    Frequently asked questions

    Have a question, let's chat about how we can host your WordPress site, and help grow your business.

    Get in touch
    • What is DNS management?

      We will ensure your DNS records are setup and pointing correctly to your new Web Assist Managed WordPress hosting. We’ll need temporary access to your DNS provider to edit the zone file, but don’t worry, we’ll explain it all and where/how to get all those.

    • Why do you not allow eCommerce sites on your WordPress hosting?

      We do in fact offer premium enterprise-ready hosting for WordPress eCommerce websites (both Woo, SureCart and others). Due to the resources an eCommerce website requires, We recommend hosting an eCommerce website on it’s own dedicated cloud server, this keeps things fast and reliably, especially concurrent sales/checkouts. If you have an eCommerce WordPress website, get in touch for a free consultation and we’ll be happy provide your store with hosting in over 32 locations worldwide.

    • Do I sign a contract?

      No contracts or strings, it’s strictly month-to-month which means you can cancel anytime with a standard 30-day notice period. Some of our clients though prefer annual billing, that’s an option if you prefer.

    • Does your WordPress hosting come with email accounts?

      Definitely not, these are very specific server stacks engineered specifically to host WordPress websites, and only WordPress websites. Shared hosting usually comes with email accounts included, and for basic hosting needs this is works, but not for serious websites. If you need email accounts, we can provide separate email accounts, get in touch.

    • What if I need more disc space?

      Very few WordPress sites require anything near 15GB of disc space. If your site ever does require more disk space, we seamlessly upgrade your hosting account in 5GB blocks of space and charge accordingly.
