WordPress Toolkit provides professional management features for your WordPress site directly from your web hosting control panel.
Perform a “One-Click” WordPress install, and all security recommendations and hardening are immediately applied. Or if you prefer, take the “Zero-Click” option – where we pre-install WordPress for you, following best practise recommendations and with all security hardening in place.
By far the most important feature, the “Security Check” feature allows you to perform a security scan over your WordPress installation to ensure that it has been configured properly. Select and apply security measures to harden your site against both known and unknown threats, with rollback support on changes affecting functionality.
Keeping your WordPress web application up-to-date is critical. With WordPress Toolkit, you can set your application to autoupdate, and WordPress core updates will be applied automatically. A daily check will email you a report of any required updates to your themes or plugins and if you run multiple sites, you can easily manage bulk updates to those WordPress sites from a single interface.
Issues of compatibility, security and performance are often linked with your choice of plugins. As your site grows, managing your plugins can become tedious and frustrating. WordPress Toolkit lets you manage all aspects of your plugins from within a single area, such as Activate/Deactivate, Install, Delete, Update and perform a search across all your plugins and across all of your websites.
As with managing your plugins, theme management is a breeze; Activate/Deactivate, Install, Delete and Update your themes directly from the web hosting control panel.

Where are Create Hosting’s servers located?
Our primary servers are located in Auckland, NZ. We also provide dedicated server options for International customers in London, Sydney, Dallas and Frankfurt.
Why should I choose Create Hosting over a cheaper option?
Create Hosting provides a specialised WordPress hosting solution, where we monitor and protect your WordPress site with many layers of security to reduce the risk of your site being hacked. We provide excellent WordPress and hosting support, and we go the extra mile to look after you as a customer.
My site is hosted elsewhere, how do I move it to Create Hosting?
We can provide free WordPress migration assistance to move your site and related services to Create Hosting. This ensures that we set your site up with all best practise security principles in place when it is moved over.
How long will it take to move my website from another hosting provider?
The migration process can take some time, depending on the ability to access your existing site and DNS records. Please allow for up to a few days to complete the migration process (downtime will only be a few minutes to perform the actual switch). We recommend leaving your hosting account active with your existing hosting company for 1-2 weeks after the migration.
How do I install WordPress on my hosting account?
You can either install WordPress using WordPress Toolkit in Plesk (1-click Option), or we can install WordPress for you and send through the access details (0-click Option). We prefer to install it for you, as we can then ensure that it is installed correctly.
My website has been hacked, can you fix it for me?
Yes, we can provide this as a service to Create Hosting WordPress customers (although we have yet to see any up-to-date WordPress sites get hacked on our network). This is usually a paid service, or we can advise you on how to clean / rebuild your site in an isolated environment.
Please note that it is a requirement to ensure that your WordPress site is kept up-to-date with all security patches and upgrades. Our system will notify you daily if any updates to plugins or themes are required, and it will automatically update WordPress to the latest version when those updates are released. You can also easily manage plugin and theme updates outside of WordPress using WordPress Toolkit (supplied with the Plesk control panel).
Can I get a dedicated IP address?
Yes, this option is available on our WP Plus plan, and is included as standard with the purchase of an SSL certificate.
Can you work with my developer to get my new website live?
Can you teach me how to use WordPress?
We primarily provide website hosting services but can provide some guidance to customers who sign up to our WordPress Support Package. If you would like to teach yourself we highly recommend these beginner tutorials at http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/courses/a-beginners-guide-to-using-wordpress.
