Web hosting is a service that allows for posting content to a website or web page.

  • Bluehost Shared Hosting Choice Plus is the easiest, most economical way for brand-new websites to connect to the Internet.
  • GoDaddy WordPress Hosting Deluxe is an affordable managed WordPress hosting plan for a new or existing website that allows room to grow.
  • Dreampress Basic is an affordable managed WordPress hosting plan for a new or existing website that allows room to grow.
  • SiteGround is a premium-managed WordPress hosting service. The StartUp plan is hosting for a single website, and the GrowBig is for hosting for multiple websites. It is pricier than the other options but worth every penny. This is my preferred hosting service.

Logo, Favicon & Graphic Design

Visit Etsy or Fiverr to hire a talented and affordable graphic designer to create a custom-made logo, favicon, and/or custom graphics. Your design package should include the following file formats: PNG transparent, JPEG, and PDF.

A favicon is a small icon associated with a particular website or page in an Internet browser.

A high-resolution logo will look great no matter where it’s printed or viewed. A low-resolution logo may appear pixelated or blurry when printed or viewed on a large screen. For a logo to be considered high-resolution, it should have a minimum of 300 pixels per inch (PPI).
