    Beware of 1-grid

    Unfortunately due to South African regulations clients have little recourse when I company takes their money. All that I can do now is post on forums and hopefully help other people avoid unethical companies. A few months back I applied online at 1-grid for their R49.00 a month small hosting...

    Co Location Services

    Hi Guys, I posted a little while ago about finding a provider that can provide hosting with large storage. Worked out quite expensive in South Africa (as one might expect).

    SA located Server hosting with large storage

    Hey guys, So I bought a server via Hetzner's server auction a couple months ago. While it's fantastic, I'm getting a little frustrated with international speeds (not Hetzner's fault - my ISP).

    R56000 bill for diskspace usage

    Buying Hosting Client Bases

    Hi all. I'm currently buying hosting client bases but phoning small businesses with client bases of 5 isn't exactly proving to be worth my time and effort.

    What does it cost to set up and run a Forum site like Mybroadband?

    Can anyone provide estimates of what it costs to set up and maintain a 'forum site'? A forum similar to Mybroadband serving a specific community (this is not competition to mybroadband!). Can one buy a standard template? What would hosting cost? What other significant costs to consider?

    Any recommendations from personal experience on which host to select? Or are they much the same? My needs are basic: a 4-3 page website and about 5 email addresses. Any thoughts welcome.
