Plugins add functionality to WordPress. Sometimes you might be expanding the ability of a particular feature, while others are adding brand new features to the platform itself. At American Creative Consulting, we carefully select advanced plugins for every site, keeping in mind security, development, and cost.
The paid, pro version of this visual builder plugin is what we recommend for every site. However, there is a free version available in the WordPress plugin directory. This will give you the basic elements for building your site pages quickly and easily.
IP2Location County Blocker
Security comes in all shapes and sizes, but if you’re running a domestic company, you probably don’t need to have people (or bots) accessing your site from other countries, like Russia or Ukraine. Most bot attacks originate in these countries and this plugin can make it easy for you to blackllist traffic.
WP Mail SMTP
Something that isn’t regularly tested on WordPress sites is the WP Mail function. It’s built in with WordPress and can sometimes have a conflict with your hosting provider. When your emails are not delivering or you need advanced setups, WP Mail SMTP is our go to resource. You can perform basic mail tests right in the plugin without additional costs!
