I recently registered my domain with 1and1.com
After reading some post here I think I will be changing to another provider.
What I was looking for was an easy way to manage my ecom site,
without having to edit any html code.
I found netfirms.com and noticed that they have a really nice amazon
like site builder (which interests me a lot).
But again, after reading more posts here I had second thoughts.
Can anyone suggest a hosting provider that will have features similar to those
at netfirms.com and have better support.
I checked out wbpro.com, they have what i am looking for, but as a startup ecom site 40$ US is a little much.
I dont mind paying more if I get more ...
I do not recommend 1and1.com or netfirms.com for that.
Find a hosting company that offers osCommerce, i believe is the best e-commerce and cost effective.
Also make sure the hosting supports it, it means if for some reason the store breaks, you don't know how to do something etc. They will give you phone support.
The support is important because your site is your business, if its broken or not functional you are out of business. So make sure to look for a company that can be with you all the way.
