Q1:What domain name can I have? You can choose whatever name you want, if it is available. The cost includes a domain name using the .com, .co.uk, .eu, fr, .org or similar extension. There are others possible, but please check with us if you have a special requirement. You can check availability of possible names at our domain host OVH HERE
Q2: What happens after the first year? We will review the activity of the site and make recommendations for the following year. After the first year, you can simply renew your domain and the continue the hosting at a nominal charge. Details are included in the WEBSITE RATECARD
Q3: Can I have multiple languages? Yes, the WordPress software allows for multiple language support. The software does not translate the content though as this can prove problematic and for multiple languages your content will need to be translated to produce duplicate entries as would be the case with an HTML based website. We can assist with this, if required. Let us know if you need this in your WEBSITE REQUEST.
Q4: Can I have email addresses? The basic package use email redirection based on your domain name – so if you have email@example.com, anyone sending an email to this address will be redirected to your existing email account. You can set up a return address on your account on your PC to firstname.lastname@example.org. As most of us have mailboxes through their home ISP we think this works for most people. In addition, we would always recommend contact via a contact form on the website, so your email address is not displayed on the site, as this encourage spam. If you feel you would like to have actual mailboxes attached to your domain name, it will be necessary to change hosting package at an additional cost of approx €30 per year. See WEBSITE RATECARD
Q5: What if I want additional features? WordPress is a very flexible system and it is possible to add features to cover a number of useful services. Let us know what you need and if possible we can add it easily. If it is not available, it may be that the service will need to be created from scratch and we can quote on this. Put the details in your WEBSITE REQUEST
Q6: What if I want a different type of website? We have created websites using html or PHP backed html as well as other CMS style software and we are happy to quote on a specific project. Tell us what you need in your WEBSITE REQUEST
Q7: How do I find out more about WordPress? We are in the process of compiling some tutorial and set up a Demonstration Site, but in the meantime you can visit the WORDPRESS WEBSITE, where you will find a lot of useful explanations of its workings.
Q8: What if I already have a domain name? We are happy to transfer this to our hosting if you want. If you are looking for a faster service then it may be that you need to consider a Virtual Private Server (VPS) or even a dedicated server and we are happy to quote on setting up and managing this for you. Tell us what you need in your WEBSITE REQUEST
Q9: I have web space with an ISP, can I use this? There is no easy answer to this. If you have MySQL and PHP then you can run WordPress on your ISP webspace. We are happy to try for you, but cannot guarantee the success. There would be a small saving on initial set up, but if it does not work we would need to reinstall.

Q10: I just want website hosting – is this possible? Yes, we can provide hosting, including domain name for as little as €30 per year. Alternatively, hosting with greater capacity are available by negotiation. Tell us more in your WEBSITE REQUEST
