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.
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
Shopify – E-Commerce Website – I have used a lot of ecommerce shops and this is one of my favorites, includes cc processing.
Siteground – I will get to review them more later but for now – Quality customer service, SSD, Top WordPress Hosting
A2 Hosting – Another good hosting company. Will give a proper review soon.
WPEngine – If you are wanting premium wordpress only hosting, these guys are at the top.
Flywheel – Another top pick for wordpress only hosting. Compare with WPEngine to see what is right for your needs.
Virtual Private Servers
MageMojo – Magento Shopping Cart – Highly Recommended this company if you are using Magento. Fast service and excellent support that goes beyond the call of duty.
It depends on your area but try to grab service with fiber optic lines if possible. E-mail me for any recommendations.
