payment for registration.

- My wonderful, glorious, life-saving web host. A long time
ago....and a very long story ago....I tried another web host called True
Hosting. Well, there was nothing true about their hosting - it was a
horrid experience. Then came Annette - one of the founders of my
current host, Hosting Matters. Annette decided to start a web hosting
business after she, too, was infuriated by the people at True Hosting.
The result is a very professional and amazing web hosting company.
Excellent customer service...so many options for your web site...and a lot
of control is given to the customer. It's wonderful. If you
have a problem, they'll give you the answer. A+++
FutureQuest - my
previous web host. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, as well. I
still visit their forums when I am having a programming problem. I
recommend them without hesitation. (I left because I needed 3 separate web
accounts and I got a better deal with Hosting Matters...aside from that, I
never would have left Future Quest) Terrific web host.
ICDSoft - My daughter
and my father have their web sites hosted here. Unbelievably cheap -
Frontpage extensions, CGI-Bin, a mysql database, PHP....amazing. And
customer support - they are quick! If you are just starting out, you
might want to try them.
