BlueHost: 

I’ve actually used BlueHost for the first few years of blogging. I even had hands-on experience with other BH competitor (HostGator, GoDaddy, DreamHost, iPage, inMotion, etc.) in the market, but I still prefer to go and recommended BlueHost.

It’s a budget-friendly shared web hosting specially for any beginners & master.

Google Optimize: 

It’s my other favorite tool basically used for performing A/B testing and multivariant testing for a website. If you want to know the change in user behavior based on changing your website layout or color combination, the optimize becomes a very handy tool.

A simple snippet code and chrome extension would help to experiment with your users’ behavior without touching any backend code.
