GreggPress is a managed WordPress hosting service provided by GreggHost. It’s a scalable service that lets customers manage their WordPress sites with easy pricing and additional features like server reliability, caching, and memory.

technical information
Each GreggPress instance is built up on OpenStack, GreggHost’s cloud computing service. A new GreggPress service is now available:

Technical details

Access to root, sudo, and FTP is disabled (you can still log in via SFTP or SSH).
comes with a free secure ‘Let’s Encrypt’ certificate installed.
Depending on the plan selected, it can be customized to its available memory and storage.
covers the most recent (as well as the two prior) WordPress Core versions (see version numbering for more information).
For the previous three major WordPress versions, this includes any PHP version that WordPress recommends.
GreggHost has also included built-in server caching, which:

is automatically configured for GreggPress customers and acts as a proxy in front of Apache and PHP to reply to web requests. This set up can scale to very high levels of traffic because the WordPress stack is incredibly effective at caching material. It also comes with a static IP address.

Service restrictions

GreggPress is a managed WordPress service, which means GreggHost has limited the actions users can perform that could ruin their WordPress site irreversibly.

Every  package includes a single domain as well as a staging site. You can also mix and match it with shared, virtual private server, and dedicated hosting.

Current restrictions

There are no root SSH keys or admin users.
FTP access is not available. The domain you pick and one SFTP (optional SSH) user will be configured automatically.
Databases and hostnames cannot be added or removed. For WordPress, the database and hostname will be created automatically.
Wildcard DNS could not be added.
It is not possible to remove the SSL certificate that was installed automatically.
It is not possible to change the HTTPS settings.
Installs via a network (multisite) are not supported.
GreggHost automatically installs and updates a small number of needed plugins.
It is not possible to add unique IP addresses.

User support

GreggPress is backed by some of GreggHost’s best tech support, all of whom are WordPress experts. They were chosen as the best-in-class to represent GreggHost and WordPress, and support you with any problems with your  site, after extensive training and evaluation by in-house WordPress core contributors. They know how to find someone who does if they don’t have the solution.

All of this is to say that GreggHost assistance is not a substitute for a professional website developer (if you require one); GreggHost can assist you with installing and configuring plugins, but it cannot create new plugins or themes for you. In addition, if a plugin or theme is producing issues, GreggHost may be able to help by removing the plugin/theme and recommending alternatives.
