    While I wouldn't exactly give a glowing recommendation to the company I host with, they are cheap, and I'm on a dedicated server that I have total access to. While, for the most part, this is a good thing, I do miss having Tech Support at times, especially when I'm going through mail issues (like now.. **sigh**).

    Be careful of the shared hosts but if you go with them it is your choice.

    Yes I did. 3.7.0 and it has been up for well over a year with no issues at all. I've purchased v4 but I'm going to wait until I can get a style I like before I install it.

    it's best to manage your backups yourself
    there are several ways to run automatic database backups once a night

    and ps I wouldn't use godaddy hosting even if they paid ME for it

    check out webhostintalk to research your host

    well they do but you pay extra for it.

    most do weekley or biweekley backups


    well my old host did nightley backups problem was they kept having server issues and even the backups got corrupted. thats why they are my old host. my advice stay away from Optiquest

So to get a option of backups was going to cost an additional $180USD a month.

    Use hostgator the are cheap and effective.. Godaddy's hosting is rubbish when it comes to complicated scripts.. one would have thought they would have picked up their game my now. Anyways play it safe and go else where.. godaddy = not a good option for VB.

    Good Luck

    thats highway robbery.

    as a webmaster i do my own backups of my site. i save it to HDD, FD and CD and if i had more space i would put it in my drop box account
