What Is Full-Service Blog Hosting?
Full-Service means just that…

We can even help you get your blog set up and looking awesome, including things like setting up and customize your design – headers, colors, layout, menus, and navigation, etc. and inserting text ads and banners. Just let us know what you need!
You’ll also get the step-by-step training you need to build a successful blog. This includes a Step-By-Step 90-Day Success Plan AND our Customer Success team will answer ALL of your questions about blogging and making money online.
We are here to help and support you every step of the way.
I’m Really New To Blogging. How Do I Get Started?
- Start your blog in under a minute.
- With the BlogPress 90-Day Success Plan (exclusively for BlogPress customers), you will be miles ahead of the competition!
- Our incredibly friendly and knowledgeable support team is here to help at every step.
Why Isn’t BlogPress Free?
It’s been our experience that you get what you pay for. BlogPress is a Full-Service blog host. That means that whatever you need help with, we are here to help you!
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!
How Does The Free Trial Work & How Much Does It Cost After The Free Trial?
All plans start with a 14-day risk-free trial.
During the sign-up process, you’ll be given the choice of paying monthly or yearly. For example, our standard plan is $97 per year or $14.95 per month.
The month-to-month cost is a little more expensive over the long-term because you get a 40% discount when you pay for the full year in advance.
When you create your account, we will collect your credit card information – you will NOT be charged at this time – we just check to make sure it’s a valid credit card.
If you cancel before the end of the 14 days, your card will never be charged.
If you do NOT cancel before the end of 14 days, your card WILL be charged at the end of your free trial. So if you sign up on a Thursday, your credit card will be billed in 2 weeks on Thursday.
However, there are no long-term contracts so you can cancel your account or switch from monthly to yearly at any time.
There are no additional costs with BlogPress.
Are There Any Long-Term Contracts?
All BlogPress accounts are month-to-month (or yearly) and you can cancel or change your plan at any time. No Contracts. No Commitments. We make blogging simple.
