Not Quite Right For You?
Take a look at our other hosting options.
Your Site on a Virtual Private Server (VPS)
As a member of the Web design club, you get to host your own website for free on our shared server!
However, as a web designer, you will know the importance of having a fast responsive website. This is why, we have an exclusive offer for Web Design Club members which includes your website on a VPS!
We will provide The Hippo Business Pro—Success plan for just £24.99/mo (normally £35.99/mo) PLUS a FREE web development account on the VPS too (see below).
All set up for you too!
*shared hosting plans only. Other plans allow customised environments.
We will set up your Dev Space too!
It can be frustrating developing websites on shared hosting. Shared resources mean at busy times, your work rate can grind to a halt.
If you choose to host your site on a VPS server, we will set up a staging/development area, so you can design and build at full power 100% of the time.

Hippo Web Designer Club FAQ’s
Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
How do I get my discounts?
Apply to join our web design club! Once your account has been created, your discounts will be applied. When you purchase any further services from us, either via your customer portal or the website, discounts will be automatically added at checkout.
Can I charge my client for the hosting?
Yes you can. We will bill you monthly for your services, and you are free to charge your customers, a mark-up to add a revenue stream for your business. You can apply these additional charges to all of our hosting products and add-ons, including our backup and email solutions.
How am I billed?
When you purchase a new service, you will be billed directly. After that, you will receive a combined monthly bill for all your services.
If a new service is set up part way through a billing cycle, it will be prorated to align with your existing services, so after the initial bill you won’t keep getting multiple bills each month.
The exception to this is for domain names, as their renewal dates can vary.
What plans are available to Web Designer Club Members?
All our current hosting plans are available, including Business Pro and VPS hosting. We are also able to build for bespoke plans by arrangement. However, Hippo Value and Hippo WordPress Value plans are not eligible for a discount.
Do I have to use Hipposerve for my domain names?
Obviously we would prefer it and with our 99p domain offer (on selected domains for the first year), we do offer great value for money. However, if your client has a domain name elsewhere, you can choose either to move it to us, or to point it to our name servers and leave it where it is. Our technical team will be happy to support you with this.
Will I have access to the website control panels.
Of course, each hosting plan will come with its own control panel (Control panel varies depending on hosting specification).
Both you, and if you wish, your client can have access to this.
Do you offer a backup service?
Yes. You can choose a stand-alone backup option for each individual hosting plan, or you can purchase one of our Hippo Care Plans, and we will manage this for you.
All with a Website Designer Club discount of course !
What billing cycles do you offer?
You can choose any billing cycle you wish (monthly, annually, or 3 yearly) but discounts are only applied to monthly billing cycles unless agreed by arrangement.
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 host sites with adult content?
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 this and other prohibited content.
Can my clients have more than one domain pointing to their site?
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 packages allow multiple domain name parking and our technical team will help you set it up.
Can I build Ecommerce Sites?
Of course, we support and are able to offer advice on a range of E-Commerce solutions. We would however recommend that you choose our Hippo Ultimate Hosting, Or Hippo Business Pro hosting for e-commerce sites as they tend to attract more traffic and are more demanding performance wise.
