WordPress.com VIP is reserved for the clients that spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on hosting annually. Though it is an advertised service, the vast majority of people looking to host their blogs on WordPress.com with VIP service will not qualify for the service. This decision as to who qualifies for VIP service lies exclusively with Automattic and there is no real formula. Generally speaking, a VIP candidate has tons of traffic and is high profile.
Some VIP customers include CNN.com, the GigaOM Network, the Wall Street Journal's All Things Digital, Fox News, and more.
