The "Jet" of JetPress implies speed, and the "Press" part of the name suggests WordPress, so there it is in a nutshell. JetPress provides super-fast hosting for WordPress websites.

Overview

JetPress

JetPress was established in 2006 in Israel. It’s managed by JetServer, a leading Israeli hosting solutions provider that boasts more than a decade of experience in the industry. This company has more than 300 servers, which it uses to store over 30,000 sites for over 5,000 customers.

Today, JetPress specializes in WordPress hosting solutions. Its website is in Hebrew, but its client area supports twenty-five additional languages.

Features and Ease of Use

JetPress offers three shared hosting plans for WordPress websites; namely JetPress X1, JetPress X3, and JetPress X5. The highest plan provides a free domain, and some of the other features of these plans are:

  • 99.9% server availability
  • Ability to host one to five sites
  • 2 GB to 5 GB storage capacity
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • cPanel control panel
  • Free daily backup
  • One-click WordPress installation and upgrade

The Softaculous one-click installer helps you install and run several popular applications in addition to WordPress, and the staging system for developers lets you test changes to your applications before they go live.

You can enjoy super-fast performance and data resilience because servers use RAID 10 enterprise SSD disks, and server-level caching improves performance even more. The LiteSpeed Web Server offers not only improved performance but also enhanced security, including a Web Application Firewall (WAF) security system for protection against hacking.

Although JetPress itself doesn’t offer any reseller hosting or VPS plans, its parent company offers four virtual servers and three reseller hosting plans.

Pricing and Support

The JetPress shared hosting plans are pricey; almost five times the industry average. You can pay in U.S. dollars or Israeli new shekels via credit card, check, or direct deposit, on billing cycles including monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, and annual. And you can request a refund if you’re not happy.

The JetPress support team can be contacted by telephone or support ticket, and remote support is available via TeamViewer. Unfortunately, my test support ticket went unanswered.

For self-support, you can refer to this provider’s knowledge base or its parent company’s F.A.Q. page. There is also a “WordPress News” section that contains several informative articles about WordPress hosting:

Bottom line on JetPress

JetPress proclaims that “WordPress people love us!”, and this is borne out by the fact that is hosts 30,000+ sites for 5,000+ customers on 300+ servers. The only downside for me is that the plans are slightly pricey.

Pros

  • 13 years of industry experience
  • WordPress specialist hosting
  • Monthly refund on request
  • Various billing and payment methods

Cons

  • Pricey plans
  • Unresponsive customer support

For super-fast WordPress hosting, jump over to JetPress.
