Managed WordPress Hosting
We just launched a brand new product, managed WordPress hosting. Our aim is to make web hosting as simple and easy as possible so any one can get their content online. We think our product will do just that.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is the most popular content management system (CMS) in the world. It is a software package which is installed on to a web hosting account. It stores all the information in a database and allows the user to create content for the website, upload themes and plugins all from the administration panel. This is different than a traditional website where the owner would either need to enlist a web developer which costs lots of money or would need an understanding of HTML. You would create your website on your computer using HTML/CSS then upload it to your server using FTP. This would take weeks but with WordPress you can have a basic site up and running within minutes. There are thousands of themes which are able to be installed in 1-click then you can further customise them to make it your own easily. WordPress would have to be the best thing that has happened to web development!
