Essential website creation tools

My favorite place to buy domain names

NameCheap

The first step is to own a domain name if you haven’t got one yet. There so many options from where you buy your domain – but pay attention because for the exact service you can pay more or less. I recommend checking out Namecheap that offers the latest in high-quality domain services at the most competitive prices in the business.

Choose from over 400 domain name extensions – from the classic .com to the most recent added specials such as .design /.coach/ .life/ etc.

Website Hosting Options

DreamHost

The second step after owning your domain name (your business website URL address) is to pick a suitable hosting package for your website files and content.

Choose a hosting package considering your business needs:  how many websites you plan to host plus the additional services that you want to have. Security, speed, uptime, customer support, price – all are important factors when choosing your hosting platform.

My recommendation for the website hosting platform with affordable prices suitable for start-up businesses is DreamHost.

As a bonus when paying for a yearly hosting package in advance you get a free domain name. 

If you have a rising business and needs extra security and speed for your website I recommend: WpEngine (starting at €280,00/ per year for one website)

What you need to know

Price: starting at $2.95/mo when paid yearly ($35/ for the first year unlimited websites hosted)

My favorite WordPress theme

Divi by Elegant Themes

Divi is the #1 theme that I recommend. I use it for all the custom websites that I build.

Divi takes your WordPress experience to a new level by allowing you to create 100% customizable websites and landing pages for your offers. You have control over everything down to the finest detail.
