Anybody can build a site. And nearly everyone has. You guys talk about who is getting this service or that service for less ... but what are you <U>giving up</U> with el-cheapo server space? What is the real cost. Do they stick a banner at the top of your web page promoting someone else's site? Kirby-No Do they put it on the bottom? Kirby-No With every email, do your customers read an advertisement from yahoo, aol, or somewhere else. Kirby-No Sometimes these distract from, even <U>subvert your message</U>.
As I said, I pay $8.25 a month for the same service others charge $25.00 for. Very good deal, for $8.25 I get:
- 45 MB Web Server Space
- Unlimited data transfer, uploads, downloads
- Remote FTP Access 24h/day
- 1 POP E-mail account
- Unlimited e-Mail forwarding
- Server Side Includes (SSI) support
- My own cgi-bin directory
- CGI and image library access (via password)
- Java Scripts library access
- Free maintenance software download and setup instructions
- Supports Microsoft® FrontPage 2000
- HTTP streaming audio supported

No pissin contest needed. However you are incorrect in the above statements. I placed the banners on my site myself. The "webmasters click here" is a link to http://www.icom.com, my server, if you click there and sign-up for hosting service I get $50.00 each time that happens, so that banner is there by my choice. The http://www.stamps.com banner is the same story, I get paid everytime someone clicks that banner and signs up. I have got paid several times from ICOM link and I just put the stamps link up so we will see.Originally posted by turfquip dot com
Nevermind, I just checked. Your source code reveals that in return for the low monthly rate, you are obliged to run a banner by some operation called servicebfast.com, and another by associates.com ... you know, the one that says 'webmasters click here'.
My point is that you [may be] enslaved by that low monthly rate. What if either of these changed the banner they feed you to a Scott's Lawn Service banner or similar ... don't say it can't happen.
