Pressable Introduction

Founded in May of 2010 in sunny San Antonio, Pressable self-identifies as being "WordPress Hosting Specialists." With hosting plans designed to attract businesses and developers, Pressable focuses on delivering scalable, secure, and high-performance WordPress hosting.

Managed WordPress hosting providers like Pressable typically stand apart from mainstream shared-hosting providers in three ways:

  • They cost considerably more than shared hosting, but for good reason;
  • They offer a hosting environment designed specifically for WordPress websites, and keep the WordPress core as well as any installed themes and plugins updated for you;
  • They maintain a support staff that has deep WordPress knowledge and is willing to tackle things shared hosting provider support techs usually won't touch — things like theme installation, working with plugins, and fixing broken WordPress installations.

Services and Specializations

Pressable offers one product: managed WordPress website hosting.

Hosting plans vary based on the number of sites you want to host and the number of monthly page views you anticipate. Plans advertised on the website start at 5 websites and 15,000 monthly page views and go up to 20 websites and 100,000 monthly page views. Larger plans are available and top-off with a plan suitable for an unlimited number of page views and an unlimited number of WordPress websites.

Customers who need an out-of-the-box hosting plan are encouraged to contact Pressable directly to build a custom hosting plan.

All Pressable hosting plans include an impressive suite of add-on features:

  • A premium content delivery network (CDN), so your website loads quickly no matter where it's viewed.
  • Servers configured specifically for hosting WordPress websites.
  • Easy creation of WordPress sites on a staging server, 1-click cloning of live sites to a development environment, and the ability to easily push changes from the development environment to the live server.
  • The ability to create temporary credentials for website design and development collaborators. No need to share sensitive credentials with collaborators, create temporary credentials, and delete them after the job is done.
  • SFTP access to the backend of each WordPress installation.
  • Daily backups of all websites with free website restoration from a recent backup.
  • Malware scans and removal performed every night.
  • Managed WordPress core, theme, and plugin updates.
  • Optional SSL certificates for https access.

Infrastructure

Pressable deploys servers in Rackspace data centers. Websites are arranged in what are referred to as galaxies rather than in a dedicated hosting environment. As a result, it's entirely possible that your WordPress websites hosted by Pressable will be hosted in different galaxies and physically stored on different servers.

Support and Customer Service

Support is what really sets Pressable apart from many other hosting providers. All Pressable support personnel are advertised as "WordPress Experts" who are willing and able to help with all aspects of WordPress management. This means that if you have a problem with a WordPress plugin, need help installing a theme, or get locked out of the Admin area of your website, you'll have WordPress experts standing by waiting to help you sort out the problem.

Customer support is available from 8 am to 10 pm CST. However, the entire network is monitored 24/7 and Pressable will respond immediately to system-wide emergencies. In plain English, what this means is that if a server goes down at 2 AM, Pressable will immediately start working on fixing the issue, but if you accidentally lock yourself out of your Admin area at 2 AM, you're going to have to wait until 8 AM when the support staff comes in to work.

Requests for support are made through an online ticketing system and a knowledge base is also available to answer many common questions.

Billing and Payment Policies

When you sign up for a Pressable hosting plan you can select either a yearly or monthly billing cycle. Customers who opt for the yearly plan only pay for 10 months of service and save around 17% as a result on the annual cost of hosting. All plans come with a free 15-day trial in which you can try out Pressable's services without committing yourself to paying for the service.

The terms of service do not clearly delineate refund policies for customers who opt for a yearly plan but cancel prior to the end of the billing cycle. If you are considering paying for a yearly plan and think the refund policy could come into play, reach out to Pressable customer support directly to clarify refund terms prior to making a final decision.

All major credit cards are accepted, and accounts renew automatically using the credit card on file unless the account is canceled in writing or using the account control panel.

Summary

If you're looking for the cheapest environment possible to host a WordPress installation, Pressable is not what you're looking for. However, if you earn a living with your WordPress website(s), a host like Pressable will provide a best-in-class network paired with highly knowledgeable support staff that will take things several steps further than most other hosts. You will pay quite a bit for the first-class treatment, but if you're looking for a premium environment in which to deploy WordPress websites that keep the bills paid, Pressable should be high on your list.
