Elementor Page Builder

Elementor blew the WordPress page-builder landscape apart when it was launched a couple of years ago – it was so good, unbelievably good, and keeps getting better.

Its my weapon of choice for making websites.  No Contest.

SiteGround Hosting

SiteGround is my No. 1 choice for Managed WordPress Hosting.  I use if for all my client and personal sites – including this one!

It’s fast, affordable, scalable, has some awesome WordPress features, Backup, and some of the best Support you’ll find anywhere.

WP Rocket Website Speed

A modern WordPress website needs a good Cache Plugin – simple as that.  

WP Rocket is not just a good Cache plugin – Its The Best Cache Plugin.  I know, Ive tested them all!

UpdraftPlus Backup

Your Host should be backing up your website every day – if its not you’re with the wrong host! (see jakson.co/siteground and get that sorted!) .

But I always install this amazing plugin for that extra piece of mind – it can store your backups externally to DropBox, Amazon S3 etc.  Plus you can take manual backups as and when you want  – great for development when you want to  add a new plugin or update your database!
