Some of you may remember my WordPress Quickstart offering. It’s an inexpensive, performance optimized installation of self-host WordPress that takes just a few minutes to activate. I’ve enhanced it now with a broader array of pre-installed themes and plugins. The WordPress Quickstart is the fastest, easiest way to launch a new WordPress site of any kind.
This Quickstart is also performance optimized with Varnish and W3 Total Cache (W3TC) as described in my popular tutorial; with the quickstart image there’s no need to work through the tutorial step by step.
Here are some of the latest enhancements:
- Key plugins preinstalled now include all of these: Akismet, Broken Link Checker, Contact Form 7, Disqus Comment System, Duplicator, Google Analytics by Yoast, Google Authenticator, Jetpack by WordPress.com, Mailgun, Official StatCounter Plugin, VaultPress, W3 Total Cache, WordPress Importer, WordPress SEO by Yoast
- Themes preinstalled now include: MySiteMyWay’s Construct Theme ($35 license not included), Fastr, Launch Effect, Meris, Minnow, Tonal and the standard WordPress themes: TwentyFifteen, TwentyFourteen, TwentyThirteen and TwentyTwelve
If you’d prefer a managed hosting solution for WordPress, I recommend WPEngine. WPEngine offers economical, high performance managed WordPress hosting for those that don’t want to self-host.
