As I mention in the video, my favorite theme to use is GeneratePress. There are a ton of wonderful themes for WordPress, but I’ve found that for me GeneratePress is the easiest to work with.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of hosting options. I use a custom setup that uses DigitalOcean servers with SpinupWP managing the WordPress sites.
But that’s a bit more complicated than most people need so something like SiteGround should work just fine for your first year.
While I haven’t used it I’ve heard a number of great things about Webflow. I can’t compare it to the different uses I need for my sites, but it’s definitely something to check out.
