Hosting – Fatcow
100% of my sites are running on Fatcow. Their hosting speeds are great, customer service is on point and provide tons of 1 click features for customers such as worpress insalls, coppermine galleries etc. This blog would not exist if I did not purchase a domain and hosting from them. I definitely recommend them! Here is a more indepth review of the hosting plan as well as a walkthrough to install wordpress.
Online Backups – Carbonite
Carbonite is my go to solution for offline backup. I supplement my network back with this online backup. You get unlimited storage and its simple to set it up. Install it on the computer and select all the files that you want to backup and you’re set. I highly recommend Carbonite for your backups.
WordPress Themes – Themeisle
Themeisle provides tons of themes and plugins. They are both updated periodically and provide great designs. Installation is not complicated at all. Upload the zip and activate. Simple, secure and great to look at. I highly recommend them to my family and friends and use them for clients if you’re in the market for new themes.
Anti Malware (Home Version)
I use and recommend Malwarebytes Endpoint Security. Malwarebytes has been the most effective in protection of ransomware alerts. Also helps block out any zero day malware on your computer. With the endpoint software always running it can stop access to malicious sites from downloading any malware or redirects. I highly recommend!
