New WordPress Update Service (beta)

As in every newsletter we stress about updating your websites; even though most of our customers do update their website each month, this may not be enough, in example an average WordPress website has between 2-10 updates each single week (sometimes even multiple updates in a day). Not all of them are security issues.

If you have a default WordPress site and you want 040hosting to update your site automatically you can request this service (free of charge during the beta) from our support department. We will then add your site to our automatic update system. Note that this will only work with WordPress websites with 'standard' plugins and 'themes' which also can be updated from the WordPress repository. If you made any manual changes to a themes or plugins in the code you can NOT use this service unless you provide us with the names of the plugins and themes so we can exclude them from updates (you still have to make sure they are patched and secured yourself though). 

Is the beta safe ? well we believe so, we are using the same service for our own websites for over 6 months without any issues and hundreds of updates. But of course you make a regular backup of your site, because you should always do that.

Having a large amount of WordPress sites? contact our support department for more information and access to the system for yourself.

Unlimited Addon domains and the truth behind it

Unlimited Addon domains and the truth behind it

First things first, what are addon domains

When you buy a hosting package you often have limited or even unlimitted addon domains, but what are they exactly ?

At hosting we call the main domain attached to the account the 'Main Domain' all other domains attached to the account (this could be other websites) are called addon domains; or sub-domains. There is also another term you may hear which is Parked domains but these are distinctively different from addon or subdomains as they never have their own content but forward to a existing content under one of your domains, subdomains or addon domains.
