- Domains.HeatherWrightPorto.com. No matter what solution or person you choose to work with, I highly recommend you purchase and OWN your DOMAIN. This way there is no hassle in the future should you choose to change hosts or platform. YOU are in CONTROL of your own domain.
Please note this is my website. I am a GoDaddy Reseller.
- Neta Talmor, No-Hassle Website. This is a wonderful DIY (Do It Yourself) solution! Basically you purchase one of her pre-made WordPress themes (based on DIVI), her team installs it for you, and then YOU have to enter all your information (change out all the text, images, changes the colors or fonts if desired). Good news is she has fantastic videos and instruction on how to do it all yourself. No-Hassle Website also offers top-knotch customer service and support! If you are a do-it-yourself-er then I highly recommend it. This site, HeatherWrightPorto.com is a No-Hassle Website solution. Remember to mention that I sent ya (in the Referred By area).
- Amy Celona, Webs By Amy. Looking for your one-stop shop, well you found it! Amy offers everything you need to be up and running with a new WordPress site. She has superior WordPress HOSTING and many additonal features and bonuses. Webs By Amy also has different packages for Site Setup and Design! And design work is BEAUTIFUL! Remember to mention that I sent ya (in the Referred By area).
- BlueHost and SiteGround. Although I strongly suggest using Webs By Amy for your WordPress hosting solutions, BlueHost is an affordable alternative I have worked with personally, as well as used with my clients. SiteGround however is now a very popular WordPress Hosting solution and known for its speed! I am also an affiliate of Blue Host and SiteGround hosting.
- Looking for WordPress Themes! My site is based off of Divi by Elegant Themes. Many of the sites I develop are as well, and No Hassle Website sites are also all Divi-based. It is a drag-and-drop, easy peasy site builder! You will love it. I am now an affiliate as I use and recommend it all the time. If I design your site, then you do NOT need to purchase it as I will install it for you.
- More stunning WordPress Themes. You have to check out StudioPress! They are gorgeous!!! I would highly recommend these themes for scabality and grown of your site and business, SEO optimized, mobile/responsive, eCommerce-ready, simply stunning, and so much more. Niche, Refined, Market Pro, and Glam are among my favorites! Amy Celona uses them a lot as well. Although I do love these themes, yes, I am also an affiliate. And now WPEngine (another WordPress hosting solution) and StudioPress are united.
- Looking for some other needed, cool tools! Well, you know you need a site back-up right?!?! iThemes BackupBuddy is superb! I am an affiliate. I do use UpdraftPlus Backup plugin as well (which is FREE).
- Need to create a custom landing page for a new product launch? Don’t have Divi? You can purchase and use Divi Builder plugin in any existing WordPress site. That definitely is an option. However, there is also the popular Elementor and user-friendly Beaver Builder. Drag and drop, easy to use! I am also an affiliate of all these web page builders as I use them personally for building client sites.
- April 2020 I just purchased WP Rocket and Imagify to keep my site speedy and clean, images optimized. I purchased this after reviewing the GTMetrix.com report of this site. Please note, I am an affiliate and recomment WP Rocket.
