This blog post has been written in Strange Times. This is our first week of Covid-19 confinement. Everything is different but even in these unprecedented times, the builder spirit is especially strong. In this post, we will show you the last features and changes introduced to the wetopi service.
First of all, one of the most requested features:
Free servers with infinite development period renewal.
One of our goals is to help you, as a WordPress professional, during the WordPress site build process. To do this at Wetopi we provide development servers for FREE.
Until now, to preserve the equilibrium between our limited resources and your development needs, FREE development servers had a limited period. Once ended this period you had the option to pay for a Hosting plan to continue with your development.
Now we have introduced the FREE period renewal. With a single click, you can at any time renew your development period.
To control and reduce our infrastructure growth, we still preserve the “Development Period” concept. When you do not renew your development server, then when period ends your servers stops. After this, we alert-you for a few days before your server image gets removed. This helps us to identify the abandoned servers and free up infrastructure resources.
New Direct Debit Payment Method
In addition to the Card Payment method now at wetopi, you can add SEPA direct debit payments.
Now you can have more than one payment method. When you have more than one payment method Wetopi will give priority to the SEPA and then to the latest added method. When a payment fails, wetopi waits 24h and tries with the second payment method in the list.
Wetopi WordPress server news
Forget about system upgrades.
At wetopi every WordPress runs on its own managed server. “Managed” means you can forget about system upgrades and maintenance.
And the best part is that your server gets updated without service downtimes or migration processes. When we push new server images, we can deploy the new release forcing the replacement of your server image.

In short, we are just techies passionate about WordPress. With wetopi, a specialized WordPress hosting, we want to go further to offer professionals and agencies a platform to work efficiently and effectively.
