We know it can be difficult for many people to navigate the technology marketplace, especially if technology is not your expertise. So we have compiled a list of vendors that we can personally vouch for. Some of these links will be “Affiliate” links which means we’ll get a little credit if you sign up using our link. Those links will be marked for the purpose of full disclosure.
You can rest assured that we would never recommend a service which we would be unwilling to use ourselves.
For domain names we recommend Namesilo.com, they offer very low prices, free WHOIS privacy (you have to opt in during checkout, but it is free), and a pretty feature-packed and easy to use account control panel.
We recommend Newegg.com for purchasing computers and computer parts. We have been using them for more than 10 years and they often have the best prices, their shipping and checkout process is consistent and high quality, and their customer reviews and “Editor’s Choice” programs are excellent guides to making the best choices.
For managed hosting, nobody offers better service or value than Pride Tech Design, but if you prefer to handle your own system administration you can save some money by choosing Unamanged Hosting. The best choice for Unmanaged Hosting is Digital Ocean. They offer low prices, high quality service and expertly maintained infrastructure. Just be warned, they do not offer any OS level support at all, so if you are not experienced in Linux System Administration you should use our Managed Hosting instead.
