Guides and How-to articles for modern web hosting control panel management and most popular web apps
Web Hosting Help Articles
The web750 support team has written a series of articles on questions asked the most by our hosting customers over the years. We have covered significant areas like cPanel and PLESK control panels, VDS and Dedicated Hosting configurations, customizations, and guides for "advanced users" who like to have maximum control over their website operations and settings.
Also, we spent many hours preparing essential guides for today's most popular web apps like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, PhpBB, Magento, and many others. Those include common mistakes, necessary setup steps, and a proactive approach to security.
The library of our help articles is expanding over time, and we are adding/rewriting some of them to reflect the latest versions and technological changes as our time allows us to do so.
Anyone using technologies described in the articles below, feel free to obtain knowledge; however, if you plan to republish any information, we kindly ask you to put web750 as the author and link back to the original article on our website.
We're always interested in our hosting customer feedback and accepting requests for new help articles. If you want us to produce the self-help guide for the specific subject of hosting account operations or the popular web app, email us at [email protected]
