Some of My Favorite Tools & Resources

There are so many tools around the web that promise to make your life easier that it’s often difficult not to get distracted by all the shiny objects out there. This page is a list of tools that I am personally using, finding useful, and that I enjoy.

I promise not to add something to this page until I’ve used it myself and feel comfortable recommending it. There are plenty tools I’ve reviewed or tested out that I won’t be recommending. Now, let’s get to the good stuff….

Domain Names & Website Hosting Services:

I prefer using Namecheap for my domains. I know there are plenty of other registrars out there, but Namecheap is my favorite because they don’t try to up-sell you 500 things you don’t need with your domain name and the WhoIs privacy protection service is always free.

Big Discounts for Domains, Hosting, SSL and more

I use Reliable Webs for my hosting. I’ve been with them for a long time now, after trying many other hosts. The customer service is always amazing and answered by a real person who is knowledgeable about all the things that go on behind the scenes of a website.

Reliable Webs Hosting for WordPress, Small Business, and Blogging

If you’re looking for something different in hosting, I have several clients who are using WP Engine Managed WordPress Hosting for their niche website projects and all are very happy with the service they’ve received, so maybe one of their packages is a good fit for you as well. Since it’s from the team at StudioPress, you can be confident that they know and understand WordPress, plus you can get premium themes included with your hosting package.

WordPress Themes, Plugins, and Widgets:

There’s no shortage of themes and templates available for WordPress. These are my go-to resource picks…

Plugins are what make WordPress even more flexible and easy to customize. If you need to tweak something or add some nifty feature, there’s always a plugin for that. A few of my favorite plugins include:

  • Jetpack
  • Wordfence
  • PrettyLinks
  • RankMath
