Here’s a list of resources, tools, and other fun stuff that I have used to build and grow… Please know that I have used these resources myself and I would never list a product or service I didn’t believe in.

Website Essentials

 

Name Cheap

My favorite place to get a domain (this is your website address, example www.laurakamark.com). Their prices are great plus they offer FREE domain privacy. It’s a win-win

Flywheel

My top recommendation for hosting. In the world full of hosting plans, not all are created equal, and you definitely get what you pay for. Flywheel also has some of the nicest customer support reps that I have ever had the pleasure of chatting with, they are super knowlegeable and incredible helpful.

WP Engine

My second recommendation for hosting is WP Engine (who aquired Flywheel in 2019). You want fast speed and great customer support, you can’t go wrong with either of these two hosting options.

WordPress

I build all my clients websites with wordpress. I love how you can do just about anything on this platform, so go ahead and dream your big ideas.

Divi Theme

Divi by Elegant themes is one of the top website themes there is. The builder is very user friendly with limitless possibilites.
