My all-time favourites
Domain Name – GoDaddy
GoDaddy is the World’s Largest Domain Registrar providing Domains, SSL certificates. All my .com, .net and .info domains are registered at GoDaddy and I have been with them for more than 10 years.
Web Hosting – Dreamhost
I use Dreamhost for all my websites. Their Control Panel is pretty simple to use and they provide a lot of one-click installs that you can add to your website. You can get $25 off by using my special promo link.
Blogging CMS – WordPress
WordPress is a content management system that is both free and priceless at the same time. It has a huge community and the core system is developed by hundreds of community volunteers, making it a very robust and powerful content management system. It is one of the most popular blogging software used today. This blog is built on WordPress.
Web analytics – Google Analytics
I use Google Analytics to track statistics to my websites. Google analytics is free, enterprise-class, and it is very easy to set up. Some of the things I look at from my Google Analytics reports are Browser usage, Screen resolution, Referring sites, Total visits, and Most viewed pages.
WordPress Themes – ThemeForest
ThemeForest is a Premimum theme provider and they are very famous for WordPress Themes. I have written a review on ThemeForest vs WooThemes if you would like to find out more about their WordPress themes. ThemeForest provides more than just premium WordPress Themes; they have email newsletter templates, psd layouts, web 2.0 graphics and many more. While I use website template designs from Template Monster, I go to ThemeForest for WordPress Themes, newsletter templates and graphics.
Website templates – Template Monster
Template Monster offers premium website templates, flash templates, web templates and other web design products for immediate download. They are one of the oldest template sellers, have a wide range of categories (Health, Beauty, Corporate, Food & Drinks, Retail, etc) and unique designs. I have been using them for more than five years and no other template provider comes close to Template Monster when it comes to website templates.
Google Products (Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets)
I use Google products for creating content, presentation, spreadsheet and so on. They are on the cloud so I can access them from anywhere.
Canva (Graphic Design)
I don’t know how I used to survive without Canva. Actually, I do – I used Photoshop. But Canva is much, much easier, for designing beautiful graphics to be used for my content and social media. And it’s free and web-based.
Buffer & Hootsuite (Social Media Management)
I work full-time and there is no way I can be tweeting or posting status updates during work hours. I use Buffer for scheduling posts on multiple social media accounts at once.
