The SEOT Hosting Unfair Advantage

You know the web hosting company your Fiverr “WordPress expert” said would be okay? lol

We’re in a category of one. No one else offers this.

DEDICATED MANAGED WORDPRESS HOSTING
We understand geeky words so you don’t have to

You know how other web hosting companies wow you with geeky technobabble?

We offer them too.

(Actually, better in some cases. Some places charge extra for these features)

  • One-Click Staging, Self-Healing Architecture, SFTP/SSH, phpMyAdmin, WP-CLI, No Read/Write IOP File Limits…
  • Free SSL Certificates, Dedicated IP, Nightly Backups, Static Server Cache (FastCGI), Object Cache, IPv6, Web Application Firewall (WAF)…
  • Optimized for WordPress, Dedicated and optimized resources, built on a powerful LEMP stack, 45-Point Content Delivery Network (CDN)…
Dedicated Server resources
Speed up your TPT blog

We’ve partnered with WPMU DEV’s Managed WordPress Hosting. You get droplet technology which provides dedicated computer resources for your TPT Blog. (This means fast.)

(The green circles are separate droplets with dedicated RAM and CPU power based on your hosting plan.)

Those cheap plans with that low-budget web hosting company are cheap for a reason: they use shared hosting.

(The red circles mean your TPT blog shares resources with a bunch of other websites on the server. The speed of your TPT blog depends on how many people are crammed in that server.)

SIMPLE GRAPHS AND TABLES
Quickly see where your traffic come from

Google Analytics is free and awesome. But it can also be complicated to set up. Plus, not everyone can understand where to look in Google Analytics.

So, we provide the premium version of Monster Insights. You can look at simple graphs and tables from your Google Analytics data directly in your WordPress dashboard.

No more trying to figure out what to do in Google Analytics. You only need your TPT blog WordPress dashboard!

Learn more about Monster Insights
Optimize what’s already working
Rank even better for keywords people already use to find you on Google

We partnered with All In One SEO Plugin to offer you access to the Elite version (agency-only) plugin.

Now, you can see Google Search Console data directly in your TPT blog. This means knowing EXACTLY which keywords people searched on Google to get to your page.

Oh, you now the SEO checklist that comes with the FREE All In One SEO plugin? The Elite version matches your TruSEO Score with your Google Search Console data so you know which pages to prioritize

Easy to use design library
Create stunning websites with ease, no code required

WordPress has click-and-drag blocks called “Gutenberg Blocks”. We use the FREE Kadence Blocks plugin on all of our sites to add extra features.

I always use their “Row Layout” block it comes with a design library. The FREE version has lots of good options.

You can add a quick “Table of Contents” block at the top of your post with quick links. (Clicking a link means engagement, which is good!)

Depending on the client, I use the “testimonials” block, “tabs”, or “icon list” blocks as well.

The best part is there’s no bloat to slow down your TPT blog. (Kadence Blocks only loads CSS and Javascript when you need it on a specific page.)

Psst. If you’re on one of our maintenance plans where we do everything for you, we can give you Kadence Blocks Pro.

SECURITY and transparency
Do you really know what that “WordPress Expert” did on your TPT blog?

Sometimes mistakes happen.

And, sometimes bad things happen to good people.

Either way, we use an Activity Log plugin to keep track of changes made on our client websites.

This way, if things go wrong, we can help troubleshoot problems.

This offer is for serious TPT sellers only.

Selling on TPT is not a get-rich-quick scheme.

Let’s be honest. This won’t be easy. Some of us won’t succeed because we’ll give up along the way.

But, for those of us who stay focused and stick with the process, it will be worth it.

Who should start a WordPress website for their TPT store?

You want to future-proof your TPT business and build on your own land
You are a TPT hamster (or higher) and you have a TPT product that is a tree (or higher)
You are willing to do keyword research and write ongoing content on your TPT website
Selling on TPT is a marathon, not a sprint. Are you in?

How does SEOT HOSTING compare with BlueHost, SiteGround or other WordPress web hosting companies?

SEOT Hosting plans (basic and higher) provide dedicated server resources for your TPT blog or TPT website.

The cheapest plans you’re looking at on Blue Host and Siteground do not.

Those cheap plans on Blue Host and Siteground are “Shared Hosting Plans.”

Shared hosting is when you have a computer server with a certain amount of resources (like RAM.) You then set up a bunch of websites on this server.

TPT sellers who are new to setting up a WordPress website don’t realize why this is a problem.

Basically, your TPT blog or website is on a shared server with a hundred other websites. Sometimes your website will be fast. Other times it will be slow. Why? Because you’re sharing the server resources with other websites on the server.

