    AppTrana is an excellent cost-effective choice to get an enterprise-level CDN and WAF security for small to large organizations.

    They bundle CDN site acceleration into their WAF at no additional cost in partnership with Tata Communication which has coverage and POPs all over the world.

    It is not possible to truly scale up and manage thousands of web applications if you have to manually verify the results of vulnerability assessments.

    Netsparker uses the Proof-Based Scanning™ to automatically verify the identified vulnerabilities with proof of exploit, thus making it possible to scan thousands of web applications and generate actionable results within just hours.

    I’ve used SiteGround in the past and still use it from time to time for lab work.  Their cutting-edge technologies make your site faster and come with all the latest performance and security features.

    You can choose to host your site in Chicago, Singapore, London or Amsterdam. SiteGround now leverages Google Cloud to host some of its infrastructures. This is great news!

    GCP is probably the best cloud platform for small to enterprise businesses.

    Geekflare is hosted on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). One of the best hosting platforms to host your simple to complex applications.

    GCP is not a managed platform which means you need to take care of necessary software installation and optimization for speed and security.

    If you are familiar with system administration tasks then give a try, you will love it. However, if you are not and looking for managed Google Cloud hosting for WordPress then try Kinsta or WP Engine.

    A cost-effective solution for sending newsletter, marketing, product updates emails.

    The cheapest solution to send emails. Sendy is a self-hosted email software that connects to AWS SES to send emails at little cost.

    It got all the features you get from a SaaS-based email marketing platform so if you are familiar with Linux and software installation, configuration then Sendy will save you a lot of money.

    SEO-optimized and lightweight WordPress framework

    Go with the data. That’s what I did by choosing the WordPress framework theme. Genesis is the most used theme in the top 10k sites.

    What else prove is needed to use this?
