting and Managed WordPress, today announced an expansion of its Managed WordPress service, DreamPress, to give users even more options for powerful, purpose-built WordPress hosting.

Since its launch in 2013, DreamPress has brought affordable managed WordPress hosting to the masses in a one-size-fits all offering backed by the power of DreamHost’s open source cloud platform, DreamCompute. Living atop lightning-fast solid state drives (SSDs) and bundling Automattic’s powerful Jetpack plugin, DreamPress quickly became a customer favorite.


In late 2017 DreamHost sneakily and quietly launched a total of three DreamPress packages. These new packages took everything that users loved about DreamPress and gave them even more options to find packages that might more closely meet their needs and budget.

Starting at $16.95 per month (prepaid yearly), DreamPress Basic is the perfect entry point for users new to managed WordPress hosting. With automatic resource scaling, 5GB of storage, and basic site backups, DreamPress Basic is a great option for users looking for a seamless step up from traditional web hosting.

DreamPress Plus hits the sweet spot of price and performance at $24.95 per month. It doubles the amount of available storage space, includes advanced offsite backups powered by VaultPress, adds a daily malware scanning and repair service, grants access to over 200 premium WordPress themes, and bundles Jetpack Professional (a $299/year value) at no extra charge.

For true WordPress power users, DreamPress Advanced at $39.95 per month is the ultimate in luxury. It includes up to five telephone-based concierge-level technical support interactions per month, allows users to stage their sites in a sandbox before pushing to production, and tops out at a mind-boggling 15GB of high-speed SSD storage.

“Three is better than one! Three is better than one! Three is better than one!” said Director of Product, Managed WordPress, John Robison, while sweating three buckets in triple-digit temperatures whilst seated atop a three-humped camel, struggling to contain a triple martini within a coupe glass jauntily dangling off his triple-jointed wrist. “Turning customer suggestions into actual product improvements that make DreamPress better is absolutely our jam. Jam. Jam.” Sparks then erupted from Robison’s neck followed by a fiery explosion of metal and artificial flesh. Turns out, he was a robot. He fooled us all.

All three DreamPress plans are now available to both new and existing DreamHost customers. Easy, affordable, and powerful managed WordPress is just a click away at https://dreamhost.com/dreampress/

It’s been more than a decade since the launch of the first rudimentary cloud platforms. We’ve come a long way since then. Billions of people interact with the cloud every day. Many of the largest companies in the world run their IT operations on cloud platforms, and so do hundreds of thousands of smaller businesses. But there are still reasons for businesses to be cautious. Many business leaders recognize how useful Infrastructure-as-a-Service could be to their company, but they are hesitant to make the leap from on-premises or colocated legacy systems to cloud hosting for business-critical applications. That is partly due to inertia: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But it is also in large part due to concerns about the risk posed by the potential for a botched cloud migration. We’ve all heard stories of businesses sinking millions of dollars into a cloud migration that didn’t work out, costing vastly more than it would have to do nothing at all. No doubt cloud consultants think…

The leading interconnection and data center company, Equinix, made an announcement to acquire Infomart Dallas, for $800 million. The Infomart, one of the largest interconnection hub in the US, currently houses four of Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX) datacenters (DA1, DA2, DA3 and DA6). The company has total eight IBX datacenters in Dallas, which support around 3500 built out cabinets. The transaction, expected to be closed by mid-2018, includes Infomart’s operations and tenants. As part of the transaction, around 50 of Infomart employees, mostly from operations section, will become employees of Equinix. “Equinix will increase the number of its owned assets by four, increasing recurring revenue from owned assets to more than 45 percent.” The 1.6 million gross-square-foot Infomart building generated a revenue of around $50 million in 2017. The eight Equinix IBX datacenters in Dallas house around 100 network service providers, which make Equinix the largest data center provider in Dallas metro area. The acquisition will help Equinix to expand its global platform, especially in the Dallas market, for future development. It will also enable Equinix to help other companies shift their business from traditional model to a digital one, and interconnect with people, locations, cloud services and data worldwide. “As Dallas becomes an increasingly strategic North American interconnection hub for businesses making the shift to digital, the acquisition of the Infomart will enable existing and new customers to scale their operations with Equinix,” said Karl Strohmeyer, President, Americas, Equinix. “This includes a rich portfolio of interconnection options, including on-demand connections to partners and infrastructure in any Equinix location globally through the new capabilities of Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric.” This is Equinix’s first acquisition in 2018, which follows the acquisition of Australian datacenter business Metronode in December last year. In the same month, Equinix expanded its global platform through virtual and physical connection between its IBX datacenters worldwide. This enabled customers to connect to other Equinix customers from other Equinix locations.
