Frequently Asked Questions

There are a lot of features. Do I have to use them all?
No, you don't. You can easily disable/hide the features you don't need. If you just want to run a forum, disable all of the other modules. If you just want a blog, disable everything but the blog, etc.
Can I run my site on my own domain?
Yes, nearly all of our customers use their own domain or subdomain. Setting that up is simple. Just follow the instructions in the Custom Domain Guide, which you'll find in your site control panel.
Can you import my data from my existing site?
Most likely, yes. Just tell us what platform you are using and we'll give you a quote. Most of the time this will be a very affordable, flat rate. Tell us what you need on our support site.
If I want to leave, can I export my data?
Yes, you can. We include a built in member export function. If you want to export your content too, it's a manual process right now (you'll need to send us a request at ).
What kind of support do you offer?
For all customers, we offer AWESOME online support via our Support Community. Most people are amazed by the level of support we provide. Pro customers also have access to an account manager and an emergency hotline. No matter how you reach us, you'll find that our commitment to customer support is second to none.
Can you help set up my site for me?
Yes, we will! With our "Right Start" service, which is included at no additional cost for new accounts, we will assist you with the set up of your site, based on your requirements. We'll configure your control panel settings and customize your theme, if you want, based on your instructions. Graphic design is not included.
Is there a long term commitment?
Standard plans can be canceled anytime with 30 days' notice, while Pro plans require a one-year commitment.
Is Hoop.la English-only?
No, it is not! It can support any language. If you have questions, drop us a line on our support site.
Can I add my own features to Hoop.la?
Pro customers have the ability to add application-level customizations. All customization requests are subject to approval. A customization quote will be provided.
Do I need any technical knowledge to use Hoop.la?
Absolutely none. No software to install, no servers to maintain. No coding required to change your themes.
How do premium memberships work?
Making money through premium memberships is simple. Decide what you want to charge for. Some sites focus on premium content- admins can mark any piece of content as premium and reserve it just for premium members. Or you may also reserve certain features for paying customers. You set your own fee and we handle both collection of the money and the instant/automatic activating and disabling of premium accounts as they are paid for or expire. There are no setup fees and no merchant account required. You keep 75% of all premium membership revenue.
Can my users sign in using their credentials from other social networks?
Yes, they can, if you want them to be able to. You choose which of the supported social networks you want to enable, including Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube, Yahoo, and Foursquare. If you enable these, members will be able to sign in directly on your site or using their credentials from these other social networks. This option is available for all plans.
