In the mean time, here are some FAQ’s we thought would be helpful. Don’t hesitate to ask a question in the comments section either.

Q: What is this Premium WP Hosting product about?
Our new Premium WordPress product is a highly flexible and scalable WordPress hosting solution that is optimized for web developers and designers. Premium features include a customer staging environment, website templating, as well as a unique WordPress theme market, created by designers for designers. Additionally, with automated WordPress updates, enhanced security and one-click backups, our Premium WordPress Hosting keeps sites secure and always updated with the latest version of WordPress.

Q: Why do I want managed WordPress hosting?
If you develop and manage WordPress sites, working in a professional hosting environment will make your life easier and your business more efficient. Our premium WordPress platform lets you quickly get your websites up and running, for yourself or your clients, while you focus on what’s important for your business. WordPress is powerful in itself, but deploying and managing several WordPress sites can become cumbersome. Let us handle all the System Administration headaches for you.

Q: What are the key features of this Premium WordPress product?
Premium WP hosting means that we offer 24/7 unmatched premium tech support from the web’s best support team that has been WP-trained.
Premium WP hosting also means premium features such as:

  • Website templating, which enables users to clone a site instead of starting from scratch.
  • Website staging, which lets users see their changes before sending them live.
  • Email integration.
  • A unique (and growing) WP themes market.

Q: How many WP themes are in your theme market?
Right now, we only offer one (mt) theme designed by our creative director, but more themes created by some of the best designers in the industry will be unveiled in the next few months.

Q: Will you be adding more features down the road?
Yes, we are already working hard on some new features that will be available in the next few months, along with more unique themes created by designers. Stay tuned for more!

Q: How many WordPress installations do I get with my plan?
You get three. If you need more than the three WordPress installations included with our standard plan, just pay as you go. Each additional WordPress installation comes with an extra 5GB of SSD storage and costs only $9/month.

Q: Are there any disk space, bandwidth, or page view limits?
We really want to remove any barriers to you being successful. To that end, you don’t need to worry about bandwidth. Pageviews only become a concern as your site becomes extremely popular, in the million+ range of monthly pageviews. Even then, we won’t cap your views or shut down your site. We also did a thorough analysis on our disk space offering to make sure you’ll have more than enough space for your general needs, but if you need additional disk space, please contact us. We’ll work with you individually to make sure our Premium WordPress Hosting can give you everything you need.

Q: How often is WordPress core updated and do you update my plugins and themes?
We look to push updates to WordPress core within 48 hours of release. This allows us time to test and ensure the stability of the release for all of our customers. At this time, we do not update themes and plugins. With such a wide variety of third-party extensions available, we want to minimize the possibility of a plugin or theme update breaking your site as much as possible.

Q: Can I move a WordPress site to Media Temple?
We’d love it if you did! Our CloudTech technicians can conduct a free site evaluation and move your WordPress sites for you.
