Media Temple Takes Managed WordPress to the Next Level With Expanded Offering

Web Host’s WordPress Offering Evolves Into A Full-Featured Solution With Four New Customized Plans

LOS ANGELES – February 25, 2015 –  Media Temple, a Los Angeles-based company that provides premium web hosting to web developers, designers, and creative agencies and powers over 300,000 WordPress sites, today announced the expansion of its WordPress hosting offering.

Less than a year after its initial launch in March 2014, Media Temple’s managed WordPress offering has evolved into a full-featured solution that offers more choices – seamlessly integrating new services such as Gmail and the whole suite of Google Apps for Work, as well as in-app WordPress help by WP101 and SIDEKICK. Users also have access to a unique set of web developer tools ranging from one-click staging and site cloning to SSH access and Git integration.

Leveraging feedback collected from WordPress users over the last 10 months, four new plans – Personal, Studio, Agency and Enterprise – were designed to fully service the entire array of Media Temple customers that design and develop WordPress sites for themselves and/or for others. In addition to providing unmatched uptime on one of the industry’s fastest WordPress platforms, automatic WordPress core updates and daily backups, Media Temple’s new plans boast the following new features: increased range of SSD storage (from 30GB to 1TB); a new low-end bandwidth option with 400,000 monthly visitors; a completely revamped onboarding process; and several additional custom responsive themes.

The Studio, Agency and Enterprise plans also come with a free domain and enhanced premium security features including secure access with built-in SSL certificate (for yearly purchase levels only), as well as malware scanning and automated removal powered by SiteLock.

“To address our audiences’ specific needs, we have customized our WordPress offering to run the gamut, catering to independent designers, bloggers and creatives, as well as creative agencies and those running large-scale, high-traffic WordPress installations,” said Brian Kuhn, VP of Product at Media Temple. “With new features and enhancements, users get a highly secure and scalable WordPress hosting solution that is fully optimized to the exacting standards of WordPress professionals.”

Media Temple’s new WordPress offers also allow users to easily upgrade or downgrade their plan as their needs (and their clients’) evolve.
