ClassicPress is easy to use once you familiarize yourself with its dashboard. If you have used WordPress before you’ll instantly feel at home. Installation, while not very difficult, installation can be a bit daunting… Meanwhile you just want to create content and get going. And I’m here to help!
What you’ll get
I’ll take care of the technical stuff for you. This includes installing the latest version of ClassicPress and the options included in your package.
You don’t have to deal with your hosting settings and setup at all if you don’t want to.
Next to that I can install my popular AdRotate Banner Manager plugin so you can get some advertisements going. This can be adverts from Google Adsense, Amazon Associates or any kind of advert you want.
Which Package is right for you
If you like WordPress, but don’t want WordPress… You should get ClassicPress and start your website with the best alternative.
Also which package to get is something you have to consider and is a little bit dependent on your experience level and what you want to do.
If you want a mostly stock ClassicPress setup, obviously pick the Basic package. From there you can install plugins and themes yourself from the dashboard.
However, if you’re looking to get a basic website with a few plugins, a theme and all the essentials set up, the Standard package will suit you just fine.
And if you’re looking to start your own online store, the E-Commerce package is great. Get a running start with Classic Commerce and start without having to worry about the initial setup.
Of-course you still need to add your own specific preferences and identity to the site. But once you’ve familiarized yourself with the dashboard and options that’s a piece of cake.
ClassicPress and ClassicCommerce
ClassicPress is created from a older version of WordPress, version 4.9 to be specific. This is the last version that before they added the dreaded block editor. Blocks are replacing themes and are supposed to make designing a website easier. But for many people it only slows down their website and makes editing pages and posts a chore. Not so with ClassicPress, which handles like a word processor and feels nimble and fast doing so.
Most plugins and themes from WordPress are compatible and can be used in ClassicPress without any issues. And that’s really great. For example, this website is also made with ClassicPress and almost exclusively uses WordPress plugins and a WordPress theme.
Likewise, ClassicCommerce is an E-Commerce (or webshop) plugin based on WooCommerce. In many ways the idea is the same as with ClassicPress it’s compatible with most WooCommerce plugins and themes. Also on this website I use Classic Commerce for all sales and money related actions and I think it’s a great alternative for WooCommerce if you like a speedy and efficient website without the bloated features WooCommerce added over the years.

Do I need a domain name?
Yes. You can get domain names in many places. I know a good business where you can buy most extensions cheap and reliable with privacy protection. They also sell SSL/HTTPS certificates if you need it.
What kind of Hosting do I need?
Your hosting must be compatible with WordPress/ClassicPress, have access to (s)FTP and be allowed to have a MySQL database. If you don’t know which hosting you need, I can recommend a few good and CHEAP hosting companies which I use or have used myself.
When do we start?
As soon as I have all the required information and you have your hosting and domain sorted. I do expect to finish your order within a week from ordering though. Depending on how prepared you are this can go very fast.
Once done do you provide help and support?
Yes, all services I provide come with limited support. I have a support forum which you can join where you can ask all your questions related to ClassicPress or anything related to it.
What is AdRotate Banner Manager?
AdRotate Banner Manager is my popular advertising plugin. With AdRotate you can easily place adverts and banners on your website. This can be any advert you like. Popular networks are Google Adsense or Media.net among many many others, or create your own.
