Step 16: Preparations outside WordPress
Here we will activate plugin Jetpack by sign up a wordpress.com account. Then sign up a Stripe account and a PayPal account so that we can take money from customers.
I like the following features offered from Jetpack:
- post sharing buttons (free)
- protection against multiple login (free)
- fast images loading (free)
- backup plan (paid)
Until this point, we are not paying for anything. I strongly recommend paying for the backup plan. It is a disaster recovery plan. Every site should have it.
Now that we have a foundation of security and performance, next we will fine tune the website with some free and paid plugins and make the website looks really fantastic.
