Isn’t Blog Hosting The Same As Web Hosting?
You wouldn’t want to build your house from the ground up. Instead you want to move into a well-built, excellently maintained home so that all you have to do is “decorate” and add your own personal style.
Blog Hosting does just that! We provide a “well-built and excellently maintained home” for your blog so that you can focus on blogging without having to worry about all the techie stuff. The last thing you want to do is worry about these 57 Things yourself!
Why Isn’t BlogPress Free?
It’s been our experience that you get what you pay for. Yes, there are free blogging services out there, but there are a few caveats:
- They run whatever ads they want on your blog
- They tell you that you can’t make money with your blog
- They’ll take down your blog if you say something they don’t like or if you get too much traffic.
- They fail to provide help and support when you’re struggling
We want you to succeed! We want to see you get lots of traffic and make tons of money. We will never take down your blog for being successful or for our own personal and moral beliefs. In fact, the only reason that we will ever take down your blog is if you’re doing something illegal that will get us in trouble.
We are here for you to provide help when you get stuck, give you the best training and blogging tips we’ve learned ourselves from years of experience, and to cheer you on as you become successful!
Will I Get To Choose How My Blog Looks And Feels To My Visitors?

Will BlogPress Help Search Engines Find My Posts?
We automatically optimize your blog so the search engines can find it easily. We also have advanced in-content optimization that will help you tweak every post! When you use BlogPress, you can be sure that your blog won’t stay hidden in obscurity. We make it easy for search engines and visitors to find you!
I Already Have A Blog. Can I Move It To BlogPress? Why Should I?
You can move an already existing blog and domain name to BlogPress without losing anything!

We’ll start doing all of your updates, installing the newest plugins and software to make your blog run faster and smarter and the only thing you have to do is, well…blog!
