Comparing Web Site Hosting Plans

I keep getting these emails: Choose the web hosting plan that works for you. I just keep saving them, because I want all the resources I can get when it comes to choosing a web hosting plan. I want to be able to compare the plans and hopefully make the right decision to get just what I need, when I finally decide to do it.

Tonight I was browsing Network Solutions and their web site hosting plans. They have plans from Standard to Pro, and they all include tons of storage space and lots of monthly bandwidth. All plans also include a free domain name with annual purchase, 24/7 real person customer service, 99.9% uptime, tons of email boxes, an award-winning online web site builder tool, and more. These are the kinds of things I would expect from a web host. I worked on a website redesign last year, and I just want to say that I am not at all thrilled with the host we are using. Basically, with them I get ftp and FrontPage extensions. They provide email boxes and forwarding, too, but that's about it. Network Solutions would have been a better choice just based on the options I have already listed, and there are more.

Network Solutions is the recipient of the Find My Host Editor’s Choice Award for June 2008, and they'd love to be your web host. Check them out and read all the features offered if you're looking for a web host.
