Page.ly is a WordPress hosting service which describes itself as simply the fastest & easiest way to set-up a WordPress website. Some of its highlight features include automatic core updates and automatic nightly backups in a secure web hosting environment.
To get an idea of how simple it is to set up a WordPress site, take a look at the following “2 minute set up” video:
Joshua and Sally Strebel, the people behind the Page.ly service, have offered a giveaway of a free site for life for one lucky Theme Lab reader.
It’s really simple to sign up, just a simple comment + retweet. Read on for details.
First, I want to go over some other features included in every Page.ly plan.
- Managed WordPress Hosting – As mentioned above, automatic core upgrades and nightly backups are taken care of for you.
- Premium WordPress Themes – Page.ly has partnered with commercial theme vendors like WooThemes and StudioPress to provide easy set up of their themes for an additional fee.
- 5 Gigabytes of Storage – Which is plenty of space, 20 email boxes, unlimited email forwards, and 8-Core Xeon Servers

On Friday, May 21, 2010 at 12:00 PM EST this content will be closed to new entries, and I’ll pick one winner at random.
You’ll be contacted through the e-mail address you leave in your comment, so please leave a valid email address, otherwise I’ll have to bother you on Twitter.
With all the hacks going around infecting WordPress sites with malware on certain hosts, it is very important you choose a host that takes security seriously. With Page.ly signing a deal with Firehost to maintain a secure server infrastructure, I’d say they do take security seriously.
So let’s start seeing those tweets + comments. Best of luck in the contest!
Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
