Global Webhosting provider DreamHost has released the latest version of its ‘DreamPress’ managed WordPress platform. In addition to a variety of under-the-hood performance improvements, DreamHost’s DreamPress managed WordPress packages now include access to an isolated website staging environment.

DreamPress’ staging environment is a private WordPress installation that allows WordPress designers, developers, and content creators to “safely” preview their website changes and additions before copying those alterations live to a public production environment. This provides a private website preview buffer and brings a virtual safety net to WordPress website development.

DreamHost also now includes automated WordPress backups, created on each staging push to production. In the unlikely event that live content doesn’t match its staged counterpart, changes can be rolled back at a moment’s notice.

DreamPress’ latest release sets the stage for our users to do great things!” said John Robison, DreamHost’s Director of Product, Managed WordPress. “WordPress’ most passionate users have told us that the safety and security of a WordPress staging environment is essential to their workflows, and we’re proud to deliver it today as a standard feature of all our managed WordPress packages.”

Founded in 1997, DreamHost has offices in Los Angeles and Orange County, California and in Portland, Oregon. Since its launch in 2013, DreamHost’s DreamPress solution has brought managed WordPress web hosting to the masses backed by “the power of” the company’s open source cloud platform, DreamCompute.
