I use the Astra Theme and Elementor plugin in the tutorial video above. Here are a few links to the Astra website.
If you are planning to build a large website with allot of images you may want to consider a premium hosting package.
WPX are a premium hosting company offering everything you will ever need to host your WordPress website.
Kinsta are a premium hosting company offering everything you will ever need to host your WordPress website.
WP engine are a premium hosting company offering everything you will ever need to host your WordPress website.
Finding the right hosting company to look after your photography website is very important.
Good customer support is very important because you will at some stage need to contact your hosting provider for help.
You also need to look at using a CDN (content delivery network). WPX have their own CDN which will really help your website download speed.
The CDN will cache your website locally around the world including your images. I would always use a CDN.
Some hosting control panels can be very difficult to use. I have used cPanel and Plesk but like the look of what WPX are doing with their control panel
We just need a simple control panel that is easy to use.
Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is used for secure communication over a computer network.
WPX give you a free Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate to make your website connection secure, which is important because Google likes websites with SSL.
Out of all the website hosting companies WPX seem to be offering the best premium hosting package at the moment.
Wordpress powers over 30% of the websites on the internet, but what is it? A short video will help you understand what WordPress is.
Using WordPress with a fast hosting company like bluehost, WPX, Kinsta or WP engine will give you the best package. Self hosting is the way to go if you want total control of WordPress.
Installing WordPress is quite easy. If you need any help I offer a website consultation service for photographers. Please use the contact form below if you need help.
