WP Whoosh

Build new feature-rich, fast and secure WordPress sites in a smarter way in under 60 seconds using WP Whoosh.

  • A professional WordPress site with a few clicks. Is it free? No, it is not free, but it is very low cost given the time saved, and the performance and security of the installed site. The cost varies between the cost of a coffee and the cost of meal depending on the WP Whoosh template you choose and which package you buy. See http://www.wpwhoosh.com/pricing/

  • Will it work for my host? If your host has a standard cPanel then yes it will. The notable exceptions are 1&1 and Godaddy which have non-standard cPanels. For a list of hosts, see http://www.wpwhoosh.com/compatibility/

  • How does it work? Using the WP Whoosh plugin, you specify the URL of the site you want to build, which template to the use and on which host you want to build the site. The plugin sends this request to our Whoosh server which builds your site on your chosen host in around a minute.

  • Why do I need and API Key? The API key is required so our Whoosh server can identify you. It is our Whoosh server that does all the heavy lifting which is to add the domain/subdomain to your host, then build and verify the site with all the required security and performance settings.

  • What is a WP Whoosh Template? A Whoosh Template is an easy, fast and secure installation of WordPress with a specific theme, set of plugins, pages and configuration of widgets. The templates vary from the simple with a few pages, to those that are more involved that say include a membership site with a twelve week course of drip fed content. The idea is the same for any template: all you need to do is add your own content - your logo, your articles, your images and your videos.

  • How are my host login details kept secure during the installation? All login information is transmitted over HTTPS and is not stored on our servers: it is held in memory only for the duration of the installation which is typically a minute.

  • How are my host login details kept secure between installations? Host details are encrypted by your PIN so remain obscured even to an administrator of your WordPress site. You can of course simply delete the host details if they are no longer required.

  • Is WP Whoosh a type of Multi-site WordPress? No, each site you build using WP Whoosh uses a separate, standalone installation of WordPress, and the sites you build can be on different hosts and use different templates.

  • Can I use Whoosh to tune up security and performance on existing sites? No, not right now - but this is a feature we intend to add in the next couple of months.

  • Can I create my own templates? Not just yet. The capability to build sites using your own templates, either for your personal use, for your private members, or to sell publicly using WP Whoosh, is part of the Whoosh design framework. We will be rolling out this feature later in 2013.
