    As I said, A business card is a face-front representation of your company. Think about how you want that card to represent you. If you want to look like a free internet template, have at it.

    See the little x in the upper right corner. Click it and it should go away. If it doesn't, call Adobe. Seriously. Pick up the phone and call them.

  • Site Hosting Recommendations

    I'm looking for a good web/domain hosting company. I read good reviews and bad reviews of a bunch of them. Does anyone have any hosting companies they'd care to recommend, and why?

    I've been using site5 for the last few years. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a host, even without giving out a referral link that gets me $20. You can give it a 30 day try if you'd like. I do however recommend staying away from Go daddy.

    Anyways, I chose site5 because of customer service/support if needed, the re-seller options, price (about the same as most I suppose), up time.

      I would recommend any hosting company other than Godaddy.
      If on the other hand, you enjoy having your rectal sphincter regularly polished, your innards ripped out, rubbed in pink insulation and put back in then please, use Godaddy.

      (I posted that bofore I saw Obsidian's post, lol! I use WebHostforASP.com only because I use DotNetNuke.)

        GoDaddy didn't even make the top 20. I wish my boss hadn't gone with them, but he's still stuck in the 90's.

          I assume that you're looking for a small, low-cost, shared-server environment rather than a VPS or dedicated. HostGator always gets top marks, and my experience has been good. I've also used LunarPages for several years, and never had anything but good, dependable service and up-time. In addition to recommending against GoDaddy, I'd also recommend not using DreamHost. I used DreamHost for two or three years, and just kept having nuisance issues with them, like undelivered email and ongoing downtime problems.

          Look at what comes with the different packages. For example, cPanel can come in very handy, as can extra email addresses, multiple domain & database support and special server configurations. It's a hassle to move a site, so if you need, say, ionCube or GD support or some other extension or version of software, it's nice to know ahead of time.

              So far no one's mentioned InMotion, which seems to have good online reviews..... by people I don't know, lol.

              Rach, better. I'll 'splain in the chain thread.

                I can vouch for InMotion. I have all my sites through them. Never had a problem.

                  Gromit, let me know when you get enough advice so I can close this thread. It's already starting to attract spammers.

                    Kool, I guess if this attracting spammers, go ahead and close it out.

                      Any question like this attracts spammers like flies on you know what. But we like to make sure you have what you need before we close it. Are you all set?
