WordPress Hosting FAQs

Having helped 100’s of users start their websites, we have answered quite a lot of questions about WordPress. Below are some of the answers to the most frequently asked questions about WordPress hosting.


Do I need WordPress hosting to start a website?

If you want to build a professional WordPress site then you need web hosting. Your hosting server is where your website files are stored. Every website that you see online uses a web hosting provider. At Digital Mermaid we provide web hosting services.

Are there any free WordPress hosting providers?

There probably are, but we highly recommend that you stay away from them. In most cases,  free WordPress hosting is not really free and providers usually will put advertisements on your website. They may even distribute malware to your users so your site and users are not secure.  Last but not least, they can shut down your website at any time without any notification to you. If you use the site for business this can be really harmful to your marketing efforts.  Avoid anyone who offers to give you free WordPress hosting, especially if you are serious about your site and want your users to be secure.

That’s smart.


Do I need to have my domain and WordPress hosting from the same provider?

No. You can purchase your domain from a provider like GoDaddy and use one of the WordPress hosting providers listed above. However, if you don’t have a domain already, then it’s easier to use the same provider. We do sell domains and hosting plans, and we are local to Philadelphia, so we urge you to keep your dollars in our local economy. 

Can I use your WordPress hosting for an eCommerce site?

Yes you absolutely can. All our WordPress hosting that we recommend offer SSL certificates in which you can purchase through our portal. Which is what you need for running an eCommerce website. Most of the WordPress hosting options listed above offer free SSL with your account with us.

How to secure my WordPress hosting account?

Your web hosting account is where your website files are stored. So it’s very important that you secure it. The best way to secure your WordPress hosting account is to use a strong password and avoid logging in from public locations. We also recommend that you follow our instructions as you walk through your set up. We offer 24/7 support for all our hosting and some of our products. Our website design team and marketing services include options for us to build your site for you, which is included in our marketing plans. 

How do I install WordPress on my WordPress hosting account?

Every WordPress hosting account that we sell comes with a 1-click WordPress install.

Do I need a cPanel WordPress hosting?

cPanel is a type of control panel that a lot of WordPress hosting companies use. No, you do not need cPanel, but it does make things easier in terms of installation, managing email accounts, etc. We also sell these options on our hosting pages. You can also visit. for all our other hosting needs. 

How much traffic can these WordPress hosting options handle?

Our  WordPress hosting options can handle billions of impressions each month.

The amount of traffic your website can handle really depends on the WordPress hosting plan that you’re on. Most shared hosting plans can comfortably handle 1000 to 2000 visitors per day as long as your website is optimized for performance..

As your website grows, our WordPress hosting technicians may ask you to upgrade to our managed WordPress accounts. 

Can I switch my WordPress hosting provider later?

Yes, you can absolutely switch if you’re unhappy with our services. Most WordPress hosting companies offer free migration services which make the process fairly smooth. However, if you want to do the migration yourself, then you can follow our step by step guide on your account with us. 

Does my WordPress hosting datacenter location matter?

The location of your data center does make a difference in your website performance for a specific geographic location.

If majority of your audience is in United States, then you want to choose a data center in U.S. If a large portion of your audience is in Europe, then you should choose a data center in Europe.

Should I purchase monthly WordPress hosting plans or commit long-term?

You will notice that almost every WordPress hosting company offers huge discount for choosing long-term plans. We do the same and usually ask you to join for a year. If you are serious about your website, then you will likely keep it for more than a month.

We always recommend not choosing monthly WordPress hosting plans because they cost almost twice as much. It’s a better deal if you choose a 12 month or 24-month plans.

Do I need any WordPress hosting addons?

We do offer addons to our services. You have options on a wide variety of services. You really don’t need these services when you’re starting out.

We recommend that you should add security and an SSL certificate if you are selling online. But you can uncheck everything in the order process and only purchase what you really need: WordPress hosting.

You can buy WordPress hosting addons if you need them in the future.

Does your company offer professional branded email addresses?

Yes we do. We will give you the ability to create a branded email address. However, we recommend that you don’t need to use us. There are plenty of other options. 

Do you offer website backups?

Yes, every WordPress hosting company claims to keep backups of your website. However things happen, and from our experience, we advise our users to install a WordPress Backup Plugin and keep their own backups. These are free from within the backend of your site.
