Web Hosting - Wordpress Development

DoIT Shared Hosting offers support for Wordpress on the Linux/Apache (LAMP) platform starting at the Nickel Hosting level. Anyone interested can apply for a Shared Hosting account.

WordPress is a PHP based web application backed by a MySQL database.  Each Shared Hosting customer is provided tools to manage files and database users and can also perform one-click installs and manage WordPress in the Plesk Toolkit:

Customers need to be aware that WordPress installations are not centrally managed as on or the WiscwebCMS Wordpress offering, for example.  It is yours to manage with the autonomy to install themes, plugins, etc. you wish to utilize.  Customers are advised to read through our KB: Web Hosting - Guide for Using Open Source Packages for tips on successfully managing their WordPress or other open-source applications.  Information on securing WordPress can be found in our KB: Web Hosting - Wordpress Security with WordFence
