For your business site, please contact us for a recommendation. We are migrating our clients to a new platform that has faster speed and includes a lot of features that normally one would pay extra for.
If you need something inexpensive for a hobby site or to experiment, I suggest BlueHost.
With eight years of e-commerce experience, we can help you through not just the design of your store, but setting up business processes to help you provide the best customer experience. We recommend Shopify. We set up and customize Shopify sites, but here is the link in case you want to go it alone. We are available for consulting at an hourly rate as well.
If you write for your blog, you need this:
Write content with confidence — use Grammarly. An Instant Spelling And Grammar Checker, Grammarly checks your grammar and usage within WordPress. It even catches advanced issues such as compound sentence and passive voice problems. It seems to work within most web apps, and plugs into Outlook and Microsoft Word. Since I no longer have to look things up, the time it saves pays for itself.
We love RackSpace e-mail! The support is truly fanatical. I call them and a human being picks up the phone on the first ring. They do all kinds of real techy cloud services, but go to the link below, click on “SOLUTIONS,” then “E-mail Hosting.” I use plain old Rackspace E-mail with the mobile and desktop applications of my choice. Don’t be nervous about how technical their page appears. They treated me as well as I would expect a huge company to be treated and walked me through migrating thousands of emails from my old provider.
