HOW THE NET NEWBIE can CHOOSE A WEBHOSTING SERVICE
I'm new at this website stuff But I need a WEB
PRESENCE NOW! So I GOTTA figure this stuff out!
We all need a web presence, not only for our new cottage industry, we need it to teach, share an evolutionary view, maybe anti-war, maybe anti-Masters of the Universe, Sink the Galactic Overlords... and INDUCE REFORM.... "The Fix for Planet Earth." INFORM. BANISH IGNORANCE. That is your job. Your MISSION.
A commercial cyberspace 'web host' service is the first thing you will need to do any of it! You FTP articles to it in 10 seconds with free FTP (file transfer protocol) software, found online. A 10 year old could do it.
Have a FRONT PAGE THAT IS AN INDEX with TEMPTING SELECTIONS, like "THE TRUTH ABOUT .." or "HOW to ACCOMPLISH X" or"TASTIEST RECIPE FOR X" with LIVE LINKS to your many articles which you park on separate "back pages" )meaning LOADED ONTO THE SITE IN BACKGROUND ---so that someone who searches on FRUGAL SOUP RECIPES does not have to wade thru a ten foot long FRONT PAGE. There should be a separate URL at your COOKING RECIPES PAGE that says CLICK HERE FOR FRUGAL SOUP RECIPES and that's on a separate article all to itself and not on main index page like blogs do... (Thousand foot long piece of toilet paper). You can have main page and thousands of side pages at once for the tiny pricetag of sixty bucks a year or thereabouts. ( 5dollarhosting.com is a good one NOW CALLED EXACT HOSTING BTW, ditto DOMAINMONGER. 8 $ a month. EARTHLINK is a bad webhost. (See what I said about them on complaint site.) MANY HOSTS have bad reps for GETTING YOU TO SIGN UP then UPPING THE ANTE. Here's a real example of what can happen when the web host controls your domain names:
The web host owner registered the customer's domain names in his own name. Either that, or he changed the ownership of the domain names to
himself after the customer bought them. Vendor-Lock Hosting... that seems like an apt name for this company. BLACKMAIL is what it is. LIKE a jealous,brutal husband, you can never LEAVE with your LIFE !
EARTHLINK did that to me; after 22 yrs with them and with 4 of my DOMAIN NAME AND WEBSITES HOSTED BY THEM,
In early January 2019, Trive Capital acquired Earthlink for $330 million in cash from Windstream Holdings Inc. and announced they were cancelling all WEBSITE SERVICE.
HOSTING IS OVER.THEY WILL DISSOLVE my four sites. 1000 articles must be reformatted, all URLS pointing to ELN HOSTED PAGES rewritten. I AM EIGHTY. THIS WAS MY SWANSONG, they are forcing me to spend my last year on earth EDITING 8 hrs a day and reposting SOMEWHERE ELSE.
WHY DID I EVER START WITH THESE BRIGANDS?? Day that I started. I was doing astrology in Hollywood where clients got me more clients but I wanted to go international. I NEEDED a WEBSITE FAST . Only a website can do that for a business. Step by step, I wrote up the process. Click on this file HOW TO MERCHANDISE YOUR COTTAGE INDUSTRY and you'll see why YOU need one now, too. My first three sites (earlier) were freebie ones that Earthlink Gives you. They all start 'http://home.earthlink.net ---" which isn't very professional. Then I was going to be on JUDGE JUDY, national TV so my daughter gave me a 5$ a month site, LUCK IN LOVE.COM where a million viewers could read the teachings that got me in the HOT SEAT on that show. (I won the case!) Encouraged, I got my own, first website, The TEACHINGS OF THE MASTER JULES (which I transcribed from my Guru's tape-recorded talks.)
