Frequently Asked Questions

Features

Either of the paid plans allow you to a) have multiple books under one account and b) have an author page that connects your books, like mine: https://www.hostingauthors.com/authors/bobennett. You can, technically, create a free account for each book as well. You won’t have the sites connected, however, and you will need more than one e-mail address for each account (meaning you will have to log in and log out when updating different books).

General Questions

There is no catch. We use a "freemium" business model based on the understanding that a certain percentage of free users will see the value in upgrading and have the means to do so. The free users who never upgrade will share their site with others, promoting us at the same time. It is a truly a win-win arrangement!
YES. If you manage to fill out our registration form, figure out how confirm your e-mail address, and log in, you have all the skills necessary to create your book website.
There are many services that can do this for you, including our services that are currently being developed. If you need something done graphically, use the contact form and let us know. We can get back to you with the details.

Getting Started

We use a checklist-based process, which means we provide you with an interactive checklist that guides you through the creation of your website, step by step. There are two ways to access this checklist. First, click the progress bar over the author portal menu when you logged in and in the author portal:

You will see the checklist window appear. Second, click the checklist button on the welcome screen when you login:

 


Technical

You can forward any domain to your author or book website. Virtually all domain registrars have easy-to-use domain forwarding services. Once you know your book/author URL, you can forward your domain. However, the domain will run securely (https) as hostingauthors.com.
Then our Prolific Author is the best package for you. As the account owner, you can create up to 25 book website that you manage. This package still only allows for one author website, however. We are considering a reseller/white label solution. If you are interested in something more that what we offer, contact us and let us know your needed. We will see what we can do!

This is (not) Your Last Chance to Register!

Perhaps you are the cautious type who wants to discuss this free registration with your spouse, consult your attorney, meditate on it, and conduct personal interviews of authors who use this service. Go for it. When you are done, we'll still be here. But if you are the kind of author who likes to live on the edge, register now!
