Sensing a need to mobilize the community, Namecheap CEO Richard Kirkendall launched the first ever Move Your Domain Day. Seven years later, Namecheap has used its platform to raise awareness about other dangerous bills like the Protect IP Act (PIPA) as well as the continued battle to save Net Neutrality.

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/
