Do you need a WordPress hosting service that allows you to follow a true Git based development workflow? One with access to shell, WP-CLI, and real DB merging between devel, stage, and production branches while remaining easy to use? Look no further.
One of the biggest headaches for WordPress developers is finding a service that provides all the development tools out of the box, but also fits easily into existing workflow for seasoned developers and novices alike. That's where 45AIR comes in.
The version control system Git is a incredibly powerful tool for development, and makes it possible for people around the world to actively collaborate on massive projects in. If a mistake is made, it is easy to roll back the change to any point in time. Git is the backbone of 45AIR's staging system and give absolute flexibility to develop how you like.
VersionPress is basically Magic. It is the front end plugin to our Git backend that tracks all actions in a WordPress site and gives you a undo button. If a plugin update fails, or you lost a copy of a theme file, or even want to revert post content from a week ago - VersionPress can restore it. Even better, VersionPress provides painless staging. This means that you can easily create a test and then merge them to prod once ready. VersionPress handles situations where your live site had new content in the meantime seamlessly, and yes that includes FULL database merge capability. Learn more →
