This Is Tap advertises itself as providing managed WordPress hosting without the hassle.

You can run a subdomain for free. A subdomain means you choose a name (let’s say you choose ‘nimble’) and assuming no one else has chosen that name, then your site will be nimble.thisistap.com

For $5.00/month you can use a custom domain and SFTP access.

I set up a free subdomain site and ran it through GTMetrix and Google PageSpeed Insights and it’s running pretty fast.

Really, there is no reason not to set up at least a free sub-domain site there.

Think of this: You can run advertisements – something you generally cannot do in WordPress.com
