TOOLS I USE

I have decide to create a resources page/tool I use page that you can always come to for all of your needs to learn what is needed in online business and escape the rat race life. (Inside you’ll find the tools and sites you need to get your online business up and running). I’ll add to it as I learn more, but you’ll notice that in the future I will reference this page quite often. I recommend bookmarking it for your reference and convenience. Enjoy!

1.Webhosting


Webhosting is the place where all the files (Images, CSS, coding) of your website will be placed, and when users type your domain name, they will be accessing those files from your web-server to their browser in the form of website.

If you want to host any website, you first need webhosting. Below is one of the hosting companies I personally use in  my niche site except this one which use Hostgator as a hosting company.

SiteGround

If you’re looking for good value for money, then use Siteground web hosting. They offer a free domain name for life if you continue uses them. The best thing about it is that they also have 1-Click installation of scripts like WordPress and managed auto updates.

I recommend Siteground also due to Easy to use and great customer service.

2.Domain Registrars


Think of domain name as your house address and webhosting as your house.

Once you’ve signed up for hosting, you need to register for a domain name i.e. – a .COM, .NET, .ORG etc.

If you buying hosting from Siteground there is no need to buy domain name since they give you free domain name for life.

There is a lot of place to register for a domain name Namecheap, Godady, Hostgator and Namesilo.

NameSilo:Free Whois Privacy Forever.

The only domain registrar I’d recommend is Namesilo. A lot of people register their domains with GoDaddy.

The problem with GoDaddy is that GoDaddy has full control over your domain in cases where someone makes a complaint, like accusing you of spam. Once GoDaddy has control over your domain, it’s very unlikely you’ll get your domain back. That’s what makes Namesilo different.

FYI

3.Payment Processors


To start accepting payments from customers, you need a payment processor.

Below are some of payment processors am using;

Payoneer:

Payoneer is a good alternative for Paypal.  Also Payoneer is Quick, low-cost and secure solutions to pay and get paid globally.The first time you register, They will send you a free Prepaid Card which you can use to withdrawal in any ATM which accept MasterCard.
