DIY Self-Managed WordPress Hosting FAQ's.

Does KartHost use cPanel for WordPress Hosting?

No, we do not. We use our Advanced VPS WordPress Platform. However, for other types of hosting, we do have cPanel Shared Hosting if you are looking to build another type of website and not planning on using WordPress.

Am I responsible for Updating WordPress & Plugin & Themes?

The short answer is yes. We recommend that you check your site at a minimum once a month for updates. However, it is much better to check at least once a week.

If you are not sure how to update yourself, then we will be happy to provide you a checklist for updating your WordPress Site.

Difference between Managed WordPress & DIY Self-Managed WordPress?

With Managed WordPress we take care of all the mundane items of keeping your WordPress updated and safe with an extra layer of security. We want you focused on creating the best possible website, not worrying about bad guys because your install of WordPress hasn't been updated.

DIY Self-Managed is on the same platform as Managed WordPress. We hand over all the responsibility of making sure your WordPress Core and Plugins and advanced Security to you. This is really for more advanced users of WordPress that wants more "hands-on" of the operation of their site but the benefits of our Advanced Managed VPS Container Hosting for WordPress

My WordPress Site is at another Host. Can you Move it?

In almost all cases we can move it! Reach out to us and we would love to discuss moving your WordPress site to our Advanced Managed VPS Hosting for WordPress.

Who Handles My WordPress Security?

We provide you a secure Advanced VPS Platform. Your WordPress site is the ONLY site loaded into the "Platform"

Here is what we recommend for securing your site.

Shield Security in combination with Cloudflare WAF. You are certainly welcome to use other security combinations of your choice. Another recommended Security Plugin is WordFence. And Webarx Security plugin/service.

Does My WordPress Site Need its Own SMTP Service to Send Emails?

The quick answer is yes. 

If your site has any kind of notifications that it sends out, for instance maybe a Contact Form, you need a quality SMTP Email Sending Service that can send those on your behalf. We recommend Mailgun.com, SendGrid, MailJet. 

With every install of WordPress, we will provide you with the free Post SMTP plugin so you can use the above services plus many more.

If you do not have any our default platform will send out as a last resort, but there are no guarantees the emails will arrive at the intended sender since there isn't an SPF record allowing to send on your behalf.

It is a necessity to obtain your own SMTP service.

 

 

Does KartHost Provide Transactional Email Service with My Hosting?

Transactional email is when we as individuals or company's send emails back and forth in normal discussions with an individual.

We do provide you a Credit of $2.49 a month to be used with any of our KloudEmail Email Services.

 

Is There a Discount Given on Multiple Sites in Same Account?
