A2 Optimized is a product of our team of WordPress experts who noticed a concerning trend of users loading their WordPress sites down with plugins to try and get the fastest, most secure setup possible. Unfortunately, in most instances, too many plugins can actually make a WordPress install slower and less secure. That's because each installed plugin generally slows down a WordPress site and many times these plugins are not updated often enough. Out of date plugins make WordPress sites particularly vulnerable to exploits.
This is where A2 Optimized came into play. A2 Optimized WordPress is a result of our team of optimization experts determining the most secure and highest performing setup by testing a number of configurations. Trust us, they tested a lot of WordPress configurations! At A2 Hosting, you get this pre-configured, A2 Optimized WordPress setup right out of the box when you sign up with us!
The first step in customizing your WordPress site is to log into your WordPress install. From there, you'll actually find an "Appearance" section within your WordPress dashboard dedicated to helping you customize your site. The easiest and most likely the method you'll find most effective is by using a pre-made WordPress theme. Just click the "Add New Theme" button to browse through a number of theme options. You can search for themes as well as use the Feature Filter. The Feature Filter is an excellent way to discover a theme that you like the most. This is where you can narrow down themes based on features, the type of layout you want and the subject of your site.
Once you find a theme you like, you will want to click on the selected theme and click the Install button. Once installed, navigate back to the Appearance menu, select the newly installed theme and select Activate.
Most free hosting providers incorporate advertising into their services. They might require attribution links or banner ads on user sites or send lots marketing e-mails to sell paid hosting or some other upgrade.
Limited support may actually be the biggest gamble users take with free hosting. Free WordPress hosts often time have a support forum for posting questions, but don't count on quick and helpful responses. With free hosting, support is a matter of luck, not service. Free hosting users get what they pay for.
For a few dollars a month from A2 Hosting, you get blazing fast, ad-free cheap hosting for WordPress with amazing support from our 24/7/365 Guru Crew!
The WordPress application is free. There are free themes and plugins to get started. Many startup businesses set up their websites with no expenses aside from their hosting and domain costs. Premium WordPress add-ons incur fees, some for a few dollars or a donation. Others cost hundreds of dollars annually but are mostly for advanced users. A WordPress website, like any other, consumes bandwidth and may grow over time. The more content, media, and plugins the site has, the more likely resource needs will increase. You should plan and budget accordingly for new expenses as your account grows. At first, shared hosting works well for most WordPress sites, but most users upgrade their plans when they outgrow their shared hosting accounts, especially ecommerce or business sites. A2 Hosting is where you can get high quality, affordable hosting for WordPress!
