The best WordPress hosting starts with a hosting provider that knows WordPress. Sure, you could always host your website or blog with just about anyone that has a server connected to the internet, but that also means entrusting your website to those that may not have the proper setup in place to ensure continued uptime and stability. Even worse, if you try to go it alone you could end up in over your head at precisely the time that your WordPress site matters most.
That's why many brands, companies and organizations choose managed WordPress hosting. From blazing-fast performance and all the security you'll need to prevent rogue actors from getting into your site and data, the right WordPress hosting makes all the difference. It's important, too, because WordPress is so powerful. In fact, over 40 percent of the web is built on WordPress, meaning that WordPress can change and adapt to your needs, even if you have much larger plans than where your website sits today.
WordPress is one of the most extensible and widely used platforms on the web, and you need a WordPress hosting partner that knows what they're doing. Forget about trying to troubleshoot issues at 2 a.m. and hoping you get it all worked out by the time business opens tomorrow. Our WordPress plans are designed to meet the needs and demands of your website so that you can focus more on growing your audience and your business.
We're also one of the cheapest WordPress hosting solutions out there, but that doesn't mean we offer a cheap service. We provide a comprehensive WordPress hosting solution, all backed by our 24/7/365 Guru Crew. That can help make hosting on WordPress easy, and you'll also benefit from our servers that are designed to optimize the WordPress experience for both those working on your WordPress site and those using it. We'll even throw in a free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate so that you can offer the same great and secure service that people depend on.

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 Out of date plugins make WordPress sites particularly vulnerable to exploits.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!
WordPress' origins can be traced back to the beginning of 2001 when the blogging solution B2/cafelog was launched by French programmer Michael Valdrighi. B2/cafelog was an innovative solution at the time because it introduced the ability for pages to be created dynamically with a MySQL database. Valdrighi continued to work on B2/cafelog and released version 1.0 in 2002. Shortly afterward, Valdrighi stopped developing his solution. This was particularly unfortunate because B2/cafelog had actually grown its user-base to a reasonable number. These users were left without a supported solution.
In the early parts of 2003, college freshmen Matt Mullenweg wrote on his blog that he wanted to create a fork of B2/cafelog. He had been using the software to post photos from his trip to Washington D.C. He teamed with Mike Little to continue work on this new solution. This was around the same time that Valdrighi made an announcement that Little and Mullenweg would be taking lead on the B2/cafelog fork. The team launched the first version of WordPress in May 2003, using the same structure as B2/cafelog.
The WordPress team continued to grow and friends of Mullenweg like Christine Sellect Tremoulet would also contribute to the project. Tremoulet actually was the one who suggested the name "WordPress". WordPress v1.0 was released in January 2004 under the code name Davis. Some of the newest features in this release included SEO friendly permalinks, the ability to post to multiple categories, the addition of comment moderation and Atom support. A few months later in May 2004, version 1.2 was released. This was a bit of a landmark release for WordPress because support for plugins was added in this version. Plugins have played a huge part in helping WordPress grow to the levels it has today because of their ability to add just about any functionality you could want to a site.
