Services and tools I use

Welcome to my resources page where I provide you with useful resources, tools, applications, and websites to help you get what you need. I recommend adding this page to your bookmarks for convenient future reference. Some of these companies provide me a commission if you guys decide to purchase. But I only recommend products that I use and know to my knowledge their benefits. Since most of you that come here are my students, I only want the best of the best for you.

bluehost for hosting


Bluehost logo
I’m recommending BlueHost now because GoDaddy has let me down a couple times. Let me tell you a couple reasons why I decided to use and recommend BlueHost for you guys.

HERE IS THE LINK they gave me for my students. Just CLICK this link right here —> . I will always keep this link updated for you guys.

  1. Better uptime – Better uptime than my previous hosting provider.
  2. Better customer service – I don’t get these pushy sales people trying to sell me me more stuff. Just kind people willing to help me in all my hosting needs.

You can get 1 free domain and cheap hosting with them as well, they are the best in my experience so far for you guys starting out and for those who are looking for good services.

Steps to get the cheapest plan?  I recommend going for a plan that has SSL if you are planning on putting your website or apps online for people to see.

Why? Browsers now are enforcing the HTTPS protocols and you need to have a SSL certificate now unless you want an ugly message saying your website is not secured and that is dangerous. Your visitors will run out and leave your website fast if you don’t  have one.

Bluehost offers 

  • FREE Domain Name
  • FREE SSL Certificate Included
  • 1-Click WordPress Install
  • 24/7 Support

NOTE: For those following my tutorials online: BlueHost has cPanel as well, so everything will be the same as in my tutorials.

IDE’s I love and recommend!


PyCharm is my favorite IDE for Python, it has a bunch of really cool features. I use it a lot with Python projects.

WebStorm is my favorite IDE for javascript, I use it with frameworks a lot, I can’t live without it.

Java here we go, I love this one for my side Java projects, use this one when you need the best help with your Java code, you can’t go wrong with this one.

I might get credit and in some cases commissions for some of the products I recommend if the person subscribes to it. I only recommend the ones I use and give me the best satisfaction. I will not recommend bad services even if they pay me a million dollars since is a bad reputation for me.

Keep in mind that I get large discounts that I pass to my subscribers!

PHP here we go, I love this one for my side all my PHP projects, use this one when you need the best syntax highlighting, code completion, server connections, database managing and lots more code you can’t go wrong with this one or any of the JetBrains products. Did I mention I don’t get paid from them 🙂

Some other tools

This is?my password management tool and its the safest out there. Since passwords have to be long and have symbols so they can be secured; It?s hard to remember all the passwords, so this tool is a lifesaver.

Things I love about it??

  1. It saves the passwords on your computer, so it’s safe
  2. Syncs to online account (optionally) to access via the web
  3. It can login to any account in one click from the browser menu bar
  4. It?s a great password generator also
  5. It?s the safest

or download it here for PC Download


COOL Database tool and they have Windows and MAC OS support – they have a free trial but sometimes can be a little tedious to work with the free version cause it doesn’t let you open multiple tabs, but I recommend it if you want something nice.
