WordPress Web Design

My business is WordPress Web Design. I work with clients. Together we develop a WordPress Web Design.

I want to help clients promote their business or organisation.
To attract visitors to their site.
My services include design, set up, training and hosting. The initial basic SEO is part of what I provide.

Website Information Document

Forms in general are nobodies favorite thing, however they do represent a way of quickly assembling ideas and information. The form here, is not compulsory, however I have found that it does have the capacity to speed the process of building a website. (OK – yes I do know that it needs updating and that will happen soon enough.

Speed

Many Factors govern the speed of delivery of the landing page to the browser. These Include

  • content
  • behind the scenes code and scripts.
  • speed of database query execution.
  • speed of the network on the web-server 
  • speed of the CPU on the server,
  • capacity of the server to handle bandwidth.

Many of the factors come down to the web host.

Cost

In the end you only have hearsay until you bite the bullet, open an account and check out what really happens. I have been using Crazy Domains for most of my WordPress sites, though for clients who already had sites I have used, MelbourneIT, and HostGator. MelbourneIT is clearly the most expensive of these options and clearly performed on par if not a shade under Crazy Domains and HostGator. In fact HostGator was marginally the best of the three. Currently I am using A2.

Hosting

So with some experience I started off on the search for something better and I suspect there are many better, and there are some bigger costs around as well, and numbers like $29-$99 dollars a month are certainly around. Ultimately I concluded that was not what many of my clients would want to pay, though I think there is the odd one around who would. I have used A2 Web Hosting for a number of years, They have been clean, consistent and easy to deal with.
