Is WP Pro the right plan for me?
Absolutely. No matter if you are brand new to WordPress or an experienced WordPress aficionado, WP Pro has everything you need to build and grow a professional WordPress website.
What are the top features of WP Pro?
There are several useful features, including:
- Marketing Center
Manage your SEO, Social Media, and Email traffic channels all in one dashboard. Monitor the performance of your website and marketing efforts from the same dashboard.
- Detailed Analytics
Monitor your website traffic performance on a daily, weekly, or yearly basis. Already use Google Analytics? You can easily integrate your existing Google Analytics account into the Marketing Center to view your traffic channels.
- Improved Site Speed
All WP Pro servers are built with Solid State Drives (SSDs) meaning your website outperforms websites hosted on traditional HDD servers. We do not oversubscribe the number of users on these servers, meaning more of the server's resources are available to you when you need it. With WP Pro, you can enjoy the fastest WordPress hosting available.
- Fully Managed
Managed WordPress hosting like WordPress Pro means you enjoy automatic updates to your WordPress install as well as automatic updates to the server environment so that your website is always on the fastest and most stable technology stack available.
Is WP Pro Managed?
Our WP Pro platform is a fully-managed WordPress hosting environment, which means you can stay focused on building your website with content that is unique to you while we handle the daily maintenance of your server and the applications that keeps your website running strong.
What is included in the 1-Hour Concierge Call?
You will work directly with a trained WordPress expert to help you navigate both the Bluehost and WordPress admin control panel. They will also assist you in selecting the right themes and plugins for your website needs. Lastly, if you are new to WordPress, the WordPress expert will also teach you how to create and edit pages on your website.
Does Google Analytics work with WP Pro?
Yes. If you already have a Google Analytics account, you can simply enter your account key next to the traffic dashboard to link the accounts and start viewing your traffic data from a single dashboard.
Can I host multiple websites on WP Pro?
Yes. WP Pro allows you to host multiple WordPress websites on a single account. However, only the primary website on your account will have access to all of the analytics and advanced tooling that comes with a WP Pro subscription. In order to leverage all the power of WP Pro for additional websites, you will need to purchase additional Jetpack licenses from within the Bluehost dashboard. Each license can be applied to a new website and will allow for analytics and advanced tooling to be used across multiple websites on a single account.
What is Jetpack?
Jetpack is a feature-rich toolkit designed specifically for WordPress websites. Depending on the Jetpack package you choose to leverage alongside your WordPress website, you gain access to tools like website analytics, image CDN, malware protection, website data backups, PayPal integration, video CDN, and more.
