    Hi all

    I am currently exploring various WordPress MU / BuddyPress hosting / mangement options for a client and wondering if there is anything in Auomattic’s plan’s to offer a similar service to the VIP Hosting that is currently offered for WordPress but for MU / BuddyPress?

    I am just about to email Automattic direct but thought a post here might get a quicker response.

    Cheers

    Email is probably going to get you a quicker answer. Only a couple of Automattic employees lurk here afaik.

    Also, Automattic’s VIP hosting is provided to just a very few, select, large clients. It is not something you can simply decide to purchase.

    So, my guess is that, yes, Automattic will offer BuddyPress installs to their very few VIP clients, but it will not be available to the vast majority of users.

    Thanks for the further comments Jeff.

    I realise that the VIP service is for larger / select clients but sometimes us small time developers might stumble onto managing the next Facebook for a client and not be able to scale such a site quickly enough :)

    I have already explored some other avenues myself but maybe a BuddyPress site that could be considered high profile / having a great deal of potential could get Automattic to trial such a BuddyPress management service?

    Will let you know whether this goes anywhere via the Automattic route!

    Automattic have got back to me which is great as I had a feeling they might not even respond unless my email address ended with @microsoft.com etc ;)

    Good to know they are at least replying to us smaller companies!
