General Shopping

Amazon – By now this site is a household name. I recommend Amazon for price comparison. Sometimes prices can be cheaper elsewhere online or cheaper online than offline but it is always a good place to compare pricing or grab an item for fast shipping. Also, take advantage of the review system which is always a good way to get a general consensus on a products quality. I use it for Christmas time often to search for the latest or timeless age-appropriate toys.

VPN (Virtual Private Network) Services

Private Internet Access – This VPN Service encrypts your connection for security and provides you with an anonymous IP to protect your privacy. This is a subscription service and will have a program that can automatically connect. Easy to setup and worth the security.

Anti-Virus Programs

For businesses I would choose ESET with malwarebytes. I recommend not relying solely on AV Programs for security but these will be of great help as another layer or protection.

Websites – Domains & Hosting

Namecheap – Cheap, reliable domains and first year gives free whois privacy.

Shopify – E-Commerce Website – I have used a lot of ecommerce shops and this is one of my favorites, includes cc processing.

A2 Hosting – Another good hosting company. Fast and unlimited resources for certain plans.

Managed WordPress Hosting

Pressidium® Pinnacle Platform Can be compared to WPEngine for managed WP hosting but does not charge overage fees. Support is DevOps and have been great in benchmark tests.

WPEngine – Top contender of the managed wordpress scene.

Kinsta – Fast and Reliable. They use Google Cloud Platform and 24/7 Support. On the expensive side but you will notice for enterprise operations.

Siteground – I will get to review them more later but for now – Quality customer service, SSD, Top WordPress Hosting

Flywheel – Another top pick for wordpress only hosting. Compare with WPEngine to see what is right for your needs.

Managed Vs Self-Managed

Amazon Services

MageMojo – Ecommerce Magento Shopping Cart – Highly Recommended this company if you are using self-managed Magento. Fast service and excellent support that goes beyond the call of duty.

Internet Service

It depends on your area but try to grab service with fiber optic lines if possible. E-mail me for any recommendations.
