For web design, hosting and domain must be purchased and setup ahead of time with a WordPress install. To keep things running really smoothly, we work locally with Andrew from Walden Pond Design for hosting. Andrew quite simply is the best when it comes to hosting. He is just an email or phone call away and has saved many clients sites from some horrible hacking disasters on other hosts. His customer service is above and beyond, it really pays to support local because you will never get the kind of service Andrew offers with any other host.
