Showit integrates very closely with WordPress, the most popular content management system on the planet. To managing hosting for this platform, we have chosen to partner with the number one platform in the industry, WPEngine. WPEngine manages security, updates and server operations for running an efficient WordPress site.

A basic blog is hosted through a WordPress "multi-site" which means that  plugin updates happen automatically and only the available shared and installed plugins may be activated. This tier is limited to 20 GB of web storage and 10k visits per month. A site that exceeds this amount of traffic would need to upgrade to the advanced tier.

An advanced blog has its own WordPress instance that can install custom plugins and have FTP and database access. The advanced blog is limited to 20GB of storage and 25k site visits per month. A site that exceeds this amount of traffic would need to upgrade to a higher platform within WPEngine. A blog hosted on WPEngine through your own account would require the "Basic Blog" Showit subscription. We would also require that a member of our support team is added as an admin on the WPEngine account to handle any issues that may arise. Pricing for this customized hosting would be handled through contacting the WP Engine sales team.

Due to the variability of WordPress hosts and the nature of the Showit and WordPress integration, Showit is not supported on other WordPress hosting platforms.
