DreamHost Launches DreamPress 2

Hosted on virtual private servers, DreamPress is a super fast and highly reliable managed WordPress hosting service offered by DreamHost. DreamPress 2 kicks things up a notch by including SSD drives, PHP 5.5 with OpCache & HHVM (Hip Hop Virtual Machine). For those of you who don’t know, HHVM is Facebook’s faster replacement for PHP and as of WordPress 3.9 – HHVM 2.0 is fully supported.

Essentially with DreamPress 2 you get a WordPress-optimized server environment managed entirely by the DreamHost team. For $19.95/mo you get 30GB of SSD storage, auto-scaling RAM, unlimited email accounts, and no real traffic limit. Further-more you get daily backups all managed for you by DreamHost.

There is something to keep in mind however. DreamPress is designed to be a one-site service; meaning that a single plan covers a single domain name. Furthermore while DreamPress websites are setup as a VPS there are a few limitations as compared to a standard VPS hosting plan:

  • Cannot configure or modify the VPS instance
  • No root SSH access
  • No ability to add or remove databases
  • No ability to add or remove FTP users
