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...

ActiveCampaign

ActiveCampaign is a solid choice for your email marketing needs. There are few flaws (though they matter), and if you want a service you can integrate into almost any tool chain, ActiveCampaign’s feature-packed plans have few equals. While its decent feature set could potentially be let down by the rather high prices on more expensive plans, ActiveCampaign still provides...

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...

Sendinblue

Sendinblue is simple and easy enough to use, and its generous free plan gives you unlimited contacts and allows you to send up to 300 emails per day. I liked the automation tools in particular, and the option of custom-coded email templates is always welcome.

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...

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.

How to Make Your WordPress Blog or Website Private [2022]

Whether you want to create a basic “Members Only” area of your business site, or just have a private blog for your family and friends to read, there are lots of reasons to lock down some or all of your website.

10 Best (REALLY FREE) Website Builders in July 2022

Several free website builders will let you design a decent site - but the one thing none of these builders will give you is a custom domain.

24 Best FREE Photoshop Plugins & Filters: Still Good in 2022

Photoshop hardly needs an introduction. People who have never touched a desktop know what it is. Its name is used as a verb, no matter how hard Adobe has tried to stop that particular trend. It’s the universal symbol of photo editing, retouching, and digital art. But hey, every program has its limits, and that’s why Adobe has encouraged the development of a massive...

Google Domains Review 2022: You May Be Surprised By Its Features

It certainly has the money lying around to do whatever it wants. And apparently what Google wants is for you to buy...
