The tools and sites that made this possible

When I started this site I was by myself.  Now we have a team who contribute and make this site what it is, but back in the old days, I was alone.  And these were, and remain, the tools and sites that gave me the support I needed to grow Dandruff Deconstructed to what it is today.


I’ve tried too many hosts to remember but these providers have been the pick of the bunch

  • Liquidweb – I’ve used these guys for a couple of years and I can’t recommend the service highly enough.  Both the Managed WordPress and the Cloud VPS are top class.
  • Dreamhost – I used Dreampress for a number of years as it was simple, blazing fast and the price was excellent.  I did outgrow it in the end but for a beginner, I can’t recommend it highly enough.
  • MyThemeShop – My go-to place if I need a theme for my WordPress sites.  The free plugins they provide are outstanding too.
