One of the most daunting tasks for the poor volunteer stuck with getting their church’s website online is finding a web host. Especially one that offers alot of features at a low price.
May I both recommend, and warn you, of WebHosting Talk. A bulletin board with several forums, all related to web hosting. There you will find bargains … you will also find booby traps. That’s where I found my last host … you know, the one that went belly-up without warning.
What I did wrong, was jump at the first bargain I found. Instead, and what I suggest to you as well, spend a month there. Reading, asking questions, sending indivdiuals of either good or very bad experiences private e-mails. Get all the information, not only about what you want, but what you don’t want. Learn from the mistakes of others … like mine.
Certainly, WebHosting Talk can be either a blessing or a curse, it all depends on how you utilize it. That said, I suggest you give it a try when looking for a new place to host your site … or when you want to find out what features your current host is holding out on you.
