US Server Net grew out of a small, local web design and hosting service that began in 1997. Our Managed WordPress Hosting is designed specifically for small business owners, busy professionals, home-based and virtual businesses, groups, and individuals who need an easy way to manage web publishing. By using WordPress as a Content Management System, our clients learn to organize their online information using pages and posts, pictures, audio and video clips.
In 2011 we developed Site Insurance Management Services (SIMS), a website bundle that brought peace of mind to the clients who took advantage of this hosting option. At the beginning of 2012, SIMS was folded into our WP Server bundle and ServerNet.us was born. Today we are growing rapidly, as more individuals, groups, small businesses and organizations learn how easy it is to get a WordPress site up and running, without having to worry about the technology and software management details that we provide as part of every site subscription.
