A host of hosting providers are offering a new offering, hosted on the World Wide Web, that makes it possible for businesses to set up their own blog.
The idea is to help businesses run their sites better and more efficiently by letting them host the content themselves, rather than having the hosting company host it.
“What I am trying to say is, if you want to be able to host all your content on your own site, then there are a bunch of things you can do,” said Mark Sullivan, a senior vice president at HostaFrances.
The service is called HostaFranco.
It lets businesses create an online presence on their own, without having to hire a company to handle the hosting, he said.
It costs $39 a month.
The website offers a host of options for hosting content.
The hosting company, HostaFrisco, will pay you a fee of $0.15 a word, and you can pay a monthly fee for access to the service or a per-page payment for the content you host.
Sullivan said his company also provides free hosting for other services like a WordPress hosting company.
“The goal is to make it as easy as possible for small businesses to be successful with their content,” he said in an interview.
He said that hosting costs typically range from $3 to $6 a month for a large website.
“It’s all about being able to manage your content, so it’s easy to get started,” he added.
A Hosta Frances spokesperson said the company has been hosting more than 2,000 businesses and has a team of 50 staff members.
“We have a lot of experience hosting companies that are small, but we’re seeing a lot more small businesses that are building websites,” he told The Globe and Mail.
Sullivan also noted that he has seen “some great growth” in the number of businesses using Hosta Franco.
He did not give a figure for the number who have signed up for the service.
He also said the service is “coming very, very quickly.”
Sullivan said he is not alone in wanting to offer a more open, transparent platform to hosting businesses.
“There are a lot people out there that are just going to build their websites from scratch and they are not going to have the same kind of support or support that we do,” he explained.
“This is really the future of hosting.”
Sullivan did not say how many companies have signed on.
A spokesperson for Hosta Frances said it was “coming extremely quickly,” and that it was also “working on more options” for businesses who want to set their own hosting, including “multi-platform platforms” such as WordPress and Github.
But Sullivan also pointed out that the service “is available for the majority of hosts.”
The company said it had been working with “large, well-known companies” to make Hosta Francis a reality.
The company does not charge a monthly subscription fee.
But if you’re not able to pay, there is a fee-free plan that costs $5 a month and offers the same services as the service at $39 per word.
Sullivan noted that Hosta Français can be accessed on multiple devices.
“You can have it in your desktop, you can have the website in your browser,” he pointed out.
“I mean, it’s going to be really powerful for a lot smaller businesses.”
