I've begun a partnership with a website hosting company, dashhelp.com, which specialises in hosting for open source software such as Joomla, Drupal, Word Press and CRM programs such as Quickbooks, among others.
At dashhelp.com you will find good advice, links to software that works, and sources for all your requirements. If you can't find something to help you here, you can always make a special request, and they'll help you find what you're looking for.
Advanced Hosting - Maximized for Open Source
- Help yourself or your employees learn the most popular OS software
- Help to find what you need for your web development and web marketing
The best thing about dashhelp.com is the assistance and support they offer. They provide training as well as installation and setup to enable their clients to make the most of the programs they use.
If a client of mine wanted to run their website on Drupal, Joomla, or WordPress, I would advise them to host it on dashhelp.com because they would be able to help with tutorials in using the software as well as providing support if something goes wrong. No other host I know does that. The best of them would provide support if you got stuck or something went wrong, but not training in general use.
dashhelp.com also offers help and support for email marketing and Customer Relationship Management, as well as an ever-expanding library of useful articles which I have bookmarked for further reading. This effectively makes them a one-stop shop for websites run on an interactive or e-commerce basis, making your business administration mobile.
They are also seeking partnerships with people in related trades, so I'm recommending them to designers and developers who may need to offer hosting and support services to their clients as well as setup, customization and integration of those opensource software programs we offer our clients.
