ANN ARBOR, MI – A2 Hosting, a committed provider of high-performance shared hosting, WordPress Hosting, and more, today announced that its A2 Optimized Plugin will be compatible with WordPress 5.

WordPress 5 first entered beta in October, and is slated for a full release in the very near future, WordPress 5 features a complete redesign and reimagining of the WordPress Editor. The update also includes improvements to the WordPress Rest API, enhancements to the custom theme and page building experience, and an overall more intuitive experience.

To that end, it’s designed to automatically configure W3 Total Cache, optimizing your website with minimal effort on your part. These tools and utilities will assist A2’s clients in building the best website possible, allowing them to focus on content and branding rather than optimization.

The plugin is offered free of charge, with additional features available to A2 Hosting customers.

“At A2 Hosting, we always strive to offer the best experience imaginable for our clients,” explains Brad Litwin, Marketing Manager at A2 Hosting. “To that end, our shared environment meets WordPress’s recommended hosting environment by default, and we offer a comprehensive set of Managed WordPress hosting solutions.

About WordPress
WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day. WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through the use of thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes. WordPress is limited only by your imagination.

Siauliai, Lithuania – Ever since we opened our first data center in 2005, our ambition has been to become a key global player in the Virtual Private Server (VPS) market. With thousands of satisfied customers in over 70 countries, we’ve been able to realize our ambition and establish ourselves as a go-to provider of reliable web hosting services in Lithuania and beyond.

Now, we’re bringing two of our most popular services to the United States: Linux KVM NVMe and Windows KVM NVMe VPS hosting.


VPS hosting has been growing in popularity because it gives customers complete control over their environment, allowing them to tweak it precisely for their needs. As our customers would happily attest, VPS hosting provides increased stability and reliability over shared hosting, and it brings significant cost savings when compared with in-house hosting.

Customers that choose VPS hosting can pay only for what they really need and instantly scale their resources based on current demand. Adding more memory or purchasing additional processing power is a matter of a simple click, making VPS hosting ideal for agile startups that can go from a thousand users to millions in a matter of months or even weeks.

Our VPS hosting services are backed by high-performance NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) storage, which delivers up to 6 times better performance compared with classic SSD disks, transmitting data at up to 30 Gbps. NVMe was designed for both enterprise and client applications needing acceleration in critical data, and it eliminates bottlenecks and provides capabilities to meet the very demanding and time-sensitive requirements of cloud computing.

Because we use KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) as our virtualization infrastructure of choice, our customers can simultaneously manage several virtual machines and their configurations while enjoying superior security provided by the Linux kernel, an open-source monolithic Unix-like computer operating system kernel that powers nearly 70 percent of the top 10 million Alexa domains.

Apart from the use of cutting-edge technologies, our US customers can benefit from our strategically chosen location: Chicago. Widely known as the premier carrier hub for the Midwest, Chicago is arguably the best location in the United States for providers of hosting services, which is why it’s also home to Motorola Solutions, NetSuite, Snapsheet, Glassdoor, Sprout Social, Flexera, and many other internet-centric companies.

Of course, we’re bringing with us our core principles, which govern everything we do, and which have helped us thrive for well over 10 years. We consider our customers to be the important part of our business and provide reliable 24×7 support with guaranteed response times to help our customers solve any problems they may have in a timely manner.

We are firmly committed to providing our services at competitive prices without sacrificing reliability. Our customers benefit from a 99.97 percent network uptime guarantee, which has earned us Great Uptime Award from HostAdvice, a leading web hosting information center.

Last but not least, we at Bacloud continue to invest in new technology and improve our services in every way we can to make them more attractive to existing and new customers alike. We back everything we do with a 30-day money back guarantee because we’re confident in our services, and we encourage you to try them yourself to see what makes us stand out from the crowd.
