Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • Question-1 :  What should I consider while selecting the best WordPress Hosting provider?

    When you are purchasing a WordPress Hosting, you should select the best provider which can serve your all hosting requirements. It is important that you find a reputed and reliable hosting provider that goes extra miles for you ensuring the long-term success of your business.

You must ensure that the company provides faster response time - most preferable online chat support. If you are still facing any trouble while selecting the best provider for your WordPress site, feel free to contact us!

  • Question-2 :  What should I consider while selecting the best WordPress hosting plan?

    When you are planning to purchase WordPress hosting for your site, following are few points you should check:

    Optimized server for WordPress: When you want to host a website which is WordPress CMS, you must host it in the well-optimized server. If the server is not optimized, you may face slowness while accessing your site. Since you may install many plugins in your WordPress, the server must be optimized to load your site optimally.

    Control panel: Web hosting control panel makes it really easy to manage web hosting operations. Using control panel, you can easily create domains, sub-domains, databases, email accounts, manage your files and much more. You must double check that you have a fully-featured control panel for the hosting package you are purchasing.

    Resource allocation: Most of the hosting providers mention resource allocation for each package on their site. Based on your resource requirement, you can select the best suitable plan for your WordPress site. Most of the packages come with unlimited resources nowadays. You can even host unlimited domains using addon domain option. Select the best suitable plan for your WordPress site after studying the resources of hosting package.

    Database support: You must confirm that you have MySQL database available with your hosting package. You will need it to host your WordPress site. Most of the providers offer unlimited MySQL databases with WordPress plan though, it is better to confirm before you make a purchase.

    One click installation: Sometimes, installing a WordPress becomes mission-critical task if you are not tech-savvy. You must check whether the hosting package you are purchasing has a One-Click Installation feature or now. Using this facility, you can install WordPress or any other third party CMS, shopping cart and much more in a single click. You just need to enter the details in the form and click on install button.

    These are the few points we have listed. If you are still not sure to select the best package for you, do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Question-3 :  Should I go for free OR cheap WordPress hosting?

    When you are purchasing a hosting package which is specifically designed for a WordPress site, you are looking for an environment with the best quality and well optimized to load your WordPress site optimally. You should confirm that the package has no restriction to run your site. If free/cheap package suits your requirements, you should check their all terms carefully and test their service before making your website live on their server.

  • Question-4 :  Should I consider the location while selecting the best WordPress hosting provider?

    A location is an important factor while choosing the hosting service for your site. You will have a better performance/loading time for your site if it is hosted in the same country from where it is being accessed. If you have most of the visitors in USA, the USA based hosting service will suit you the most.

  • Question-5 :  Do I really need a control panel for my WordPress site?

    A control panel is one stop solution for web hosting. If you are not tech-savvy, the control panel will handle the web hosting operations for you. It allows you to add domains, website, FTP accounts, email accounts, databases and much more from the web interface. You will not need to handle such tasks manually, a control panel will do this for you. Most of the hosting providers offer control panel pre-installed with the server.

  • Question-6 :  Is there any difference between WordPress plan and simple plan?

    Well, WordPress plans are specifically designed for hosting WordPress sites. Such servers are well-optimized to run WordPress site optimally. Many providers provide WordPress package with pre-installed WordPress for your domain. You may even get pre-installed WordPress plugins etc. You may also get managed service included for your WordPress site with some providers. While the simple plans are vanilla plans in which you need to install such applications at your end.

  • Question-7 :  Should I go for a WordPress hosting with managed service?

    If you are not tech-savvy and often need support to manage the things, you should go with managed service. Most of the hosting providers offer managed service to their clients and manage their clients' account/server. Some providers offer monitoring service with their managed support.
