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

The hosting uses exactly the same fast and robust infrastructure as our standard hosting. There is nothing different about it. The Hippo Builder is included for free on all of our hosting platforms. You can decide if you wish to use it or not.



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

WordPress is a developer standard 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 this on 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 hosting and 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 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.

A free basic backup service is also provided on all hosting plans, except Hippo Value. 

We would always recommend that customers purchase one of our hippo care plans to ensure full site redundancy.

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?

The website builder does not include ecommerce facilities. In our experience, it is far better to build an Ecommerce site using more dedicated e-commerce platforms, such as WordPress with Woo-Commerce, or PrestaShop. Both of which can be installed on Hippo Hosting plans.

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. "

The Hippo Couldn't Help me Enough

    

“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!”

Restored My Faith in Web Hosting

    

"Hipposerve simply took away all the hassle I was expecting with transferring my domain names. I have had some awful experience with other well known companies, but this friendly Hippo has restored my faith in hosting my own domain name. The service is excellent, and the transfer couldn't have been easier or more straight forward. Thanks so much."

Steven Charman - Action Coach


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?"

Michael Gaukroger - Ventnor Enhancement Fund


It's a Pleasure to Work with Hipposerve

    

"I know nothing about hosting or codes, and with Hippo, I didn't need to learn it at all! Jason advised me which hosting would be the most ideal for my business, gave me great tips on how to improve the speed of my website and took care of all the setup. I didn't have to worry about a thing as the whole process was swift and straightforward. I would not hesitate to recommend Hipposerve to anyone!"

Sara Tomaszewska - Little Media Agency


Great Support

    

"The best thing about Hipposerve is they don't just sell you hosting and leave you to it. They actually help you personally get your website started, and offer support in the on going updating and maintenance. It really was helpful and was great support to get going as this was my first website."

Fast and Reliable

    

"I run a small voice over company, it's more of a hobby rather than a business and I needed somewhere to host it that was fast and reliable. My existing provider, actually one of the 'big players', was charging me a fortune with a slow service and substandard support. Hipposerve's support has been brilliant, and to top it all, I am paying less!"

Jamie Dione - Voice Over Artist


Far Superior

    

"I had 54 email addresses with over 25,000 emails (nearly 20GB of data) that I wanted to transfer. Hipposerve worked with me to set the best possible transfer date, when things would be quiet and they worked through the night to ensure that everything was up and running by Monday morning. The new email system is far superior to our old one too. Thank you for your support"

Craig Blackford - Event Organiser

The Guys at Hipposerve were Great

    

"Transferring from one web host to another can be a real headache. The guys at Hipposerve were great and helped me conduct a free transfer, ensuring minimum downtime for my site and other services.
