Eve.io – Is 8Bit getting into hosting?

I was reading the new WP Daily site earlier today and noticed in their footer that they're hosted by “Eve.” Intrigued, I clicked it to see a simple landing page, but it's clearly branded as a future 8Bit product. I heard them mention that they'd thought about hosting in one of their Hello Dolly podcasts, so I wonder if this means it's a done deal. With the Standard theme already, and a potential hosting platform (which I'd guess will be a reseller for an existing platform), it appears we may have a better idea how WP Daily plans to monetize their investment in that site.

  1. I hope not. I mean, what do a bunch of loud-mouthed and opinionated WordPress hipster kids know about hosting? Sounds like a recipe for disaster :-).

    1. Everything you guys do is a recipe for disaster that’s what makes it so much fun to watch! Your like the daredevils of the interwebs. Kinda.

    1. I hear a gator’s soft spot is right under the chin. Just give it a little scratch and you’re good to go.

  2. You’ve got eagle-eyes I must say. I could have sworn that wasn’t there when I looked earlier on in the day. It’s an interesting name Eve, especially for hosting. Even more interesting is that they’ve stuck with the .io TLD, it’s not exactly a popular one right?

    Saying all that, there must be a big enough demand for this from Standard Theme customers? If we look at WebSynthesis, it’s been optimised for Genesis users. Then you have WooThemes with theirs (which at the time of writing, is still under wraps). I’ll take a stab and say it’ll be optimised for all their themes. It’s like people are moving away from your “bog-standard” host (no harm intended), and going down a more specialist route!

    I think it’ll be interesting to see things unfold … 🙂

  3. i have now declared that your name be upgraded from ‘Krogsalot’ to ‘Inspector Krogsalot’, a’la Inspector Gadget.

    Gogo Gadget Krogsalot!

    1. Tantalizing. @saddington, I’ve just submitted the invite. We just so happen to be comparing the Managed Hosting world in prep for a launch. I’m anxious to get more details.
