Site setup – hosting & domains

Bluehost banner


If you’re starting out on a budget, Bluehost lets you build a website for very low cost. It’s good for bootstrapping your business without breaking the bank.

WP Engine

WP Engine

WP Engine is the right host if you are serious about website performance. You get a free SSL certificate, fast loading speed, and fantastic website security. Free migrations included.

Namecheap domain platform


I buy all my domains at Namecheap. They offer great prices, stable service, and you can get email accounts with your domains too. When I used their support, they were helpful.

WordPress Themes

Genesis by StudioPress

Genesis Framework

WP Mastery is built on Genesis, because it is the best theme framework. Blazingly fast, SEO ready, and secure. That’s good enough for me and for most of the projects I’m working on.

Divi Theme

Divi Theme

If you’re looking for a versatile theme builder, Divi is one of the best. The Drag & Drop builder makes it easy to design beautiful websites. You don’t need to touch any code.

Thrive Architect

Thrive Architect 

Thrive Architect page builder allows me to build converting sales and landing pages with ease. No coding, fast loading speed, over 200 templates.

WordPress Plugins

WP Rocket Caching Plugin

WP Rocket

Speed up your WordPress website and improve the user experience of your site. Get more traffic, more conversions and ultimately earn more money.


Monster Insights

Integrate Google Analytics with just a few clicks. Over 12 million downloads prove the quality of this free plugin. And the premium version adds even more functions.

WP GDPR Plugin


Being GDPR compliant is mandatory when your site processes data from EU citizens, e.g. through contact forms. This plugin helps you become compliant and is easy to use.

Blogvault backup service


Probably the best backup service I ever used for WordPress sites. Blogvault does not slow down your website and ensures that you won’t lose your data in case things go sideways. I keep recommending it over and over.

Updraft Plus

Updraft Plus Backups

Updraft is a solid, free WordPress plugin for backups. It requires more configuration than Blogvault, but is reliable and easy to use.

WebARX security

WebARX Security

WebARX is my preferred WordPress security site. It is a cloud-based security system that protects your website from hackers and automated attacks. It is super secure and does not slow down my websites at all.
