Do I have to use WordPress?

Only if you’re looking for a managed service. If not, then you can use one of our regular web hosting plans. While WordPress is our focus, you’re free to host using many other PHP CMSs (i.e. Drupal, Joomla, Grav) or frameworks (i.e. Laravel, Codeigniter, Symfony). You also have the option to set up Ruby, Python, and Node.js applications, but they will require a little more configuration on your part.
