Tools and Resources

A list of tools and resources that we use or have used to grow our investing business.

Hosting and Domain

GoDaddy (Domains)

In order for visitors to find your site, you’ll need a website address (example: www.reiconversion.com). GoDaddy is one of the most budget friendly domain providers. Although we recommend their domain services, we do not recommend their hosting. Please see WP Engine for our hosting recommendation.
