I have been trying to self learn what I can about selecting a web hosting service for a local non-profit animal shelter to manage animals for adoptions AND shelter activities.
We have an MS Access home grown database for donor, customer and animal info that I want to see web-based for remote access to multiple users AND password protected!
We currently have a web site lvpaws.org that I want to move. I like frontapge cause its EASY and we really need that with the limited experience we have. SO here's what I think I need:
-DSN access ( for MS Access)
-15 e-mail accounts
-Mailing List (large) 900 + client database
-SSL (anticipate online donor payments)
-MS Frontpage 2002 ext
-domain name (transfer?) Using Network Solutions
-FTP for files (can't fp web publish do this or is it required FOR that?)
-10+subdomains with password protect (used for internal committee use and volunteer teams)
-Disk storage (100mb?)
-bandwidth? no clue
-what is a side server?
I found myhosting.com to have this at gold level, but 19.95 is too much for a totally volunteer/ non-profit ---
Am i missing something? does anyone have suggestions to help? CAN I GET A WEB HOST for under $10.00?
I am not really sure what "DSN" is but I know there is some way to integrate Frontpage with access to allow online databases. Other than that for under $10.00 you should be able to find something that meets all your needs. Just make sure you do a search to make sure there is no negative feedback atleast here before you sign up and I also suggest you email there support a couple times just to get a rough idea of how good there support response times are.. good luck..
