What’s the difference between Cloud WordPress and Web Hosting?
BoldGrid Cloud WordPress is a powerful platform for you to create, test, and learn WordPress and BoldGrid, but there are some key differences between your Cloud WordPress websites and the WordPress websites you can create on your WordPress web host.
Is Cloud WordPress Free Web Hosting?
Your first Cloud WordPress website is completely free. Simply sign up for BoldGrid Central and you can start creating immediately. You can use this platform to learn how to use WordPress, make a clone of your site so that you can test updates, test new themes and plugins, among many other uses.
You can also purchase additional Cloud WordPress installations for an extremely low annual cost, or receive 15 complimentary installations with your purchase of BoldGrid Premium.
Free Features of Cloud WordPress
With your free Cloud WordPress website, you can:
- Use one permanent WordPress installation.
- Create Snaps to re-install WordPress with any Theme and Plugins.
- Transfer your WordPress installation to any web host.
- Create, recreate, and destroy your installation at any time.
- Add additional WordPress installations a la carte, for as low as $20 annually.
Premium Features of Cloud WordPress
With your BoldGrid Premium license, you also get:
- Up to fifteen (15) permanent WordPress installations.
- Advanced tools including a Database Manager and File Manager.
- Transfer Cloud WordPress backups to Google Drive and Amazon S3
- Premium design blocks for the Post and Page Builder
Web Hosting Features
BoldGrid Cloud WordPress does not include features you would typically expect from a web host, which is why it’s available at such a low cost. The following web hosting features are not included in Cloud WordPress.
- Custom Domain or DNS records. Your Cloud WordPress installation will be installed on the domain https://demo2.cloudwp.dev
- Email. Cloud WordPress is not able to send email without the use of an SMTP account and a WordPress SMTP integration plugin.

If you need more than free web hosting, we recommend the BoldGrid official WordPress web hosting partners.
