Every site needs web hosting. Put simply web hosting is where the files, information and content that create your website live. These files are stored on a remote computer which is known as a host. If your website is painfully slow, it may be due to the quality of service that you receive from your hosting company.
There are many companies out there and it is hard to know who to choose. I have been using Siteground for my personal WordPress site for a few years. Recently, they improved the service and now the sites are super fast.
I am in love with Flywheel. In addition to the fact that the sites are superfast, their customer service is phenomenal. This is my GoTo solution for sites that are larger and can afford better hosting. The disadvantage is that Flywheel does not support emails. You will need to set up a separate hosting like Google or Microsoft for business emails.
They also both have themes that you can get for the same price.
I love Beaver Builder for its simplicity and the fact that it loads extremely fast. If you are looking for elegance and speed, this is the one. None of the other page builders are as intuitive as Beaver Builder.
Beaver Builder is a theme and a page builder. The fact that the company has been around for so long and charges an annual fee gives me confidence to invest in this technology long term.
Divi is a page builder and a theme. I love it because of its robustness and multiple templates, that never fail to Wow my clients. You can change colors, fonts and images. There is a learning curve, but Elegant Themes (who create Divi) have lots of educational resources.
There are additional themes and plugins that are all included in the same price. I recommend taking a lifetime membership.
