    Thanks Rob. Good info to know. I really appreciate your input. I'll most likely go with them as well.


    Take care, Gramps.

    A lot of people are mentioning paid services...


    Check into what free hosting you have with your Internet Service Provider! Most major providers still offer free web hosting as part of your services, and you don't have to use their own web-building tools.

    A follow-up to my posts about Host Excellence's web hosting service. I signed up the other night and have talk to and emailed their tech support a few times already. Excellent tech support!!


    P.S. Host Excellence and IX Web Hosting are the same outfits...so I doubt it would matter which one you choose.


    Thanks again for all the very helpful posts, Gramps.

    I have been using Host Excellence for a number of years and was the first to mention them in this forum when I dared to suggest that it was possible to upload the files of an iWeb build site rather than the whole folder.


    This was treated with derision by the "experts" in this forum and I was told that it was impossible even although I was doing it.


    I got the idea from the fact that HE allows you to create a root folder with the same name as the site in iWeb which, to my mind, makes them stand above all the rest along with their superior tech support.


    I have always encouraged new users to move their domain egistrations to HE as well since it makes admin easier and can save money.


    Recently I have helped quite a few people move their sites and domains to HE and the process is smooth and quick. Moving a domain registration from Yahoo via Melbourne IT took 72 hours - including propagation - which is a record for me.


    If anybody is contemplating using free hosting, an online web design service like Weebly or any form of "Cloud", read this first and be aware of the potential disasters.

    Agreed Roddy...tech support at HE has been very, very good.


    (Good to hear from you again by the way.)


    I too transferred my 3 domain names from another company to HE. Can't wait until everything is in one place. Should be very nice. And I'm still using iWeb as well, and will continue to use iWeb until it craps out on me.
