WordPress website hosting – FAQ

WordPress is the most common web publishing platform and the most used content management system in the world: 30 percent of all websites are created and maintained with this CMS. This makes up a market share of more than 60 percent in the CMS sector. Although the figures speak for themselves, it's hard not to wonder why WordPress is so popular.

The CMS mostly owes its success to its ease of use and its comprehensive modification possibilities. The source code is open source and a large community has therefore developed countless – and mostly free – themes, plugins, widgets and tools. These technology and design options enhance the system's range of functions. Beginners and professionals alike can enjoy a wide range of applications and development opportunities that allow them to work efficiently and conveniently with the system.

The domain of WordPress is the blog (abbreviation of 'weblog'). The software was originally developed for the creation and management of the 'internet diary'. The software makes it extremely easy to set up, manage and maintain blogs as well as complex websites with and without an online shop, thanks to extensions.

Opt for WordPress blog hosting with IONOS and start your blog today!

The content management system is easy to customise and is ideal for:

  • Bloggers
  • Companies
  • Agencies
  • eCommerce companies

Bloggers are the typical target group for WordPress, and the content management system was primarily developed with blogs in mind. It is one of the most popular CMS in the blogosphere. Both small and large companies and agencies benefit from its flexibility. From company websites and portfolios to brand showcases and online shops, just about any project can be completed with the popular CMS.

For beginners, IONOS MyWebsite offers even easier options for creating a website. The intuitive website builder is suitable for all industries and has integrated marketing tools. No previous knowledge or experience is required.

With the popular Content Management System (CMS), you can design, manage and publish blog articles or website content easily and intuitively. By choosing professional WordPress blog hosting with an experienced provider like IONOS, you can combine these features with a comprehensive technical service. There is no need for you to invest in a powerful and secure server infrastructure – you rent one so that you can spend more time on your WordPress blog. We take care of the maintenance and security for you, and keep the technical infrastructure up to date.

With WordPress blog hosting, setting up your own blog is quick and easy:

  1. Choose your domain
  2. Install WordPress in just a few clicks
  3. Create an admin profile

Once setup is complete, start on the design and content of your blog. If you have any questions, our support team is available around-the-clock via phone.

The quality of the hosting service plays a very important role. That's why we have optimised our service especially for WordPress, making your content available within seconds. This saves your website visitors time spent waiting for pages to load and has a positive effect on the Google ranking of the site, as fast-loading websites rank better than slow ones.

IONOS WordPress hosting packages have many advantages:

  • IONOS takes care of all technical and server-related issues
  • Simple step-by-step instructions guide you through the installation process
  • The most important plugins are pre-installed
  • With the WordPress Assistant, you can choose from lots of free themes (design templates)
  • Our 24-hour support team will help solve all your technical issues
  • An SSL certificate is included
  • Email is included

Create websites, shops and forums quickly and easily with WordPress. With many suitable themes, plugins and widgets, you will be ready to go in no time. As an experienced provider with an up-to-date IT infrastructure, IONOS ensures high performance and optimum security. Fast and reliable SSD drives save your files and databases and ensure short and secure access time.

No. The IONOS WordPress version does not differ from the version that can be found on the official WordPress site.

By choosing IONOS as your provider, you will automatically start with the newest version of the software and your WordPress will receive automatic updates to ensure it is up to date at all times. There are no differences between the two when it comes to functionality. IONOS customers benefit from a comprehensive service including round-the-clock support for any questions or problems that arise, automatic updates, high-speed servers and high-tech security. All your data will be protected by IONOS's high security standards.

The customisation possibilities of both varieties are identical. Users can install the same plugins, themes and widgets that are also available with other hosting providers. By choosing WordPress web hosting with IONOS, you can concentrate on the essentials – a great design for your website and first-class content for your brand-new digital adventure. We will look after everything else.

When creating a WordPress blog, you can customise and develop it however you like. Due to its open source nature, users from around the world both create and share new extensions (plugins) and usually make them available for free. When opting for WordPress blog hosting, you need to decide what exactly your website should offer its users. Next, you choose the extensions you want to use and simply plug them in, so to speak.

The themes, i.e., the design templates, offer huge variety. Either choose from thousands of design themes that other users provide for free or purchase a theme from a commercial provider. In terms of design, you can either get a professional to design your site layout for you or, with the right programming skills, design your own.

Looking to start your own online store? Then you will require plugins and themes with which you can present products and integrate payment methods. Our WordPress hosting package offers secure and high performance solutions. With the right plugins and themes you can also easily set up a forum. Forums require a quick connection to a MySQL database, regular backups and a traffic flat rate – all of which is offered by IONOS WordPress web hosting.

Also, with WordPress and its themes, responsive web design isn't a problem. Responsive web design is the automatic adaptation of the display and the display size of a website on all end devices (PC, smartphone, tablet, etc.).

Depending on the type of project, we suggest a functional WordPress template that best suits you. Whether it's a photo blog, a portfolio or a text-heavy blog, there is a suitable design template for every format. Simply select your preferred template and activate it in one click.

The answer to both questions is yes. The Gutenberg editor is available as a plugin and can be installed at any time with just a few clicks. All of the WordPress themes offered by IONOS are compatible with the Gutenberg editor.

Try it out and enjoy using WordPress even more easily and conveniently than before. Install posts and pages or build a whole new website, shaping your online site to your needs and requirements. If you're not happy with the Gutenberg editor, you can switch back to the classic editor at any time – or use another editor, which can be just as easily integrated into your WordPress installation by plugin.
