Frequently Asked Questions

Blog Hosting - is this just WordPress hosting?

No! Our WordPress hosting is specially built from the ground up to optimize for WordPress installations. Not every other blog platform would benefit equally from those optimizations. Our Blog Hosting plans use our advanced cloud application hosting, combined with Softaculous, to give you a choice from many different blogs that you can install and host in your account.

Are there costs associated with the blogs?

No. All the included blog applications can be installed freely, because they are open source. One click is all it takes to install your blog and be up and running in seconds.

Which blog is the best?

Choosing a blog platform is much like choosing clothing or automobiles. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses. Some are designed to be light and nimble, while others are created to integrate easily, be extensible, include internationalization, comply with standards fully, etc.... Try out a few different ones, or read reviews online and decide what option is right for you. You never know - you could end up being a Pubvana or Textpattern fan.

How often should I make new blog posts?

If you are looking to improve your organic search rankings and traffic, then there are a few rules of making new blog posts.

1) Post original content rather than copy and pasting something you have already done or something done by other people.

2) Post quality content. It is nice to know what you had for breakfast, on rare occasions, but write about things that will benefit your readers - give them your original thoughts on subjects that can somehow make them happy, healthy, wealthy or remove problems, pains and burdens in their everyday (or every workday) life.

3) Post more frequently rather than less frequently. If you can post 2 quality blog posts per week, then do so. If you can only post 2 per month, then that is still better than 2 per year. The most popular sites online typically post multiple times per day, but then again, they have large teams of writers and editors. Just do what you can, but make an effort and you will find that your rankings on priority words, and long tail uncommon phrases, brings in many new users to you website. At that point, it is up to you to convert them into paying customers.

Why is managed blog hosting so important?

Running and hosting a website blog takes effort, just like running a business and managing all those details life throws your way. Your time is the most valuable commodity you control. Unless you want to spend your time learning all the technical matters that our server admin team and tech support team have mastered, you should choose managed hosting and enjoy the peace of mind, knowning your blog hosting is secure, fast, and online, all the time.
