WordPress is an open-source content management system that powers thousands of websites. Anyone can create and scale their website with WordPress thanks to the library of plugins and themes to choose from.
WordPress Hosting, on the other hand, is a type of web hosting optimised for websites built on WordPress.
Nearly all types of web hosting support WordPress sites. But what makes WordPress Hosting a better choice is that you get tools and features tailored for WordPress sites –including automatic software updates, security updates, and quick WordPress installation.
Yes. It’s best to go with a plan that fits your business needs. Our web hosting plans allow you to upgrade anytime you need more resources. You can contact us to discuss the best option for your business.
Our servers hold up to 2000 websites. Sharing the server with other clients allows you to use its resources at an affordable cost while maintaining optimal performance.
On top of that, we do not overload our servers.
Despite its power, servers can only hold up a certain limit. Limiting our servers' hard drive and memory usage at a maximum capacity of 80% ensures that all the websites can handle traffic spikes without compromising your application’s performance.
WordPress Hosting does not use cPanel or Plesk Hosting Manager. So, you’ll be able to manage files directly on your WordPress Dashboard or using File Transfer Protocol (FTP) client.
On your browser, type in your domain followed by /wp-admin to access your WordPress Dashboard login page. Logging on to your Account Manager and heading to Web Hosting will also lead you to your dashboard.
Alternatively, you can use an FTP Client – an application you use to transfer files between your webserver and computer – to quickly upload/download files to/from your hosting account.
You can use FileZilla, but any FTP client will do.
Our customer service team can assist you in the initial setup. Once ready, they may extend help with the basics – like dashboard navigation and plugin installation.

Our system automatically keeps a backup of your website. However, we highly encourage you to back up your files as well.
You can create weekly or daily backups – depending on your preference. Doing so assures that your backup files are recent.
Automate your backups if you cannot do it manually.
After pointing the A record to WordPress Hosting, we recommend setting up a Maintenance Mode Page. On this page, users will know that the website is temporarily down. You can also add your contact details so they can lodge their inquiries.
You can easily set up a Maintenance page with a plugin – just double check if the plugin you’re using is safe and updated, of course!
On the other hand, you can also setup a staging site. Staging sites are an excellent choice for eCommerce sites to limit revenue losses.
Staging sites are “duplicates” of your live website. It allows your website to work without interruption while you update your site. Once the update goes well on staging, apply the changes and publish it on your live site.
