Web Hosts

One of the biggest mistakes a blogger can do is choose a web host based on price and not reputation and research. A bad web host can make or break your website and/or business.

  • GreenGeeks * – Green Geeks is my current web host. Sometimes you just need to try someone new and compare to your old. So far, so great! New!
  • Bluehost – Perfect for new bloggers and smaller sites with room to grow.
  • Hostinger
  • SiteGround 
  • StudioPress – Yes! They have web hosting now!
  • WPEngine – Dedicated WordPress hosting from Personal sites to Enterprise!

Domains

Although you can obtain a domain through your web host, I prefer to use a company outside of it. This helps in the event you decide to change your web host.

WordPress Themes
