Email accounts are not included. However, Pressable will configure your domain name's mail exchange servers so that your email is delivered to the email provider of your choosing.
Migration of WordPress sites to Pressable hosting is offered and can be arranged through the control panel. Migrating from other content management systems or static HTML and CSS files is not offered, but Presable can refer you to a qualified consultant to assist with migration.
Yes, WordPress installations are created automatically. However, you initiate the installation process using a site creation tool in your account control panel.
Pressable hosting is just for WordPress websites. If you plan to host both WordPress and non-WordPress sites, you will need to use a different host for your non-WordPress websites.
The standard Pressable WordPress installation includes several popular plugins, such as Akismet and Jetpack, which you can uninstall if you wish. However, there are several other plugins which cannot be removed: Batcache, Never Email Passwords, nginx, Disable Welcome Email, WP SMPT Config, Pressable, and Gauge.es.
Since backups are included with every hosting account, backup plugins are banned. Several other site management, caching, database, and other miscellaneous plugins are banned. Refer to the knowledge base or support for additional details on specific plugins that are not allowed.
The standard hosting plans do not allow enabling of multisite networks. If you wish to host a multisite network, get in touch with Pressable for a custom quote.
Domain name registration is not offered. Customers must use a different domain name registrar, such as GoDaddy or eNom, to register domain names and then point the domains at Pressable's name servers.
All updates to the WordPress core are installed automatically. In addition, any plugins hosted at WordPress.org will be updated automatically. You must update themes and commercial plugins on your own. However, support will assist you in the update process if you are unfamiliar with it.
All sites are backed up once a day. In addition, a tutorial is provided to allow customers to manually back up their websites - a recommended additional step in securing website data. For an additional cost, your backups can be hosted externally.
No, the hosting setup does not support installation of WordPress in a subfolder. However, locating WordPress in a subdomain is supported.
Sort of. A Slack channel, called the Pressable lounge, is available. However, this is a semi-public venue since Pressable staff and other customers will all be able to see messages. It's a great place to talk about WordPress issues in general, but if you have specific support issues, those need to be handled through the support ticketing system.
A CDN is included to speed up website delivery by caching static content, and Pressable has partnered with Google PageSpeed to optimize websites hosted on their servers. All indications are that sites should load very quickly when hosted on Pressable's servers. However, keep in mind that the configuration of your site will affect page load speed.
When you create a new website it will initially be created as a staging site and won't be published live to the web until you're ready for it to be. In other words, a staging site is automatically created when you use the site creation tool in the account control panel.
Yes, an affiliate program is offered. Look for the "WordPress Affiliate Program" link in the footer menu of any page of the website to learn more.
Typical hosting reseller accounts are not offered. However, it does appear that Pressable can be configured to host client websites. If you wish to host websites for clients but provide them with a private area to manage their account, get in touch with Pressable to determine what can be set up.
A system status website is available and updates on system-wide issues are published promptly. To visit the page look for the "Status" link in the footer menu of any page of the website or in the drop-down menu under the "Help" option in the main site navigation.
