Frequently asked questions

For common WordPress Hosting questions, our FAQs are here to help.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is a content management system (CMS), software that enables the creation, publishing and ongoing maintenance of websites. It’s the most popular CMS worldwide due to its intuitive interface and powerful features. These include a huge choice of WordPress themes that offer instant custom layouts, and WordPress plugins that provide simple ways to implement specialised functionality.

What is WordPress Hosting?

WordPress Hosting is a web hosting service. It provides the computer hardware and network resources necessary to make WordPress websites accessible to anyone on the internet. With WordPress Hosting, your WordPress website is hosted on servers managed by Fasthosts at high-performance UK data centres. This way, WordPress Hosting ensures that your WordPress site loads extremely quickly and is always available for everyone to view – and at a far lower cost than buying and maintaining your own server.

The WordPress software that runs on WordPress Hosting is the official version with all the features and functionality that you would expect. But WordPress Hosting differs from other solutions by providing a complete WordPress package: the software itself, plus space for it to run on a high-performance hosting platform. WordPress Hosting also includes a full range of web hosting features and benefits.

How is WordPress Hosting optimised for performance?

Our WordPress Hosting platform has been newly designed and tested, specifically for running WordPress. The architecture is built using enterprise-grade hardware to ensure superb performance, including smart SSD storage that provides superfast access to your WordPress data. WordPress Hosting also enables caching for static content, giving your website an extra speed boost.

Does WordPress Hosting include a domain? What if I already have one?

Our WordPress Hosting package includes a domain name for each website, free for one year. Register your choice of domain with .com, .co.uk, .uk or .london.

If you already have a domain name, it’s simple to use it with WordPress Hosting. Just transfer your domain to Fasthosts using the free domain transfer service, then point it to your hosting package. Guides to help you do this are available on our support site.

Can I run more than one site on WordPress Hosting? How does pricing work?

You can select the number of WordPress websites you need when you sign up. After that, it’s simple to add extra sites to your package whenever required. Everything is managed quickly and easily through your Fasthosts control panel.

Volume pricing means that the more WordPress sites you buy, the more you save. There are no extra charges for bandwidth, traffic or visitors, and the same discounts always apply when you add more sites to your package.

How do I install and update WordPress?

Our hosting platform installs the WordPress software automatically. Just follow the step-by-step process in our control panel – no downloads or manual installation required.

WordPress updates are also streamlined. By default, minor updates are installed automatically, so all the latest security patches are applied with no action required. You can also enable auto-updates for major version upgrades, or disable them completely if you want to keep your WordPress install on a specific version. Our user-friendly control panel gives you complete control to customise your update settings.

Can I migrate my existing WordPress site to WordPress Hosting?

If you have an existing WordPress site, it’s simple to migrate it to the Fasthosts platform. WordPress Importer is a plugin that helps manage the migration process, and it can be easily pre-installed when you launch WordPress from our control panel.

What themes and plugins are available on WordPress Hosting?

WordPress Hosting gives you access to the full range of themes available to all WordPress users. With thousands of free WordPress themes to choose from, you can customise your site with the exact layout you need, and find the ideal look and feel for your blog, brand, product or service.

WordPress Hosting also lets you choose from the wide array of WordPress plugins. To get up and running even faster, you can select from some of the most popular and useful plugins, and have them pre-installed when you launch a new WordPress site. These include Jetpack, an all-in-one marketing and security package; Akismet, which filters comments and messages for spam; Smush, providing handy image compression; and Yoast, offering powerful search engine optimisation.

Can I use WooCommerce on WordPress Hosting?

It’s simple to add ecommerce functionality to WordPress Hosting using WooCommerce. WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin that allows any WordPress website to function as an online shop. Just like the WordPress CMS, WooCommerce offers a user-friendly interface alongside a wide variety of customisation and expansion options – everything you need to build a custom shop and sell your products online. WordPress Hosting offers WooCommerce as a pre-installed plugin, so it’s even easier to start selling.

Is WordPress Hosting suitable for agencies?

WordPress Hosting offers the ideal solution for web agencies that need to manage multiple WordPress sites. Clients can be assured of maximum website availability thanks to secure UK data centres, plus WordPress-optimised performance for ultra-fast page loads. It’s simple to run large numbers of WordPress sites from a single control panel, and volume discounts help to lower costs. Comprehensive technical support is also available 24/7.

Can I use WP-CLI on WordPress Hosting?

Yes, WP-CLI is available on our hosting platform. Advanced users can utilise this command-line interface to streamline the management of WordPress websites.

Can I use SSH on WordPress Hosting?

Yes, SSH is enabled on WordPress Hosting. As the standard way of accessing a server, SSH (Secure Shell) allows advanced WordPress functionality, such as the ability to manage files directly on the web server.

How secure is WordPress Hosting?

UK data centres ensure exceptional levels of security with access control, 24/7 monitoring and ISO 27001 certification. The latest hosting technology protects your WordPress site from online threats such as DDoS attacks, and Fasthosts performs continual malware scans on the platform. In addition, each WordPress site includes an SSL certificate free for one year, and automatic software updates ensure the newest security fixes are in place.
