Website Tools

  • HostGator – Website hosting with easy to use, one-click automatic WordPress installation, and excellent customer service. I highly recommend Host Gator for your first website.
  • NameCheap – Very affordable site to quickly and easily register your perfect domain name. I registered www.observationwheeldirectory.com here.
  • BigStock: I haven’t had the luxury to be able to travel the globe (yet!) and photograph all the observation wheels so I’ve bought several pictures from BigStock and highly recommend using it if you need pictures.

I built most of the Observation Wheel Directory using only an Excel spreadsheet how??? Read my Excel help blog to find out!

Thanks for reading!
