The following is a list of resources useful to complete an online project. On regard to web hosting, software, domain names, design services and up to users interaction and productivity tools there are online plenty of options to evaluate, the best choice pretty much changes case to case. I often add new resources to this page so make sure to check back. When I have access to special offers I also list them here.
Some of the links on this page are referrals links, that means I will be credited with a small commission if a product or service is purchased after landing on their page from one of my links, the sale price will never be higher, may in fact be less thanks to an offer or special. I only advertise products and services which I use or I am aware that are good products. Also follow my twitter page for the latest offers.
