    Just signed up for a year with poweredby.com. So far they have lived up to their end of the deal. Promised instruction within 24 hours and they were there. I am going to upload my page this weekend. I will post the url to judge the speed (not the page - easy.. it is my first real page).

    Just a note for those still looking. I had another host, but after reading this board, I signed up at NEIT Solutions (http://www.neitsolutions.com). They have a plan with everything you can imagine at $5.95. Many more features than where I was and I'm going to save money.

    Thanks MadLawn for that great tip. I'm kicking myself that I was fleeced for so long with those other guys. How did you first find them?

    They were very quick setting me up too.

    So far, I have no cmplaints with poweredby.com. I am actually very impressed with the the connection speed for the fees.

    Here is my link is you would like to see the connection speed. Please dont mind the site. I have a ways to go with it.

    Your site loaded very quickly. I will probably go with Poweredby.com as well. I've emailed them with questions and they were very quick to get back. I'll post my final decison here and any site I get started as well.

    My opinion is the most important thing to look for in a host is support and knowledgebase.

    Just about anyone can spend a few thousand dollars and become a "host". Its the support and knowledgebase that seperates them.

    Remember, you pay for what you get.

    Just imagine if every single consumer in your market looked for one low price of $100 for year round full service. Or, $9.95 a cut....

    IMHO

    Agree. It is a catch 22....guys complain about "low ballers" then start search for the lowest in equipment, marketing, etc...
