Hi all,

Im getting someone to build an ecommerce site for me and they said they would provide 1 yrs free hosting. Im a little unsure for a host of reasons with security (credit card payments), and issues if the site goes down the major ones.


What do you guys think?

I would be very cautious..
Do they offer an SSH certificate?
Are they a reseller or is this their own hosting service?

For an ecommerce site I would prefer to go with a major hosting service not a private one.
