I featured a lot of tools and resources, but what is Hustle Mode ON’s Stack?

Well, I’m going to update this page with my favourite resources.

*Be aware that some of these links could be affiliate links.
But, of course, I only recommend resources and tools that I use and love myself, so I know you’ll be in goodhands. 🙂

SITEGROUND

I use Siteground for all my sites. I think it’s a very good choice if site speed and funcionality are important to you.

In the first 24 hours after Product Hunt’s launch I had ~11k pageviews and the site didn’t slow down, even with my “Startup Plan” (which is only 3,95$ / month).

Plus they have a lot of pros:

  • They have 3 datacenters in USA, Europe and Asia that you can choose for your server. Hustle Mode ON is currently hosted in Chicago. Europe’s datacenter is in Amsterdam and Asia’s datacenter is in Singapore.
  • You have a free domain for the first year (altough not on all gTLDs).
  • Servers are higly configured and your site will load super fast (see pingdom and gtmetrix screenshoots below).
  • Support is super fast, professional and available 24/7.
  • They have a unique Account Isolation Technology, which is a mechanism that isolates server accounts from each other. So, in case a site on the same server as your site gets compromised, your site will be safe.
  • They have their own SuperCacher caching solution for WordPress and Joomla.
  • They claim they have an overall uptime of 99.996% and thus far they’re right from what I can see everyday with my sites.
  • A lot others I’m forgetting right now or I didn’t noticed 🙂

To be fair, obviously the price may be a little higher than other competitors like Bluehost, but I think that Siteground really worths the extra dollars 🙂

TOTAL WORDPRESS THEME

WPExplorer claims that this WordPress theme is called TOTAL for a reason. And they’re right.
Total is an amazing theme, packed with a lot of great features! I think I’ll use it for all my sites from now on.

Here’s some of the features I love the most:

  • It is really well coded and SEO optimized (you can see the results in the screenshots above).
  • It’s obviously Responsive.
  • It’s compatible with basically all plugins out there.
  • Under Construction Page feature is included, meaning you don’t have to search and install a plugin for that.
  • Visual Composer Page Builder is included ($34 value). With VC is very very easy to build new pages in front-end or back-end.
  • Slider Revolution, Layer Slider 5 and Templatera are included ($55 value).
  • The theme customizer works really well.
  • Automatic updates go in tandem with WordPress updates.
  • It has a lot of custom post types ready to use.
  • You can import demos and build your site upon them.
  • It’s a multipurpose, meaning you can build almost every site you want.

If you need a very user-friendly and fast WordPress Theme, then TOTAL would be your first choice, because I really believe that this is currently the best Multi-Purpose theme on the market. 🙂
