HIGH PERFORMANCE HOSTINGOur operations team works continuously to improve the speed and performance of our web servers so that your website is up and running at top speed 24/7/365. Whether your website receives 100 or 100,000 visitors per month (or anywhere in between), we can help you.
REGULAR UPDATESWordPress is constantly under development, offering new and improved functionality every year. We handle your WordPress upgrades (core, plugin, and theme upgrades) behind the scenes so that you can stay focused on updating your church website.
ON DEMAND SUPPORTSOur support team is available Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm via the Five More Talents Helpdesk. As a team, we have over 12 years experience supporting church websites running on WordPress.
WEBSITE TRAFFIC REPORTSEvaluating the results and reach of your online presence is crucial for the ongoing effectiveness of your church website. We make this easy for you by providing you with detailed reports via Google Analytics.
EMAIL ACCOUNTSMake it easy for people in your church and your community to contact you by using an email address @yourdomainname.org. Your monthly plan with Five More Talents includes email accounts for church staff, officers, and lay leaders.
LOTS OF STORAGEWhether you are just getting started with your online sermon library, or already have several years worth of sermon audio files, there is plenty of room for your files.
PROACTIVE SECURITY & BACKUPSLike all other software in this age of networked computing, WordPress requires security monitoring and backups. Your managed WordPress hosting plan includes personalized attention to the precise security and backup needs of your church website. We do even do offsite backups so that even if your data center blows up, you are back up and running quickly.
MONTHLY WEB HEALTH REPORTSOnce a month, you will receive an email from our support team summarizing the most recent upgrades to your website.
DOMAIN NAME MANAGEMENTIf your website is your online “house,” and web hosting is the “land” where you build your house, then the domain name is your “address.” Whether you are registering a domain name for the first time, renewing your domain name, need to point it to new name servers, or need to manage your DNS zone files — we’ve got your back. Annual domain name registration and renewal is included in your $50/month package
24/7 LEARNING LIBRARYThis learning library will cover all aspects of content management on your website, ensuring that it is always easy for you to update your own text, photos, events, sermons, and so on. Coming soon.
WHAT IS WORDPRESS?
- A web content management system (web CMS). A web CMS is a computer program which allows you to create, edit, store, and deploy your content on your website. “Content” includes text, images, photos, audio, and video.
- Open-source software. Since 2003, WordPress has been developed in a public, collaborative manner by literally thousands of software developers around the world. This means WordPress offers unparalleled flexibility for church websites.
- Industry-standard. According to a Forbes magazine article in Sept 2012: “WordPress powers one of every 6 websites on the Internet, nearly 60 million in all, with 100,000 more popping up each day.”
- Easy to use. If you can use Microsoft Word, you can use WordPress. If you can use Facebook, you can use WordPress.
In short, WordPress puts you in the driver’s seat of your website, enabling you to harness the power of the Web.
