Which Web Hosting
 
Hi, Im thinking of getting some Hosting to put up my site.
Im not an expert, Just a beginner...starting to learn CSS and working in Dreamweaver. My objective is for my site to have Panoramas here is a link to some panos I have up:
http://geoimages.berkeley.edu/worldw...eODonovan.html

I like making panoramas and photgraphy in general...si Ide like to include these in my site, as well as a image galary and some examples of work I do in Photoshop, cinema4D,etc....

Now Im looking for the right web hosting for me but dont really know what to go for. IM IN SPAIN....so Ive got this link that Ive found...its in Spanish but by looking you might get what they offer...theres 4 diferent options, WHICH one do you suggest is suitable for me?

I know a guy who runs a business here in Spain and his hosting is in the states....should I look outside of spain, does it matter..any suggestions?

Cheers!

you need some high bandwidth allowances as images are your main focus so every download will add to the bandwidth

also you may need some server side scripting support but its early days so if you choose a high bandwidth option you can add to it later

bandwidth is not an issue these days unless you deal with a fairly successful website (+10k visitors a day). Site5.com has an 'uberplan' at $5/m.

Ummmm...Ive had a look at loads and cant decide! Should I go for one in Spain or it doesnt matter.... Could someone specify a specific one, Ive had a look at Site5.com: It offers masive Disk Space and Bandwidth compared to the spanish link I posted? How come?? Its about 7 euros/Month.....

Im afraid I need more help...:(.............Dont understand how the bill you..every month/year/termly??:confused:

That was my specific recommendation.

It's a good deal for small/medium websites. They deal with volume.

Just ask them, most likely they have this info on their website ;) Most of them deal with CCs, most charge monthly.

Ok, sorry....Does site5.com give you a free Domain name or do you have to pay for it.....?? Im probably gonna go for this..but Im thinking of going for the 12 month or 24 month plan....

Register new domains with Site5 for only 8.88 per year!
Register, transfer and manage your domains (www.yourdomain.com) via your Backstage account

Hi Africano

Quote above from Site5 website. Looks like you can regsiter your domain once you've purchased a hosting account. It's not free though

http://www.site5.com/hosting/feature...domain_manager

Link above if you want to check it out yourself.

What domain name are you thinking of using??

EDIT: WOW!!..... **You will be charged this amount immediately: $177.60
(24 months @ $7.4 with FREE setup)** Dont understand, dont I pay monthly?? IM SORRY, i might be a bit thick but i cant see why they charge me that amount....its quite expensive 100 odd euros.

Corrosive you said something around 35-50 Pounds....?
Domain name....www.virtualelche.com...

I use these guys...

http://www.fasthosts.co.uk/

for Corrosive Online. I bought it a while ago for another project but you have to pay extra for a MySql database which is something I needed. Wished I'd read the small print to be honest :( . Anyhoo, I use a different host for that project now. The cost of basic space on fasthosts is 3.99 per month...12 months is 47.88. I thought it was between 35 and 50 per year so was about right. This is not a recommendation as such as there are extra charges for some of the stuff you'd really expect to be included, but it is reliable as far as I have found.

You will be pleased to know that the domain name you want is available! :grin:

How about Claralight hosting package ?
Clara.net
29.99 a year (includes domain name)
Web mail.
Online site maintenance.
And available on the phone, really helpful.

I used to use Clara a lot... I use Media Temple now. (Multi site and reseller tho, you don't need anything like that)
