Here you will find the best WordPress tools, products, and resources that I use to run How-To WP and highly recommend them to every WordPress beginner.

WordPress Hosting


Namecheap is great for those whose budget is very low but they still prefer to start a self-hosted WordPress blog instead of a hosted WordPress blog.

It only costs $15.44 for the first year to start a blog with Namecheap (if you already have a domain name). But if you don’t have a domain name then it will cost you around $24.32 for the first year including a .com domain name with Namecheap.



Divi is the most popular WordPress Theme and Page Builder. I highly recommend Divi to every WordPress beginner because it’s very easy to learn and customize, it’s the most beginner-friendly WordPress theme. The community behind Divi is great. And there are lots of Divi resources, freebies, and child themes available to extend its functionality.



Bloom is an email Opt-in and lead generation plugin. It helps you to grow your subscribers. You can create 6 types of Opt-in forms using Bloom, which you can see in the below screenshot.

Monarch is the best Social Media sharing plugin. You can create 5 types of social media share buttons on your blog or website. Moreover, you can also create social media follow buttons using this plugin.

I highly recommend Divi, Bloom, and Monarch to every WordPress blogger and site owner because when these 3 products are combined, they bring the best deal to you. You only pay $89 for these 3 awesome products. But if you buy a theme and plugin for Optin Forms and Social Media Sharing buttons from different providers, then it will cost you a lot.

Divi Toolbox

Divi Toolbox is the only Divi plugin you ever need to extend your Divi blog or website functionality. It provides many options which you must need to customize your Divi blog or website.


WPForms is the most beginner-friendly drag & drop WordPress form builder plugin. It allows you to quickly set up a contact form on your blog or website.

It also provides the ability to add Google reCAPTCHA to prevent spam emails and submissions. I’m currently using it with Invisible Google reCAPTCHA on my Contact page and I haven’t received any spam email so far.


ShortPixel is an image optimization plugin which can automatically optimize your pictures when you upload them to the WordPress media library.

Image optimization have a vital role in the loading speed of your website. Image optimization can greatly improve your page loading speed.
