Email Providers

I use the following email services and recommend them. You can read more about my switch from Google Services to ProtonMail and Fastmail. Both of these are affiliate links which means I may make a commission at no additional cost to you.

WordPress Themes & Plugins

GeneratePress WordPress Theme

Since 2019, GeneratePress has been my go-to theme when starting a new project for myself or a client. GeneratePress is super fast out-of-the-box, almost completely customizable via the WordPress Customizer. The free version is great if you are just starting out, but for an experienced developer, the GeneratePress Premium Version (Affiliate Link) takes your creativity to the next level. And best of all, it $59/year for up to 500 websites, or a lifetime payment payment of $249.

Elementor Pro

The #1 Page Builder Plugin for WordPress. Visually design stunning websites with Elementor’s drag & drop live editor and watch your website come to life. Create responsive websites with pinpoint positioning of all site elements in a no-code environment.

Website Analytics

Fathom Analytics

Fathom is a Google Analytics alternative that doesn’t compromise visitor privacy for data. They revolutionized website analytics by making them easy to use and respectful of privacy laws (like GDPR and more). You can read more about my switch to Fathom Analytics.



Cloudflare is a commercial DNS provider, and so much more. It is a global network designed to make everything you connect to secure, private fast and reliable. Start managing your DNS with the free version and add additional services if, and when, you need them. They also provide domain name registration services, email workers and more.

VPN (Virtual Private Network)

Private Internet Access

We all need privacy, especially online. Your IP address and your browsing should be hidden from unnecessary surveillance. Access all of your favorite content free from ISP throttling and annoying network restrictions. Enjoy unlimited bandwidth to stay connected to the world’s best shows, apps, and games.
