Here is a list of resources and tools for your website building and online business needs. I get asked to provide recommendations in the following resources all the time: Web hosting, email marketing, shopping cart companies. These are all reputable companies, and I have personally used many of them with great results. However, please do your own due diligence by checking out their websites, etc. as we all have different requirements for resources that we use.
