When should you upgrade to a self-hosted WordPress site?

Atmosphere recently announced an exciting new service — Atmosphere Guided Transfers For WordPress & Blogger. This is the perfect affordable service for anyone that has outgrown their free WordPress.com or Blogger blogs and wants to utilize the functionality of a full self-hosted website.

How will you know if this is something you need? Ask yourself:

  • Do you need more customizable visuals?
  • Do you wish you had more control over fonts, layouts, and other design elements?
  • Do you want more visual options than the free themes at WordPress.com/Blogger?
  • Do you want to expand your blog into a fully functioning website?
  • Do you want more flexible features, such as chat, forums, SEO, and more multimedia options?
  • Do you want to start using ecommerce?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it’s something to consider. We understand that making the leap from a free service to one that requires a little investment can be scary. If you’re not sure whether or not this is right for you, then review our Guided Transfer service and fire off any questions you might have — we’re here to help!
