We’ve spent a great deal of time researching the best hosting providers, plugins, and other tools for WordPress site owners.

After years of testing and hundreds of hours of research, here are some of the best tools and resources we’ve found…

WordPress Hosting

We’ve tried nearly all of the popular web hosting companies, and we’ve narrowed our recommendations down to two choices, depending on your current level of traffic.

Caching Plugins

Installing a caching plugin is one of the best ways to speed up your WordPress site. We tested, used, and researched some of the most popular WordPress caching solutions to help you make an informed choice for your website.

Security Plugins

We tested the most popular security and backup solutions for WordPress. One plugin vastly outperformed the rest on both price and functionality.

Comment Plugins

There are a number of plugins that can extend or even replace the default WordPress comment system, providing a richer commenting experience for your readers. We tested them all and shared our experience here.
