Blogs / Wordpress Websites
The term "blog" originated from "web log," referring to a sort of online journal. Over time, people learned that by focusing on a particular subject, blog writers (bloggers) could do a great job of promoting their brands, products, or services to the right demographic.
There are multiple blogging platforms out there, and some of them are free, such as Wordpress.com, Blogger.com, or Blogsite.com. While the free blog sites are limited in appearance and function, the software behind those platforms is very powerful. For that reason, we have options available to install Wordpress software on our hosting servers for your very own blog.
We have several different Wordpress options available, ranging from free (loading the software on our server for you if you have a hosting account with us) to Economical (adding custom graphics to a template), to Custom (completely custom design integrated into a Wordpress backend). You can view all our prices on our web design rates page.
Keep in mind that, because Wordpress is an open-source software, and it has become the strong leader in marketshare for website platforms, it has become a huge target for hackers. For this reason, our Wordpress hosting prices are a little higher. The increased price includes a security expert manually checking on every Wordpress site that we host every month to ensure the software is up to date, the plugins are up to date, and other security sweeps. Thus, we tend to recommend Wordpress only if you know you'd like to blog or add pages to your site on a regular basis. Otherwise, we can build a standard website for you (straight HTML or Bootstrap platform), with or without an added Content Management System (CMS) to allow you to edit your content.
