What is Optimized WordPress?

Optimized WordPress (OWP) was a hosting platform offered by HostGator, which was specifically built for a managed WordPress environment. However, as HostGator made recent updates, the Optimized WordPress hosting plan is no longer offered to new signups. If you previously purchased the Optimized WordPress hosting package, you would find the following changes in your HostGator account.

  • You will have an updated billing display.
  • There will be individual billing for each hosting package.
  • Your OWP hosting plan was converted to a Shared Hatchling hosting package.
  • There will be free SiteLock and CodeGuard addons.
  • You will have lower prices per Shared Hatchling package. (Please note that if you update your billing cycle and/or package type, you will no longer have the special pricing and will be billed at a regular rate.)

You may ask, "Will the changes on my OWP hosting plan affect my current WordPress installation?"

Answer: Your website(s) will remain unchanged, and you can access and manage them the same way you used to. However, if you need to install a new WordPress, you may do so via Softaculous within cPanel. Yup! You now have cPanel as your OWP hosting package was converted to a Shared Hatchling package, which basically has cPanel.

You will find the following articles helpful in familiarizing yourself with the recent updates.
