For as long as I can remember, WordPress has been synonymous with blog hosting--mostly consumer blog hosting.

Although the company offered Pro plans for users who need more than the basics and enterprise options for the big boys, there was nothing in the middle for the SMB crowd.

There is now. The aptly named WordPress Business caters to small businesses needing a domain, storage, and a wide selection of themes for building a Web site.

Essentially a bundle of premium upgrades, WordPress business includes not only site hosting and a free domain, but also live support (via chat, or email when chat isn't available), unlimited storage, and your choice of unlimited premium themes.

Perhaps best of all for an SMB: no ads.

All this runs $299 annually. WordPress points out that if you were to purchase these items and upgrades separately, they'd cost you closer to $700.

No doubt there are slightly cheaper hosting options out there, but I think the unlimited storage, support, and themes make WordPress Business a compelling choice. For any SMB looking to set up shop on the Web, it's definitely worth a look.
