    a rookie question

    Hi,

    I am new at this forum, I just found it today. But I am glad I found it!!!!

    I was wondering if anybody could recommend a webhotell that has the capability to handle these requierments:

    -have your own doman
    -subdomain
    -low cost per month/year
    -unlimited transefers
    -at least 50 MB
    -CGI
    -statistics
    -at least 2 email alias
    -virusprotection and spam filter
    -adminstration via ftp

    -Plattform:

    Mac
    Unix
    Windows

    -Databas:

    MS Access it's ok if it's only this one
    MS SQL Server
    MySQL
    Oracle

    -Ability to use these:

    Anonym FTP
    ASP (Active Server Pages)
    ASP.NET
    ColdFusion
    Own IP-nummer
    My own error messegas (404 etc)
    Frontpage Extensions
    Java Servlets
    JSP (Java Server Pages)
    Password protected catalogs
    ODBC-connection
    Perl
    PHP
    Python
    SSI (Server-Side Includes)
    SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)
    Streaming audio/video
    WAP / WML
    MP3

    I know these are a lot of specifications, but this is what I'm looking for. I was also wondering if anybody know of any pages with tips and codes for ASP and JAVA. Thak you for your help!!!!

    unlimited transfer = impossible.

    you're very very very unlikely to find a host providing both .NET and Linux specific things combined in one package.

    You're also unlikely to find a host that wants to let you stream especially combined with all of the above.

    Good luck.

    yes, but unlimited transfer doesn't exist in reality, many will claim to offer it but be warned unlimited transfer doesn't normally lend itself to a quality hosting company.

    Don't know any web hosts who are offering all of that. You need to cut down on your requirements list, unless you can spread your projects on multiple accounts.

    Do a search here on unlimited bandwidth or unlimited transfer before you decide to go with a host that offers it.

    Java Servlets this is also very important
    JSP (Java Server Pages) so is this

    music4ever, here's what I think:

    -virusprotection and spam filter: that is dependent on what email softwares the host use. You may want to contact hosts about this. But ultimately, the best virus protection is yourself.

    -Own IP-nummer: Some hosts will charge extra for it. Ask first

    -SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and this is also important: Some hosts will let you have a shared SSL, but if you want a private SSL you will have to pay for it.

    -WAP / WML: You are asking for a very limited technology here. I suggest you eliminate it from your list.

    -MP3 and this is also important: ONLY if you own the rights to the MP3s will ANY host accept you. If not, be prepared for them deleting you immediately

    Windows hosting isn't as cheap as Unix hosting, so don't be surprised if you have to pay at least $60 a year for proper service (assuming that you use around 50Mb of space and 2Gb of transfer a month max).

    Personally, I think you are asking for too many technologies for a site this small. Are you sure you know how to use all of them?

    I would narrow your requirements as well and then do an advanced search and also try host quote (free for you to use)

    Well, I have tried to do different searches to find a something that I am looking for. Before I found this site I had done some searches and the webbhosting that sutied and meet my requierments best was resurser.com. Apperantly they aren't as good because I was searching about information about them and I ended up here. I am not new to the requierments I am making, I know what I want and need. But since I don't live in the US I don't get any ads or have any idea of what is good or bad when it comes to webhosts.

    You don't need anything special to serve WML pages? It's just an xml format.
