WordPress Hosting [Questions 4]

What WordPress Hosting package do I need?

We don't limit our customers on the number of visitors they get to their websites. Instead, we allocate each account 2GB of physical and virtual RAM allowing you to scale your websites accordingly. You're alerted inside of cPanel when usage reaches 75%. Most WordPress websites won't hit this limit unless they're using poorly coded plugins/themes or driving over 5,000 unique visitors a day.

Do you offer SSL support for my WordPress website?

Yes. All of our WordPress hosting accounts are integrated with Let's Encrypt. This allows us the ability to automatically integrate with all domains and sub-domains across our network, SSL (https) support.

What is LiteSpeed and how does it make WordPress faster?

LiteSpeed is a drop-in web server replacement for Apache. It makes your website load up to 9 times faster than “those other web hosts” (who still use Apache). LiteSpeed also offers their own caching engine for WordPress allowing for even better performance.

Does my WordPress hosting account come with Malware scanning?

Yes. We understand malicious code on your WordPress installation can cause some really nasty things, so we scan each server nightly for the latest threats and code injections. Malware is automatically sent to quarantine, which is deleted every 30 days.

VPS Hosting [Questions 4]

What is VPS hosting?

A VPS is an emulation of a computer, also known as a virtual private server, that lives within a parent server and shares resources with other virtual servers. This parent server splits up portions of itself for other virtual servers through software called a hypervisor.

A Cloud VPS instances can store multiple sites, email, DNS, databases, users, but most importantly these aspects can be managed through an easy to use control panel. Since a Cloud VPS is a simulation of a physical server, it also provides SSH/SFTP and Root access, allowing for libraries, modules and other services to be configured.

You'll have control to resize your server to accommodate for sudden spikes in traffic or scale down for post-seasonal businesses. By resizing you’ll be able to upgrade or downgrade your VPS instance allowing you to pay for only what you use.

Which VPS should I choose?
