WP-Mountain is a specialised WordPress hosting platform that has been built by WordPress developers and designers. The platform is an uncomplicated way to manage your servers and WordPress sites with added tools to help the success of your websites. There are no shared resources, so the resources you pay for are for you and your WordPress sites. We have servers all over the world, but our HQ is in Liverpool, UK.
WP-Mountain is your local WordPress hosting service, with personal support and advice on tap. We have a wide range of servers ready for you and your business. We set up each server for you and keep it updated for as long as you keep need it running.
This is the measurement of how much memory a server has available for your websites. Memory is used by the server to run the programs needed to run your website which includes the operating system, database and any calculations when it figures out how to display your website.
This is the size of the hard disc drive on the server. Every computer has a hard drive of some type. All our servers have solid state drives which means they can retrieve information just that little bit faster than drives with spinning discs. The size of the drive matters because it needs to be enough to not only store the operating system for the server, the database but also all of your media files, images, videos and music..
Every time you look at website your computer is sending small packets of information back and forth. These packets of data will give your computer everything it needs to show a website on the screen in front of you. Although they are tiny in size, the volume soon adds up so this the measurement used to ensure you have enough capacity to send enough of these packets.
We send each server a wave every few minutes to make sure it’s still alive and running which is an excellent way to keep your uptimes high. However, what happens when the server is up but your site goes down, for example, if your database crashes? With each WordPress site you can choose to monitor the site uptime as well as the server uptime, and if your site goes down, we will let know so you can step in and fix it sooner rather than later.
We want your website to run as fast as possible, and we are always updating our methods to speed up our servers. Sometimes though it’s not the servers fault that your site is slow, so we monitor the performance of each WordPress site you have with us to help you identify what could be making your website slower.
We back up your database and all of the files on a regular basis. The data we backup allow you to re-create your website should you ever need to. What is important here is that our backups are stored separately from your server in most cases in a different part of the world. Keeping website backups on your server as many companies do isn’t very smart.
All of our certificates are provided by ‘Let’s Encrypt’ are on a mission to encrypt the internet and keep all of our websites safe and secure. The kind people at ‘Let’s Encrypt’ provide these certificates for free, so we offer them for free to you. An SSL Certificate is two files that compare themselves to each other, and if there is a match, then it allows the small data packets to pass back and forth. If the files don’t match the SSL will tell you that is no longer things the connection is secure, and you should do something about it.
Most people have heard of SEO or Search Engine Optimisation and there plenty of companies who offer their services at making your website more accessible to find. Although we don’t provide this, we do give you an SEO report based showing four weeks of data about your links and domain authority - extra help when you want to see if your SEO goals are on target.
Each server has its IP address that is just on your server. An IP address is like a cross between a telephone number and a map; it allows those small packets of data to find the best route between your computer and your server.
