FAQ – Frequently asked questions

WooCommerce is a free eCommerce plugin for WordPress. It was built to enable seamless integration of the most important eCommerce functions into the popular WordPress framework. WooCommerce comes with all the core features you need to create and manage your online shop, from pre-installed payment gateways to stock inventory management.

On top of these core functions, WooCommerce offers thousands of extensions and add-ons – both free and paid – that make it easy to further customise your store exactly the way you want. WooCommerce is an open source project, meaning that it is open to an active and growing community of contributors.

The requirements for WooCommerce hosting are relatively simple. With the right web hosting, creating and running a WooCommerce store is extremely straightforward and you don't need any prior experience. WooCommerce was built especially for WordPress, making it particularly easy for anyone who's already familiar with the blogging platform. With IONOS web hosting and the latest version of WordPress, the WooCommerce plugin can be installed in just a few clicks. If you need help, our customer service team is here 24/7 to provide support.

Managed WooCommerce hosting from IONOS comes with an SSL certificate, a domain name and webspace (storage), so you can focus on setting up your store.

When it comes to product variety, WooCommerce hosting is one of the most flexible options for your online store. In addition to physical goods, you can also sell anything from digital downloads and content to subscriptions and services.

What's more, WooCommerce also offers plenty of features to help you manage and promote your products. Choose from a variety of product types, such as grouped products or downloadable products, and easily track stock levels and add to your product catalogue. You can choose to enable or disable discount codes and coupons, and can list just one product or thousands – WooCommerce is completely scalable. On top of the core functions, there are a vast range of both paid and free extensions which can further customise the types of products you sell and how you sell them.

Managed WooCommerce hosting from IONOS comes with an SSL certificate, which helps ensure safe transactions. In addition to WooCommerce hosting with SSL, IONOS hosting packages also come with DDoS protection, which helps to maintain site performance in the event of a DDoS attack. Finally, we also run all necessary security updates automatically, so you don't need to worry about forgetting to run an update which may put your site at risk. Our servers are located in some of the most secure data centres in the world, and our customer service team is available around the clock to offer support and answer any questions regarding security.

WordPress hosting is great for a blog or a website, but if you want to sell online you should go with web hosting that's specifically optimised for WooCommerce. WooCommerce hosting packages usually feature more storage, larger file limits, and better performance than standard WordPress hosting.

With WooCommerce hosting from IONOS, you'll get high-performance hosting. WooCommerce comes preinstalled, making getting started easy.

Not necessarily. The cost of WooCommerce hosting depends on the features included. Many WooCommerce hosting providers charge extra for managed updates, domain, SSL or email. All of these features are included at IONOS, so you'll get cheap WooCommerce hosting that provides great value!
