Fiverr Logo Design

Fiverr is the place to go when you want to hire a designer one-on-one. You can have a custom logo designed for as little as $5. As a designer myself, I was actually surprised by the quality you can get for such a low price.

Tailor Brands

Tailor Brands used to be a very solid choice, but has had some less-than-stellar updates recently. You'll get more flexibility and lower prices from other online logo makers. You might want to consider hiring a professional logo designer for $5 on Fiverr.

Wix Logo Maker

Wix Logo Maker is free to try, easy to use, and inexpensive. The AI won’t do all of the work for you, but the editor offers advanced customization options. I tested Wix Logo Maker's cheapest plan to see exactly what you get, and I definitely recommend this product to anyone who can afford to put the time in. However, if you don't have the time, patience, or eye for design...

Kamatera

Steady server performance makes Kamatera stand out against other VPS and cloud hosting providers. With its decent pricing plans and 30-day free trial, it's a great platform if you don't mind tinkering with your own servers. But if you're new to cloud and VPS hosting and there's no system administrator available, it might be a bit more of a challenge

Liquid Web

Liquid Web doesn’t aim to provide average hosting at bargain prices. It’s expensive, period. But if you don’t mind paying more to know you’re going to get high-quality service, Liquid Web’s premium hosting plans are worth it in my opinion. This host guarantees you the stability that shared hosting services simply can’t.

Nexcess

Nexcess is basically Liquid Web’s little brother, specializing in managed WordPress, Magento, and WooCommerce hosting. It has pretty interesting features, a fairly decent server infrastructure, and good support. There’s a lot to like, and it makes running an online WordPress-based business convenient. It’s still shared hosting, though, and it’s kinda expensive. Do I recommend...

Squarespace

Squarespace has been one of my favorites for a while, and writing this review has done nothing to change that. It’s not the cheapest option out there, but if you’re ready to build a site and even make some money off it, then I’d say go for Squarespace. It has plans both for personal sites and business users, and with a long list of interesting features, these plans definitely...

DesignCrowd

DesignCrowd is a pretty good option, all things considered. The user interface can be very confusing at times, but you may well decide that the quite reasonable prices are worth it. If you want to save even more money but you need a professionally designed logo, you should head to Fiverr and hire a logo designer for as little as $5.

Divi

Divi sets out to do one thing, and do it well: turn WordPress into a site builder. In that, it succeeds quite admirably. If you want to build lots of WordPress sites, Divi is absolutely worth the investment of time and money required. Those looking for a simple, cheap way to build their first website should probably look elsewhere first (like our list of the top website...

The Logo Company

While the prices may be a little higher than you’ll find with some other services, The Logo Company’s business model provides peace of mind, making it so much easier to click that Buy button. If you have the budget, the service is worth it. If you don't, I suggest hiring a professional logo designer for as little as $5 on Fiverr.

DesignEvo

DesignEvo’s premade logos are hit and miss, but it offers some major advantages: the advanced logo editor and the ability to make your own semi-complex logo from scratch. Even with fewer features, the focus and flexibility offered by DesignEvo make it a true contender in the logo maker scene. However, if you are looking for a professionally made logo, hire a designer for $5 on...

Looka

Looka is a reliable way to make good-looking logos. What it lacks in flexibility and fine customization options, it makes up for with beautiful default designs. But if you don't want to DIY it but still maintain that shoestring budget, I suggest hiring a professional logo designer for as little as $5 on Fiverr.

99designs

99designs is one of the best logo design services in terms of customer experience, but it’s also pricey. However, if you need a long-term design provider, it’s worth the extra money just for the headaches you’ll avoid. If you're looking to save some money, you should head over to Fiverr, where you can hire a skilled logo designer for as little as $5. With prices so low, you...

WordPress

WordPress.com is a powerful and flexible website builder that requires a bit of a learning curve, but it’s worth learning if your website is a big part of your business strategy. It’s best for sites with loads of content, especially if you're willing to upgrade to one of its top-tier plans.

Benchmark

Benchmark Email is a pretty darned good service overall, with a decent free plan and very few flaws to be found in its feature set. It’s good enough for beginners and experienced marketers alike, and it’s quite good at keeping spam off the platform. The only real disappointment was my customer service experience. Even then, your mileage may vary, as mistakes just happen...

Wix vs Squarespace 2021: Is the Popular Choice Really Better?

And why would you want to pay for something you can get for free? Well, I'm here to tell you why. Wix wouldn't be offering a free plan unless it had something to gain. If you need a...

Wix vs GoDaddy Website Builder 2021 – No Real Competition
