Where scalable web hosting meets simplicity.
Host Drupal, WordPress and TYPO3 sites on scalable, flexible infrastructure that just works. DDEV-Live reduces the complexity of hosting modern websites so you can focus on delivering great projects using your favorite workflows.
"Having written a book on DDEV-Local, I'm very pleased to say migrating the DrupalEasy Academy site to DDEV-Live hosting was straightforward and fast. Plus the support team is always eager to help out with everything from basics to weird edge-cases!"DrupalEasy Academy
"The new TYPO3 Book project has benefited everyone in the community by partnering with DDEV for hosting - together we've contributed to make DDEV-Live a practical platform for all TYPO3 users."TYPO3 Book
On the horizon:
Connect directly to your GitHub or other Git repository provider. This allows you to directly move code within your Git workflow and include DDEV-Live where you need it.
DDEV allows anyone — anywhere — to develop and test on their own machine, quickly deploy to a staging environment, rapidly deliver code, and share projects with clients and team members.
Consistency & Parity
DDEV-Live drives consistency across dev-to-deploy workflows to provide increased reliability and repeatability. Teams can all be on the same page wherever they are thanks to automated builds and environment parity.
Dev, Test, Prod
Reduce the firefighting, increase reliability at scale, and deliver engaging digital experiences faster than the competition. DDEV-Live continues the pattern from DDEV-Local to help your teams develop, deploy, and maintain web applications using repeatable standards.
Backups are configurable from the DDEV-Live CLI for each site. Set the number of backups to retain for each project.
Multiple CMS Platform Support
DDEV-Local and DDEV-Live currently support Drupal, TYPO3, WordPress, and other PHP applications with the flexibility to support even more project types.
Massively scalable industry standard open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Designed on the same principles that allow Google and others to run billions of containers a week.
All our infrastructure, websites and servers, are monitored continuously, allowing us to detect and proactively address issues before they escalate.
Deployments to our environments are as simple as pushing a branch to your GitHub or other hosted version control system. DDEV-Live also can serve as a testing or QA stage in your CI/CD pipelines.
Self-healing & load balancing
Kubernetes manages nodes and balances traffic according to needs, replacing failed containers and ensuring traffic increases (and decreases) are handled automatically, or the way you need it to be configured.
Open Source Ecosystem
We’re committed to open source opportunities and projects, just like you. That’s why we built DDEV using proven technologies like Docker, Kubernetes, Helm, Prometheus, Jenkins, and more.
DDEV-Live is backed by specific service guarantees for enterprise level accounts, product engineering team access for sudden bug fixes and issues, and performance tuning. We’re committed to continuing to improve the platform and add the features you need, and always welcome conversations with our customers.
Preview is a feature set available in every plan on the DDEV platform. These features will facilitate collaboration, testing, and review without the need to configure an additional environment.
DDEV-Live includes a set of features that allow a developer to quickly spin up preview sites on our hosting infrastructure. A Preview site is an unpublished site built from code in a pull or merge request you have made against a Git branch that is deployed on DDEV-Live.
Preview uses the DDEV Preview bot to create sites. Reduce time spent on context switches: call the bot with a comment directly on your GitHub pull request or GitLab merge request against a branch referenced by DDEV-Live. The bot returns a URL for a temporary site.
Enhanced PR Reviews
Share new features with anyone, anywhere: Preview sites are available via URL for the lifespan of the PR they are created on. Share with reviewers and stakeholders for high fidelity feature previews.
No orphaned projects to count against your workspace limits: Preview sites are deleted when the associated PR is closed, keeping your DDEV workspace tidy.
Manage and maintain an automated workflow: Set an expiration timer for any site. Automatically delete sites at a configured interval from the creation timestamp.
Quickly identify projects in your sites list by client, lifecycle stage, or another taxonomy that suits your process. Set tags on your deployed sites in order to sort and identify projects quickly.