If you run a website that requires a lot of resources and computing power (i.e. having an entire class of students log in at the same time, or running an e-commerce site like Woo Commerce,) Blue Host and other companies will throttle your site.

This means your website will load incredibly slow because it needs more resources than the shared hosting server can provide.

If you’re not sure how much server power your shared hosting plan has, try asking your WordPress web hosting company how much RAM is available on the server, how much RAM is dedicated for each site, how many websites are on the server, how many PHP workers are on the server, and if they will throttle your website if your TPT website needs too many resources (i.e. you’re running heavy e-commerce or membership WordPress plugins.)

SEOT Hosting has partnered up with WPMU DEV hosting.

WPMU DEV hosting provides us with the infrastructure to give teachers sites with dedicated server resources – this is done by virtually carving up a physical computer server into separate compartments.

Each SEOT Hosting plan is on a separate virtual hosting server which means you’re guaranteed access to a certain number of cores, RAM, and PHP workers.

Your SEOT HOSTING website is never throttled – whatever resources are available on your virtual hosting environment is what your TPT blog or website has available.

If you need more computing power, then you need to increase the number of RAM / other resources allocated to your TPT website. You can do this by upgrading your SEOT Hosting plan.

Being on a shared web host isn’t always bad. But it’s unpredictable when you have noisy neighbors.

Imagine you have a computer and you’re using Microsoft Word. The program probably works fine!

Now, open up Excel, PowerPoint, 20 tabs on Google Chrome, Adobe PDF reader, while downloading a bunch of movies from Netflix. How fast does Microsoft Word run now?

The answer is, it depends on how good your computer is (processor, amount of RAM, etc) and how many programs you open up.

Shared web hosting business model works by cramming in a bunch of websites onto a single server.

Each individual website can run fine… but as different websites use more or less resources, your website might slow down (or not load) depending on what the neighbouring websites are doing.

Stay tuned.

Both SEOT Hosting and Bluehost offer Managed WordPress Hosting.

Managed WordPress Hosting means all you have to worry about is using WordPress. You don’t have to worry about installing WordPress or managing the underlying server software on the computer.

SEOT Hosting doesn’t offer any shared hosting plans. (We offer plans with dedicated server resources.)

In order to get dedicated resources with Bluehost, you’re looking at a Virtual Private Server. (So when you contact Bluehost support and ask to upgrade to a more powerful server, a VPS will be one suggestion.)

  • The Bluehost Standard VPS plan with 2 cores and 2 GB RAM is equivalent to the SEOT Hosting – e-commerce / membership plan which has 2 cores and 2 GB RAM. (2 GB of RAM is 4 power cubes)
  • Please note that the Bluehost VPS plan is not a Managed WordPress Hosting plan. So you will have to configure the server yourself, install WordPress and hire a system developer to make sure the VPS server is updated, secure and optimized.

How does the LIFETIME free domain name work?

Yes, you get a free .com domain name as long as you pay for an annual plan on SEOT Hosting.

For clarity, we will cover the $12 USD fee it costs us to register your domain name, but you don’t have to pay anything extra because it’s included in our annual fee for WordPress hosting (and we just want to get you started!)

Domain names are an annual recurring fee. You have to pay a domain name registrar (like SEOT Hosting) once a year to own (technically “rent”) that domain.

Most of our web hosting competitors offer a “free domain”… for the first year. Then, you have to pay the annual fee (and any extra charges they add like WHOIS Domain Privacy)

Right now, to help new TEACHERpreneurs, we’re offering founding members a “lifetime free domain.” This means, as long as you have an annual plan with us and your domain name is registered by us, we’ll cover your domain registration fees.

If you cancel your annual webhosting plan, then you will have to renew your domain name at the regular price. (You can also transfer your domain name to another domain name registrar.)

No problem. You can continue to pay to keep your domain where it is! Just change your DNS so it points to your WordPress site on our servers.

Alternatively, you can transfer your domain so it’s registered by SEOT Hosting. In that case, we cover the annual cost of the domain name registration. (And we’ll do the technical DNS setup so that your domain name points to your WordPress site!)

Nope. If you already have a domain name, you don’t need to get another one.

(You can if you want to, but you need a STANDARD plan (or higher) to be able to use multiple domains on your multisite WordPress installation.)

FYI: The annual plan costs you the same whether or not you use the free .com domain name for your TPT Business Website.

We just want to help TEACHERpreneurs get started (so if you don’t have to worry about buying a domain name, it’s one less thing you have to figure out.)

A STARTER and BASIC plan can only have one domain. (Single Site WordPress Installation)

A STANDARD plan and higher can have as many as you want. (Multi-Site WordPress Installation)
