The Ultimate WordPress Set-Up For 2019

The Ultimate Wordpress Set-Up

Introduction

Below is a list of the ultimate set-up for WordPress at the start of 2019. If this is all more than you want to tackle, we have created a Development Site package that includes everything on the list.   We can launch a white-label development site for you, or be an integral member of your team.

This set-up will suffice for the majority of businesses.  A large organization, or an organization that needs special functionality may require additional server-side modifications or custom code and more advanced plug-ins.  All will be compatible with this collection.

To your success!

1. Platform Set-Up

Website Address + Hosting

  • Domain Name Registered in YOUR name
  • Shared Hosting** (renting space on a server) or…
  • Dedicated Server Hosting (for faster websites)
  • SSL Certificate
  • Have your host “Set my PHP Max Input Vars to 1540”
  • Ensure that Gzip is enabled on your server
  • PHP set to allow uploads of file size 10MB

**A word about hosting.  There are many choices for hosting, and each provider has strengths and weaknesses.  It really comes down to how much support you need, how fast you want your website to be, and of course your budget.  If you are a developer launching multiple sites, your needs are also quite different.  Our recommendations are for single website customers, and are based on our own experience.

**What about GoDaddy?  Many people are familiar with the GoDaddy Brand, and are happy with their service.  This tends to be true with beginners, which may be you.  We do not recommend GoDaddy for various reasons including suspicious sales practices.
