Topic: Website hosting

  1. #1

    Website hosting

    Some of you have their own website. Nice. Some of you have this hosted at something like Papa..... or similar. I can't find the name. All I understood that it was free or for some very modest fee.

    I am thinking of hosting requirements as follows:

    • several Gb's space,
    • guestbook facilitites,
    • database,
    • paypalled e-commerce environment,
    • domain name free to choose and free of charge,
    • contract period at yearly basis.

    Please give me some info you gathered or are familiar with in the reply,

    I had an experience of free hosts going down and never coming up again, all my data lost in the depths of the world wide web of course. That happened to me twice so I think maybe it's better to pay a small fee every month and be sure your website will still be there next time you want to access it.

    My music website is on 1and1.com. I have had an account with them for quite a while. They are inexpensive. They have many tools that you can use to build your site.

    The only downside is that they outsourced their technical help department to India and it's difficult to understand the dudes who answer the phones. No...it's almost impossible to understand the dudes who answer the phones.

    Right now, I am on DreamHost.com for my websites. They give you a decent amount of hard drive space, a decent amount of bandwidth, domain registration, yearly payment, and one-click installs which includes Zen-Cart (comes with PayPal payment module).

    I use GlobalSpace.com and am very happy. They are similar to the others mentioned already. I'm very happy with them.
