WordPress Tech Stack For Small Business

Siteground. They cost a bit more, but you will have a more powerful website that loads quickly and allows you to do whatever you want – without charging you for each little thing (such as extra email accounts). They also have very helpful customer service and will help you learn the back end as you go. 

I use the Growbig plan to host all of my wordpress sites. If wordpress seems scary to you. Don’t worry, it’s easy. Siteground has  the Softaculous Installation Tool that does a great job of setting up your site. Once it is set up, use the Astra Theme and set up a Astra Child Theme. Then use the the awesome site builder plugin, Elementor. You will probably also want Duplicator for migrating your site and saving backups and templates. Yoast SEO to make your site google friendly. RocketWP makes your site load super fast. Cloudflare is included with Siteground, but if you want extra domains for future projects, I recommend buying them from Cloudflare because they have their own Content Delivery Network (CDN) and they sell domains at wholesale prices. Be sure to get the whois privacy turned on right away, or you will be dealing with spam calls for the rest of your days.

WordPress 101 is a great resource for learning all of the ins and outs of wordpress and they offer online classes that are very much worth the price. 

This might seem like a lot, but its getting so easy these days to start a website, for an entrepreneur – being able to set up a website quickly for a smoke-test at the least, is critical.
