Frequently Asked Questions

Searching for answers about WordPress hosting with Hosting MV? Don’t worry. We’ve got ‘em! Here’s our best advice on how to get started with WordPress hosting and identify which plan is right for you. We’ll also highlight the benefits of using WordPress, talk about site costs, and demonstrate how Hosting MV — paired with WordPress — can help fast-track your web goals.

What is hosting?
Let's break it down. The basics: you want a website. You've got great ideas for content, a vision board describing your site's mood, and even a wishlist for additional functions you want for your website. But how exactly do you get your site online? That's where hosting comes in. Your website needs a hosting provider to get it up on the web and publicly available to visit. Web hosts are companies that provide the server space necessary to store your website. As web traffic attempts to access your site, the necessary data is transmitted from the server to the visitors' device. Web hosting providers do, however, differ in the variety of plan types and options they offer. So having a quality web host is crucial.
How many websites can I host?
Just getting started? With a Starter Shared plan, you can host one website — a great place to begin! If you're looking to manage a handful of sites, a Shared Unlimited plan allows you to host any number of websites (we say unlimited and we mean it!). Whatever flexibility you need, HostingMV offers it.
Does Shared Hosting include email?
Whether you're building your business or your brand (or both), you want to put your best foot forward. An exclusive email tied to your domain can give you a professional edge as you work to grow your website. With HostingMV's Shared Unlimited plan, you get a dedicated email @ your domain. Additionally, HostingMV offers paid email plans, so anybody — even Starter Shared customers — can add professional email from their domain, up to five mailboxes with 25GB of disk storage each. And hey, you don't have to pay a pretty penny for these services; they start as low as $1.67 a month!
What's the difference between a domain name and web hosting?
A domain name is the unique .com (or dot whatever) address where your site can be found on the web. But in order to get your website online, you'll also need a web host to provide the server space necessary to store your site. For a fully-functional site, you need both a domain name and a good web host. Like peanut butter and jelly, they're better together. To make things simple, you can keep your needs in-house, letting one provider supply both your domain name and web hosting needs. Let DreamHost multitask for you — at a great price.
Can I upgrade to a more powerful hosting plan later?
Totally. We know your ultimate goal is probably to grow your website over time. We want that for you! When your site's traffic reaches rush-hour levels, is overflowing with content, or simply needs more high-powered tech and features, you can upgrade to a plan with extra bells, whistles, and performance power. While Shared Hosting is a smart, budget-friendly option when you're a beginner, a content-rich and heavily-trafficked site may demand a larger-scale plan, meaning additional server space, specially-dedicated resources, advanced security, and accelerated speeds. Wondering when to upgrade? If you notice diminished site performance or lack necessary space or resources, it's time to consider bumping your site to the next level and choosing a better-fit hosting package. No matter the current size of your website, HostingMV offers a perfectly-matched plan. We adapt to match your needs, making upgrading easy.
Do you include SSL certificates?
We care about safety big time — and so do your site's visitors. With a Shared Hosting account, you get an SSL certificate for free to add to your site. In this day and age, having an SSL for your site is a no-brainer best practice. Not only does an SSL help your visitors feel safe interacting with your site — this is particularly important if you run an e-commerce site — but it avoids penalizations you might otherwise earn from search engines without one. No website wants an “unsafe” or “insecure” label to bruise their reputation. While a SSL certificate isn't an end-all, be-all defense against internet baddies, it's certainly a great first step in the right direction to putting your site visitors at ease.
What if I have a domain at another company? Can I transfer it?
Yep! Forget about packing up virtual boxes or worrying about a forwarding address— we'll handle the transfer tasks and make moving to HostingMV E-A-S-Y. By transferring your domain registration from your old provider to HostingMV, you can easily manage all aspects of your domain from one convenient location. See our guide to get more details about moving.

Frequently Asked Questions

Searching for answers about WordPress hosting with Hosting MV? Don’t worry. We’ve got ‘em! Here’s our best advice on how to get started with WordPress hosting and identify which plan is right for you. We’ll also highlight the benefits of using WordPress, talk about site costs, and demonstrate how Hosting MV — paired with WordPress — can help fast-track your web goals.

