Siteground is one of the top rated hosting companies in the world.
I had been using Hostgator for the last few years, however whenever I got a problem I was waiting 30 minutes minimum to speak with someone and I was feeling that they really didn’t value me as a customer. I have been using Siteground for the last few months and I am amazed at how quickly their customer service is. Normally I am put through to someone on live chat within 30 seconds, longest has been 2 minutes.
By signing up through my link for hosting you receive up to 60% off and a free domain name. Siteground are constantly updating WordPress which helps with keeping your software up to date for the latest security threats.

I use Name Cheap for all of my domain names as I prefer to keep all my domains in one place and the value I receive is worth every penny . Name Cheap gives you free Whois Guard for the first year, and has an amazing service. Whois Guard protects you email from a crazy amount of spam you will receive if you didn’t have it. Linking your WordPress site, setting up domain, email forwarding, or using any of the many other services offered by Name Cheap is very simple too.
There customer support is outstanding, whenever I have a problem I don’t understand I go to them on live chat and they find a solution.
Alot of my business I now outsource as I prefer to concentrate on the most important tasks within my business.
