I need advise?
I am a business owner and have built a site using WEB PAGE MAKER , i know its not the best tool to design with but i dont need an elaborite site. My intensions with this site is to have a client fill out an order sheet, and email me for information.
There are so many hosting services and jargon that i dont understand, i am overwhelmed! Can anyone suggest a good hosting service for my site. I am running windows xp. My site has 6 pages.
I looked at many top 10's.. i have no clue and want the professionals input.

Hi samuel77, first of all your looking in the wrong place. Those top ten lists are just paid advertising. Your right, it's an overwhelming thing to research. It sounds like your requirements are small, which is good. You only need a small plan, couple hundred MB's space and a couple GB's bandwidth. I would say to stay away from the hosts offering 1000GB's space and 10,000GB's bandwidth or anything that mentions unlimited. Look around these forums and try and come up with a list of say a half dozen or so hosts that you feel fit your needs. Do some research on each host and look for reviews both here and Google. No reviews are not a bad thing as if things are going well, most people won't bother telling others about it, same as bad reviews, there's always two sides to each story. Next, ask plenty of questions here about each host on your list, then contact each host a few times. This will tell you the response time of each host and the types of responses you'll get. Get your list down till you feel you've found the best host for you. You don't need much, I wouldn't worry to much about all the fancy terms. Get a small plan with a few email addresses and good support and that should get you started. If your site takes off, you can always upgrade to a larger plan easily. Best of luck, it can be a tough decision and a lot of work, but take your time and do it right and you'll be happy in the long run.

Try to submit a ticket before you make any order. If the response is quick and good then you can consider about it. Good luck!Albert
