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. Thats 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 Out of date plugins make WordPress sites particularly vulnerable to exploits.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 themost secure and highest performing setupby testing a number of configurations. Trust us, they tested a lot of WordPress configurations! At A2 Hosting, you get thispre-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, youll actually find an Appearance section within your WordPress dashboard dedicated to helping you customize your site. The easiest and most likely the method youll 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 dont 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.

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 theirhosting 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.

WordPress is a free and open-source CMS with plugin architecture and a system of templates. WordPress, like many CMS competitors, is template-based. The user chooses a theme, customizes it to personal preferences, and the website is ready to go. With many plug-ins and add-ons available, WordPress can create any site imaginable. This versatile software creates commercial, social media, blogs, and special interest websites around the world.
Websites with content management systems (CMSs) are popular with small businesses that value versatility and appreciate simplicity. Examples of these CMS solutions areGhostJoomlaandDrupal. Another CMS that happens to be oneof the simplest and most versatile applications just so happens to beWordPress.
WordPress is free so there are no additional monthly hosting costs except for custom themes, premium plug-ins, and so on, though any additional plug-ins or add-ons consume utility resources. For big photo galleries, shared media files, or large databases users should plan their budgets accordingly.The WordPressapplication is a free download or it can come pre-installed fromA2 Hosting (we also offer an easy 1-click setup via Softaculous if you prefer). With the latter method, the basic framework of a new WordPress site can be running in a few minutes. Manually downloaded installations can more intricate but a web administrator should be able to get your WordPress site up fairly quickly.
As the most used CMS in existence today, WordPress obviously comes loaded with a ton of advantages.
Users dont need much technical knowledge or expertise. WordPress offers search engine optimization-friendly uniform resource locators, resource description framework site summary feeds, post categories, sticky pages, and an interface suitable for nontechnical writers who want to contribute to the content and to queue, schedule, moderate, and protect posts and pages with passwords.
Because WordPress uses templates, edits are quick and easy. The vast template library offers thousands of layout options and variations, and WordPress accommodates no end of adjustments, customizations, and tweaks. With only basic coding knowledge, users can adapt and modify themes for whatever they need.
The WordPress plugin repository provides additional features that can enhance WordPress functionality. Most WordPress websites have at least a few plugins, and some have dozens that users can enable or disable as they wish.
Here are just a few youll experience on this platform:
Most important WordPress components are 100% free providing an affordable experience
Easy to use control panel means an intuitive experience
1-click setup means WordPress iseasy to install and get started
WordPress isSEO ready meaning youll get to benefit fromfree traffic from search engines
High availability of free, attractive themes allows you to customize the appearance of your site quickly
Easily extend your WordPress install with a wide select of plugins. You can add a lot of functionality to your site ranging from a forum to a full-fledged eCommerce solution.
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.
