Welcome to this resources section, a list of the tools and websites I strongly recommend for building and optimizing your applications or online venture. I have tested every recommendation on this page and many have been crucial to my development or running of this website. The resources will help with may aspects including basic setup/installation, adding advanced functionality, learning new skills and much more... Before checking out the resources below here is an important disclosure:
Udemy is an online education marketplace with limitless variety: over 7 million students enrolled in more than 30,000 courses,taught by 19,000 instructors (and counting).
If you need to learn something new this is a great place to start as you can take part in a quick training session online and be up and running with the basics of any topic or development language very quickly. Courses also come with a 30 day money back guarentee just incase you are not happy for any reason.
Hostgator makes it incredibly easy to get a new site up and running with their one-click automatic WordPress Blog installation.
You can use your gatorhost account to host multiple domains so there is no need to pay extra for hosting when you're ready to start another website.
I highly recommend using gatorhost for your first website, not only does it offer all the features you are going to need
but its very easy to setup and you can get started now for $3.49/month.
Also see here for how to register a domain with hostgator and how it can be setup as an addon domain. An addon domain allows you to host multiple domains on a single hosting plan.
One.com was my first hosting provider over 15 years ago and when I first started with them they were very cheap and very simple to use and did everything you needed to get a website up and running.
I still use one.com and over the years they have grown with me and have implemented massive changes with the introduction of more advanced features such as 1click wordpress installation and plans with increased performance.
They still actually offer one years hosting for free, all you pay is a setup fee of about £10.80, and if you go via this link you will get £5 off that price. So 1 years hosting including domain name for £4.80....and yes that is for the full year!
Fiverr offers a fantastic service which I have used may times and is the world's largest marketplace for services starting at $5. You can get designers to create you a icon/images or developers to write you some code including ABAP, CSS, HTML, PHP, update a wordpress theme or plugin etc etc
Excellent site if you want to hire freelance programmers, web developers, designers, writers, data entry & more at a fraction of the cost on the World's Largest Outsourcing Marketplace.
Kind of similar to fiverr but instead of requesting a gig to be done by a specific developer you upload your development request and then professional freelancers bid to do the work. You then select who you prefer either based on experience or cost. Is also a good place to find freelancing work.
