Announcing a Complete WordPress and Hosting Solution


Starting a new WordPress site from scratch can be cumbersome and the learning curve can be steep, especially if it is your first time creating a website. Many web beginners don’t realize that running one’s own WordPress site has significant dependencies, most notably: 1) a web host/server that meets WordPress’ minimum system requirements, 2) a suitable FTP client for WordPress installations and file modifications, and 3) a deep understanding of troubleshooting and debugging that, frankly, even seasoned web developers dread.

That’s All About to Change

Later this week we are launching Graph Paper Press Pro, an end-to-end web hosting, WordPress, and WordPress theme solution that takes two minutes to activate. Our unique partnership with Page.ly, a company that has revolutionized WordPress hosting, will enable you to focus on what you do best — photos, video, and writing — and lets us handle the rest.

Our team will handle WordPress installations, core software upgrades, website security, installation of must-have plugins, and access to all Graph Paper Press themes (including future releases). In layman’s terms, you will be only two minutes away from launching your own killer website.

Managed Accounts

Each new Pro account will come with three layers of management: 1) Server management by Firehost, 2) WordPress management by Page.ly, and 3) theme management by Graph Paper Press.

In the past you would have been responsible for all three, which slowed your projects’ speed to market, increased your risk of being hacked, and probably caused many, many long nights of performing online searches for fixes to simple missteps you may have made along the way.

Good riddance to all that!

Specifics

Here is a brief list of what will be included:

  • Free domain
  • FTP access
  • 10 email accounts
  • 35 gb of disk space
  • 100 gb traffic
  • 64 mb ram
  • 20-plus themes from Graph Paper Press

Prelaunch Special: Save 50%

Sign up here and when we launch we will email you a 50% off coupon for the first year of hosting. This discount will expire at the end of September.  Only 100 usages are permitted, so whatcha waiting for?

    I’m already a paying GPP user and I use page.ly + photoshelter. What should I do now?

  • http://graphpaperpress.com Graph Paper Press

    That’s a great question, Matthew. Here is what I would consider:

    1. DISK SPACE & BANDWIDTH: Pro accounts have much more disk space and bandwidth allocated to them as opposed to the default page.ly account. We created the Pro account specifically with photographers, videographers and prolific publishers in mind.

    2. COST – Add up your annual web-related expenses and see if your existing setup is cheaper or more expensive than it would be otherwise.

    3. MIGRATION – You would be responsible doing an export/import of your site from your existing page.ly site to your new Pro site. These are two different billing systems, different servers, and different WordPress configurations.

    Hope that helps!

      Unfortunately, one of us got the stomach flu and we had to postpone the launch until later this week. Oh, the humanity! I’ll update the blog when we launch. Thanks for your patience!

        Can you give any exact dates yet? I’m waiting for this launch to get my new site up and going.

    Perhaps I’m missing something but is it possible to use your hosting service as a complete web site solution (including photo file storage, etc.)? I’m looking for a new hosting company for my photography web site and I really like the themes you have but I’m not really interested in PhotoShelter’s service as well. Can it all be done with your service?

    Can we still use a customized site theme if we go with this option? (i.e. later on if I want to add buttons, headers, modules, etc.)

    • http://graphpaperpress.com Graph Paper Press

      Yes! You have the ability to add and modify themes.
