If you are a beginner or place high importance on user-friendly tools then Bluehost’s intuitive dashboard and built-in WordPress installation will suit your needs well.

Most cost effective


If your main criteria for a host is low prices, then Namecheap is a good choice, with cheaper hosting packages, as well as the option of paying monthly. This site is hosted using Namecheap.

35% of the web uses WordPress

WordPress is open source software you can use to create a beautiful website, blog, or app. Although it has a higher initial learning curve than other platforms such as Wix or SquareSpace, it offers you much more control and ultimate flexibility over your website.

Fastest Growing Theme of All Time


Not only will your website be fast, but you will be able to make it look exactly how you want with their visual theme customiser. With pre-built starter templates to import, excellent performance and great features, I have found Astra to be a very good theme. I started with the free version – which is certainly good enough on it’s own – before upgrading to Pro to unlock the additional benefits.

Email Marketing Provider

ConvertKit has been built with care to the exact needs of creators building online businesses. Their user experience is very user-friendly, and segmenting subscribers into focused groups so that you can deliver content specific to their needs, has never been easier. I really like the visual automation & sequences functionality.
