So, first of all I have created index.html file. And added button tag, and inside it I have added anchor tag.

HTML


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>Document</title>
</head>
<body>
    
    <button class="button" type="button">
        <a href="#">Hover</a>
    </button>

</body>
</html>

CSS


body{
    width: 100%;
    height: 100vh;
    display: flex;
    align-items: center;
    justify-content: center;
}
.button{
    background-color: transparent;
    padding: 0;
}
.button a{
    font-size: 35px;
    padding: 10px 20px;
    text-decoration: none;
    display: block;
    color: #000;

So, here's a simple button is created. As you can see above image, I have added hover effects on button anchor tag of white colour, as initially a black colour is there and I have not removed border in button, it just to show the button length and width. Later I will remove it. 


1. Now let's add different hover effects to button.

So, to add hover effects I have added span tag inside button tag and after anchor tag.

HTML


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

</head>
<body>
    
    <button class="button" type="button">
        <a href="#">Hover</a><span></span>
    </button>

</body>
</html>

css


body{
    width: 100%;
    height: 100vh;
    display: flex;
    align-items: center;
    justify-content: center;
}
.button{
    background-color: transparent;
    border: none;
    z-index: 1;
    position: relative;
    padding: 0;
}
.button a{
    font-size: 35px;
    padding: 10px 20px;
    text-decoration: none;
    display: block;
    color: #000;
    transition: 0.2s;
}
.button a:hover{
    color: #fff;
}
span{
    position: absolute;
    width: 0%;
    height: 100%;
    background-color: blue;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    z-index: -1;
    transition: 0.2s;
}
.button:hover span{
    width: 100%;
}
