We include security monitoring, backups, access to site analytics and updates to the WordPress core, themes and plugins at no additional cost to you. All of these services are included in your hosting package. All you need to concentrate on is updating your content although we provide content support services.
That’s no problem. You can keep your existing hosting provider or migrate to our hosting environment. It’s your choice depending on your needs. If you decide you want to migrate to our hosting, we can perform the migration service for you.

You can easily register your own domain name with an organization known as a registrar (like GoDaddy or Network Solutions). You provide the registrar with your contact details (name, address, email, phone) and they will send you a reminder when it is time to renew your domain. Domain registration usually costs between $25-$35 per year (with discounts for multi-year renewals). After your hosting account is setup, we will point your domain to your new hosting account and your site will be active.
