Domain Name Registrar


namecheapNameCheap is a domain name registrar that offers domain names for an inexpensive $10/year. I only use them for Domain Registrar.

GoDaddy is often a favorite for a lot of my clients because they usually have coupon codes and deals, but I only recommend them for domain registrar only, not for hosting.

Hosting

Inexpensive Starter Shared Hosting
BlueHost Logo
Bluehost is a WordPress-recommended hosting. Out of the 3 hosts they have recommended, only Bluehost has 24/7 customer support available by phone, email, and chat, as well as offer prorated refunds.
Managed WordPress Hosting
wpenginelogo
WP Engine is a managed WordPress Hosting, which means that they will take care of all the maintenance and technical issues involved in keeping your WordPress site running as fast as possible. Managed WordPress hosting definitely costs more than the regular shared hosting, but sites run faster, are more stable, and you worry less.

Logo Design

99Designs Logo
99designs.com is a crowd-sourced design community where you can run a design contest. My clients and colleagues have used this with great success in cases where they do not have a graphic designer available to them. They tend to be good for logo designs.

 

Online Scheduling

Schedulicity
Schedulicity has excellent customer support by phone or email, as well as a 30-day no credit card required trial. They also offer very good webinars to get you going and video tutorials are also available.
