How small is this group?
What traffic do you expect?
Have you a domain name?

All of these are relevant questions.

I do run a web site for a golf club.

The golf club uses the same host you recommend.
Domain name is extra money.

25 POP
!00 M/B space

$149 per year.

The club comes up for renewal in Jan 2008.
I see no reason to change.

Good recommendation.

Do you really think I should consider you?:stare:

After this;
"Too much waffle before getting down to the actual issues. Paragraphs help you know!

Someone should appoint someone else to be their spokesperson.

Answers...

A) A compromise is ok if its kept simple, clean and reasonably search engine-friendly.

B) Yes get the domain name sorted asap."

We'll be looking to have the site hosted soon... by someone.

So what?

Do you need help with hosting only?

I just realised a person asked me why I was asking questions.

Perhaps I should not.

That way we could exercise by jumping to conclusions possibly.

Why not add to the original thread and keep people who want to help up to date. I would have put the ? in there but a person objects!

Do you really think I should consider you?Yeah, but I'd not take YOU on as a customer no matter how much cash you had to throw around. I'm fussy about who I do business with.

Whoops, sorry.
Trying to be tongue in cheek. It didn't come off.

I actually agreed, on reflection, your comments on my post. Just a tad blunt.

hosting prices here are really bad !

most hosts here , on most their cheap plans host your files in usa servers anyway so why dont directly pay the usa server (not that i like them) but most plans here in nz are way too expensive for what they offer.

check here:
hostgator.com
lunarpages.com

bang for the buck!!!
space in terrabytes, so as trafic plus unlimited databases ect.
just register co.nz domain somewhere esle and add it to this servers as add-on domain..and your done.

for real "hosted in nz servers" service you will pay with your liver and kidney here in nz.

just imo

Have you every had a site hosted by hostgator or lunarpages???

They oversell there server, which means slow sites & bad servers plus there support is not all that great! (Google them or take a look at: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/ & do a search for hostgator or lunarpages & you will see what I mean…..

Plus who needs a terabyte of space??? For there website? (Maybe if you have a very large site)


for real "hosted in nz servers" service you will pay with your liver and kidney here in nz.

It all depends on who you look at, yes there are a few NZ based web hosts that do charge an arm & a leg for hosting here in NZ, but there are other NZ based web hosts that don’t charge a arm & a leg for hosting here in NZ.

You just have to shop around & take a look at a web hosts that met you needs & offer a good price for those needs.
