    Hello everyone me and some friends developed a Managed WP network where users can register for free and get a subdomain type of URL ( yoursite .domain .org), we provide 1GB of free space for uploads and access to lots of themes and plugins that are only available under a paywall ( we own dev licenses for them) plus some of the most used from the WordPress repositories.

    Our hosting is using a very high end stack made of Nginx + HHVM with php-fpm fallback + batcache and some other tweaks for performance, stability and security. The setup is designed to offer 100% uptime and we are also working on adding ssl for everyone, even the free plans.

    Every single site is maintaince free, this means that you as our user don't have to worry about keeping themes, plugins and WordPress updated at the latest version. The only thing that you need to do is build an awesome website ( put content, think of graphics, articles etc)

    We are planning in opening this very very soon but wanted to know what might users think about it here on bhw.

    Thanks in advance.

    Would be great thu there is already lot of free to use platforms out there already . If your way to monitize it is only via payed themes I'm not sure that there will be successful since there is also plenty of shared hosts for less than a dollar ... But all new platforms are always welcome :)

    Good luck !

    Yes i know about all the free platforms out there, tested lots of them before doing this and was not really happy with them. The 1$ ones are most of the times cPanel hosting on shared servers where users need to setup WordPress, install themes and plugins, configure security via plugins, configure cache, take care of updates and lots of other things that our platform do in automatic.

    Our platform take care of all that plus offer ticket based support for all accounts free and upgraded. To add even more value we have also added priority support via email.

    I think this is great idea and the best thing is that you will be looking after their wordpress, plugin and theme version, as most of the shared hosting provider suspend their user sites because of they are using out dated versions.

    Could work, there's a huge rush of people going to wordpress hosting because they think its better than regular hosting. When its not.
