wpUP.io is a Managed WordPress solution and Dashboard all in one.
You provide us access to a cloud provider like DigitalOcean and then we go ahead and create and configure the server. Once setup we take care of the management of it such as making backups, updating the software and patching security issues.
These are your servers on your own DigitalOcean account.
We currently support DigitalOcean. We have plans for adding Linode in the near future.
Since the resources are shared between hundreds or thousands of sites you are likely to run into the "bad neighbour" effect. What this means is that another site (that you dont own) can use more of their fare share of resources and starve your sites.
Managed WordPress caters to a very specific niche, meaning that we can fine-tune and optimize the server for running WordPress. Shared hosting must support a wide variety of sites and cannot be optimized for a specific need.
wpUp.io is currently in public beta and we have not announced our pricing yet. What we can say though is that pricing will be based on the number of servers we manage for you and not per site.
Enter your e-mail in the form above and we will send you a beta key that you must enter when signing up.
