User Group Websites
Websites designed for Apple and Mac User Groups
We build it. We host it. You Own It.
Your User Group. Your Website.
We Build It
By using WordPress multisite, we can easily create multiple sites with one installation of WordPress. This enabled us to build a community site and now we can clone it for you and your members.
We Host It
Another advantage of WordPress multisite is the ability to use one hosting account for multiple sites. We are also using Kinsta’s world-class hosting to keep your site secure and safe.
You Own It
It’s your domain, you own it. With just a simple DNS entry, we can begin hosting your member site. We will also be glad to export the membership site for you at anytime, if you want to host it yourself.
Designed to be simple to use for everyone

Simple Design. Responsive Design.
We decided to go to the basics with the design. Every page, every post is designed to be easy to read with minimal distractions. Your site will also be responsive, making it easy to read and navigate on any device.
Our goal is to help you help your members
Why are we doing this?
I have been helping people with their Apple devices for over a couple decades. This has been through various publishing companies to being an Apple Genius to developing my own tutorials. I’ve also been a guest speaker for numerous user groups through the years. I’ve always found value in these users groups and I’ve been happy to contribute to them in any way I can. As I’ve gotten better at building and maintaining my own membership website, I decided to expand that and see if I could help User Groups with theirs. So the idea was born. My wife and I will build, host, and help support your User Group Website to help you grow value in your membership.
