I have read the email that the group ahs
submitted. Thank you all for your time and suggestions.
I used Dreamhost about 10 yrs ago and found them
very reliable. The only thing I disliked about the company (at the time)
is their customer support. I couldn't talk to someone 1 to 1.
I Had to email them. Some like this approach, I don't. Call me
As far as setting up my own server w/ one of the
computers I have lying around I would love to do this but the time to take to
learn this would bog me down. I might eventually learn how to do all
this. I know cars. This in itself is absorbing to say the least much
less trying to get a business off the ground.
I did look at linode.com. I will research
this idea at a later time. To me the page was written in Greek and I don't
have a translator, yet. :)
I went ahead and registered my domain and signed up
for a hosting pkg with a company called imotion:
I took the power pkg in which it seems that it
would suit my needs best. They even called me to confirm my order and
thanked me for choosing them. I liked that a lot. Personal touch
goes a long ways.
It's been a while since I had my own domain and
published pages but I think that the starter page is still index.html, is this
Again, thank you very much for the time in helping
me and giving me suggestions. All of your ideas are not forgotten.
Especially the do it yourself idea. On this note Tim asked some pretty
good questions such as static ip, bandwidth and setup. I too would like to
know so I might benefit by having my own server one day.

Greetings Lugod members:
I just received my business license and now want
to have my own piece of the internet real estate.
Does anybody have any preference as to a web
hosting company? I am going to start off very small, almost microscopic
so I don't need a lot of options.
What I will be doing is mobile auto repair as
well as having a small online store. I have set up a web site before but
am at a loss as to what options are needed for an online store.
Eventually I would like to have the capability of
having some sort of database. I love the security of Linux and would
eventually like to have my own static ip address using my own server with
Linux but as for now money is precious and sparse. Some might argue that
I can set this up easily. This is true if I have knowledge and time
in these areas.
