Website Resources

If you are building a website, there are a few things you will need. The following are some services that I use and can recommend.

Website Hosting and Domain Name

Web HostingSiteGround

SiteGround is the hosting service I use for this site, and for my client sites. They have excellent customer support, and fast, reliable and secure servers. WordPress can be easily installed from Softaculous in your cPanel.

I have hosted some of my websites with DreamHost for many years. I have found them to be reliable, always upgrading their hardware to keep up with demands. They also offer easy “one-click install” for WordPress and other applications, and even have specialized WordPress hosting for high volume sites.

The Divi Theme

Elegant Themes

To use one of my child themes, you will need the parent Divi theme from Elegant Themes. Elegant Themes offers an annual subscription which includes all of their themes. Their Monarch (social sharing) and Bloom (email optin) plugins are also very popular, and are available with the Developer or Lifetime subscriptions.

Images

If you are developing a website, chances are you will need some stock photography or graphics. You can find many images on Pixabay that are free to use. However the selection in certain categories may be limited and not as professional as you might need.

DepositphotosDeposit Photos

I use images from Deposit Photos quite often. They are relatively low cost, and you can find excellent quality images.

Video

Video is becoming a popular element used on websites. You can find a selection of videos on Videvo that are free to use (be sure to check the licensing requirements as some require attribution. However the selection is limited and not as professional as you might need.
