  • WordPress Web Hosting Options

  • In general, a live website consists of a domain name (yearly cost), web hosting (monthly or yearly cost), and website design/development (project-based cost).

    When it comes to hosting the WordPress Marketing Websites we build, you have two options:

    • let us host your Marketing Website = iBF Managed Hosting, OR
    • you use your own hosting = DIY Unmanaged Hosting (aka Self Hosting)
  • iBF Managed Hosting vs. DIY Unmanaged Hosting

    The DIY Unmanaged Hosting option is best for those who have some technical knowledge AND the time to spend on tinkering with the technical side of WordPress maintenance.

    Our iBF Managed Hosting option is for those who value their time and who understand that certain things are best left to the experts!


    The table below provides a side-by-side comparison of these two options.

  • iBF Managed Hosting with Rent-to-Own Payment

    With our Rent-to-Own payment option, iBF Managed Hosting is REQUIRED for the duration of the payment period.
    If, after the website creation costs have been fully paid, you no longer wish for us to continue managing your WordPress hosting needs, we can help you move your website to your own hosting account for you to manage it yourself.

  • NOTES:

    • iBF Managed Hosting services are ONLY available for Marketing Websites hosted on OUR servers.
    • we do NOT provide any maintenance / management service for clients with self-hosted websites.
    • choose the DIY Unmanaged Hosting option IF and ONLY IF you are prepared to manage your WordPress hosting yourself OR you are prepared to pay extra to hire someone to manage it for you.
