Our Timeline

Follow our journey through the years, from our beginning in Berlin to our newly designed dashboard.

2017

O3

Launched O3, our newly designed dashboard. We introduced a series of features like WP Intelligence with performance and cache metrics, servers locations and bots stats. Open-sourced Zinc, a Route 53 zone manager.

2016

Z3

We open-sourced Z3: an error-resilient ZFS to S3 backup tool, because we wanted to offer an extra safety step and minimize the risk of loss in the form of dependable off-site backups. It assures the security of our customer's data.

2015

Top tier

We were named in the Top Tier WordPress Hosting Performance league by ReviewSignal’s 2015 WordPress Hosting Performance Benchmarks. Introduced Silver, a standalone Django app for automatic billing.

2014

Helium, Gitium and Gitfs

Launched Helium, our geo-serving hosting package for WordPress. Open-sourced Gitium, a git integration for WP and Gitfs, a version controlled file system. They were pivotal projects that steered our infrastructure forward.

2013

Breaking records

The year of breaking records: 150.000 real-time visitors on a single page, 6 million pageviews within an hour on a single site, 45 million pageviews during 24h on a single site and 2.2 billion pageviews on our busiest month.

2012

Hydrogen powered WordPress

We introduced Hydrogen, a managed WordPress hosting service. It was built to be simple to use and extremely efficient for growing sites running WordPress. It is integrated with the Papertrail API on top of our logging architecture.

2011

Berlin era

Presslabs was born. At first, we produced amazing WordPress hosting experience from Betahaus in Berlin, Germany and later on from our hometown, Timisoara in Romania. We introduced our control panel: O2 (Oxygen).

2010

Second customer

We welcomed our second customer, Freshome. An interior design and architecture website, which had an astonishing growth through the years. We proudly provided high-class hosting experience.

2009

First customer

Hosted our first customer, FREDO&PID’JIN, as a side job, while also working at an agency. To this day, we are still delighted to be collaborating.
