I am developing a self-hosted WordPress site for the account with the primary domain We will be purchasing a new domain name and I will do the WordPress install using your supplied script under this new domain / directory.

I just want to make sure that this account does not have any limitations that would effect the development of this site.

Hello Azbarley,

Thanks for the question. InMotion Hosting hosts many WordPress accounts, so there are no issues in doing so with your hosting account. Bear in mind that if you are changing creating a WordPress site, the installation is typically based on the URL that you use to install it. WordPress generates links for the pages that you later add to the site. If you are developing the site with a different URL, then you will need to take the extra step of changing the URL after you have completed development. You can also use the documentation directly from WordPress on this topic: Changing the Site URL for WordPress.

I hope this clears up your question! Please let us know if you have any further questions or comments.

Thanks for your quick reply. I read your FAQ on SSL's and I just want to confirm; if we choose to use a shared SSL, is there a charge for this?

Hello Azbarley,

There is no charge for using a Shared SSL. However, a shared SSL does NOT use your domain name. It uses the serve name - as per the shared SSL documentation.

If you still need assistance, please let us know.