Later, when Jules' webhost DOMAINMONGER went up to 8$ a month (to me outrageous) I wanted to switch. I wrote my tekkie pal, "You're the expert, how about a CHEAPER WEBHOST maybe GoDaddy.com which is a dollar or something. The Tekkie winced. "Anita, your material is a little on the edge for them. You talk up off the wall themes like guerilla capitalism, how to launder money, how to not be taxed and licensed to death by Uncle Sam (at least referring to period while you start the biz up first few yrs, and get some profits. ) Also that edgy stuff on how to marry a billionaire, holistic medicine, magical cancer cures and worst, You crib graphics from others' pages! Every one of those things is going to ring bells over there and GoDaddy penalizes you big cash and cuts you off, both. They go into your bank account and take it. NO TRIAL. Say that someone complains about your site, they disable it, empty your bank account which they have a TENTACLE AROUND ---and hold it for ransom. You want those files, you gotta pay them $200 to get YOUR OWN FILES back but they already took the money from your bank account by automatic debit ... as they know where your money is. They will cite "contract infringement", so frankly there is NO getting it back! That has happened to quite a few people !!!! SO THERE ARE MANY reasons to avoid GoDaddy. (google this, guys, you'll see many articles!)
Most of the cases I heard of involved spam complaints against YOU so that a competitor can close you down. I heard that they weren't even valid complaints. But that didn't matter. THEY listen to that person and TAKE a huge cash penalty out of your account. Write them, Like a robot, all they can say is "WE TOOK $200 out of your bank account, fool. Try gettin' it back, huh?"
It doesn't have to be spam complaints, though. If you have what their president considers to be objectionable content on your web site and they find out about it, they could hold your domain name for ransom. Lots of people love GoDaddy, but I won't do business with them because of this." GO DADDY will edit your content, FINE you 200$ and shut you down if they don’t like what you do. No arguing, that money is taken from your accounts. WHAT SERVER DOES THAT? GO-DADDY does. AVOID THEM like the plague: read these FACTS ON GODADDY and their outrageous, criminal penalties. THIS WEEK, OCT 2017, my friend had 200$ lifted out of his account by them for no good reason. Read how another subscriber was handed a bill for seven thousand bucks by Go Daddy which should be called GRAB DADDY. ALSO these creeps at GD came out in favor of SOPA, the gov bill to shut down websites that even reputedly have copyrighted material. GD's subscribers left them immediately the day they said they were WITH THE GOV...... ON SOPA ISSUES and inside of a week, GD had to reverse that notion & eat their words! Fab win by the Aaron Swartz crowd!!
This 'TAKE MONEY from your ACCOUNT" --it's the infamous GRAB DADDY maneuver - story was posted on my website and an EX AOL subscriber read it & told me: "I don't think that story was an error at all; its like the electronic voting machines that can be programmed in a particular way. I had a similar problem with AOL broadband when I left them in 2008 for another service provider. I had been with them since 1998, first paying by the minute, as it was at that time, and then later by monthly standing order. When I moved up from London to Chesterfield (He's Brit) in 2003, retaining AOL, I then got broadband. There was never a contract and nothing signed, just a monthly account to come and go as I pleased. Their broadband service was an abomination with many technical problems, frequently requiring support. In early 2008 I started looking for another supplier and found one, who asked me to obtain the MAC code, which I then got from AOL and passed it to the new supplier. Having signed up with the new firm I cancelled my direct debit with AOL; there was a period of ten days between the closure of the AOL connection to receiving the broadband box from the new one. After about six weeks I started receiving demands from AOL, which went on for several months; the first letters I tore up and threw away, believing they were a technical error. Then they started sending RED warning letters with pending legal action. That got my back up! Eventually I proved to them that they were wrong with their demands, but they never sent an apology. I realised later that this was a ploy they used with customers who ditched them sending demand letters, and keep on sending them; most people get fright with kittens and pay up. AOL had set up a special debt collection organisation to take over this role - I discovered this after doing research; a big facade of a debt collection agency to send terror down people's spines. That's the name of the game in modern corrupt business."
I know that one reason GO DADDY takes your seven thousand bucks is CONTENT IS EDGY! Too evolutionary. And me, I have a target on my back: I talk about GUERILLA CAPITALISM, HOW TO MARRY a BILLIONAIRE,( if you're gorgeous,) how to launder money, work under the table and all kinds of EDGY STUFF so that wouldn't do for me! But probably it would be OK for you. Get back to me on what they charge now so I can update this. astrology at earthlink. net
GAL ON MY LIST SEZ GO DADDY OK IF YOU KEEP an EYE PEELED!
