On this page I will highlight all of the software and tools I use daily, aside every recommendation will be a hyperlink to read my review of why I use that particular product or service including various step by step guides and buyer guides.

I will also make recommendations on products I have previously used and what I have replaced them with and why.

Web Hosting

Scalahosting

10th November 2016 Update

I’ve found quite a few people on the Facebook group asking what hosting to get, as you can read below I am with Scalahosting and recommend them 100%. I don’t do this for huge commissions (in fact they offer very small commissions compared to hosts such as Bluehost or Hostgator), I am not recommending them for the cash, I am recommending them because they’re simply the best I have tried and right now they have a 50% off deal which is crazy, especially considering I’ve spent $1,600 on my annual renewal only 2 months ago!

What Scalahosting Package do I recommend?

This really depends on how many sites you have, what they’re running on, how many visitors you get e.t.c so I can’t give specific recommendations as there are so many factors to consider.

However, what I will say is you should go for cloud hosting, they have 5 packages available so I am sure most of you will be able to find a package that will suit your needs.

Important: when you select a package and begin customizing it, be sure to select Lite Speed Web Server, especially if you run WordPress websites because I’ve seen a huge uplift in speeds since beginning to use LWS.

You can view all the packages right here.

Throughout the past 10+ years, I’ve used a variety of hosting companies, some which are still around (Hostgator, Godaddy, 1&1, Doreo, Bluehost, Hostnine) as well as those which may not be around anymore. However, for the past 3 years and counting I’ve been using Scalahosting, originally I signed up to their VPS Pro package and recently (25th August 2016) moved to their Cloud Enterprise package at a similar cost, but ridiculously more powerful! They are the only host I recommend and that is because they have excellent support, almost zero downtime and the servers are impeccable and very fast.

So, if you want a reliable, fast host with awesome support then I suggest you take a look at Scalahosting.

Domain Registrars

Godaddy

If you haven’t yet created a Godaddy account then even better, you can get some great deals if you are a new customer including a .com domain name for just $0.99. Godaddy have a large amount of coupons, but most of them are for new customers (at least the most beneficial), however having said that they are still my go-to provider for .com domains and I currently have more than 50 domains registered with them. I do not however, recommend any of their other services, including hosting. Just domain registration!

Namecheap

If you are looking for the latest domain extensions, anything other than .com then I would suggest going with Namecheap, they have some great offers and also cover a ridiculously large amount of domain extensions, including recent introductions such as .guide, .review and more.
