The biggest difference between Media Temple and Pressable
Media Temple sold a wide variety of server setups, such as shared hosting, VPS, or dedicated servers. This was great news for people running a ton of sites with a variety of applications. If you wanted something special just for WordPress, they had their own managed WordPress plans, but nothing really changed at the server level.
At Pressable, all plans are on a cloud hosting platform that is custom-built for WordPress. You won’t find any other applications at Pressable—WordPress is everything to us.
When Media Temple is absorbed into GoDaddy, this distinction will be even sharper for people running WordPress sites. GoDaddy’s primary product isn’t even web hosting—it’s selling domains!
