[Noisebridge-discuss] decent and cheaper web hosts

Hi Ronald,
That sound interesting. For me it is quite simple. My web pages are green on 
black, mostly text. I want to create small photo gallery and have there links to 
some of my video interviews. In other words quite pretty simple. The two things 
more which I would like to do and which may be problem is mailing list (can be 
done other way) and kind of "wikimedia" interface. I'm weak in html and I would 
prefer to switch for this alternative because it is going to be who is going to 
maintain the web page. That is quite all.

I have to say one thing which is quite crucial and which you have probably 
guessed already. My knowledge of web page domain register and web hosting is 
very, very limited. If you say that I need my own registrar what does it exactly 
mean? I've registered my domain name with justhost.com and I've my web page 
hosted with the same company. When I have checked now for example on 
http://register.com my domain it is said that it is taken. Fine. Again I did the 
search at www.whois.com and got the detial information (below) and I've to say 
that I'm still not sure if it means that I own my domain rights (which I hope I 
do) or not. So what shall I do now when I'm still registered with justhost.com 
for next few days but I'd like to do my own registrar and transfer my webpages 
hosting to you, if it is OK with you (or somewhere else if there is any 
problem)? Can I do a new registrar with someone else than justhost already 
before my involvement with them is over? How? Who knows it is me and not someone 
else just trying to get my identity?

I know that my questions may seem quite stupid. I think that I do understand the 
absolute bases of web hosting / domain registrar, well I hope I do, but I do not 
have enough practice and I do not really trust these guys out there, in other 
words I do not want to fuck up. 

I'll be looking forward for your answer and actually I think that this thread 
may be quite useful for people who are like me, therefore not very web 
knowledgeable ...

Thanks for your help,

I also happen to host a bunch of sites for free for friends.  It is a cPanel 
based server and I actually perform daily, weekly and monthly backups to a 
secondary drive in the machine.  It is at a real datacenter and I actually OWN 
the hardware.  You can meet me or already have.   You do need your own registrar

For anyone who is interested in paying an actual person for their web hosting / 
mailing list etc needs, check out speedypuppy.com it is run by a guy I know, 
Jim, who answers emails and has helped me with some config stuff I wanted to do 
that was over my head... but comes with tons of tools and access to do whataver 
you want yourself.
