Sponsor Spotlight: SeverPress


How does WordCamp Las Vegas sponsor ServerPress.com make the life of a WordPress Developer easier? Simply put: Less brain damage. Says Marc Benzakein, ServerPress Operations Manager, “We recognize that no matter how seasoned the developer, time is always a crucial element and all of us have found ourselves up against it, many times despite our best effort. Our whole goal with our products is to make things easy enough for the least experienced designer or developer yet robust enough for the most experienced coder.”

DesktopServer from ServerPress.com makes it simple to create local wordpress sites in just a matter of a few clicks. With DesktopServer you can design, develop and deploy WordPress solutions quickly and easily. It is the ONLY localhost server that integrates WordPress with Adobe® Dreamweaver®, Panic’s Coda and Diet Coda with WYSIWYG features for theme design and web developer professionals, offers multi-site, import and export (deployment) of archive files such as BackupBuddy, Duplicator, BackWPUp, BackUp WordPress, InfiniteWP & ManageWP, create custom blueprints and a lot more.

“Our whole philosophy is focused on saving people time,” explains Benzakein. “We’ve all heard the phrase ‘time is money’ and in our experience, especially in the creative world of web development, it couldn’t be more true. For us, it goes beyond the time/money equation. Everything we do is from a ‘time is LIFE’ approach. By creating tools that are extremely easy to use and help save time, we believe that we’re empowering our customers to have more free time, make more money, and even more importantly, have a life. Our favorite interactions with customers are the ones where they tell us how much time they saved. It means we hit our goal.”

ServerPress clients range anywhere from people who want to simply put up a personal website or blog, companies who have their own in-house website creators, to designers and developers who make their living building websites. Pretty much anyone who wants to build an online presence utilizing a CMS of some sort (but mostly WordPress) can use DesktopServer.

“The growth of WordPress over the past has been phenomenal and it’s not simply because of the software. In fact, I think that the software is actually a pretty small part of what has made it so successful,” Benzakein states. “It’s been said that the Community is what makes it special by so many people that it may almost sound cliché. But that doesn’t make it any less true. And as long as the WordPress Community maintains its philosophies, it’s just going to continue to grow and thrive.” Thankfully, we can count on ServerPress to help us grow with it.
