Ann Arbor, Michigan, November 10, 2011 – Nexcess, a web hosting provider with data center facilities in Dearborn and Southfield, Michigan, has announced the release of a new web hosting platform that is designed specifically for hosting WordPress web sites.
While many web hosting companies tend to carry a very generic focus in their product lineups, Nexcess has spent their 10+ years in the web hosting industry focusing on being very good at providing hosting for just a few scripts. This is shown very clearly in the company’s relationship with eBay-owned Magento, with which Nexcess maintains a gold level partnership, a title held by only four other companies. As with Nexcess’ popular Magento MAG-SIP hosting plans (which stands for Secure Isolated Platform), the new WordPress web hosting options (similarly titled WP-OBP, or “WordPress Optimized Blog Platform”), are a unique and isolated web hosting environment that has been specially optimized for the best possible web hosting experience for a WordPress site.
“Blog hosting is a competitive market, but so was the eCommerce hosting market when we first entered into it now more than a decade ago,” commented Chris Wells, President & CEO of Nexcess, “We believe that the same approach to hosting solutions that won us our close relationship with Magento will translate very nicely in bringing the perfect set of blog hosting plans to the WordPress community.”
To start the company’s new relationship with the WordPress community off on the right foot, Nexcess also announced last month that they will be sponsoring WordCamp Detroit 2011, set to take place this coming weekend. At this event, representatives from Nexcess will be available ‘in the flesh’, and ready to discuss everything that the company is doing to provide a web hosting environment that is truly optimized for the best possible WordPress blogging experience.
Nexcess is an Ann Arbor, Michigan-based managed hosting company founded in 2000, with wholly-owned data centers located in Dearborn, and Southfield, Michigan (opening sometime this quarter). Nexcess offers a variety of hosting services ranging from entry-level packages to specially-catered clustered/complex configurations, with an emphasis on mission-critical hosting for high-profile eCommerce web sites.
