WooCommerce hosting — FAQs

WooCommerce is a free eCommerce plugin for WordPress. It has been built to enable seamless integration of the most important eCommerce functions into the popular WordPress framework. WooCommerce comes with all the core features you need to create and manage your online store, from pre-installed payment gateways to stock inventory management. On top of these core functions, WooCommerce offers thousands of extensions and add-ons — both free and paid — that make it easy to customize your store the way you want. WooCommerce is an open-source project, meaning that it is open to an active and growing community of contributors.

The requirements for WooCommerce hosting are relatively simple. With the right web hosting, creating and running a WooCommerce store is extremely straightforward and requires no prior experience. WooCommerce has been built especially for WordPress, making it particularly easy for those who are already familiar with the popular content management system. With IONOS web hosting and the latest version of WordPress, the WooCommerce plug-in can be installed in just a few clicks. Should you need it, our customer service team is also there to provide 24/7 support. Managed WooCommerce hosting from IONOS comes with a domain name, SSL certificate, and plenty of storage, so you can focus on setting up your store.

When it comes to product variety, WooCommerce hosting is one of the most flexible options for your online store. In addition to physical goods, you can also sell anything from digital downloads and content to subscriptions and services. What's more, WooCommerce also offers plenty of features to help you manage and promote your products; choose from a variety of product types, such as grouped products or downloadable products, and easily track stock levels and add to your product catalog. You can choose to enable or disable discount codes and coupons, and can list just one product or thousands — WooCommerce is completely scalable. On top of the core functions, there are a vast range of both paid and free extensions which can further customize the types of products you sell and how you sell them.

WooCommerce hosting with IONOS comes with an SSL certificate included, ensuring safe transactions at all times. In addition to WooCommerce hosting with SSL, our hosting plans also come with DDoS protection, which helps to maintain site performance in the event of a DDoS attack. Finally, we also run all necessary security updates automatically, so you don't need to worry about forgetting to run an update which may put your site at risk. Our servers are located in some of the most secure data centers in the world, and our customer service team is available around the clock to offer support and answer any questions regarding security.

WordPress hosting is great for a blog or a website, but if you want to sell online you'll want to go with web hosting that's specifically optimized for WooCommerce. WooCommerce hosting plans usually feature more storage, larger file limits, and better performance than standard WordPress hosting. With a WooCommerce hosting plan from IONOS, you'll get performance hosting and WooCommerce comes preinstalled, making getting started easy.

Not necessarily. The cost of WooCommerce hosting depends on the features included. Many providers of WooCommerce hosting charge extra for managed updates, domain, SSL or email. All of these features come included at IONOS, making their premium hosting plans good examples of cheap WooCommerce hosting that provides great value!
