Domains & Hosting
My preferred host is GoDaddy. Their prices are competitive and they have excellent customer service by phone (some hosts only provide email support).

Email Service Providers
Mailchimp is great for new business owners. They offer a free option for up to 2000 subscribers on your list(s).
Constant Contact has more features, but also is more costly.
Aweber has yet more features, and its price reflects that.
