Web hosts with One Click WordPressJuly 6, 2017 • Recommendations
One of the biggest questions that goes around the blogosphere is “how do I go self-hosted?” One Click WordPress to the rescue!
While it used to be tricky to set up hosting and WordPress manually without much tech experience, in recent years many hosts offer packages targeted to the average user. These packages generally come with just the amount of space you will need for a blog, as well as the option to install WordPress with one click.
This makes it really easy to get a blog up and running. After that, you just need to import your archives from your former platform (or start fresh!) and import your theme.
Below is a list of web hosts that offer One Click WordPress!
Lyrical Host: Our number one recommendation for WordPress hosting is Lyrical Host. This is a fabulous company, specialising in easy-to-use hosting that’s beautifully crafted. In addition to providing an out-of-the-box WordPress solution, the team at Lyrical Host will migrate your current WordPress site for free. They also give their customers freebies each month, such as stock photography, icon packs, and tips and tricks. (I’m currently in the process of grabbing a discount code for Lyrical Host, so keep an eye out for that! Alternatively, Lyrical Host customers get 10% off their first project with Pretty Content.)
1&1 Internet*: 1&1 include an SSL certificate in their managed WordPress hosting for extra security, and have 24/7 support.
TSOHost*: TSO provides a variety of plans including one that costs as low as £15 per year. Plus you can get 10% off with the code ‘PRETTYCONTENT.’
