    I finally bought the domain name (through 1&1) although was close to purchasing from 123-reg

    What is the best deals for hosting you lot have seen?

    I'm after something with a decent web builder provided (I lack web design skills) and bot-free forum installation

    Wanting to spend upto £10 a month. Is this possible?? I've seen unlimited hosting on EBay lifetime price of £5 etc. Are these any good or just scams? Thank you

    Oh, sorry. I use GoDaddy. Seems like a reasonable price to me, but then, I didn't check to see if they had any web design tools. I did all the work by hand and just needed a place to host my sites. I think Yahoo has some sort of web design tools. You also might want to check with your ISP. Many of them make it really easy to post a site to the Internet.

    Hmmm, that does look good. And hardly ever is cf down but I would think SI has the bussiness plan, I wonder if the basic plan is just as good with up time.

    Yeh they look good,... Until you're ready to order and are at the final page, it appears as if they take the full years lump sum off your credit card/debit or whatever method you choose to pay with. I was just going to choose the basic hosting, when I went to the payment page it says Total £96.53 I would rather pay it up monthly. Not sure whether that means the total "through out time" that you will pay by paying monthly for a year or 2, or whether it means that's what comes off instantly. I will have a more in depth look at the others

    A bit of a newbie question :oops: What's the difference between Linux hosting, and others? I want to host a regular website, what would I need to select?

    The main thing would be what language do you intend to use.

    I've employed several web guys and none have had any issues with linux hosting. It's all set up for you and you have Apache etc.

    With the Layershift package you get ftp access and a Plesk control panel so don't see there's any isseu with it being Linux.

    All my external servers are Linux based, sorry if I've picked it up wrongly my comments where only directed to the OPs last post (sleep deprivation is killing me :( ) although i would still say it depends on what language the OP intends to use.

    It wont matter if it's windows or linux, you won't get to see the nuts and bolts of the server, you will be on a server with whole load of other customers, however linux based servers can be more stable and he hosting costs less than the windows alternatives :D
