Hippo Web Builder FAQ's

Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions about our website builder.
Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between Hippo Web Builder and your other hosting

Hippo Web Builder includes an easy to use, drag and drop interface to allow you to create a professional website with no coding skills or prior knowledge. You could have an amazing design within minutes.

 

 

What's the difference between Hippo Web Builder and WordPress?

WordPress is a developer standing web building application that can produce some amazing websites, but it has quite a large learning curve. Hippo Web Builder allows you to get a great looking website online quickly with no prior experience.

Do I need a domain name?

Yes, all websites require a domain name so people can find them. However, we offer a free domain name for 1 year (subject to a 2 year purchase), so there is really no excuse not to get online!

I already have a domain name, can I use thison this service?

Of course! You can either transfer the domain name to us or change your nameservers so that it points to Hipposerve. If you get stuck, our Hippo Helper team will be on hand to guide you through the process.

Can I upgrade a package, if I outgrow it?

Yes, Hippo Builder is designed to grow with you. It can be upgraded from your Hippo Customer Portal, in just a couple of clicks!

Can I downgrade a package, if I am not using all the facilities?

It is possible to downgrade all Hippo Builder plans. However, if you have purchased a 1 or 3 year discounted plans we will be unable to refund the difference and the price will be updated at the start of the next billing cycle.  See our terms and conditions for further details. You are also unable to downgrade back to the Free Trial.

How long does it take to set up an account?

Your Hippo Builder account will be set up as soon as the first payment is received. You will be able to start creating within a few minutes!

Is the FREE Trial really FREE?

Yes, the Free Trial is completely free for 30 days. The only limitation is that you are unable to publish your site live, although you can see a full preview.

You can upgrade to a paid plan at any time.

After 30 days the free trial will be closed.

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

Is my account backed up?

Whilst we backup our servers in the event of catastrophic failure, we do not provide these to customers to restore their services as a result of individual account failures.

We would always recommend that customers purchase one of our backup plans.

What payment methods do you accept?

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

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

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, Hippo Builder aupports a range of E-Commerce solutions.

My Best Investment and Asset

    

"The service in both technical and hosting is that of premium, 5 star and the relationship I have with them is very strong. They host and provide elite technical support for four of my businesses within the private business and health sector and have been on hand to provide both incredible support since that time began. The best investment and asset, by far, I have to my portfolio of businesses. Thank you for the fantastic support, the ongoing premium service and helping me and my business grow from the ground up. It’s meant everything, the world and every bit more. "

“Even though I pay a very small amount of money for my product, The Hippo couldn't help me enough, I wasn't made to feel like I wasn't worth his time, in fact i was flattered that even though a lower paying customer I was still given the individual customer care. He was really patient and helpful. Thanks so much for helping me to sort everything I needed. Best email service ever. I'd highly recommend Hipposerve to everyone, especially people who, like myself, aren't "tech savvy". Thanks again!”

Outstanding Service

    

"I am the chairman of a small charity. Hipposerve advertise that they host charity websites for free so, having designed a website myself, I contacted Hipposerve and this was confirmed. Our charity has had to pay for nothing but the domain we chose to use. The service I have received from Hipposerve has been outstanding. 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?"
