Web Hosting can be very confusing. There are a few things to look for when choosing a host.
Access to a Control Panel System for the web site
Access to a database
Ability to ftp into the server to load your site
There are 3 very inexpensive hosts we recommend. Both options have a control panel that is very user friendly for the novice. If you have used the more wide spread cpanel, there are 2 options below for that service. We have used all of these and that is why we recommend them. Lunar Pages is our first recommendation. Just click on the banner to see.
