View Full Version : What's Up With Verizon?

I spent an hour with our current webhosting service (Verizon) trying to find out how much extra it would be to switch from a Unix to Windows server so we could run ASP.net. Do you believe no one could answer my question? So, to those of you out there running your web site on a windows server, if anyone is willing to share an approximation of how much they're paying, I would be very grateful if you would be willing to share a ballpark figure of how much it's costing.

It doesn't have to be the exact amount -- I'm just trying to get an approximation to find out if it's worth it for us to switch from UNIX to windows.

Sheez......I can't believe Verizon. I had the same trouble when I had DSL connection issues with our home account...That took months to figure out all that was required was for Verizon to add a splitter. But, I digress.....Thanks for letting me vent.

The price you pay will of course depend on the features you require. That said, I have one of my sites hosted on a Windows server with WebHost4Life (http://www.webhost4life.com/hosting.asp) on their Basic Plan, and pay $4.95 per month.

I've seen similar threads to this one in other forums where the price of Unix hosting was compared to Windows. The general consensus seems to be that there is very little difference in price where similar features are compared on each.

My biggest question to you would be, what are you hoping to accomplish by making the switch?
