I want Frontpage 2002 ext
50 - 100 mb Storage
MPEG or Windows media streaming
Multiple user accounts for editing and at least MS Access
Good traffic quota
Under $80 per month

Any good hosts you know of?

And no ads! So I don't want freebie hosting.

Have a talk to Managed Internet Solutions (http://www.mis.co.nz/)

This is run by a pressF1er and the pricing seems to be quite good. I'm looking at it myself in the not too distant future

Try http://www.nzwebsite.com/

They and their servers are based on Auckland's North Shore.

Their price rate are in your range as well http://www.nzwebsite.com/welcome_ecommerce.html

I have a Forum using Access2000 db on their server.

Hi. Thanks for the punt Dippy. MIS can sure accomodate the bandwidth required by the streaming vid/audio at a price under his limit.

Greg, perhaps you could design a counter for your sites that has a small ad for MIS as part of the design?? I'm currently trying to find a decent counter but unfortunatly it appears most free ones die after a period of time as the providers become overloaded.
The one I have on my site appears to be going the same way now and so I need to replace it soon.
If you offered a counter as part of your service not only could you use it to advertise your services but it would save me some hunting??

Hey Dipstick, I was once looking for a good counter for my site then I found this one at http://www.hostedscripts.com/ , go there then choose the text counter on the left hand site. That is the one I use on the main page of my site http://computerlinks.hostnz.co.nz It has the advantage of being really fast to load as opposed to graphical counters.

It's free to join and there seems to be no restrictions for users, I have had absolutely no problems with it so far.

Michael, the school that I work for uses Webfarm (www.webfarm.co.nz) as our hosting provider. They are based in New Plymouth. Great prices and service.
