I wanted to make sure that anyone looking for web hosting knew about this offer. It's good through Dec. 31st.
I made a thread about problems I had with Pappashop, and due to those problems, I ended up signing up for new hosting through Westhost, paying only $6.50 a month for a premium Business account with unlimited everything, and no separate domain renewal fees! Plus, since they also use cPanel, they transferred my entire website, all of my pages and images, and even my email history for FREE! Everything was transferred in less than twelve hours from when I put in the request.
Westhost's premium Business account includes unlimited everything (unlimited storage, unlimited bandwidth), a free dedicated SSL certificate, free shopping carts, my own dedicated IP, mailing list software (which was denied at Pappashop and a email cap per hour was instituted), and they even pay my domain renewals for as long as I'm a member.
Plus, their live chat help is on 24/7. Seriously, I chatted with them at 2am!
There's a deal on until the end of Dec, that if you buy two years hosting, you get a third year free. I paid $234 for three years, which averages out to $6.50 a month, and I'm saving even more because I won't have to pay my domain renewal when it expires next year (or the year after, or the year after that!).
So, it was a huge unexpected bill for me, but now I don't have to worry about paying for my website for three full years. Whew! (Merry Christmas to me! LOL)
