In case you didn’t know, a theme is required for every single WordPress site. A theme is essentially the design of your website. While you can create a theme from scratch, this is definitely not necessary in today’s web world. There are thousands of themes to choose from and you can customize every single one of those themes. 

Our favorite theme in the world is Astra Theme paired with Elementor Plugin! Together, they make your site incredibly powerful, flexible, and easy to use. It is also packed with a visual builder so it’s perfect for the non-tech savvy folks. Experienced users also love it because it is a smart, well-developed theme that was built by trusted developers who update it often. In other words, it’s incredibly reliable and trusted by many.

Keep in mind Astra + Elementor is not a requirement for this tutorial! We have experience with all kinds of themes and plugins so we can most likely help – no matter what theme you are using.

Every website on the world wide web needs to have space on a server so it can be presented to the world. There are a lot of hosting companies out there and in case you can’t tell which one is perfect for you, we can help. We’ve done all the ground work for you and we’ve found the best hosting company for you to use.

NOTE: We highly recommend Cloudways Hosting for your WordPress site needs. Throughout the years, we have tried all the major shared hosting companies you can think of: Siteground, Bluehost, Hostgator, Godaddy, Inmotion, and the list goes on… Do you know what the major recurring problem we keep seeing with these hosting companies? Sites on these hosts are SLOW. Cloudways is different. Choose either DigitalOcean, Linode, or Vultr on Cloudways and get your site on a VPS (Virtual Private Server), which is different than shared hosting. Want to learn more? Contact us and we’ll guide you the whole way. You shouldn’t have to stress about finding the best host for your website – we did all the hard work for you.
