Our Resources

WE PUT OUR MONEY WHERE OUR MOUTH IS

With over a decade of designing, building and hosting websites, we tested a LOT of resources of all kinds. Here are the ones we recommend — we have 100% trust in these choices and that is why we use all of them for our own clients.

Hosting

We have been operating our server on GreenGeeks for years now — the performance is top notch, everything is scalable, and their customer service is THE best (they got me out of some awkward pinches in the past).

We provide hosting for our clients’ sites on our GreenGeeks server but if you are looking to have your own piece of internet land, this is the place to do it.

Website Platform

Back in 2006, I started creating websites in HTML from scratch, which was tedious… and a real pain. I switched 100% to WordPress around 2010 and I haven’t looked back ever since.

WordPress as a stand-alone platform is very powerful, completely customizable, and at a whopping 30% marketshare of ALL LIVE WEBSITES on the web, this is the way to go.

Free Optimization Plugins

OUR PICKS TO SECURE, SEO, AND SPEED UP YOUR SITE

We take web security VERY seriously. That is why we protect all our sites with multi-layered security features. And WordFence is a powerful one we rely on to protect our sites “from the inside out”.

Yoast SEO will guide you through the Ô-so-important SEO optimization you need to do on your site — very powerful and super easy to use, we tweak all our websites with this one.

If you do ecommerce on your site, you will need a SSL certificate (click here for the best prices). Otherwise, you can use CloudFlare‘s free SSL solution to secure your site. It also caches your site onto several international nods, which makes your site load faster for visitors around the world. Again, this is one we plug in on all our sites. When signing up, choose the Free plan and you will be set up in a matter of minutes.

Paid Optimization Plugins

WHEN INVESTING A FEW DOLLARS REALLY MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Having a lot of images on your site will slow it down. So you need to keep these images optimized, which can be done manually… but who’s got the time for that, right? ShortPixel takes care of it right on your site — we bulk optimize every site we launch, and the plugin keeps newly added images optimized, too. “Plug It and Forget It!”

“Recognized as the MOST POWERFUL caching plugin by WordPress experts”, WP Rocket is very powerful and user-friendly. We get our websites running much faster with a few clicks. It saves us a lot of manual optimizations and we <3 that.

We use DepositPhotos for all our images, professional photos, vectors, etc. Literally millions of images available for a pretty affordable price — check out their $30/month plan that gets you 30 images! 😉

Interesting Extras

We invested into Invanto in early 2017 to take a different route: after building online courses and membership websites from scratch, we decided to simplify our approach so we were looking for an ‘all-in-one’ platform that would replace our previous setup. Invanto is very powerful, user-friendly, and on a constant improvement path, striving to be the best in its department. They sure are proving themselves as a very solid contender!
