    Default Secure email webhost

    I'm bumping this up to the top again, as I'm finally setting up a website. Having had issues with not receiving customers emails with my current provider, I'm keen to get this right with a host who provides 100% reliability, someone I can phone if things go wrong, good tech support and is fairly easy to use.

    As this is a fairly old thread, I'm interested to know if you are still happy with your provider, or have moved on elsewhere.

    Any recommendations please?

    Thanks in advance.xx

    I'm still with site5. They still give great support and never get grumpy or snitty with me when I do blindingly stupid stuff like spell my website wrong

    I am with 1and1 - for domain hosting. I have recently switched to Weebley for web hosting as I can't afford to get my site done by someone at the moment.

    If you want a complete package, you could also try Octopidesign.com - Dave Boon, will sort out abosolutely everything you will ever need. This is their generic email - I will be using them when I get going in the right direction

    I'm confused (as usual).

    I thought website hosting was just the company that put your website on the internet. I know sometimes they also host the domains (all my domains and site hosting are with site5 now that my old contract with goDaddy has expired) but that your website was made separately (either DIY with web building software or pay someone) or via the usually basic DIY website software some of them have.

    I thought weebley, 1and1 and companies like that just rented out customisable webspace, so you stick your stuff on and tweak it a bit but they own the actual site and domain name.

    This is from when I looked into it a few years back. I'm curious if things have improved or got cheaper.

    Oh, I am more confused than most - I didn't even know you could switch an Ipad off manually until I read about it!

    I point my website through Weebly so I can use my own purchased address (domain host - could be anyone you want to transfer it to) so then the web site itself (?webspace) is being driven through (web host) weebly after doing some back end direction pointing (got a bit technical after a while). It is all a bit too much, but at least weebly is the closest thing I can get to a site that is more 'what you see is what you get' for show and tell, fun and all things signposting with minimum knowledge of html or having to work out page sizes and so much more.

    I use bluehost, very cheap and scaleable should your audience grow. They will try and cross promote things like SEO but use these sales conversations to learn more about what you can do on-line
