Common Questions

Do you have questions about the different plans? These are some of the most common from our presales conversations, and you can find even more that cover over on our FAQ page here.

The number of sites you can create depends on your plan type. Our annual paid plans have no preset restrictions on the number of sites you can create. There are no preset server limits on any plan type.

Server prices vary from provider to provider. Typically, most VPS start at $10/month for a 1 CPU 2GB RAM instance, and you can scale up all the way to 100s of CPU cores at some providers. We don’t add any markup to hardware so you can purchase it directly at the provider at cost. Prices can also be found directly on their respective websites.

There are also dedicated server options such as OVH or ReliableSite gaming servers with 5+Ghz CPUs and significantly more RAM than similarly priced VPS. If you’re running a resource-intensive site that gets a lot of cache bypassing traffic (big WooCommerce or LMS for example), these are a great option.

It’s fairly straightforward: we make a little bit of money when you choose to sign up to certain infrastructure providers that we have integrated into the platform. And we’ve eliminated all of the costs associated with supporting these free accounts. Our support team is still standing by 24/7 in the (unlikely) event of any issues with the application or our stack. Core users are encouraged to enroll in the various educational pathways that we’ve built across our documentation and our knowledgebase.

Servers themselves aren’t included in our plans. We’re a SaaS platform that allows you to bring VPS or dedicated servers directly from providers such as DigitalOcean, Linode, AWS, Vultr, UpCloud, etc, and provision and manage them with our software.

You can choose the servers that best suit your needs and purchase plans for them directly at the provider at cost. 

We install and maintain our high-performance server stack, and this allows you to use all of our features (security, backups, staging, cloning, etc) for your websites. You effectively become a web host, with the backing of our software and support team.

We certainly do! We offer a 2 week free trial on our Panel and Developer plans. You need to add a valid credit/debit card, but you won’t be charged for anything before the end of your trial – as long as you haven’t had a free trial previously.

All paid accounts come with a 30-day money-back guarantee with no questions asked. Simply drop us an email or chat and we’ll process your refund within no more than 2 business days. Fees refunded can sometimes take longer to arrive back to your original payment method.

We also have a pretty comprehensive FAQ page here. Do you have a question you can’t find an answer to? Drop us a line and we’ll get back to you ASAP.
