PRICING

Monthly Plan: $68/month
(includes WordKeeper's Basic hosting plan)

Annual Plan: $748/year
(includes one month free plus WordKeeper's Basic hosting plan)

Hosting with WordKeeper comes with a plethora of benefits such as fast load times, a free SSL certificate and superb support. However, hosting with WordKeeper is not required to enjoy the benefits of the GMP.

GMP pricing remains the same if you opt out of utilizing WordKeeper's web hosting. If you opt in to WordKeeper's web hosting, their Basic plan is included at no additional fee.  Ecommerce sites, sites with more than 25,000 monthly visits or sites needing more than 1GB of storage will require a higher tier of hosting with WordKeeper. We will add the additional hosting fee to the base GMP fee when preparing your contract and invoice. For example, if your site requires WordKeeper's Plus plan ($50/month), your monthly GMP fee will be $88. See WordKeeper's pricing here.
