My account is, I am thinking of switching to Wordpress for my websites and wanted to use you as my hosting service. Can I add it to my existing account or do I need to open a new one specifically for my Wordpress work?

Thank you for your question JBHall!

All our Business, VPS, and Dedicated server plans can host a WordPress site. As long as you have a free database in your cPanel / MySQL databases, you can set up WordPress on your account. We looked at your specific account and you can install WordPress through Softaculous. Please see the following link on this.

If you are installing the WordPress software on your exiting site, you will need to remove the files from your domain before installing WordPress to your domain. For info on how to move files with the file manager please see the following link.

There is no need to open a new account for WordPress.
