Most community owners are not technically minded or even interested in managing a traditional web hosting setup. We've seen so many of our clients gets frustrated by their regular webhosts because of a slow site, clueless support reps and never-ending performance issues that can only be resolved by buying that monthly hosting upgrade.
We've also seen many great community ideas never take off because of their owners getting lost during the way. Our thriving community of site owners and developers all share a common goal: Building Better Communities with WordPress. We’re here to make your community a success and that goes far beyond just hosting.
Of course, the WeFoster Platform is the only managed solution for WordPress communities, and we’re confident we’re the perfect fit for anyone who wants to have a successful online community on a high performant, secure and managed platform.
We don't set hard limits on disk space, bandwidth or visitor usage, because our platform is flexible enough to grow and adapt to your specific needs. We simply want you to focus on building your community and in the vast majority of all cases you'll never have to worry about these things.
We apply a virtual bandwidth limit on all our plans. You can see the usage stats at any point via your dashboard. If you continuously go over month after month then we'll reach out and ask you to upgrade your plan or purchase a montly bandwidth upgrade!
If your community relies heavily on offering large (members-only) downloads like videos, music or other media files, our tech team will advise you how to store these files easily via cloud storage technology like Amazon S3 or on our platform via a pay-what-you-use space add-on.
If you already know WordPress you'll be right at home and you can benefit from our platform specific features built right into the WordPress administration area you know best!
As a community site owner we advise you to take security seriously. Strong passwords, two-factor verification, and enforcing the same rules for your fellow community admins is always a good idea.
In case the worst happens you should be happy to know we make daily backups of your entire community and we can revert your site easily to two weeks back in time.
This means we help you resolve community breaking issues and other problems that might occur on your specific community setup.
That being said for general support and community building advice you can still access the WeFoster community where fellow site owners and developers help out each other on a voluntary basis. Our support team is also using our community extensively and will drop in often to help other build better communities!
If your community requires general support and ongoing maintenance and development services please get in touch via our contact form!
That being said there are some plugins and themes that we know are causing performance or security issues. If you are using one of these plugins we'll gladly help you replace them with better alternatives!
On our City & Metropolis plans our team is also available via priority email support and live chat to help you with general plugin and theme support and community building advice.
