Manage your self-hosted WordPress blog or website on the go, using your iOS or Android device and your Ecenica WordPress Hosting.
Today we outline how to publish content from the free WordPress App, to a WordPress website hosted on an Ecenica WordPress Hosting account. As we’re big fans of the Apple iPhone we do focus on the WordPress App for iOS. However, the good news is the app is also available for Android and shares the same features as its iOS sister app.
Once connected you’ll be able to manage your WordPress blog or website anytime, anywhere from your iOS device: view your stats, moderate comments, create and edit posts and pages, and upload media directly from your phone. You can even use your iPhone camera to upload photos and videos straight to your WordPress site hosted on Ecenica.
All you need is a self-hosted WordPress site running 3.6 or higher and an Ecenica web hosting plan, preferably one of our optimised WordPress Hosting plans.
Why connect your Ecenica Hosted WordPress site to your WordPress App
- Free to install and use.
