I recently switched to A2 Hosting after six years with my previous provider Hostgator. And I could not be happier with service and performance that A2 offer.
Although, lesser known than other web hosts, A2 are in my opinion heads and shoulder above the competition. I conducted a lot of research before switching to A2 Hosting, and so far, they have not let me down.
How many posts do I need before I launch my blog? This is a question asked by many new bloggers.

However, if by launch you mean actively promoting and marketing your blog to attract visitors and turn them into fans, then I would say that you need at least fifteen posts, more if you have multiple topic categories.
To build and grow a successful blog you need reliable web hosting it’s the backbone of your online business.
