How to Setup Your Pressable Account

After you have chosen and purchased your plan, you will be presented with your dashboard. Here you will fill in your Site Name and then click “Add New Site.” You’ll get a popup notification saying your site was created.

Pressable will then deploy the site and email your credentials for your WordPress admin. Once that is done, you will be notified that your credentials are in your email inbox.

You can now either go to “Settings” and go through the setting of the site or you can go to “WP Admin” which takes you to the site’s backend. At this time your website is actually on what is called the staging website until you purchase a domain from an external vendor and are ready to “launch” your website.

To launch your website you will need to point your newly purchased domain to Pressable’s managed domain servers. You will also enter your domain name where it says “Set Primary Domain.” After that, it takes from 24-48 hours for your domain name to be distributed to the domain servers around the world that then allows your site to be live and reachable from anywhere.

Type of Hosting

Pressable offers WordPress hosting, WooCommerce hosting, and Custom Built Plans.

Support

Support is provided around the clock from a team that is located around the world. Average response time to a ticket is under two minutes. Once you have created your site, there is a small “Live Support (chat)” popup on the bottom right of your screen to assist, if necessary. There is also a Knowledge Base page that has several categories and is searchable with keywords. If you click on the “Support” tab inside you will be taken to a form that you fill out that allows you to submit a ticket.

Server OS

It looks like they are using Linux servers, they don’t expressly say what flavor or versions.

Email

No email support is provided, Pressable’s reasoning is they do not want to be jack of all trades and would rather focus on providing the best WordPress service that they can.

Bandwidth

There are no bandwidth limits on any of the plans with Pressable.

Data

Data can be better equated to number of visits to a site per month. The Personal plan starts out at 30K visits per month with 1 WordPress install and moves up to 400K per months with 20 WordPress installs on the Premium plan. This equates to an average of 20K per site if you are using all 20 WordPress installs.

What is the storage Limit?

With Pressable data storage starts at 20 GB with the Personal plan, stays the same at the Starter Plan then slowly moves up until the Premium plan with 50 GB.

Uptime (SLA)

Pressable is guaranteeing 99.999% uptime. The Pressable platform was built by the same team that built the platforms behind WordPress.com and WordPress VIP with redundant servers.

Backend managed or unmanaged.

Pressable uses a fully managed WordPress hosting model. All updates, security, performance monitoring, and server maintenance is done by Pressable staff. Pressable provides a simple, easy to use dashboard for your use.

Migration Support

You can use Pressable’s Automated Migration WordPress Plugin or have their team do it for you.

Tools & Training

Pressable has a searchable Knowledge Base, a Blog, eBooks, and a newsletter you can join.

 

Pros and cons

Pros

  • Ease of Setup
  • 24/7 Support
  • 99.999% Uptime
  • Free SSL Certificates
  • Free Jetpack Premium
  • Basic WordPress Training

Cons

  • No Email Support

Final Verdict

Pressable appears to have a good model setup for running WordPress efficiently. I would say if you are a casual blogger and are only going to have one website this may be just what you need. However, if you are more business oriented you may want more flexibility, as well as being able to do everything with one provider and not have to go one place for a domain, go another place for an email server, go another place for SEO searches.
