We love Skyscanner for comparing prices and planning long trips. You can search for the cheapest price by month, by year, or even search for the cheapest price from your destination to any location on earth. Highly recommended. Skyscanner often includes discount airlines that many major search engines miss.
Google Flights is still one of the travel industries best kept secrets. It lets you search a month’s worth of fares at a time, and is usually accurate. All prices include taxes. However, it doesn’t have the cool Everywhere search or the Flexible? discover destinations search that shows you a map of everywhere you can fly and prices you’ll find on Skyscanner.
We were with HostGator early on, but quickly outgrew them, so we switched to reseller hosting at Namecheap for 2014 and 2015. They were a great alternative before we grew big enough to need VPS hosting.
Since then, the blog’s grown a lot, and we’ve switched to KnownHost – Hosting. We’re thrilled with them – they’ve made our websites so much faster! Before we switched, we were constantly getting errors our website was down, but we very rarely get one now. In fact, I can’t remember the last time our website was down.
The KnownHost website seems a little technical, but don’t be turned off. They handled everything from our transfer to ongoing maintenance, and they’ve been helpful and quick to respond whenever we’re reached out.
Update: We’ve been with KnownHost for over three years now, and still love them. Support is fast and responsive, and downtime’s almost non-existent.
