From website hosts to copywriting services
and more, here’s what I recommend …

Website Hosts

Choosing a quality host is an important part of setting up your WordPress site. A poor hosting provider can have a significant impact on your site’s performance (and your sanity!). The hosts I recommend below were chosen based on performance, customer service, and security.

PLEASE NOTE: There are some hosts that I do not recommend based on both my own experience and that of our clients. I don’t post a list of those hosts here, as I’d prefer not to publicly drag their names through the mud, but if you’re working with me and considering a different host, please let me know before you sign up for services. Making a good choice where hosting is concerned will save hours of frustration down the road.

Domain Registration & Email Hosting

Due to recent email deliverability changes, it’s more important than ever for you to use an email address with your own domain. (For example, I use [email protected]).

Depending on which hosting company you choose, domain registration and email hosting may be available at your hosting provider. If not, I recommend the following:

Namecheap (for Domain Registration)

For domain registration only, I recommend Namecheap. They include free WHOISGuard Identity Protection with each domain registration purchase. There is no need to purchase their hosting or any other add-ons.

Google Workspace (for Email Hosting)

Google Workspace is an excellent choice for email hosting. Their service includes Gmail Business Email using your own domain ([email protected]), as well as other features such as online storage and live support. If you register your domain at Namecheap, they have an option you can select that will automatically configure your domain settings (DNS) for Google Workspace. This makes setup very easy!

Email Marketing

I really can’t overemphasize the importance of building an email list. It has the potential to be the your most powerful marketing tool, and it’s a tool you control, rather than one you have to share with a social media giant such as Facebook. You can read more about the benefits of email marketing in this article from ConvertKit.
