Your Questions Answered

What is Medieval?

Medieval offers a premium hosting service to customers who are serious about the management, performance, security and profitability of their WordPress website.

Why should I go for "Managed" hosting?

Managed hosting provides for much higher computing resource availability and an environment for your WordPress site that is optimised and geared for high-performance. WordPress sites that are run in a typical shared hosting environment often exceed low resource allocations, leading to site downtime and slow performance.

Managed hosting for WordPress often entails far superior support compared to that provided by generic hosting. This is particularly true for us as we have over 25 years experience maintaining high-performance linux systems and over 10 years development experience working with WordPress.

Do you have a control panel?

The short answer is no, because our service is fully managed for you. Adjustments to your specific website hosting environment are made at the server level — not some fancy-pants control panel.

Our aim is to take every worry you might have about "the backend stuff" and allow you to spend more time concentrating on your business.

We do not offer a confusing control panel to our customers. All configuration changes are done for you. We call that service.

Do I need technical skills to use it?

This is the beauty of using Medieval to host your WordPress site. We take care of all the technical aspects. You only need to know how to use WordPress.

Do you offer an email service?

Of course! We have a number of email options depending on your requirements.

What happens if my website goes down?

Your website could go down for any number of reasons. Either something on our end causes your site to fail, or something you did, like install a dodgy plugin. In any case, our engineers are alerted if your site goes down.

Your website can also go down if our security systems detect any anomalies with your WordPress core files. If this happens, we'll definitely be in touch.
