FAQ’s about our services

How does managed WordPress hosting differ from shared hosting?

Managed WordPress Hosting is specifically tailored for WordPress sites. It includes features like automatic updates, security optimizations, daily backups, and WordPress-specific support. Managed hosting provides a more streamlined and optimized environment for WordPress, making it faster and more secure but often at a higher cost.

Shared Hosting, on the other hand, involves hosting multiple websites on a single server, sharing resources like CPU and memory. It’s a more affordable option but may lack the speed, security, and WordPress-specific optimisations and support found in managed hosting. Shared hosting is suitable for smaller websites with lower traffic.

How Can I Quickly Fix the WordPress White Screen of Death (WSOD)
  1. Check for Plugin Issues:

    • Deactivate All Plugins: Often, a plugin conflict is the cause. Access your WordPress site via FTP, go to the /wp-content/ directory, and rename the plugins folder to something like plugins_old. This deactivates all plugins. If your site comes back, it was a plugin causing the issue.
    • Identify the Culprit: Rename the folder back to plugins and then deactivate each plugin one by one in the WordPress admin area (if accessible) or by renaming individual plugin folders inside the plugins directory until you find the one causing the problem.
  2. Switch to a Default Theme:

    • If deactivating plugins doesn’t solve the problem, try switching to a default theme (like Twenty Twenty-One). Access your site via FTP, navigate to /wp-content/themes/, and rename the folder of your current theme. WordPress will automatically revert to a default theme. If this fixes the issue, your theme was likely the cause.
  3. Increase PHP Memory Limit:

    • Sometimes, the WSOD is due to exhausting the PHP memory limit. Increase the limit by editing the wp-config.php file. Add the following line of code: define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');. This increases the PHP memory limit to 256MB. If you’re still experiencing issues, the problem might be more complex, involving server settings or custom code.
  4. Enable Debugging:

    • To get more insight, enable debugging in WordPress. Edit the wp-config.php file and set WP_DEBUG to true by adding define('WP_DEBUG', true);. If there are PHP errors, warnings, or notices causing the issue, they will be displayed on the screen, pointing you towards the problem.
  5. Check for Corrupted .htaccess File:

    • A corrupted .htaccess file can also cause the WSOD. Rename your .htaccess file to something like .htaccess_old to deactivate it, then try accessing your site. If it works, go to Settings > Permalinks in your WordPress admin and simply click “Save Changes” to generate a new .htaccess file.
  6. Consult Your Hosting Provider:

    • If none of these steps work, there may be an issue with your hosting environment. Contact your hosting provider for assistance. They can check server logs that might indicate what’s causing the issue.
