Web hosting

Post by Grummun » Tue Feb 06, 2007 5:20 pm

I was thinking about trying to do a little for-profit web hosting. Those of you that have investigated/used such a service, what features do you regard as essential? What's nice but not required? What kind of monthly fees were you seeing?

Welp, when I was partnered at Infinity all my stuff was free, but nothing was essential to me other than my e-mail and EC1. ;) Very few residential accounts took advantage of the free web hosting. Businesses wanted their sites hosted along with mail, but they didn't want to be responsible for any of it so we only used the features essential to get the job done.

Of course, back then you didn't have all those cool admin panels like you do now, but i'd imagine the basics would get you by, php, mysql, and the like.
