Media Temple Unveils New WordPress Web Hosting Solutions on the AWS Cloud

Media Temple, a Los Angeles-based company providing web hosting and cloud hosting solutions, has launched a new WordPress web hosting offering for enterprises and the agencies that serve them. Leveraging enterprise-tested Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud technology, Media Temple has built their WordPress solutions to meet enterprises’ business continuity needs. 

Media Temple is rolling out two new web hosting plans that combine managed WordPress, AWS hosting and Media Temple’s CloudTech Premier, 24/7 technical support from an in-house team of seasoned cloud architects and administrators. Media Temple’s new WordPress web hosting plans start with 1TB storage and 1.5TB bandwidth – both plans are also expandable as customers’ needs evolve.

Among other services, the (mt) One team would ensure that websites and apps are operating at peak performance, and conduct regular business reviews to discuss upcoming high-traffic events. 

The new Media Temple WordPress web hosting plans were designed to also address these key enterprise-grade organizations’ needs:

  • Scale – The plans’ architecture offers auto-scaling, thus minimizing the risk of downtime by dynamically scaling up and down to handle any large amount of traffic.
  • Availability – The new solutions boast an elastic architecture with redundant systems across dual data centers, which allows for continuous access to sites and apps.
  • Security – Both plans also feature a container-based environment that automatically protects users’ sites and apps against common exploits. Additionally, they come with Amazon CloudFront’s DDoS protection against SYN flood and DNS amplification attacks.
  • Speed – Finally, multi-tiered page and object caching, both server-side and through Amazon CloudFront, a global Content Delivery Network, brings maximum speed to high-traffic sites and apps. 

“Based on the feedback we collected from the WordPress community and our pilot program, we know that enterprises take WordPress very seriously,” said Brendan Fortune, Senior Director of Product Management at Media Temple. “They also want to partner with experts who can unleash the power of the cloud for them and help increase their overall business efficiency. With our highly available managed WordPress solutions, we are bringing them the sophistication of the world’s most popular web and app platform, uniquely combined with high-end, 24/7 support and account management, as well as the reliability of AWS.”
