Experiment with contemporary, customisable themes

themesNeighborhosting offers over ninety themes showcasing the very best in design. They’re slick, fully accessible, entirely standards based and we’re adding to them all the time. What’s more, bloggers can customise every sidebar using the Widget system, insert their own headers into many themes (through our simple in built cropping system) and even select the look and feel for those with alternative CSS displays.

Simply embed videos, podcasts, images and a whole lot more

These are not just blogs you know…

wordpressNeighborhosting is built on WordPress technology and that means you get a lot more than just a blog. As well as being able to post, your users can also create static pages (great for eportfolios!) manage comments in incredible detail, set static front pages, password protect individual posts and create powerful muti-tiered and complex websites… without ever needing to know one iota of html.
