SeekaHost.app pricing plans
This is an obvious question by now, isn’t it?
How much does all of this cost?
Well, the domain costs differ based on the extension you choose. It can be as low as $3.00/year and as high as $12.00/year for .com domains. Which I’d say is still cheap because it’s for the “year”.
As for hosting plans, these primarily depend on the server-type you go with.
- Private Blog (PBN) servers : 1 blog cost $1.35/month. Decreases if you choose a package with higher number of blogs.
- A-class IPs: 1 blog costs $4.00/month.
- WordPress Hosting: 1 blog costs $1.49/month. Decreases if you choose more than 1-blog packages.
Frequently Asked Questions
I’m sure you’ve set your WordPress site by now. However, you may still have a few questions, let me try and answer them?

Yes, you get free SSL certificates with SeekaHost.app. Once you’ve changed your nameservers, you can install SSL certificates on your blog within seconds. Literally!
Simply go to your WordPress site’s control panel, then click on the “SSL” button and activate your SSL certificate.
