Frequently Asked Questions

What does managed WordPress hosting mean?

Managed WordPress hosting means that all core WordPress updates, all WordPress plugins, and licensed/purchased theme updates are tested and applied automatically and without intervention – which frees up our clients to work on their site content. It’s the perfect compliment to our web design service, ensuring one vendor services the website from top to bottom.

Does VMGuard hosting come with a control panel?

No, but you will still have WordPress admin access, and if needed FTP and SSH access. If any issues arise with your hosting, simply contact us for assistance.

Why is this better than other hosting?

Most value website hosting providers have a very “self-service” approach, which is why control panels and web interfaces are offered by hosting companies. This approach definitely saves money, but can be confusing and frustrating if you don’t understand WordPress hosting.

Our value is in our customers – they contact us for their hosting needs, and we work on their behalf to resolve the problem. No confusing web interfaces or control panels.

Do you support WordPress multisite?

Yes. If your multisite has large traffic needs, additional charges and configurations may apply.

How much is the CDN?

CDN pricing is based on usage in blocks of 25GB. Each 25GB block is $3 per month. Usage does not accrue from month to month.

Do you host email?

No, we do not host email. Many clients have had success with Google Suite, which includes Gmail and Google drive.

Can I bring my own premium SSL?

Yes, we can assist with deploying a premium SSL. Contact us for more information and to discuss this topic.

Will you host this site I developed?

Most likely no. VMGuard is a service offered to clients of Venn Marketing, and we pride ourselves on creating secure, fast, and robust websites. Hosting third party websites means our team has not reviewed code security or conducted performance auditing.

If you need assistance selecting a new web hosting company and migrating a website, Venn Marketing would be happy to help with a migration project. Contact us for more information and to discuss a project.
