    Wow I just went with 1 & 1 for a domain and host...well I cant figure out how to use their control panel lol

    I used smart ftp to upload a bunch of stuff to the webspace
    but then I can access it or view it, I enabled frontpage extensions but when I publish with frontpage still get an error 404 crap

    so im thinking I Wana try another host
    but this was a domain/host deal hope they let me cancel the host plan and keep the domain name

    anyways any suggestions on an easier host to use, thise control panel just isnt workin for me

    I agree about their control panel. Im sure for some people that is ideal in managing their account, but managing the web space is not very fast/fun.

    As far as a new host I dont really recommend anything without knowing what specifics you need. Might also try using the Host Quote feature, and ALWAYS do a search for the hosts you get offers from to see what past/current customers think.

    I have a few free 3 year packages there. I agree about their control panel. It takes some getting used to.
    And yes, their speed isnt the greatest.... but for free, I cant reall complain.

    So, you are dissatisfied with their administrative panel, not the performance?

    Yes and no. The panel is bad. The service is ok. One thing I do like is their customer support.
