Hippo Business Pro Hosting FAQ's

Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

Frequently Asked Questions
What's the Difference between Hippo Hosting and Hippo Business Pro Hosting?

Hippo Business Pro plans use VPS technology. VPS stands for Virtual Private Server meaning that the entire file system of the machine is yours. Unlike our Hippo Hosting packages, all of the disk space, RAM, virtual CPU cores, etc. will be dedicated for your use.

Is Hippo Business Pro hosting set up instantly?

Unlike shared hosting, there is a little bit of work we need to do our end in order to provision your Hippo Business Pro hosting. The time this takes depends on the options you have chosen on your account. We can usually have your account ready for action in between 4-12 hours, and we will keep you fully informed of the process.

Will I need a domain name for my Hippo Business Pro Hosting?

Yes, in order for people to be able to find your website or online application you will need a domain name. The good news is you can get a FREE domain name (certain TLD's only) for one year. (See our T&C's for full details)

What control panels does the Hippo Business Pro Plan Come with?

Our Business Pro plans come with the robust and versatile Plesk control panel as standard

If you prefer the more familiar cPanel you can select this at installation. This however has additional licensing costs.

 

 

 

Does my Hippo Business Pro plan come with SSH access?

No, Hippo Business Pro is a managed service that provides Hassle Free hosting with the power of a VPS server. If you would like to have full root access to the inner workings of your own VPS, we recommend that you look at our Hippo VPS plans.

 

 

How many websites can I Host on my Business Pro Account?

As this is a managed plan, we recommend only hosting one website per account. Hipposerve are unable to manage multiple websites on one account. If you need to run multiple websites we recommend you choose one of our VPS hosting options.

 

 

Can I host adult content on my Hippo Business Pro Plan

You would be surprised how often we get asked this.

No, Hipposerve  has a very strict, zero tolerance adult hosting policy. We do not allow any content that could be considered adult or X rated.

Please check your Acceptable Use Policy for full details of prohibited content.

What happens if I use up all of my storage space?

First of all, this is very unlikely as all our plans have generous storage space. The average website is less on 1GB in size!

If you do run out of disk space, your VPS will not be able to complete all its tasks properly, and you will start to get errors.

Don't worry, though, we are able to add additional storage space from as little as £1 per 40 GB per month.

Just contact our support team here, and we will be happy to discuss your options with you.

 

Do you offer a backup service?

Yes. During the sign-up process you’ll be able to order back up services for your server.

We will automatically back up everything once a day and these can be restored by contacting our support team, who can get you up and running.

If you do not choose a backup option, it is up to you to secure your data, or you can purchase one of our Hippo Care Plans and we will mange this for you.

What billing cycles do you offer?

On most of our products we offer monthly, annual or 3 year billing cycles.

In most cases, the longer the billing cycle, the more money you save.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards, direct debit and more than 50 different cryptocurrency coins.

We are also able to accept BACS payments by arrangement for annual or 3 yearly billing cycles only.

Can I resell my Business Pro Web space?

We offer specific hosting plans for web designers and developers who want to publish more than one website.

Significant savings can be had by signing up to one of these packages.

The more sites you add, the cheaper each site becomes!

We also take care of all the techie work, so you can get on with your design business

Can I have additional domains pointed at my account?

Yes, we actually recommend it. The more versions of your business name that you have parked or being used as an alias, the less chance there is of someone else using that name and passing themselves off as you.

All our packaged allow multiple domain name parking and our technical team will help you set it up.

Can I run an ecommerce site?

Of course, we support and are able to offer advice on a range of E-Commerce solutions.

The website I had designed needed to be transferred to the WordPress platform. This was done by Hipposerve absolutely free-of-charge and the website became live within two days of ordering the domain. My contact at Hipposerve has been quick to respond to email enquiries and has provided as much help as one could possibly expect. Who could ask for more?"
