  • 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.
