At My Author Home, I’m all about offering authors reasonable, safe website hosting without huge price tags. I also don’t want authors to get sucked into other free sites that have dubious terms of services. That’s why I offer web hosting through My Author Home.
I also hear a lot of times that WordPress is too much of a hassle; it requires too much technical know-how. That’s where the “managed” part of the hosting I offer comes into play. When you host with My Author Home, I will install WordPress for you, add my favorite plugins including security protection, and keep them updated for you at no additional charge. That’s right. I will take care of the technical side of your site, so you can focus on the content and writing side.
In addition, I’m available through Facebook or email (though I prefer email) to answer questions. Quick questions get answered. Something that’s more indepth and may require some assistance, as a hosting client you get a discount on my virtual assistant rates. But on average, my hosting clients usually get a free hour out of my each month. I’m very generous with my time.
The cost? $11.50/month.
Most managed wordpress sites run closer to $35-50/month from what I’ve seen. So that’s why I say you get a managed site at a self-hosted cost. Oh and the peace of mind? That’s totally priceless.
