No matter what…
You don’t want nor do you like slow websites. Neither do your visitors.
If your site is slow, your visitors will just find another site to buy from or get their information from. That’s why you want your site to be hosted on an exclusive Swift Server platform.
The bottom line is using a reputable BUT noiseless startup which is A2Hosting.com. They’re faster than the competition – noises you hear…
After a deep comparison of Bluehost, SiteGround and A2 hosting, it turns out that A2 does not have any hidden agenda which we saw how fair they are.
In the aura of going for Bluehost and A2, I made a complete guide on Bluehost here, and I just wanted to round this up by showing you how to set up your website with WordPress using a2 hosting a2 hosting (some readers recommended I do more on this).
Again, I listed out the website tools that I use on this website, so, if you want the insight, here is a total guide on the Top 35 WordPress Website Project Tools Which Gives Me 500% Success.
Coming back, as a die-hard of A2 which turns out is one of the best web hosting companies we’ve got outside the EIG (Bluehost owners), we will be using it to build our crypto or personal website in a few minute from now.
And just to remind us, A2 Hosting has;
• A 20X speed through the systematic framework they use,
• Any time money back guarantee,
• Good customer support,
• Positive Uptime,
• Discount up to 51%,
• An easy user interface,
• Offers you an Unlimited DISK Space and an Unlimited Bandwidth
• A lesser fee : One Time Discount, and more.
The only reason you might look Bluehost the second time is the Free Domain which I think, that shouldn’t lure you though. I paid for my domain name which I think was a great deal.
Trust me. I have used the hosting companies recommended by most Internet Marketers Bloggers and those they say it’s 5/5 by rating.
But from our data analytics/case study we did, the picture wasn’t as painted.
What You Need to Get Started
All what you need to get started are two things. A domain name and a hosting account.
Domain name: this is what your brand will be known as; for an example, iwillteachucrypto.com is a domain name. So, you’ve got to craft yours.
Hosting Account: this is a platform you will build your website on – it is like a foundation.
With the above being said, although we have reviewed A2, so that you may know…
A2 Hosting is completely an independently owned company meaning they are in complete control of all of their hosting servers, which is a positive consideration when you consider it to the monopoly of hosting providers like Bluehost and more.
And as I stated above, A2 hosting is known for their many options hosting features, 20x speed, and the most important, customer support attention.
I will take you through a simplified step in order to show you how to sign up with A2 Hosting, and also get you started through the installation process using WordPress.
And lastly, I will show you how to start writing your first content right away. Yes, I will do all those.
Why will I do all those?
I want your success and I love what I am doing that is why I always go into every detail that might help you 100%.
