If you would rather go it alone instead of hiring us to create and optimize your websites, here are some sources we recommend:
Overflow Cafe has helped many of our clients rank higher in search engines through their Search Engine Optimization program.
Hostwinds is the hosting service we now use and recommend. After having some problems with other hosting services, and following a lot of research for such factors as: reliability, speed and value for price we finally landed on Hostwinds, and we could not be happier. We tried another, supposedly faster host, but they don’t offer CPanel, and we love CPanel to make it so easy for you to access 1-step WordPress setup, easy add-on domains and subdomains, easy database access, and more. Even more important, the host we had been using for years, Hostgator, doesn’t give you free SSL security certificates and Hostwinds does. With more and more emphasis being placed on having an https domain these days, that was the deciding factor for us.
Dollar Web Hosting Club Amazingly, you can get reliable web hosting for as low as $1.00 per month (in U.S. dollars). Even more amazing is that it includes a free SSL security certificate. They also have more expensive plans for hosting more than one domain, faster delivery and other bells and whistles. But you can start for just a buck a month and upgrade later if you wish. We tried it, and it definitely works (better than a more expensive server we also tested). They also give you a 45-day money back guarantee when you sign up.
We use two different domain name registrars, as each has their specific advantages, depending on what we need. They are both reliable, efficient, and well-respected in the industry.
NameCheap. It’s easy to get discount price coupons for their domain and hosting services. They give you free Who-is guard privacy for the first year. Also, if you want to flip the domain, the waiting period is only 60 days.
Godaddy. More heavily promoted, they also have more bells and whistles if you want to flip a domain name. You do have to pay extra for privacy, and there is a 90 day waiting list to transfer to someone who does not have a Godaddy account.
