Default Re: Web site slow for anyone else?

Glad to help David. It's a worthwhile cause.

Re: Godaddy, I am about to move all my client sites over to them on a multi-domain shared account. Alot of my smaller clients have very little needs as far as super speed so we'll see how it goes. As for my company site, I have yet to decide on whether I am moving. How is their email service?

Re: Logos - I have no problem doing them all. Once we set a style they can all be derivative of that. From there we can make some subtle graphic changes to the sites if you want, so everything is cohesive.

Get through your technical hurdles first, then we can discuss it further. I have some ideas already.

The shared accounts as far as I have seen (I have 6 - 10 people with their own accounts) are pretty good.

I have had a few complain about tech support, but I have never had a problem.. I think if you know what you are trying to do then they can get you the answers quicker...

Their online email manager and control panel are great and I like them...

Unfortuntaly if you purchase a dedicated server with the simple control panel, you are stuck with squirell mail which is not one of my favorites..

In regards to email, they have a ton of options and add ons and you do have a cap on outbound mail... Say 250 emails a day.. This is to control outbound spam from their servers I believe.. (you can set the outbound and configure the email really nice in the email manager section)

Over all for the price and support they have been the best case scenerio...

Search the internet for coupons, usually you can add them to the order..

Currently they are offering the 20% off on certain services...

I just turned off the forum home page gallery and think that has been part of the problem with the shared server....

See if it is quicker then before....

When I upgrade to the new server I will also upgrade that gallery.... The posts are all still there and working

New server is in place and I'm moving things over....

I'm also waiting for my programmer to handle the database move...

There should not be any down time since we are going from this domain
to a new domain name...

There will however be some links problems because of this change...

Also, once I move the forum I will upgrade the software, and re-install some of the "hacks" I have installed on this one.

Then we should be......, wait, no jinx here... I'll shut up now...
