idrive.com – Well priced and larger TB backup storage. Multiple devices, snapshots, disk imaging. Personal Dashboard.

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.

Password Manager

Dashlane – Keep your password in one place with a master password. They will be encrypted and you can choose to install the plugins with auto-save and auto-login as well. Dashlane will also go through and tell you if your credentials are a part of any past breaches and will generate complex passwords for you. Free or Paid for syncing to all devices. Either way they often do a free trial of 3-6 months.

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.
  • Thrive Themes – Site Architect for WordPress sites along with leads and more
  • UseProof.com – Display real-time customer activity notifications on your website and let your existing customers sell for you.

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.

Internet Service

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

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. Know your threat model and avoid scam phone calls, websites and emails.
