Its been a while I made a post, that’s because I was working on my next project – CMS Launcher. It’s a fairly straight forward but neat idea – host your own customizable WordPress website in 60 seconds. Yay! another WordPress hosting provider? Not quite, read on..
I have been in web hosting / cloud servers for last several years. I have realized that while many want to launch their website (yes, even in today’s app hungry world) but it still seems like a daunting task. More often than not, they tend to hire a developer.
In my view, at least launching a bare bone blog or website should be very simple job to do; sure customizations and content will build over time but the first step should be friction-less. This is where I am positioning CMS Launcher.
While the mission is far from complete, you will see many elements on the website which illustrate my point, like :
- Easy install of WordPress (or any other CMS) during signup process.
- 7 Days of free web hosting trial.
- No credit card for trial.
- Free Sub-domain (so you don’t have to buy a domain just for testing).
- Easy upgrades to any plans.
- Easy to use client area interface.
- Affordable plans with no outrageous unlimited disk space etc claims.
- WordPress optimized configuration.
We have miles to go but our objective is clear – make WordPress hosting easy for everyone.
Let me prove that to you, just give me, ummm, 60 secs. Will ya?
WordPress Hosting Plans
Here you can see the various plans we have. Choose “Start Free Trial” button.
Domain Configuration Page
You will be taken straight to client area > domain configuration. Here you can either purchase a new domain, use your existing domain (and update the name servers) or get a free sub-domain from us. I am going to use the third option.
WordPress Hosting Configuration Page
You will be asked to choose a server location from US, UK or Singapore. I have chosen Singapore and then selected WordPress to install with username and password for WordPress dashboard login. See my point yet?
(You can ignore all the addons in the bottom of the page for now).
Billing & Payment Methods
This is the last page, where you will be asked to enter your billing details, set your account password (to login to the client area) and choose a payment method. Since this is a $0.00 order (due to being a trial order), just click on any of the option and hit “Complete Order”. For our Indian customers, we have option to pay in INR.
That’s it! Your website is up and running. Mind you – this is nothing like WordPress.com based blogs, this is a complete and untouched installation of WordPress.org based software which can be completely customized. You can install your plugins and themes.
You will receive a welcome email contain information on how to login to FTP, cPanel and other details.
