    Need Web Hosting Advice

    Hi all,

    I am in the process of launching my own small online business and need some advice or recommendations for reputable web hosts. I prefer to pay $10 or less per month but I am weary of the gazillion number of options out there. I figure many of you have your own websites and may be able to point me in the right direction. I appreciate any input you can provide.

    I used Go Daddy. It's been OK. I forget what I paid, but it was negligable
    considering the use I get from it. I wanna say around $100 for a year of
    hosting and like $35 for the domain name (.tvs are more expensive than
    .coms - gofigure).

    I just checked them out again out of curiosity and it looks like they've got
    some good deals goin on. Just do it. You'll be glad you did.

    On the domain topic - if I buy a domain, but don't get actual hosting on server (if I already have one), can I just redirect from www.mysite.com to the index page I already have? For examle, if I have my stuff on http://www.blahblah.com/mishar and I purchase http://www.mishar.com, can I put a link there that would bring users to http://www.blahblah.com/mishar ?

    I would guess yes, but I'm not an actor. I just play one on TV.

    Seriously though, If you can purchase and/or transfer domains
    separately, I would think that would mean you can set it up so
    the new name points to the old site.

    Do a little research at webhostingtalk.com.

    You are right- there are thousands of options out there. You can find prices in your range with established hosting companies. Be wary of "hosting companies" that are really just resellers of larger companies. Do not expect a high level of service of $10 per month.

    That is no problem.
