Run one or 1000 blogs at once from a single place

Manage as many blogs as you want with ease. b2evolution is an application that allows you to run one free blog or 1000 blogs at once from a single place. Once you find your preferred hosting package, you'll get b2evolution pre-coded for free, which means you won't need any technical skills to install and use it.

Even though there's a smaller community involved than on WordPress, the app is packed with loads of useful features that makes managing multiple blogs at once a breeze. In addition, there's a growing number of plugins and template skins powered by b2evolution that you can use and customise so your blogs can stand out from the crowd.

Why use b2evolution?

Easy to use

b2evolution is simple to install and upgrade. When you get a hosting package, you only need to install the app once and then use it for 1,2,10,100, 1000 blogs at the same time.

Each blog you create can live on a different page and even on a different domain. You have the freedom to set up as many "alias domains" as your web host allows you to, and b2evolution will take charge of running a different blog on each domain.

SEO friendly

The app allows you to configure each URL type with follow or no-follow and also each page with index or no-index. You can also set titles for your posts that are different from their H1 and add meta tag information as you see fit.

In addition, you can 301-redirect obsolete posts and create custom 404 error pages that can also be redirected (301, 302, 303...).

Huge variety of widgets and plug-ins

Easily customise the blogs or sites you host with 123-reg by making use of the numerous widgets and plug-ins available. You can add calendars, contact forms and search functions, show your most recent posts and comments in the sidebar, and more.

If you can't find what you're looking for, either install prebuilt plugins created by the community or use the advanced plugin framework that allows you to extend the app with any feature you need.

Efficient collaboration

b2evolution makes collaboration a breeze as it allows you to have multiple users and authors writing, moderating and customising the blogs you're hosting with us, each with a specific level of permission.

Editors can write articles and save them in Drafts so the admin can review them before publishing; web designers can customise the blog theme any time you want to improve something.

Quick access to blog stats

Host your blog or site with 123-reg and enjoy b2evolution's integrated stats feature that allows you to see all activity for each of your blogs, including searches, referrers, direct accesses, user logins and more.

The app is also packed with Server Side Analytics which help you identify and block all spammer activity. You'll be able to track everything from AJAX requests to robot, crawler and spider activity.

Some extra features you can't be without

  • Advanced categorisation

    Organise your blog posts into different categories and sub-categories by date, subject or theme.

    You can publish a post under multiple categories and also cross-post an article on multiple blogs at the same time.
  • Customise your blog skin as you
    see fit

    Installing a new skin can be done with just one click. You can choose from a vast collection of blog skins and themes depending on the purpose of the site you're hosting with us - whether it's a forum, a photo album or a simple blog.

    You can then customise yours as you see fit or, why not, make your own blog theme.
  • Attach files to posts and comments

    b2evolution allows you to attach files to your posts but also to comments. This means that your readers will have the possibility to write comments on your posts that not only include text but also pictures, thus making your posts much more interactive and engaging.
  • Protect your blog against viruses and spam

    Hate spammy users or comments? When you host your site with us, it's the last thing you'll have to worry about as with b2evolution's AntiSpam Deluxe as well as its Server Side Analytics features you can not only identify spam but also block it without much effort.

    Take advantage of the community's shared blacklist to block comment and referrer spam.
