Hello everyone 👋,
On January 5th I publicly announced having co-founded a company as a commercial companion to the Flarum Foundation. In the long term to fund its development efforts, but also as a major contributor of the Flarum ecosystem.
Blomstra, providing managed Flarum communities, is now in open beta! Back then I mentioned that "2021 will bring you an amazing managed Flarum solution" and we did it! The past months we have worked hard to create a scalable, reliable, fast and climate friendly platform for any size of community. We even introduced the ability to use every premium extension available on Extiverse and support developers (both freelancers and companies) in offering private extensions to their clients from within our hosting services.
A couple of other benefits of our platform
- Our lowest plan (Seedling 50 which offers a trial period) is sufficient for many small to medium communities. Only guests and members, excluding bots, count towards your online users limit.
- Exceeding your plan size does not cause your community to go down. We monitor these limits and reach out to you in case your occasional overuse turns into a consistent pattern and an upgrade is recommended.
- Already over 100 extensions are supported! We review every new addition and do our best to support the respective maintainers in building compatible, bug free and secure extensions.
The platform has already been tested by a handful of very patient customers. Their communities have been fundamental in testing scale, resolving bugs and optimizing for performance. Our open beta, as such, no longer is about the bare essentials of our hosting services, but about gaining momentum and scale. We're very excited to be able to open our doors to you, if you have any questions feel free to respond here or reach out to us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
To celebrate our open beta we are offering a limited number of lifetime licenses of the Blomstra Payments extension for only $ 49,90.
Thanks for following us on this great adventure!
