Automaattic is the parent company that owns WordPress, which is the world’s largest blogging platform. They offer a cloud hosting solution focused on high end sites. This is a very expensive hosting option that is really for only corporate sites and other large platforms. Since WordPress hosts tens of millions of websites, however, they clearly know what they are doing in this area.
Uptime & Reliability
With excellent security, spam protection, DDoS protection and more, this is a very stable hosting platform. In addition, your site will be running on the WordPress.com grid, which has more than 3000 servers in multiple data centers. This will help ensure your site never drops unexpectedly
Very Focused Set of Features
This hosting solution is really only for certain types of sites that need a very focused hosting solution. The average blog will never want anything like this. For major corporate sites or sites that need to be available to millions of people, however, this company has great features. THey are focused on providing fully salable solutions to meet anyone’s needs.
You’ll get access to a team of WordPress experts, high quality tech support, managed software and hardware, DDoS protection, SEO, unlimited disk space and bandwidth and much more. For those who need it, this really is a great hosting solution.
Their support teams are experts at what they do. They are there 24/7 and will help you with any type of issues you’re having. The team supports millions of sites, and you’ll get the VIP support options so you can be confident any issues you are having will be addressed very quickly.
You’ll be Paying for What You Get
The price is very expensive. $5000 per month for their full service, or $1250 if you only want their support services ( you handle the hosting on your own). Obviously these prices are high, but given their target audience this is a situation of ‘you get what you pay for.’
If you Need it…You Need it
The target audience for this hosting solution is very narrow. For those who need this type of hosting, however, they will do a great job. It is expensive, but when you have a massive site that gets tons of traffic, sometimes you need the best.
