Rapid Blog by

Hello, I am introducing a new service from my favorite domain registrar to you - Rapid Blog.
First of all, this is not a paid post and there are no affiliate links, although I sure would like to be paid by if I managed to refer a few customers to them. is my favorite domain registrar, there are many reasons for that. I am subscribed to their newsletter. I received a newsletter a few days back and was informed about a new service called Rapid Blog. Apparently this service includes a fully configured (setup) WordPress blog and a domain name at an affordable price. In other words, you are buying blog hosting from them and there is nothing to worry about, no cPanel, no WHM, no changing nameservers, no installing add-on domains, etc. You just worry about your blog layout and content while let the experts at handle the technical stuffs.

Rapid Blog at a glance
One of the attractive features of this service is its budget blog hosting price. Its monthly plan costs $3.99/month while the annual plan would only cost $1.99/month.

What do I think about Rapid Blog?
Coming from, I have no doubt that their service will be reliable. This service is most suitable for internet users and companies that wish to try out blogging without spending too much while they take their first blogging steps. is not the first to offer WordPress hosting service, I am sure the demand for such services will only increase in the coming years as blogging become more and more popular.

Regarding the price, its $3.99/month plan is not the cheapest in the industry, at that price I could easily get an unlimited domains hosting with 50GB monthly bandwidth, not just a single WordPress installation. However, the annual $1.99/month plan is about the lowest you could get from any of the major reputable companies. I highly recommend to pick up this package, it will only cost about $25/year.

Lastly, here are some of my concerns. This service will probably not include cPanel, what about FTP accounts, will that be supported and allowed? Is there a possibility that users would be able to use scripts other than WordPress, upon request or is this restricted to WordPress only? Also, the permissible bandwidth and diskspace for this service is vague as defined in its FAQ, hence bloggers with some decent traffic will probably avoid this service.

What do you think? Would you rather go for regular web hosting or Rapid Blog? Why?
