Lightning Fast Speeds
XOOPS is a highly regarded Content Management System within the open source scene. To clarify the name, XOOPS stands for eXtensible Object Oriented Portal System – a CMS that is built on the ever popular combination of PHP and MySQL database.
As a CMS, it can be used for a wide range of sites from small to large, blog sites to a fully managed corporate site. To experience the added benefits, as with any popular CMS, is through the ability to extend through plugins or, in this case, modules.
All XOOPS hosting plans are on lightning-fast servers based in the UK,
and come with best in-class support
Our servers are in a tier IV data center in the midlands (tier IV is the fastest tier)
Extending Your Site
There are a multitude of modules that are not just limited to blog sites. Initially XOOPS can be used as a small blog site, though it can scale to a news site or forum, or even an enterprise level site such as eCommerce.
XOOPS comes preloaded with a wide range of core modules to get you started, though you can download additional add-ons via the admin area’s Modules section. These files are usually compressed files that can be downloaded, uncompressed then reuploaded accordingly.
Similar to extending your site through modules, you can also customise the appearance of your site. XOOPS uses the Smarty template engine – web templates written in PHP. Thankfully, if you are not so savvy with creating your own custom template directly with PHP, there is an abundance of user created templates available either free or at a premium on the marketplace.

What is shared hosting?
With this type of hosting, there are more than one websites using a server and its resources. Often, each user will have a certain amount of resources allocated to them, but this can also be impacted by the use of the other sites in the server.
In general, shared hosting is a great option for people and sites that are just starting out. The maintenance and important tasks are all taken care of by us. You can concentrate on making your website the best it can be.
Do I have to know lots of technical information?
The short answer to this question is: no. We have a great customer support team who can help you through this process, from deciding what is the best option for you, all the way up to troubleshooting issues you might be having.
Obviously having some technical knowledge will help you out, but it’s by no means a necessity.
Do I need a domain name?
With Hosting.co.uk, you can continue to use your current domain name and website design and simply buy a web hosting plan to suit your requirements. Equally, if you don’t yet have one, you can register a new domain through us.
If you need a new domain name, this guide to choosing the right domain name might help.
What are the benefits of shared hosting?
There are multiple upsides to this format. The first is the cost savings, this is the most economical model. The second is the ease with which this form can be upgraded to a larger package. Thirdly, you will not need any technical knowledge.
Are there any negatives?
There are some points to consider if you are looking at this package. If load speed is vital, VPS and dedicated packages will be able to provide a faster service. Secondly, there is the potential that other users of the server can impact on your sites performance. Alongside that, if your traffic levels increase, there could also be a decrease in the performance of your site. Lastly, there is not much potential to customise the server towards your own particular needs.
