So a few weeks ago, I was trying to find a way to optimize my WordPress website because I felt it wasn’t loading fast enough. I went online and found some plugins to help me achieve my aim, some I got for free and some I paid for, but to my surprise none of them seemed to work, it is as if some unseen forces are slowing down my website. Then after much research I got to know that my hosting server too may be contributing to the issue I’m facing. While trying to find a faster and affordable hosting service, a friend told me to check out A2 Hosting, reluctantly, I visited the website and I’m very glad I did.
I was looking for common hosting plans, and then I found a plan exclusive to WordPress; Managed WordPress Hosting. Wow! I was amazed at the features; so many for its price. My thought was maybe all the features are just there for advertisement, but I confirmed after importing my website. Now my web pages can be accessed at the speed of light. Let me share some of the benefits I’ve been deriving because I purchased Managed WordPress hosting plan at A2 Hosting.
The first thing that amazed me was the speed. My web page that usually took minutes to load is now loading in under a minute. I get free automatic daily backup – a task that I had to do manually on the previous hosting server. I also met WordPress pre-installed, so I only had to import via Tools → Import option and it was quite easy and fast; done in less than 30 minutes. I get updates about the latest patches and WordPress version, also suggestions of plugins that can enhance my blogging skills.
I received a free JetPack Personal License, which im sure experienced WordPress users should know about. Though I’ve already migrated my website by myself before I saw that I could actually get it done for me free of charge. This is a feature many people facing the same issue like me would find really useful. I was introduced to WP-CLI (Command Line WordPress Interface) earlier but couldn’t get it to work on my previous server, you can’t even imagine how excited I was to find it pre-installed, now I can just perform tasks from the command line anytime I feel like doing so.
All I can say is that A2 Hosting Managed WordPress Hosting has all it required to run WordPress websites efficiently. Though I purchased the basic 1-site plan which goes for a minimum of $12.97USD per month, there are two more plans suitable for people running multiple WordPress websites; 3-sites starting at $19.48 monthly and Unlimited starting at $37.97USD monthly.
A2 Hosting’s Managed Hosting works perfectly for me as I have fewer maintenance tasks to perform, thus, I have more time to focus on creating content for my blog. My blog’s SEO has improved a lot since I migrated. Every day I find out about more and more features, which makes me wonder why I haven’t found this kind of hosting plan earlier. An online version of WordPress for Dummies is also available on multiple tech sites to help average users build a site from scratch.
