StudioPress Sites Hosting

Hi, Today I thought I’d mention Building your own WordPress website.

Is it Easy? Can I do it?

I remember when I had my own first website – many, many – maybe too many – years ago. Then I paid quite a considerable amount for someone to build and host my first website. It took a couple of weeks – I was not really consulted – and looking back it was crap I mean not very good. So late I went to night school to learn how to build a website and a little basic Html coding.  Within 6 months I’d built a website I was proud of. Today you don’t need to learn to code thanks to the universal “WordPress”; a free and open-sourcecontent management system.   Plus the costs of owning and running a website are so very much cheaper.

I have been using the services of StudioPress for many years.

StudioPress – they provide WordPress Themes (inc the Genesis Framework) and Plugins (including Backup Buddy and iThemes Security). These I use myself and have been a very happy customer. They also provide other advanced services, which I won’t go into here. Needless to say, they are reliable, established and recognized leaders in their fields.

Now they are providing an all inclusive package including hosting “WordPress Made Fast and Easy” –  in six steps you go from purchaser to publisher – You Get….

The dark side of web hosting recommendations

Why So Many Bloggers Recommend Bluehost or Hostgator Hosting

(And Why I Don’t)  web-hosting – by David Risley (

By David Risley on February 13th, 2017
This post is not going to be your typical Bluehost or Hostgator loving post.

There are a lot of bloggers doing that. You know several of them if you’ve been around much. Some of the guys doing it have big names you may have heard of.

And they may do it with completely honest intentions. Or… it could be because of the fairly sweet affiliate commissions. You just don’t know.

But, many months back, I had to make an executive decision.

Continue to recommend the hosting company who paid me the highest commission? Or switch it up and recommend the people who I think are truly better.

Well, after I got hacked on Bluehost, I chose the latter.

My commissions aren’t as high, but I can sleep better knowing I’m serving my readers better.

So, let’s do some real talk here…
