Three Types of Website Hosting to Choose From!
Not everyone’s needs are the same. We’ve worked with small start-ups to companies doing millions in revenue per year. We’ve helped writers just getting started with their first blog up to best-selling authors with growing platforms. And every one of them needs their website to perform well no matter what stage they’re at.
So we’ve developed website hosting services that meet whatever your needs.
Website Hosting Services
The easiest way to start a blog/website for free or very low cost. Your website runs on the FistbumpPress platform, designed primarily for writers who need a no-fuss solution.
Managed WordPress Hosting
Built on shared hosting servers, without the need become a webmaster. You own everything and get the full power of WordPress, but with our team helping you manage it so you don’t have to worry about the technology.
Dedicated server hosting, designed to give you premium performance (not impacted by what other sites on a server might be doing). A great solution for website owners who need more power and stability with your growth.
Can’t go back! I’ve been a do-it-yourselfer for awhile with WordPress and Weebly and Blogger before that. The problem? I know enough to get myself in trouble and then forget how I got there – or worse when the sites change where they put things. As I wanted to look more professional, I took the leap and signed up for Fistbump and now, I can’t ever go back!! They explained all the things for me and are available when I have questions. Great team and I’m so thankful! If you’re on the fence, make the leap. You won’t regret it!
How do I know which plan is right for me?
Our all-inclusive hosting services are all about the platform. It uses the WordPress platform (just like the free/low-cost wordpress.com websites), but is powered by our team at Fistbump Media to bring you the best tools and resources you need in your site.
And that’s why we call it FistbumpPress!
The big benefit to this is that it’s very low cost, and practically zero maintenance. But it is limited in the sense that you cannot just load up whatever plugins you want.
This type of hosting is a great option for people who are just getting started, and only need to reliable space to share their content and start growing an online presence.
Managed WordPress Hosting
Our Managed WordPress hosting plans are what’s referred to as a “self-hosted” website solution. This means that WordPress is installed on your own hosting space, and you are not limited in what you can do within your website (as it relates to plugins and themes).
As a result, you get much more flexibility in design and functionality, which is important when your platform is growing and when you have a vision for something specific you want to do.
Your hosting space is on a shared hosting server, which means that there are several other accounts hosting their websites on the same space. But our servers are optimized for WordPress performance, and managed 24/7 in great data centers in Orlando and New York.
The big key to these plans is that you’re not on your own to manage the WordPress services that you, ultimately, are running on your own. Our team regularly monitors security, runs updates, and manages most of the technical aspects of the site for you.
This is a great option for most website owners who need more flexibility and control, but don’t want to worry about whether everything is working or not (and having to fix it when it’s not).
Dedicated hosting is the ultimate solution for website owners who want a strong solution for growing and high-performing websites.
It’s everything we offer in our Managed WordPress Hosting plans, but rather than being on a shared server (with shared resources), your website is on it’s own dedicated space. And that means you don’t ever have to worry about whether spikes in traffic end up creating a bottleneck (due to resources needed for other sites on the same server) and limiting people trying to visit your site.
With plans starting at just $20/mo, it’s a great way to set yourself up for growth and have a platform that can grow with you.
