Media Temple Unveils New Enterprise-Class WordPress Hosting Solutions On The AWS Cloud

Web Host’s New WordPress Offering for Enterprise Is Backed by (mt) One, a White Glove Account Management Service.

LOS ANGELES – May 17, 2016Media Temple, a Los Angeles-based company providing people-powered web and cloud hosting solutions, today announced that it has launched a new WordPress hosting offering for enterprises and the agencies that serve them. Leveraging enterprise-tested Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud technology, Media Temple has built the first mission-critical WordPress solutions that meet and exceed enterprises’ business continuity needs.

The company is rolling out two new plans that uniquely combine managed WordPress, AWS hosting and Media Temple’s CloudTech Premier, 24/7 premium technical support from an in-house team of seasoned cloud architects and administrators. Additionally, customers have access to (mt) One, a new, round-the-clock, white glove account management service provided by dedicated executive-level account managers. Among other services, the (mt) One team ensures that websites and apps are operating at peak performance, and conduct regular business reviews to discuss upcoming high-traffic events.

The new plans were designed to also address these key enterprise-grade organizations’ needs:

  • SCALE: The plans’ unique, robust architecture offers auto-scaling, thus minimizing the risk of downtime by dynamically scaling up and down to handle any large amount of traffic;
  • AVAILABILITY: The new solutions boast an elastic architecture with redundant systems across dual data centers, which allows for continuous access to sites and apps;
  • SECURITY: Both plans also feature a container-based environment that automatically protects users’ sites and apps against common exploits. Additionally, they come with Amazon CloudFront’s DDoS protection against SYN flood and DNS amplification attacks;
  • SPEED: Finally, multi-tiered page and object caching, both server-side and through Amazon CloudFront, a global Content Delivery Network, brings maximum speed to high-traffic sites and apps.

“Based on the feedback we collected from the WordPress community and our pilot program, we know that enterprises take WordPress very seriously. They also want to partner with experts who can unleash the power of the cloud for them and help increase their overall business efficiency,” said Brendan Fortune, Senior Director of Product Management at Media Temple. “With our highly available managed WordPress solutions, we are bringing them the sophistication of the world’s most popular web and app platform, uniquely combined with high-end, 24/7 support and account management, as well as the reliability of AWS.”

“Many enterprise-level customers consider the level of service and support just as critical as the quality of the WordPress hosting solution itself,” said Deb Shea, Director of Strategy and Operations at Media Temple. “They want real-timeliness and account managers who can advocate for them throughout the business, which is exactly what our new WordPress plans are offering.”

Media Temple’s new plans include CloudTech Premier and (mt) One, and start with 1TB storage and 1.5TB bandwidth – both plans are also expandable as customers’ needs evolve. A full list of all the plans’ features and benefits is available at
