Our Preferred Suppliers
Who we choose
At Little Fat Birdie, we only choose the best brands to work with. If you’re looking for reliable and high-quality products with great support staff, you’ve come to the right place. Before we choose a service for our customers, we examine their capabilities and reviews, and compare their products to others on the market.
We are affiliates of some of the services below. Being an affiliate with these trusted companies means that we may receive a portion of, or benefits from, purchases made after following links – importantly, this does not increase the price of the products! You should know that by linking ourselves to these services that we trust and use these services ourselves. At Little Fat Birdie, we will only recommend products we use ourselves.
Below, you will find our most trusted suppliers: Namecheap for domain name registrations, SSLs.com for SSL Certificates, FastComet and Siteground for web hosting, Mangools for SEO tools, Elegant Themes for our website design tools, and WPMUDev for the premium plugins that power our clients’ sites.
Namecheap is our ‘go to’ domain registrar for both our websites and the sites we develop for our customers. Namecheap has a bulk-search facility which is extremely useful when brainstorming a new website name or when several domains are to be registered. Check out your next domain by filling out the search field!
When our customers are looking to show that they are a trusted brand online, we turn to SSLs.com. The SSL certifications offered by SSLs.com include basic SSL, business SSL and advanced SSL certifications. Their verified SSL certificates include badging which can be displayed on our clients’ sites to prove they can be trusted.
We use two different hosting companies depending on the needs for our clients. Both of these companies provide high quality products at reasonable prices, and with great support!
Our first option is FastComet. With a great range of plans, incredible uptime and support services that are quick and responsive, FastComet ensures that we are able to develop, design and maintain websites with minimal outages and at a low cost to our clients. FastComet has servers all over the world which helps our clients stay General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) compliant and their data close.