"I have used GoDaddy for years. Ironically GoDaddy owns most of the other web hosting services also. Some people buy the smallest hosting program that GoDaddy has, which is either free or about $4 a month, and then not pay attention to how much space they are actually using. As she said in the blog you linked to, "...for a
simple $7 more I could have avoided the big charge when I exceeded the bandwidth. I check my site once a month to see how much space I am using. I've only
gotten close to going over once, so I upgraded to unlimited size. GoDaddy has the BEST customer service and will walk you through almost anything, which
was great when I first got my websites. Their terms are right there and you agree to them before they host your site".
This is another example of why people need to READ the terms of any agreement they make, and when they are trying to keep costs down they also
need to remember to make sure they are staying within the bounderies of the lower cost plans. " OK. CAVEAT EMPTOR and maybe you'll be OK! But why not go with the two hosts I RECOMMEND AT THE TOP. 5dollar hosting and domainmonger.
PHIL C. my TEKKIE pal complained that many webhosts have ads only tekkies can understand. Ferinstance "SHARED HOSTING?" WHAT IS THAT? I just want to know how much for my website, what size? PLAIN SIMPLE ENGLISH. There wasn't one phrase on that page I could understand! Nor could PHIL and he's a tekkie!
I had that problem at every webhost page I went to. They need to do NEWBIE-LINGO all on one page.SIMPLE. I got straight A's and got into UCLA, I'm not dumb but this tekkie stuff? GET REAL!
One SUPPOSEDLY was entitled to put up to ten domains on this SERVER I USE, EARTHLINK, when you buy SERVER SERVICES From them. Their least expensive account ---back when I started on the NET was 40$ a month! I GOT ROOKED BY THEM TEN WAYS FROM SUNDAY. First, my 10 free websites are a lie. They gave me 3 and that was it. Then if my webpages got too many visitors, they'd shut them down after that happened,until the FIRST OF THE NEXT MONTH. DEMAND MORE MONEY FOR MORE BYTES AND BANDWIDTH! I actually did PR for them in my 'articles' ---Wish I could find those articles online at my EARTHLINK FREEBIE PAGES and rip them off the net. I went on to have 7,000 pages using REAL WEBHOSTS who don't care about bandwidth. PICK ANY ONE OF THESE FROM A REALLY GOOD LIST and avoid EARTHLINK! http://www.webhostingsecretrevealed.net/ultimate-cheap-web-hosting-guide/
ONE of my webhosts is a 5$ a month one.. for my "HOW TO MARRY A BILLIONAIRE SITE" I LOVE http://www.5dollarhosting.com 5$ a month, 60$ a year, endlessly big websites. I have used one there for 12 years. Another pal told me that she'd been with drak.net for 7 yrs, perfect experience. 3$ s month, 36$ a year and the tekkies were girls and very nice though they got bought out by some surly gent and then the GIRLS disappeared. Prob cuz the girls who owned it went to the caribbean and a guy took over, a rude cuss, too. Used to be if you wanted 3 websites price went down to 5$ a month for all three. That is less than 2$ each website per month! First time I wrote them a letter at their website. THE girls who owned it and started the host server off ANSWERED a mere ten minutes later. I realized that they do something NO HOST DOES. THEY ANSWER immediately. Though now it's a guy and you can barely reach him at all but they do have attentive online TEKKIES 24/7. Perhaps that comes from it being an all woman staff owners as women would never hear you talk and not respond. They structured their mode of operation. Then, one day, their prices went up. I called and got a RUDE MAN. He'd taken over the joint. I dismissed all thoughts of signing up with them. But hey, you try them. See who answers you. RUDE BOY OR SMART POLITE GIRLS. But no problema; remember, http://www.5dollarhosting.com/ now called EXACT HOSTING iwhich can be your SECOND HAPPIEST CALM PEACEFUL FRIENDLY HONEST WEBHOST. Tested by ME. I also use DOMAIN MONGER as they DO NOT "GO DOWN" all the time and tekkies answer immed.24/7 and even gave me a free year when I was broke. After 12 yrs with them. LOVE those guys.
