Speed Toolbox

High Performance WordPress Hosting

I don’t like choosing second-class solutions. And I recommend doing the same if you are serious about your site’s performance. That’s why I strongly recommend Kinsta.

Looking for a cheaper hosting? Like I said, my first choice go with Kinsta, but if it doesn’t fit your business (I don’t see why it wouldn’t), I recommend Siteground.

Fast WordPress Theme

Of course, I recommend our speed-focused themes. They are the fastest themes on the market.

CDN

I’m a huge Cloudflare fan. Even on the free plan, Cloudflare is a good choice.

Hey! Check out my Cloudflare performance setup guide!

Caching Plugins

I like Cache Enabler for its simplicity and the fact that it is free. However, if you’re looking for something faster, you may try WP Rocket.

Image Optimization

My favorite image optimization plugin is Compress JPEG & PNG images by TinyPNG.Check out my guide on how to set it up.

Images on my websites are also magically optimized by Cloudflare 🙂

Email Marketing

For email marketing and list building, I use Mailchimp.

Analytics

I use Google Analytics with the CAOS plugin to host locally the Google Analytics script.
