Did you ever want to set up a blog or a website but not want any of the hassles that can come with self-hosted WordPress?
Well your dreams are about to come true with StudioPress Sites.
It's a new venture by StudioPress.
It brings together the ease of an all-in-one website builder with the flexible power of WordPress.
So you can focus on creating without getting distracted by technology.
The Best WordPress Framework Available Today
StudioPress Sites start with a solid foundation in the Genesis Framework.
It's what I use to power my blog as well as the Dynamik Website Builder.
Out of all the WordPress themes I've ever used it's the one I keep coming back to time and time again.
It powers over 500,000 WordPress sites and is the industry standard design framework.

And with this new venture you get to choose from 20 of them.

There's something there to cover everyone's design tastes!
Faster Than Lightening
Finding a web host can be hit and miss at the best of times.
And there's so many different types of plans available for self-hosted WordPress.
All StudioPress Sites are hosted on Studiopress' WordPress-optimised infrastructure.
This is the same company who owns the Synthesis hosting brand so you know you're in good hands.
Your site's not going to end up on a server with hundreds of other generic WordPress sites on it.
That means your site has room to grow and it won't end up crashing at the point your site starts getting popular.
No Hidden Self-Hosted Hassles
Depending on the type of self-hosted account you have, you may find a lot of extra charges come your way.
Expenses for bandwidth upcharges, extra storage, more CPUs and extra RAM are common.
With StudioPress Sites, there are no extra costs.
So if you get a surprise traffic spike you won't end up with a hit to your wallet.
Only when you hit a consistent rise in traffic or downloads will it be time to upgrade your plan.
Security Like Fort Knox
The Genesis Framework follows all WordPress security best practices.
StudioPress brought in core WordPress developer Mark Jaquith to ensure it has the best security possible.
As well as automatic plugin and theme maintenance, StudioPress Sites also includes:
- intrusion prevention;
- continuous scanning and monitoring for malware; and
- distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection.
With most web hosts you'd have to pay a hefty monthly fee for these extra security measures.
Advanced SEO Features
Having the Genesis Framework as the base of all your sites means they'll always be SEO optimised.
It's search engine optimised by Greg Boser, search engine optimisation pioneer and industry expert.
It supports Schema.org code and uses lightweight code for fast performance.
StudioPress Sites take this even further with:
- advanced schema control,
- XML sitemap generation,
- robots.txt generation,
- enhanced Open Graph output,
- breadcrumb title control, and
- AMP support.
For your peace of mind, StudioPress Sites has automatic theme and plugin maintenance.
So you don't need to worry about manual updates or out of date plugins on your site being vunerable to hackers.
Studiopress have it all covered at no extra charge.
You can, of course, opt out of automatic updates if you want to.
One-Click Plugin Installs
With the number of plugins available, it's hard to know which are trustworthy.
If you look on the WordPress repository you'll see many that haven't received an update for a long time.
StudioPress have this in hand. They've set up a repository on StudioPress Sites of trusted plugins.
These can be set up with one-click and gives you the peace of mind they'll always be up to date.
The current selection includes:
- Design Palette Pro,
- AMP, Beaver Builder Lite,
- Soliloquy Lite,
- Easy Digital Downloads,
- Restrict Content Pro,
- Ninja Forms, and
- WPForms Lite.
And StudioPress will add more going forward.
Round The Clock Support
If ever you have a question or need help you can get hold of the StudioPress Sites support team round the clock.
Even if you're working into the early hours, the support team are available 24/7 to get you back on track.
Don't struggle with something you're stuck on when you can contact the world class support team!