Why should I use WordPress?
Whether you're in the web biz or not, WordPress is likely a household name, a common element in the conversation surrounding website creation. And that's no surprise, considering that WordPress currently powers more than 30 percent of the web — a significant chunk of cyberspace. Not only is WordPress a good option for beginners, but it also boasts scalability and advanced offerings for seasoned website owners looking to upgrade, grow, and expand. WordPress offers anyone-can-do-it usability with versatility and functionality perfect for building your own unique, high-performance website. You also have the added benefits of customizability, open-source flexibility, and a knowledgeable, diverse web community to collaborate with and reference if you get stuck. Plus, getting started with the WordPress platform is free and often takes less time than vacuuming your living room or choosing the next show to binge watch.
How Do I Get Started with WordPress?
Ready to get up and running with WordPress? Like we said, getting started is simple — no fancy tools, high-end budget, or technical expertise required. 1. Pick a domain name. Your domain is the unique web address where your website can be found — for example, YourName.com or WeLoveDogs.com. You get the idea. You buy domain names from a domain registrar or a web hosting company like us — we happen to be both! Keeping your domain registration and web hosting account under one roof makes managing your online presence even easier. 2. Purchase web hosting. You'll need access to a web server via a web host so that your site's data and files can be transmitted to anyone who visits your domain name. Hosting providers often offer a variety of packages based on the type of site you want to create, and on the individual needs and goals of your website. Want a top-of-the-line hosting account for your website? We've got you covered. 3. Download and install WordPress. With Hosting MV's HostingPress hosting plan, WordPress comes pre-installed. Yep, kick back and relax; there's no extra work. If you choose to go the Shared hosting route, we give you the option to pre-install WordPress when you sign up. Of course, if you want to install it later, you can always use our one-click installation option. Simple! 4. Customize your site to match your brand. Outfit your website with a quality theme and a few plugins to add extra features. Start simple. You can always build more over time. 5. Start creating content — blog posts and web pages — for your site. Give your site's visitors a reason to engage with you. See? Getting started with WordPress isn't so bad. You didn't even break a sweat!
Why Should I Choose Hosting MV?
No pressure, but you've got a big decision to make. The web hosting service you choose will affect how well your site performs, how large it can grow, and how easy it will be to build and maintain. We know you've got a lot of hosting companies to choose from. How can you sift through the noise to find the hosting service that works best for you? Hosting MV stands out from the crowd. We're one of the last independently-owned and operated web hosts in the business. We've grown from dorm-room beginnings in 2015 to helping more than 400 customers in over countries. We proudly host over 1.5 billion websites, WordPress blogs, and applications for designers, developers, small businesses, and more from our data centers in India. We are committed to powering your web goals — whether you're ready to take total control of a server or want our experts to handle the details. All the things you need in a web host — performance, privacy and security, scalability, and platform-specific optimization — are what we offer in spades.
Which WordPress Hosting Plan Should I Buy
The truth is, there are a lot of hosting options out there, so it can be hard to choose a plan. We get it. So think for a minute about the kind of site you want and the role you want to play in managing it. Hosting MV provides a range of WordPress-specific options to meet your site's individual needs. Let's dissect some of the more popular plan possibilities. Shared WordPress Hosting: The tried-and-true traditional hosting option that many website owners start with. Because it's the most affordable way to get all the basics for your WordPress website, it's perfect if you're new to WordPress. This beginner-friendly plan is a simple and low-cost option that can get you on your feet before you're ready to upgrade. Managed WordPress Hosting: Leave the heavy lifting of WordPress site maintenance to us. With our HostingPress plan, you get optimized WordPress hosting — extreme cloud performance and security, all hassle-free so you can focus on what really matters: building your business. Plus, you get access to expert 24/7 support and advanced tech. VPS Hosting for WordPress: Managing multiple WordPress sites? This plan option is the ideal way to support multiple WordPress websites, boasting a high-end performance platform, isolated resources, and greater backend control. VPS Hosting for WordPress allows for growth and scalability, making it a perfect, total-package plan for advanced websites owners. Have lots of traffic or manage multiple sites? You can opt for a dedicated server or Hosting VM's cloud hosting. Our team can even spin up custom hosting packages to fit your goals and budget.
What Is Managed WordPress Hosting?
Instead of trying to keep track of a hefty list of site to-dos, Managed WordPress Hosting is a no-hassle option. With this type of plan, your web hosting provider takes care of many of the key responsibilities of site management and performance so you're freed up to focus on other important site duties, like creating content and marketing your website. You build your brand; we'll handle the rest. Plus, your provider can provide an optimized hosting environment specific to the platform, and you have access to rich WordPress resources and an ever-expanding community of experts. It's a perfectly-balanced solution and a timesaver guaranteed to simplify your site management.
What Is HostingPress?
We're all about making your website dreams a reality. So our services cater to making your most crucial site functions as simple as possible. Plus, we provide plan options that allow you to be as involved — or as hands-off — as you want. HostingPress is our premium managed WordPress hosting service. It's an ideal choice for the person who wants extra performance, scalability, and flexibility from their WordPress site with minimal fuss and without the pressure of handling tricky technical details. And HostingPress is more than just great technology. Users get access to top-tier WordPress support with quick response times in addition to premium features.
Should I Buy Managed WordPress Hosting or Shared Hosting?
It depends! With a Managed WordPress Hosting plan, your hosting provider looks after any server resources specific to your WordPress installation. This means the host will take care of site chores such as installing the platform, keeping it updated, and performing backups. Plus, your server will be optimized specifically for WordPress with powerful built-in technology like caching. The benefits of managed hosting? Better performance Access to platform-specific support Scalability as your site grows Managed WordPress hosting is an excellent option if you need your web host to do the heavy lifting of keeping your platform updated and secure, so you can focus on your content and not sweat the technical details. Shared hosting for WordPress is also a popular site solution and has its own benefits. If your website is brand new, Shared WordPress Hosting may be a good starting place. While it usually offers fewer features than managed hosting — like limited server space, performance, software, and support options — you can build your site and grow an audience before you need to upgrade — and at more affordable pricing. So when choosing a plan, start where you are. Are you new to the website game and looking for a simple, budget-friendly option, or can you already boast a thriving site that needs advanced support and features? Whatever your situation, it's time to weigh the different plans based on your personal needs.
How Much Does a WordPress Site Cost?
Let's talk numbers. What is the actual cost of setting up a WordPress site? Short answer: it depends. But no matter the route you choose, WordPress isn't a budget-breaker. WordPress is free, open-source software that anyone can access and modify. To get your own fully-functional website running, you'll need to register a domain and secure web hosting — if you team up with Hosting MV, you can get your domain name included free with an annual hosting plan. When you're ready to customize your site, you can utilize the free themes and plugins offered in the WordPress directory. If you're looking for premium themes or plugins, the cost increases. With that knowledge in hand, you can balance the range of functionality you want out of WordPress, the extras you need, and the plan that fits best with your budget. Setting up a quality website with WordPress doesn't have to cost you your life savings. It just makes good (dollars and) sense.
