Web Hosting Options

Since I just now made the change from Classic Blogger to the New Blogger, I suppose the next question is when am I going to make the move to a web hosting company. Obviously I'm not one to make any major moves quickly. I am looking at the options, though. I like comparing what I get for what price, but I've also come to realize that customer service is a big part of the whole package. If I'm going to jump into something, I like knowing there will be someone to help me if I have any problems.

Network Solutions web hosting has award winning customer service. They offer 24/7 technical support at no extra cost. That's good to know, because I hate being charged for technical support - hate it. Luckily I haven't had any major problems with Blogger so that I needed any kind of technical support because, does Google even do that? I guess you get what you pay for, huh?

Network Solutions doesn't offer free webhosting, but they do have several packages and prices, so you can get just what you need. Along with the hosting, you also get a free domain name, email boxes with spam and virus protection, free website building tools, and more. Standard web hosting starts at $9.96/month with an annual purchase.

I'm not ready to make the change yet, but I'll keep Network Solutions on my list.
