Best Web Hosting Provider
Web hosting is a very important part of web design. If you don’t have a good hosting provider, your site can suffer. These are the five sites that were nominated for best hosting providers for 2012.

Best Web Editor
Web editors are another tool that is critical to good design. While you can build a web page using just a text editor, it is more effective and efficient to create a web page using an editor made for the purpose. And this year, the four of the five finalists for Best Windows Web Editor and Best Macintosh Web Editor qualified in both categories! So if you use both Windows and Macintosh, you are covered with these great tools.

Best Twitter Account for Web Designers to Follow
Twitter is becoming more and more important as a way to get quick updates about your favorite software, suggestions for designs, and more. And many web designers use Twitter all the time. These are the finalists in the Best Twitter Account for Web Designers to Follow.
Best Website or Blog for Web Designers
Another way you can learn more about web design and building web pages is through blogs and other websites. There are millions of sites to choose from, but About.com readers were able to narrow it down to five finalists.

Best Website Design of a US Presidential Candidate
Since 2012 is an election year in the United States, I thought it would be fun to vote on which candidate has the best designed web page. The finalists are the five candidates still in the running as of February 2012. This is meant to be fun.
