WordPress & mu now available

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

wordpress_buttonWe are pleased to announce that WordPress 2.7.1 as well as WordPress_mu are now available for hosting, to the general public.

Although we have hosted dozens of WP blogs for various clients and customers in the past, this is the first time that accelerated deployment on a custom and individual basis is available through our builds system.

We can host:

  1. An individual root-access vMachine for you with WPMU and unlimited* blogs and subdomains, which will have a single unified Admin interface (and database) for all blogs.
  2. An individual root-access vMachine for you with the latest WordPress and Debian’s one-copy-multiple-instances configuration, with easy admin for all your blogs, and individual admin interfaces (and databases) for each Blog. Again, blogs are unlimited*
  3. A shared-hosting WordPress blog, on our main WP vMachine, always maintained to the latest WP version.

The first two options are available under our regular vMachine root-access hosting plans, and the third is $100/year with one domain name included. Contact us today for more information.

All our WP instances come with:

We also have used and installed various other plugins on request, including WP-Forum, WP-Polls, and WP-eCommerce. (We also wrote the TrustCommerce payment gateway for WP-eCommerce in PHP).

As always, if you’d like a theme or plugin installed with your order, just place the name and link to it in the “notes” field when you place your order, and we’ll get it done for you.


*The number of blogs is unlimited, just be mindful of your bandwidth allocation chosen with your plan

We’re Jaunty!

Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope is now available for ordering through our eCommerce engine.

UPDATED: Released version now installed.
And it looks great!

Note that as is our usual policy, we had been installing the beta / RC for a couple of weeks prior to the formal launch / release – this is our usual policy.

And remember you can always ask for an earlier beta or alpha to install on request, as well.

Next up for our techs: Rails 2.3!

…We jumped the gun – The prerelease of Ubuntu 9.04 is now available for installation –

We’ll set it up for you with the beta, now, and simply upgrade it when it’s released –
