A question, really, more than a post. Is anyone here hosting their blog somewhere else? Somewhere cheaper than $180 that WordPress.com seems to be introducing soon as their cheapest add-free version?
Ideally, somewhere with no block editors?
WordPress.org suggests some hosting options, I wonder, how easy they are for amateurs, and do their migrations tools work…
There are some guides online, but perhaps someone can suggest a tried and trusted one 🙂
I assume WordPress.com users would still be able to comment and get notifications about a WordPress-not-com blog? That’s really the crucial thing, as it’s all about the community.
We still have time, as we renewed our plan in January, so we have 2022 covered, but I want to explore other options in advance. $180 is a bit much, but I also dislike this company more and more, the way they introduce these changes, I feel mistreated as a customer. Read the Bookstooge’s post, they company doesn’t even know the details of some of the new rules (including a 10,000 cap on monthly visits…).
