Web security should never be overlooked. Whatever your industry, no matter how small, someone is always trying to break in. At Starwheel we take security very seriously.
You could lose time and money with an online store. Or give access to private documents and information. Once they’re in, it’s hard to get them out, because they come back. We’ve battled these hacker bots for years. As a website host, we take every preventative measure possible to ensure protection. In the rare case your site is hacked, we have strict post-hack protocols that we follow. No sites we’ve hosted have ever been hacked.

Frequent Hosting Questions
Do you have a monthly unlimited changes plan?
Yes! Starwheel web hosting can be on a monthly retainer which includes hosting and unlimited changes. Call us today and we can work out an agreement. Your requests take the highest priority. You can call, email, or text, 7 days a week. Consider it done right away. We appreciate your business and aim to keep you an elite customer. This option is billed monthly with no commitments.
How does web hosting work?
You have a domain like www.mrplumber.com. That domain is purchased from a registrar. You can keep the domain pointed where it is or you can point it at another server. Wherever you pointed the domain will determine where the records are managed. Most of our clients point their domain at our server and we manage all records including emails and the website files. However, some clients don’t point the domain at our server and instead adjust the records so that the mail record (MX record) goes to a mail server like GSuite and the files record (A record) goes to our server. The server has the files and database that make the website work.
How do you make WordPress fast?
Here are some of our tricks: All of the images are not loaded until you scroll to them. All the code is compressed and files combined. We remove plugins unless they’re actually needed. And most important, the server itself is very fast. By using 3 layers of caching on the server, we can make a full-featured fancy website behave like a minimal one. Many of the other details and tricks are too techy to mention. Just check out the results!
Do you offer email?
The average hosted client can have 5 branded emails with ample storage space. We’ll create the email accounts for you and come up with a good password. Accessing the emails on your computer or smart device is a pretty easy process. Alternatively, you can have your emails on another server and we’ll host everything else. We would recommend this to all legal and medical professionals seeking branded emails. We’ll find a web hosting plan that works for you and addresses your email needs.
Can I host the website myself?
Yes, you can. All sites we develop can be hosted anywhere by anyone. But wouldn’t you rather focus on growing your business? There is a learning curve to maintaining a website and generally, the worry and hassle aren’t worth it. Purchasing good hosting yourself is similar to our pricing. Ditch the stress! Have us keep everything up to date, secure, and fast.
How do hackers hack WordPress websites?
Generally, hackers send out bots that skim the web looking for “low hanging fruit”. Websites that are out of date or have made some careless mistakes, are exposing vulnerabilities. Those are exploited and hackers can gain control. You don’t want to be hacked because they often come back once a door is opened. As your web host, we both prevent and remove malware. Have our experienced web hosting company keep your site secure.
Why would a hacker hack me?
The main reason that hackers hack is to make money. It’s usually a script that they run looking for poorly set up websites with entry points. We will do whatever we can to deflect their efforts. They usually redirect your website to an online store, put in a backlink to one of their clients, or have an affiliate link for something like Viagra. It’s nothing personal or political.
Can I buy a speed and security boost à la carte?
Speed and security upgrades can be purchased separately. Regardless of where you are hosting your website, we can get you better results. This is a great option for people who are happy with their web hosting but had a web developer not address website speed and security. Remember that both are included free in Starwheel web hosting, so you might consider making the switch.
Do you offer an SSL certificate?
Yes, it is very important that all sites since January of 2017 be https:// SSL protected. With all of our hosting plans, you get a free SSL. We’ll make sure that everything is secure and using https.
How much does website hosting cost?
Hosting ranges from $25 to $300 a month depending on what features you want, the nature of your website, the traffic, the number of emails you want, and many other factors. Give us a call and we’ll find a website hosting solution that works for your needs and budget.
