this is why i love my webhost

usually i read blogs with people complaining about their webhosts. since i've been with lunarpages, i've experienced no down time and the support has always been helpful and solved my problems in no time both via email and the 24-hour phone support. for my $7.95/month i got free setup, unlimited e-mail accounts, unlimited e-mail forwarding, toll-free telephone support, unlimited e-mail auto responders, 30-day money back guarantee, web mail, online control panel, 800 MB storage, 40GB/month bandwidth, 2,000 Mbit connectivity, 99.9% uptime, 3 parked domains, 15 sub domains, add-on domain available, FrontPage Extensions, Dreamweaver Compatible, FTP Account, POP3, SMTP & IMAP, CGI-BIN, PHP, PYTHON & PERL, ASP, JSP & Servlets available, MySQL Database, SSI - Server Side Includes.

i don't think many webhosts can offer much better than this for such a price.

and as if that wasn't enough the cpanel (online control panel) is about to be updated with fantastico. what does that mean?

that means there'll be a slew of scripts that i'll be able to autoinstall to my site if i want to. and i just may want to. well, if not really to use them, at least to try them out, just b/c i can. besides, although donald finally got me to convert from handcoding in html back in jan. to switch over to MT (and i haven't tried MT3 yet), there are times i want to do some things that MT just won't allow. MT is nice for the HTML, CMS publishing novice, but for and HTML, CMS, XML, XHTML expert whose learning PHP (and who somewhat knows her way around Macromedia Studio MX and Adobe Photoshop and Imageready) there can be some drawbacks. (btw, the rest of this site is done in html and i just may want the whole darn thing to be database driven-which most php based CMS provide.)
