This website was built on the Genesis Framework using the eleven40 Theme by Studiopress. They have some beautiful themes, wonderful to work with and a fantastic support forum that is monitored by Studiopress professionals. I have never waited more than 48 hours to get an answer to a question – and that was on a holiday weekend.
Check out all their themes – and if you get the Pro package you get all the new themes as they come out (I’m a theme fanatic)
For autoresponder and mail service I really like Aweber. Grow your list and drive your sales up. If you aren’t familiar with how an autoresponder works – just fill in the form and take one out for a test-drive.
AWeber’s email marketing software makes it easy.
Learn how they can do it for you, too.

GoDaddy doesn’t have a CPanel and that makes it a little less ‘user friendly’. I have had a hosting account with them for years though and that is where I purchase the bulk of my url’s. They have a great price on domains and have the “Website Tonight” service that if you are unfamiliar with how to build a website – this can give you something rather nice and quick.
PLUS they have awesome bulk pricing and Go Daddy Bulk Domain Registration search ability – which means – if you have a hundred different names you want to search to see if there are already domains… GoDaddy has the tool!
Hosting company’s with CPanels that I am rather fond of are:
Bluehost who I like the people who answer all my foolish questions and never call me a dummy even when I screwed up. They have SEO tools and specials you get just because you are hosting with them like free shopcart and access to set up a remote phone number service.
PLUS hosting comes with a free domain AND you can host unlimited domains on the one account. All for a really, really low price.
HostGator who’s additional resources like SEO tools and free themes, templates and are also very friendly and helpful. As well they have a email service and lots of useful stuff. No contract, no setup fees, Excellent pricing deals. I find that their server is really reliable too.
HostMonster hosting comes with unlimited hosting space and you can host as many domains as you want to on the one account. It comes with email and unlimited transfer and free search engine submission. They also have Free Site Builder.
My Hosting – another economical choice with unlimited domains and transfers as well as unlimited hosting space. Several packages to chosoe from starting at very low prices.
Network Solutions has a really cool all in one deal. I’ve worked on some websites using the Network Solutions platform and was impressed with the ease of setting up a eCommerce site. Once you get the swing of it you can add or remove pages and products plus change pricing at whim. The support staff were great too – I’m always ‘experimenting’ and end up making a mess sometimes. These guys bailed me out more than once.
