WordPress.com, the popular blog hosting site, has added another service level to their paid services. Now businesses have the option of a WordPress hosted website for $299/year.
Here were the options before the business level service was offered:
- Free – a basic blog hosted as yourusername.wordpress.com
- Pro – $99/year includes domain registry, HD videos with VideoPress, Custom Design services, no ads and 10GB of extra storage for images, audio and video.
- Enterprise – Starts at $500/per year was launched last December. Along with domain registry, hosting and design this level of service includes unlimited bandwidth, traffic, and storage, analytics from both Google and WordPress Stats, plugins that help improve SEO, customize the site, add social media tools or manage ads, and mobile ready responsive themes.
The new offering of WordPress Business meets the needs of businesses between the basic Pro user and the high end Enterprise users. Live support in the form of text chat during US business hours will be available. Users will have access to an unlimited number of premium themes. And for those who prefer to upload video or audio content directly to WordPress, the Business tier also includes unlimited storage.
