$50 from Jez at Jezweb Pty Ltd
We're donating this week on behalf of Jezweb client Simplifying Business – https://www.myprivatepractice.com.au which is a training course provider to help doctors improve their businesses. Something interesting I found this week was SSLs for Free, https://www.sslforfree.com/ whilst I've been using lets encrypt with our client sites I had a situation where the host a site was on didn't have lets encrypt integration, rather than paying for a cert though I was able to get a freebie from this site.
Thanks to all donors who came in under $50
You can now donate though Patreon at http://patreon.com/wppluginsatoz where you can donate on a monthly basis. As an incentive if you donate $40 a month you will gain access to the exclusive plugin tutorial videos on how to setup and use the plugins we review and use.
