As a 15 year veteran of web design and programming, I can appreciate a site built as well as PinchHost.com. Alex has not only set up an elegant site, with a great user interface, easy navigation and several years of great blog content, but I admire the little things as well. The PinchHost business plan is one that is relaxed and effective in a world of automated junk hosting companies.

My years of design and programming at Finepoint Design has taught me to appreciate the beauty in simplicity and making something that is easy to use. Sites that are cluttered, hard to navigate, or just look like a 2 year old built it are almost a standard. I am a huge fan of WordPress because of its simplicity and clean interface.

Both platforms offer a great community that should be around for a long time.
