Got a question about our Joomla! Web Hosting service?

Contact us and we will be happy to answer any Joomla! hosting questions. Alternatively you can browse through the following list of frequently asked questions.

Joomla! Hosting FAQ

How many Joomla! websites can I host?

Each Joomla! hosting account allows you to host a single website/domain. If you need to host mutliple Joomla! websites take a look at our reseller hosting packages.

How soon will my Joomla! Hosting account be set up?

Typically new accounts are set up within 15 minutes of receiving payment. This is subject to our order screening procedures. If your order is flagged for manual approval it may take up to 1 working day.

Which Joomla! Hosting package do I need?

The Joomla! application itself requires less than 7MB of storage space. The 'Budget' account is large enough to host a Joomla! web site with hundreds of pages. It also has enough bandwidth to handle many thousands of visitors per month. Start small and think big! You can upgrade at any time.

What version of Joomla! do you install?

We will always install the latest stable version.

Can I use mod_rewrite and .htaccess?

Yes. Our server configuration is optimised to provide everything Joomla! needs to function correctly. You can override many default Apache settings using .htaccess and mod_rewrite is available as standard. If you order Joomla 1.5 we will pre-configure it with search engine friendly URLs and take care of the mod_rewrite rules for you, giving your Joomla website a much better chance of acheiving good search engine rankings.

Can I upgrade my Joomla! Web Hosting package?

Absolutely. Our service is designed to grow as you grow. You can easily upgrade to a larger account at any time and there is no need to move your web site.

Can I install Joomla! components, bots, modules, templates, etc?

Yes. We do not place any restrictions on what you can do. You have the highest level of Joomla! administration privileges, full FTP access to all your files plus full access to your MySQL databases.

Do you offer command line access?

To ensure the security of our servers and protect all our customers we do not provide command line access (otherwise known as shell, telnet, ssh etc). Doing so is a huge security risk. However many of the tasks you would commonly perform on the command line can be achieved using the tools available in your Plesk Hosting Control Panel. Of course our technical support team is on hand 24/7 to help with everything else!

Do you offer Windows or Linux based Joomla! hosting?

Our servers run either Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Cent OS, both considered to be highly stable, enterprise-level operating systems. In our experience this is a more flexible, secure and reliable hosting environment for Joomla! web sites.

What support do you offer?

If you are new to Joomla! or if you need a quick refresher we provide a series of fantastic video tutorials that you will find very helpful. These will get you of to a quick start and they are a useful resource to dip into while you are developing your Joomla! web site. They cover topics such as managing your content, creating menus, installing plug-ins, managing users, editing templates and much more.

As far as web hosting support goes you can get fast, knowledgeable and friendly help from our team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Just chat to us via our web site or email in. We will help with databases, file permissions, configuration settings, email, DNS etc - basically anything to do with our web hosting service.

Can you help move my existing Joomla! site to your servers?

We have extensive experience in moving all kinds of web sites from other hosting companies. We know that uptime is critical to most web site owners so we take a great deal of care to make the process seamless without any interruption in web site or email service. Feel free to contact us for a quotation.

Is Joomla! better than Mambo?

Currently there isn't much difference between the 2 applications. The eagerly anticipated release of Joomla! 1.5 will introduce many improvements including better support for accessibility and web standards, more control over the HTML Joomla! creates, an FTP file system and LDAP support to name but a few. It also boasts a much more comprehensive and more powerful API for developers who want to extend the capabilities of Joomla! with their own components and plug-ins. There is certainly a larger user base and more development activity on the Joomla! project. We predict that the 1.5 release will leave Mambo in the shade.

Do you sell Joomla! Templates?

We don't provide off-the-peg templates but what we can do is take your page designs and convert them into Joomla! templates. Every web site is different so if you are interested in getting a quote for Joomla! template creation please contact us.

Can you help with installation of Joomla! modules, bots, components, templates?

Yes. Although most are extremely easy to install yourself. Usually installation only takes a few minutes so we charge a nominal fee. Sometimes it may be a little more involved so we provide quotes on a per-case basis. Please contact us for a quotation.

So what are you waiting for? Order your Joomla! Hosting now and start building your web site in minutes!

Who is responsible for keeping my installation of Joomla! software up to date?

Joomla! updates are your responsibility. In order to maintain the security of your Joomla! software it is recommended that you keep your version of Joomla! up to date by applying software updates when they are released by the Joomla! team. Upgrades are normally straight forward but if you need help then we are happy to upgrade your Joomla site for a small fee and we provide quotes on a per-case basis. Please contact us for an upgrade quotation.
