Okay, I know this will sound like a sales pitch, but...I'm quoting that
which I pay for my Web site. It is true that I recommend this hosting
company to my clients, but that's only because I've had a very good
experience with them:

BlueHost - $6.95/mo period. No Gold or Platinum or 404 service level or
sales packages. If you select a 6-month account, it costs more. If you go
with a 12-month account, it costs $7.95/month. You can get to everything
from the control panel; no need for personal breadcrumbs or such. If you
site is down or you have problems with it, you can actually call a toll-free
number and actually speak with an actual person who is in Utah.

Of course, these are shared servers. If you need a dedicated server, you'll
have to find another provider (and pay scads more).

Cheers - and Good Weekend to All!

|I recently purchased my domain and hosting package all from
|GoDaddy. If you host with them, they will give you a basic
|404 and Under Construction page. Depending on the Windows or
|Linux package you choose, you'll get more free options with
|the Linux package, and that is what I went with.
|I have found that with GoDaddy you need to create your own
|breadcrumbs to remember how to get to certain features: file
|directory, email manager, domain manager as all site
|management aspects are not on one control panel. What is nice
|is that you have a browser based HTML editor (raw and basic)
|but nice for on the fly stuff.
|You also might want to see if they have specials on domain
|registration and email packages too when you speak with your
|Account Rep. It'd also be good of you to speak with someone
|to show you how to access your site management points. I
|should have done this when I started my site up but I figured
|there was no fun in that.
|Also, if anyone has a site managed and ftp connected through
|Dreamweaver, I'd like to see your settings. I can't get my
|ftp hooked up there even after I looked through the FAQ's.
