Our Creator Plan is for you if you just need a secure home for your WordPress site with a company that’s been hosting for almost 20 years, backed by a founder with 10 years experience in education. We’ll setup your WordPress site, install your choice of StudioPress theme, and setup your first email address. You can take it from there. We’ll keep your site up and running smoothly while you focus on your message and content.
RED Recommended WordPress Plugins
- Jetpack: Jetpack (free version) enhances your WordPress experience by providing downtime monitoring, increasing image loading speed, providing stats analysis, related posts, and gallery and slideshow tools.
- WP Super Cache: This plugin generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog, which will seriously speed up your website. After a html file is generated your webserver will serve that file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts.
- Yoast SEO: Yoast is the #1 WordPress plugin that will help you boost your search engine optimization. This means more visitors will find your site from Google, Bing, and social media. The plugin will also help you boost your reader’s engagement once they’re on your site.
- Contact Form 7: This plugin manage multiple contact forms. You can customize the form and the mail contents flexibly with simple markup. The form supports Ajax-powered submitting, CAPTCHA, Akismet spam filtering and more.
- Login Limit Attempts Reloaded: LLAR stops brute-force attacks and optimizes your site performance by limiting the number of login attempts that are possible through the normal login as well as XMLRPC, Woocommerce and custom login pages.
Our Creator Premium plan is the perfect fit if you need us to scaffold your launch and provide mentoring along with way. We’ll not only complete the initial installation and configuration of your WordPress site and our RED+ recommended plugins, but we’ll configure up to five pages of your existing print or non-print text on your pages or posts. We’ll also provide up to an hour of tutoriing within the first three months to help you learn how to make the best use of your site.

RED Ecommerce & Mail Extension Recommendations
The following extensions can be installed and configured as an additional service.
You will also need to purchase the software from the vendor.

- ConvertKit: This is my favorite email marketing software since I can have individual subscribers on multiple lists without being counted more than once. You can start with the free account for your first 1,000 subscribers.
- aWeber: I used aWeber for email marketing for many years and they now have a free version for up to 500 subscribers.
