Domain hosts that are VO accessible and support Wordpress.

Forum
macOS and Mac Apps

Hey everyone, I’m looking to start a website by using the Wordpress platform and was wondering, from those who have experience, what domain hosts are (at least mostly) accessible with voiceover. I’m also looking for one click set up as well so that the process of getting things started is as easy as possible. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

One hosting provider that could fit your description is Quality Site Hosting. They can definitely take care of you and get you set up with Wordpress in no time at all. Since you do want simplicity, this hosting provider can definitely take care of you, as they set most things up for you, complete with control panel and other relevant configurations you require. You can check them out here: https://qs-hosting.com I of course don't know your other necessary details, but there is one hosting provider to check out. I don't know of others that have the same level of ease and simplicity like they do. Hope this helps!

I’m actually taking a course from Mystic Access for the Wordpress platform so I’ll be good managing most stuff myself. I just want to make sure whoever is hosting my site and domain has good accessibility otherwise. I think I’ve seen Bluehost mentioned here and I’ve also heard of Dreamhost too.

Hello,
I have been using www.ultrahost.us for a while now. They are accessible. The tech support person I usually deal with is blind himself. It uses cpanel to do all the backend work. It is also really easy to install Wordpress.

@DudeLove721: You're taking a course? That's interesting. Mind sharing some details where I can check this out? I don't know much when it comes to the idea of putting all the backend stuff of a site, and QS-Hosting was my choice of provider since they helped me get situated. I put together my own pages, and am not using a content management system, so there's also that. The idea of a CMS has always seemed fascinating to me, though. Just to keep the advertising going on, like the previous poster put in about a staff member being visually impaired, QS-Hosting has staff that are visually impaired. Not sure how that effects your final decision, but there's the fun fact for them, if you take it as such. As for your point about accessibility, from the beginning there's reasonable web site layout, and the page seems easily accessed by a screen reader. The control panel they use, Plesk, is also pretty accessible. Feels straightforward to figure out, at least for me. You'll have to give it a shot yourself to see if you will be comfortable using it. Links, buttons, edit controls, other form controls are read out by Voiceover and NVDA, the two screen readers I use, so there's that to give you an idea. All that said, hope this extra bit of info helps out in some way. Good luck, and happy searching!

Here is the address for the course : https://www.mysticaccess.com/product/wordpress-websites-for-the-blind/

It goes week by week, but you can also proceed at your own pace. It’s about 12 hours of content with supplemental information at a web portal and a mailing list for participants they’ve set up for after you purchase it. It seems very useful and they put a lot of time and effort into the course. It‘s also specifically geared to the blind and visually impaired. Hope the link helps!

Hi
I can also recommend
https://qs-hosting.com

Excellent pricing, excellent customer service, and excellent uptime. I can recommend wholeheartedly without reservation. They will also do custom projects if you need that as well. Again I can't stress enough how quickly they responded to my service requests and helpfully answered my questions.

Hi,

I let wordPress handle the hosting and backend of my blog. I've heard of other providers on podcasts, but I'm keen to stick with WordPress because of its Mars Edit integration. Paying one company a flat fee for everything works for me.
