WordPress Hosting FAQ
How soon will my WordPress Hosting account be set up?
Order WordPress hosting now, pay with your debit card, bitcoins or paypal and you will be building your new WordPress web site within 15 minutes. We will even give you a special URL you can use to access your web site while you are waiting for a new domain to become active or transferred.
Which WordPress Hosting package do I need?
The WordPress application itself requires less than 5MB of storage space. So long as you optimise your images properly the 'Budget' account is large enough to host a WordPress web site with hundreds of pages. It also has enough bandwidth to handle many thousands of visitors per month. Start small and think big! You can upgrade at any time.
What version of WordPress do you install?
Our 1-click Installer will always install the latest stable release of WordPress.
Can I use mod_rewrite and .htaccess?
Yes. Our server configuration is tuned up to provide everything WordPress needs to function correctly. You can override many default Apache settings using .htaccess and mod_rewrite is available as standard (required for search engine friendly URLs).
Can I upgrade my WordPress Web Hosting package?
Asolutely. Our service is designed to grow as you grow. You can easily upgrade to a larger account at any time and there is no need to move your web site.
Do you offer command line access?
To ensure the security of our servers and protect all our customers we do not provide command line access (otherwise known as shell, telnet, ssh etc). Doing so is a huge security risk. However many of the tasks you would commonly perform on the command line can be achieved using the tools available in your Hosting Control Panel. Of course our technical support team is on hand 24/7 to help with everything else!
Do you offer Windows or Linux based WordPress hosting?
Our servers run Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In our experience this is a more flexible, secure and reliable hosting solution for WordPress web sites.
What support do you offer?
As far as web hosting support goes you can get fast, knowledgeable and friendly help from our team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Just chat to us via our web site or email in. We will help with databases, file permissions, configuration settings, email, DNS etc - basically anything to do with our web hosting service.
Can you help move my existing WordPress site to your servers ?
We have extensive experience in moving all kinds of web sites from other hosting companies. We know that uptime is critical to most web site owners so we take a great deal of care to make the process seamless without any interruption in web site or email service.
