3. Requirements for A WordPress Website:

During the presentation we discussed the requirements for a WordPress website included:

  • WordPress Website Hosting
  • & a domain name.

You can purchase your WordPress Hosting from any reliable hosting company but for our UK audience we recommend  Siteground.

Below you can learn more about the hosting packages.  Siteground will provide you with a 50% discount on the first 12 months. 
The difference between the two is solely that Woocommerce the ecommerce plugin is preinstalled.  Otherwise the pricing is the same. It’s solely listed there for your convenience.  

Recommend Hosting:

4. Recommended Visual Builders:

We also spoke about the Visual Builders Available.  The purpose of the Visual Builders is to enable you to be able to design your pages and content the way you want them without having to code. 

 Elementor is FREE to download however the PRO version with a lot of the extra functionality that makes life easier including templates & extra widgets and blocks require an annual license.

My favourite paid Visual Builder is the Divi Builder (& Divi Theme) from Elegant Themes. I tend to find it easier in terms of being able to see the structure of the page.  You can learn more about the DIVI Visual Builder below.   

*Considering WordPress101?  I also include a free lifetime license for DIVI in my WordPress101 care packages for those considering WordPress101
