Siteground is an amazing hosting company. Their customer service and technical support are very top notch. They explain things in a way that you can understand it and you’re not sitting there like you’re in a very boring class at school that you have no idea what the teacher is saying. Give them a try. Click on my link and you too could get started with hosting for as little as $3.95/month. Check it out. You really have nothing to lose.
This is the new and improved Microsoft Office and its subscription-based (no more discs to install your product) for your PC/Mac, tablet and/or your phone. Both monthly and yearly subscriptions are available. It still has the usual programs, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access, and more. It adds new features every month and you get 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage.
G Suite is very similar to Microsoft Office. I’ve listed the programs below, courtesy of David Gewirtz, who wrote an article for CNET called G Suite: Everything you need to know before signing up for Google’s office suite – CNET@Work: The pricing on G Suite is affordable by just about any small business and the benefits are pretty substantial.
- Calendar: because Calendar manages multiple calendars so well, it’s my go-to tool for blocking out time for projects
- Docs: G Suite’s word processor
- Sheets: a spreadsheet
- Slides: a basic presentation package
- Keep: a great, little note-taking tool
- Sites: a website builder
- Forms: a tool for building quick, but surprisingly powerful forms
- Hangouts: a chat tool sort of like Slack
- Hangouts Meet: hangouts video conferencing
If you read the article, G Suite is NOT free. You can use most of these programs for FREE, but there are benefits to having G Suite. I personally have G Suite and I use it and Microsoft Office. I use both for different things, and it helps keep me efficient.
