Our mission is to bring hospitality to WordPress hosting. We see publishers as our valued guests, and we are dedicated
to helping them welcome their readers as well.
Our main focus is to provide high-performance WordPress hosting and intelligence for the most demanding sites.
Customers or work colleagues, we are all part of a single team–“us”. What can be improved will be done so together.
There is no “best”. There are only really good things that we are working on, and which we are continuously improving.
Being honest and transparent with a touch of modesty is the foundation of Presslabs.
We are actively contributing to the open software ecosystem and to our society, and to the environment.
Follow our journey through the years, from our beginning in Berlin to our newly designed dashboard.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
