Starting a business? You’re gonna need a website. And a website is gonna need hosting. If you want the flexibility of a full website (and one that doesn’t have an icky .wordpress.com in the URL), Bluehost is your go-to.

DIY website? WordPress is your best friend. And you’re gonna need a theme. Headway has a sweet drag and drop editor, and can be fully customized without knowing ANY CODING, which means total DIY customizability (though the editor takes some tinkering with, you can figure it out). It’s what I use. It’s also got some great benefits in terms of techy web stuff – but I’ll let you read about that on their site.
