Dear readers,

Happy May! Can you believe we're already into summer? Here in the Midwest United States, it seemed as though we went straight from winter into summer, with very little spring-like days to enjoy. Here at WHSR, we've been hard at work as always to bring you new information and tools to make your sites the absolute best they can possibly be.

One big change you'll likely notice is our home page.

You'll notice we've listed the 10 best web hosting services for 2018 right on the landing page, so they are easy to find. You can also link to all of our reviews and compare the ones that look interesting to you. This new information and tools will allow you to make an informed choice.

Learning Tools

One thing we like to offer here at WHSR is opportunities to learn things that will help you with your own blogging and business endeavors. With that in mind, we published a couple of articles in May that you'll find helpful.

I had the opportunity to interview Boris Sokolov and Peter Ivanov of Microweber and learn the secrets to their success. They offer some really valuable insights for anyone starting a blog or business online.

Microweber – the easy way to create a website.

Website Owner Tools

We also offer a number of website owner tools. We've published both new articles and revamped articles in May that you'll find useful as a website owner.

Check out Jerry Low's Three Easy Ways to Create a Website: Step-by-step Beginner Guide. He delves into everything you need to know to create a website, even if you aren't tech savvy.

We've updated our Web Hosting & Domain 101: How Hosting a Website Works guide so you can fully understand how everything works together and figure out how to get your own site running smoothly.

Finally, Christopher Jan Benitez shares a survey on the Best Web Development Tool for Online Businesses According to 24 Experts.

We hope you enjoy these new and revamped resources. In June, we'll cover even more topics that will help you take your website from start to success and beyond. Stay tuned!
