I thought it would be helpful to set up a resource page with all the tools I use as I find them.
Some of them will be free tools that I have tested and used and are every useful, others will be paid tools.

I have tested many free utilities for manipulating images and files and I will try to list them here:
- Merge Word Documents into one DocSoSo
- For many conversions Convert Town is great. I use it constantly to convert my images to 72dpi for the web
I like name cheap because they give you who-is-guard free forever or equivalent. Who is guard is very good as you avoid spamming emails about your domain. NameCheap.com
After testing many hosts I have found everything I need at SiteGround
They back up the site automatically, they give you free SSL and they chat support is second to none.
