My Recommendation for a Good Webhost for running your WordPress Site



My Experience of Setting up this Site:

About 9 Months ago after a couple of false starts trying to get a blog/website going, I stumbled upon an article talking about using the WordPress Platform for the job. The article described how widely used WordPress was across the web and listed 3 highly rated WordPress Hosts that were setup specifically to cater for first time WordPress users. I had a poke around and chose the option that seemed the simplest, as I knew my enthusiasm for the job would quickly fade if I hit layers of admin to get up and running.

Finding SiteGround

So the provider I chose was SiteGround, and as I mentioned above, the main reason I chose them was the uncluttered look of their site. I have realized that when dealing with tech things I prefer straight forward simplicity and timely feedback to almost anything else. I was amazed at how responsive the service was, once I started the sign up process. I ticked a couple of boxes, chose a name for my site and then was given a message saying I would be notified when my site was ready to go. A few minutes later I received another email with further instructions. After ticking a few more boxes filling , making a credit card payment and clicking a few more links,  I was ready to roll .

Straight after that I fired off a new email, asking how to start learning about WordPress , with the intention of installing my own theme. Within minutes I had a detailed response and was able to make the changes to the site I desired. This process had continued over time with emails about things like plugins and widgets. Each time I received useful and timely responses. Compared to my expectations, the process of running this site has been far less stressful than I expected and as a result I  have spent the majority of my time, writing content for the site.

For anyone who is looking to venture in the world of Blogs/Websites I would highly recommend SiteGround, based on their customer service, simplicity of design and reasonable pricing.

Full Disclosure: If you do choose to signup to use any of their services, please make use of any of affiliate links below or above, so that a small contribution is made to the up keep of this site. Thanks


The start of my journey to learn isiXhosa


Xhosa language (Wikipedia)

Xhosa (English: /ˈkɔːsə/ or /ˈkoʊsə/;[6][7][8] Xhosa: isiXhosa [isikǁʰɔ́ːsa]) is a Nguni Bantu language with click consonants (“Xhosa” begins with a click) and one of the official languages of South Africa.[9] It is spoken by approximately 7.6 million people, or about 18% of the South African population. Like most other Bantu languages, Xhosa is a tonal language;[10] the same sequence of consonants and vowels can have different meanings, depending on intonation. Xhosa has two tones: high and low.[11]

Xhosa is written with the Latin alphabet. Three letters are used to indicate the basic clicks: c for dental clicks, x for lateral clicks and q for post-alveolar clicks (for a more detailed explanation, see the table of consonant phonemes below). Tones are not normally indicated in writing.
