Why host with us


Designing and building websites for twenty plus years has taught us a thing or two about proper website hosting, especially for platforms like Craft CMS, ExpressionEngine, and WordPress. 

Faster development

If we build and host your site, we can be a lot more confident about the end result which will save time and resources when it comes time to launch or make updates.

One team to lean on

It's not particularly enjoyable to be the person going between your web developer and your hosting company. While there are ways around this, having us host your site means you just need to reach out to one team.

What we offer

Nightly backups

We backup your account every night to a remote server. That includes your site files and databases. That allows us to get your website restored quickly and efficiently should disaster strike.

Free migration

Moving from another host to Block 81? Not a problem. We’ll help with as much or as little of the migration process as you need at no cost to you.

Free SSL certificate

Every hosting account comes with a free SSL certificate. Got an e-commerce site that needs a bit more from your SSL? We can install any commercially available SSL to keep your store secure.

Transactional email delivery

Powered by Postmark, your hosting account includes email delivery for those emails you and your users need such as form submissions, password reset notifications, or order receipts.
