All websites need hosting for their site files. Artbiz provides Artist Website Hosting on a Virtually Partitioned Server (VPS), which means we don’t share our resources with anyone other than other Artbiz clients. Our hosting has the best technical support that I have ever had, so you can rest assured that Artbiz is backed by people in the know.
The problem for artists is that standard host providers do not automatically upgrade third party programs like WordPress; you have to know how to do this yourself.
Not so with Artbiz Hosting: By hosting your site with Artbiz, your site will be automatically upgraded when new program releases become available. This includes:
- Core Updates are major application updates to WordPress. Often these upgrades are security related and are important to maintain. Artbiz ensures that the core updates are compatible with each and every one of the plugins. If a plugin needs to be replaced we will do that and provide you with the details.
- Plugin Updates are things like your Contact form, SEO (important for your sites rankings in Google etc), Gallery etc. From time to time the developers of these plugins provide updates that increase functionality, fix bugs and enhance security. While these appear to be simple updates Artbiz still tests them to ensure they still do what they say they will.
- Email Support for the life of your hosting with full access to the WordPress for Artists Tutorial site and our private Facebook Group.
Your WordPress Website Hosting is $155.00 USD + tax (if applicable), paid annually. You can choose to host your site with Artbiz and we will keep your WordPress installation current. Please note that this is installation of WordPress only and does not include having your site set up Artbiz Style.
