Hosting

We don’t host sites at FDC, we recommend and help you take charge of your own hosting. Why? Because it’s better you control your website, not someone else!

Why we recommend Flywheel Managed Hosting!

When we refer to Flywheel as managed WordPress hosting, we’re talking about a number of things that make hosting at Flywheel stand out from generic shared hosting companies.

What is Managed WordPress Hosting?

Due to the popularity of WordPress, several web hosting providers have chosen to specialise in WordPress and offer what’s known as managed WordPress hosting.

Considered a concierge service where all technical aspects of running WordPress is managed by the host. This includes security, speed, WordPress updates, daily backups, website uptime, and scalability.

The idea behind managed WordPress hosting is to offer a completely hassle-free experience, so you can focus on running your business.

The Trouble With Shared Hosting

There are a number of issues with shared hosting, most of which stem from its business model. Although the accounts are cheap, they’re cheap because hundreds (sometimes thousands) of users are put on the same server.

This is the most basic hosting option, up to 2,500 websites on one server. You may also share IP addresses with other websites (potentially spammy ones).

So! What’s so great about Flywheel?

All they do is WordPress!

Because Flywheel specializes in WordPress, their servers are specifically calibrated to make your site blazing fast. They also make sure each site has dedicated resources to meet the needs of even the most demanding sites. No more customer complaints about lack of speed.

We trust Flywheel

All our sites at FDC, like Fabulous Norfolk and Norfolk Theatre & Arts are hosted on Flywheel. Many of our clients also have their sites hosted with Flywheel.

Need some help?

We believe you should be hosting your own website. Many agencies host for you and charge much more than they should, you’re then tied to them, their conditions and prices.

We haven’t worked this way for years, we have always preferred you take control and payment of your hosting. Your site is much safer this way. Flywheel makes this a breeze.
