Unlike an other service out there, Cloud WordPress allows you to launch a development website with just a few clicks. While we don’t provide hosting services, Cloud WordPress allows you to get started with designing and developing your website. Whenever you’re ready to officially launch your website, it’s a super simple process to move your website over to your web hosting provider for launching.

Getting Started on WordPress Cloud

Creating a Cloud WordPress site only takes a few seconds and it can be used for staging, testing, prototyping, and more. You can use BoldGrid Central to easily create Cloud WordPress instances with or without BoldGrid. Here’s how:
