We specialize in hosting Wordpress, a content management system that allows you to create websites and blogs from an easy-to-use control panel. There's no html or programming experience necessary; it's a lot like using Microsoft Word. You can use our service to create a web presence for your business, or make a personal blog to share your thoughts with the world. What makes us special is that we automagically install and setup your Wordpress installation without you needing to do anything! We keep your software up to date, curate plugins and themes that you can install with just a few mouseclicks, and provide server hosting. What this basically means is that we do EVERYTHING necessary to keep your website up, running, and secure. You can focus on growing your business, brand, or internet presence without needing to worry about the technical details. That's what we do - and we're very good at it.
We're much more than just a hosting account! Besides, even if that's all you're comparing, is it really more expensive? Even if you have the knowledge to install, setup, and manage a Wordpress installation on a cheap hosting account, you'd still have to purchase some of the themes and plugins we provide for you. We offer thousands of dollars worth of licensed, premium themes and plugins from designers like StudioPress, Elegant Themes, WPMUDev and more. The breakeven point there is about 15 years, and that still doesn't take into consideration the amazing hardware and software configurations your website is hosted on, nor the likelyhood that once your Wordpress website begins to get popular you'd have to upgrade to a more expensive plan. There are no bandwidth limitations on with our service, and we can host almost all of the most demanding blogs and websites without any additional cost to you.
We've been hosting Wordpress blogs since 2004, back when Wordpress was in version 1 and before there was even a plugin system. We host hundreds of standalone websites, and run the forum hosting service ProphpBB.com, which has hosted tens of thousands of forums since 2007. Simply put, we have the knowledge and resources to provide an amazing website experience for you and your visitors. Our service is a near perfect fit for professional web developers looking to get their clients up and running quickly, and for hobbyists wishing to have a website with an easy-to-edit interface that requires no programming or html experience, with a very small learning curve. We also offer support to help you work through the initial setup and management of your website.
Also, and this is important... your website will be FAST and RESPONSIVE! This is super important today, with Google and other search engines ranking websites higher when they look good on both desktop and mobile devices, and when they load fast. We have a highly-optimized setup that returns excellent results from speed and performance optimization tools like GMetrix, Google Pagespeed, Yahoo YSlow, Pingdom, etc. We're FAST and we look good doin' it, too!
You own your data, not us. We're just your humble webhosting provider. You can leave anytime you want, the data is yours to export. We even make sure this is easy for you, there's an export option in your control panel that you can use to assist in the transfer of all of your users, posts, images etc. to any other Wordpress installation you choose. We'd be sad to see you go, but it's your choice.
