Web Hosting For WordPress

WordPress vs other private, unique systems.

The key difference is marketing power. When you use WordPress, you have more options, integrations, and results. Not to mention the best out-of-the-box SEO advantages and well-documented ease of use.

And, WordPress is the most popular CMS on the planet. Being open-source means that there is a community behind the system that can help support, train, and market your web presence better.

To take advantage of this powerful website software you need a proven web hosting company.

It is important to note that we are talking about WordPress.org vs. WordPress.com. The main difference between the two is who is actually hosting your site.

With WordPress.org you are hosting your own site (through Shepherds Loft) vs. their servers. A few benefits of “self-hosting”: no ads, no restriction on analytics, and plugins are allowed.

In order to use the dot-com version effectively you would have to pay for premium upgrades (to remove ads, use your own domain name…) that aren’t cost-efficient. 

Common Web Hosting Questions

I want to get more clarity about your services and fees beyond hosting.

WordPress management includes web hosting, support and licenses on preferred products. 

Is training included

No, we provide maintenance plans to assist you with website updates. We do encourage you to blog. The Divi Builder can be challenging but the default blog article editor is simple to use.

How does maintenance work?

Website maintenance is sold in 1/4, 1/2, and 1 hour units, to do whatever you want. We will do our best to estimate as we go, so small tasks is ok. This will put you on a budget and includes any website changes, additions, SEO, lead capture, etc.

Why don't I need an SSL certificate and will the site be http: or https:?

You no longer need to renew your SSL license. Our managed WordPress web hosting includes a free SSL certificate for every website. Your website will start with https://

Can I point or redirect other domain names to my website?

Yes, and there are two options here. You can point the A record to our IP address but you need to provide us a list of domain names. You can also “forward” your domain name to your primary domain name.

Do you provide FTP access?

No, we don’t normally provide FTP access, specifically to the production server, however, given some time we could set this up for you. We can also offer you a development area so that you can push new designs from development to production without FTP access.

How often do you run upgrades?

We upgrade everything everyday, including WP core, DB, themes, plugins, and PHP. NOTE: any modifications to Theme or plugins files will be overwritten.

What else does your Web Hosting include?

We run backups daily, clean/optimize weekly, scan for viruses weekly, and have an uptime monitor on every website.

How do you deliver emails from forms?

We use a third party service called Sendgrid to deliver emails from forms.

Can I transfer my website to another hosting company?

Yes, and we will help you. However, we own all licenses to themes and plugins which are not transferrable.

Does it cost anything to launch or migrate my website?

We have a full quality checklist for every website we make live. If our assistance is needed then you need to book an appointment from the website. There is a minimum 2 hour charge for launching a website either from development or another server.
