Mostly 1s – WordPress Hosting

WordPress is one of the world’s most popular content management systems for many reasons. Not least, because it’s suitable for use by beginners – including bloggers and entrepreneurs who need to set up their own business websites.

With WordPress, you can choose from a range of ready-made themes that determine the layout and design of your site. Then, the intuitive dashboard makes it easy to add pages and posts to your site.

Another highlight of WordPress is that it’s flexible, too. Thanks to the variety of themes and plugins available, there are so many ways you can customise your site in terms of both form and function.

Mostly 2s – Web Hosting Economy

Our Web Hosting Economy plan is idea for running a single website. Prices start at just £3.99 a month and that price includes a free domain name for the first year – if you already have a domain name you can transfer it over to us.

When you choose a Web Hosting Economy plan, you’ll be able to manage all your website admin using the cPanel control panel. It’s got a graphical interface to make jobs quicker to carry out.

What’s more, the hosting plan comes with more than 25 one-click applications, so installing CMSs like WordPress and PrestaShop is less of a chore.

Web Hosting Economy plans come with 100GB of SSD storage and 512MB of memory, but if you find you need more resources as your site grows, you can upgrade to the next plan up in a single click.

Mostly 3s – WordPress Ecommerce

Our WordPress Economy plans make running an ecommerce store easy. The packages let you set up WooCommerce in a few clicks.

The plan costs less than £25 a month, however this includes a free domain name for the first year, a free SSL certificate, and £4,000 of premium WooCommerce extensions that allow you to customize your site in a multitude of ways.

Mostly 4s – Web Hosting Maximum

You can run up to 200 websites on a Web Hosting Maximum plan and enjoy unlimited resources like flatrate bandwidth, SSD storage and mailboxes.

While these plans are powerful and ideal for experts – due to the resources – you don’t need to be a technical whiz to make one of these plans work for you. All Web Hosting range plans at tsoHost come with cPanel, to make it easier to manage your site’s admin.

Prices for these plans are less than £15 a month and the price includes a free domain name for the first year and a free SSL certificate.
