    web hosting services

    Can I have your pro / con comments about any web hosting services you have had experience with?

    My friend is going to start up an online sportswear business -- which eventually will probably need 1GB+ storage space, some server-side scripting and database (maybe PHP and MySQl), shopping cart, etc.

    She is thinking about using Host Gator or possibly GoDaddy. The initial splash will just introduce the brand name/label/wholesale collection so she won't need the server-side tools right away.

    I specialize in showcase galleries for artists, illustrators, photographers and the like who only require an "online presence" to show samples of their style and are not conducting an online business. For those "starving artist" clients, I have found DotEasy's $0 hosting (http://www.doteasy.com ) very satisfactory.

    Generally you get what you pay for and Godaddy should be avoided. Hostmonster works great for me.

    thanks

    Thanks Fumigator. Your input was appreciated and noted. For years, I've had a "bad feeling" about GoDaddy (people getting stuck in templates, etc.) but, in a recent conversation, a web coder suggested their shopping cart template might be a good starter.

    Free web hosts will ensure that your website is down for 20% of the time , now if you are doing business , it might mean lot of loss , you can check review of top ten web hosting service providers at website like http://aplis.net/ ,etc .

    yeah godaddy will put tons of limitations, so be careful if you decide to go with them. I have used tons of web hosting companies and in the end settled with Chime Host. I started out with free web hosting but i was limited on space. Chime Host gave me unlimited space/bandwidth for $4.95 per month. So far everything is fine. I am currently hosting a blog and forum with them. Don't have that much traffic but hopefully soon
