Managed ClassicPress Hosting
What is on Offer
The purpose of this site is to provide you with hosting for your ClassicPress powered website. By managed, I mean we work together to install, configure and maintain your site. Unlike a normal hosting company, I don’t simply sell you a plan and leave the rest up to you to figure out.
Of course, you are certainly free to use your hosting however you like, but my customers are primarily people who are not coding experts and need a helping hand setting up a website and learning how everything works.
What is ClassicPress?
When WordPress introduced Gutenberg in 2018, it caused such an outcry that a group of developers got together to create a fork of WordPress, as it was before blocks were introduced. That fork is ClassicPress. While WordPress moves more and more into the new block system, ClassicPress retains the classic style of WordPress we grew to depend on.
ClassicPress can use any theme or plugin that is compatible with WP 4.9 and uses the same classic editor (TinyMCE) by default. You can still use page builders if you prefer, including Thrive Architect, Beaver Builder and a modified version of Elementor Free.
The fork is fully maintained and receives security updates from the developers at ClassicPress. There are no plans to introduce blocks in any way or make major changes that would break your site. You can even migrate your current WordPress site over and use their plugin to switch everything to ClassicPress. I will help you with that too.
Why Choose Me?
There are plenty of big name hosting companies that offer unlimited everything, with prices from dirt cheap to ridiculously expensive monthly plans. But they will not normally help you with your actual website. I offer an affordable plan, as shown in the table below and work with you to set up your site.
I can install ClassicPress manually and not with a one-click installer, add security plugins and a contact form, and install the premium version of the GeneratePress theme at no extra cost to you. Your site will be configured and tested to ensure things are working as they should before I hand it over to you.
