DreamPress is the new kid on the block in the managed WordPress hosting industry. It’s the new service offered by DreamHost, check out the announcement below:

Attention entrepreneurs, website designers, developers, and bloggers! Are you ready for a whole new way to WordPress?


DreamPress is a highly optimized, extremely reliable managed WordPress service that comes pre-configured to stand up to higher traffic loads and serve up server-intensive themes and plugins.

This means it’s engineered for speed, advanced security, excellent reliability, and ease of use – all features that were created to make your lives easier!

The service uses managed Virtual Private Server (VPS) instances running on isolated, highly scalable, tuned-for-WordPress physical servers. The application stack includes an automatically-configured in-memory caching layer for rocket-powered speed and works seamlessly with WordPress because it’s also optimized and tuned for the VPS environment. Add in robot-assisted migration that leverages DreamHost-developed open source contributions to the wp-cli tool, an easy control panel interface, and the advanced WordPress support that DreamHost is known for, and the result is a powerful yet ultimately usable and cost-effective hosted WordPress service.

What else do we love about DreamPress?

Built into the service are automatic WordPress core updates, best-practice security configuration to prevent common attacks, automatic mod_security web firewall rule management, and application stack management, to name some of the key features. Plus, expert engineers are operating the DreamPress service 24/7, so even the most demanding implementations are equipped for non-stop operation.

Standard pricing for DreamPress is $24.95 per month, but DreamHost has always been about offering epic launch deals to customers, so DreamPress will be offered at just $19.95 per month for a limited time. That’s a whole lot of ‘Press power for 20 bucks!

$19.95 for a performance package that includes an isolated VPS web server, a MySQL VPS database server, premium support, performance and security tuning, consulting support, and available automated backups to DreamHost’s public cloud storage service, DreamObjects? You better believe it.

And as with all DreamHost services, every DreamPress account is backed by a 97-day, money-back guarantee.
