In this post, I’m going to be writing about DreamPress which is Dreamhost’s managed WordPress hosting service. The latest version is called DreamPress 2.
If you are a webmaster, you might have already heard of managed hosting. Managed hosting means that everything on the server side is fully built and optimized by the service provider. DreamPress is a managed WordPress hosting plan which means your WordPress website will be fully optimized to benefit from whatever resource it is allocated.
With Dreampress, you will not have to install your WordPress or even install caching plugins because those things are already taken care of. Your work is to take care of your blog and forget about what happens on the machines.
Hosted on virtual private servers, DreamPress 2 is super fast and highly reliable managed WordPress hosting service. With DreamPress 2, you’ll get a WordPress-optimized server environment managed by the people at DreamHost so you can focus on creating an amazing website.
Check out these new features that will make your WordPress site faster than ever.
Solid State Drives (SSDs)
Your WordPress site will be faster hosted on SSDs with faster caching.
New PHP 5.5 with OPcache
A match made heaven, PHP 5.5 with OPcache is simply faster and more compatible with 3rd party WordPress plugins. This marriage just adds to the awesomeness of DreamPress 2.
New Hip Hop Virtual Machine (HHVM beta)
HHVM is Facebook’s faster replacement for PHP. As of WordPress 3.9 and HHVM 2.0, the two work beautifully together. HHVM can be enabled in your control panel.
Automatically set up on DreamPress, Varnish sits in front of and is faster than Apache. Varnish improves latency and provides a layer of caching protection for your site during traffic spikes.
We’ve fine-tuned our Memcached settings which results in faster load times, and fewer requests to the MySQL database. This means you can have more simultaneous visitors on your site.
You can either choose to pay monthly or signup for an annual plan. The annual plan is comparatively cheaper on a per-month cost comparison. Either way, using my DreamPress promo link at the top of this post will save you 40% during your purchase.
