On-Demand Web Platforms

Powered by WordPress Multisite

In a self-service network, allow faculty, staff, or even students to log in and create a site in just a few clicks. 

The Original Multisite Experts

We’ve been hosting, managing, and scaling WordPress Multisite since the beginning of WordPress (2005!). Out of the box, we provide the plugins, themes, support, and ongoing maintenance required to meet all of your web needs.

Code Review & Management

Much more than just a hosting provider, we will manually review all of your plugins and themes for performance and security. We also handle the quality assurance and testing for updates and upgrades. We become part (or all!) of your development team.

 

Around-the-clock Support

In addition to ‘super administrator’ support, we can be your front-line help desk to assist faculty, staff, or students directly. We also provide detailed docs and training right inside the WordPress dashboard.

Built-in Tools

No more need to go plugin shopping or hunt down the best way to do something in WordPress. All sites we host come with our extensive plugin and feature set, including domain mapping, network management tools, dozens of plugins, and more. 

A Few ExAmple Sites We Host

No two implementations are the same. We host thousands of WordPress Multisite networks with millions of sites between them.

The Migration Process

The majority of the colleges and universities that we work with came to us as a migration from existing WordPress sites – usually either self-hosted “on-prem” or with another WordPress managed host.

We’ve successfully migrated everything from smaller and newer networks to those with hundreds of thousands of sites and years of legacy and out-dated code. Whatever it is, we can handle it.  

We start with a review of any existing plugins and themes and come up with a plan for anything custom or unique. We then do a complete test migration, configure single sign on authentication methods, and do any training required. 

Final migrations are typically scheduled over 48-72 hours and an your timeline. Actual downtime is usually no more than a few minutes.

FAQ’S

How is this better than just WordPress?

We include way better tools for moderation, content filtering, class management, network administration, and privacy baked right in. Plus, no headaches, no down time, and no upgrades to manage.

What about hosting, safety, and security?

Our server network is hosted in state-of-the-art data centers and we employ the latest technologies and monitoring resources available to keep everything running smoothly and out of harms way. Our cache and performance optimization tools in place keep everything fast too – so go viral, we can handle the traffic!

How is support provided?

We will work with you to meet your needs, including setting up web-based or in-person trainings, handling all end-user support directly, and much more.

What type of sites do you host?

WordPress and CampusPress have evolved tremendously from a traditional blogging service to a full featured web platform. We host networks with a focus on academic blogging, faculty sites, research labs, ePortfolios, and even main department, college, or university websites.

What if we already use WordPress?

Even better! We have migrated dozens of networks that started off self-hosting but needed to switch services as their platforms grew. With our focus on the security and scalability of your network, we’ll plan out a migration timeline and review your current network to ensure a smooth transition.

What single-sign-on options are available?

At no extra cost, we can authenticate using LDAP, Shibboleth (we’re a member of the InCommon Federation), CAS, and several other custom SSO solutions.

How can we use our own branding?

CampusPress is an entirely white label solution that can be customized to keep your look and meet your style guidelines. By adding custom themes, you can keep a consistent look and feel for all sites created too.

Can I learn more about the free trial?

We’ll set you up with a fully functional site that students and faculty can use just as you would had you purchased a license. Best of all, should you decide to sign-up, you’ll be able to keep everything going with no need to start over from scratch. No obligation or commitment.
