How much are you going to be charging?
It's a good question, and one we haven't finalized yet...but you can expect this to start at $1,000 USD per month.
That sounds really expensive!
That's the absolute minimum you can expect for this level of custom setup, support, expertise and management. Think about how much you would have to pay developers, hosts and managers to get the same...

That sounds really cheap!
Thank you, and yes it is! But we've developed the systems and processes that allow us to manage this setup for 1000s of CampusPress clients. So you're getting the benefits of a decade of experience. And we'll be offering a free trial to everyone too, so you can checkout the experience without a $15k set up fee.
Who is this service for?
Companies, non-profits, WordPress agencies, and government organizations of all types and sizes that want enterprise level hosting and services. We offer a unique out-of-the-box solution where we handle all the heavy lifting of hosting, security, backups, support, and upgrades, so you can focus purely on content.
Is it for Multisite only? Can you host just one site?
We are the original WordPress Multisite experts and Multisite is all we host. That being said, you can always have just one site on a Multisite network. If you are curious, get in touch and we can discuss the possibility.
Can we use our own plugins and themes?
Absolutely! That's a core aspect WPMU Hosting. We'll provide you with Git access and any needed training to submit and, if you choose, commit code to your site. Part of our service is a manual code review we do on all plugins and themes to ensure security and reliability.
What about backups, infrastructure and security?
Grow big or go viral, we can handle it. Built on Amazon Web Services and fined tuned specifically for WordPress Multisite. As we're using the same fundamental infrastructure as CampusPress, you can read all about that in the CampusPress hosting and security guide.
This covers other aspects of the service that we can provide, including file storage policies, customer segregation, Cloudflare, traffic spikes, SLAs and the like.
When will this be ready?
Well, technically it's pretty much ready already...in fact, if you are an educational organisation or school of any sort, just go and talk to CampusPress now.
Otherwise we should be able to get you started on the beta very shortly indeed and hope to have the full offering open to the public in early 2017.