Another Pal tells me to investigate http://www.bravenet.com He thinks highly of them.
Maybe you have some suggestions of web hosts you like... to give me? I'm astrology at earthlink net that's an email addie.
I found this 3$ webhost, Wonder if this is current.
Recently I googled a LIST of the "BEST WEBHOSTS" noted a few were 3$ a month! WAY TO GO! I'm always shopping for an inexpensive webhost as I'm currently thinking up names for my next WEBSITE. "FRUGAL LIVING.ORG" is for that side of my personality that pinches pennies. "How to Marry a Billionaire" is my other zebra stripe.AND FREE WEB PAGES FOR YOUR WEBSITE is my last FEAT, as in "ANITA SANDS HERNANDEZ has dozens of free webinars in the LIFE 101 series.... See the PORTAL TO ALL HER CLASSROOMS which U can REPUBLISH FREE and attract AD $$"
CREATE YOUR OWN VULTURE SANDWICH. ORG ) click on that website to see how you'd start a charity. Give parties to raise funds. Legally you can salary yourself 36k a year and raise funds for NEPAL.
Learn "HOW YOU CAN START A FAMINE FIX CHARITY" or a "THIRD WORLD IMPORT/ EXPORT ARTISANRY " charity for small villages or a TAX EXEMPT NON PROFIT FOUNDATION which gives parties, charges at the door, sends it to EBOLA nations.
CLICK to see how real vultures find all these orphaned children and eat them.
That happens in Africa these days. See http://www.masterjules.net/homelessindex.htm
Give it an easy to remember name. VULTURE SANDWICH. That refers
to the big birds that pick starving orphaned infant children right off the grass in AFRICA. They sit there next to the child until it dies. Then eat it.
WHAT WE REALLY NEED is a charity that goes around like UNESCO and promotes BIRTH CONTROL METHODS in INDIA and AFRICA where children are used as a social security pension. Maybe these countries NEED SOCIAL SECURITY for seniors? HUH? Better than VULTURES.
I do a pretty neat RECESSION TECH 101 SEMINAR with GUERILLA CAPITALISM. Those themes need to be welded into their own website. Problem is I had a lot of poverty lately myself. Even cutting back on catfood doesn't seem to help and our neighborhood has no mice.
Then there's my political site http://www.masterjules.net/index2.htm needs its own
domain name. I'm thinking MATRIXBUSTERS.ORG! It has Snap Crackle & POP!
PLANET FIX! or OCCUPY EARTH.ORG.
THIS JUST IN: EARTHLINK offers a STARTER sign up, you pay 39$ a month for the SERVER EARTHLINK and get TEN FREE WEBSITES, Small ones, here are mine
http://home.earthlink.net/~astrology and http://home.earthlink.net/anitaastrologer and http://home.earthlink.net/~loveguru They will only be OPEN til MARCH 2020 as SUDDENLY EARTHLINK WAS BOUGHT OUT and they will disappear. 3 free websites that nobody could either prounounce or recall, and 39$ a month was Wayyyy too expensive, yet I've been with them 22 yrs paying that rate, as three of my free websites are with them. Can't crash them at this point but I do that to KEEP my fab email address astrology at earthlink . So I GOT TRAPPED BY EARTHLINK. but I still recommend them: Great tech support. The best. Complain about anything you get rebates. I believe an ad about ELN (as we insiders call them,) which GOT ME BACK IN THE 90s as they said they offer:
Free domain name for 2 years — $40 value
Free setup — $25 value
Free site builder — get online in under 1 hr.
5GB of web hosting storage
20GB of monthly data transfer
100 email boxes Give them my name astrology at earthlink and I get a free month!
So for 22 years with EARTHLINK, four of my websites were the freebie ones, they look like this http://home.earthlink.net/~astrology/
and KALIMA but ELN says they're taking them back MARCH 2020. I have to load them onto DOMAINMONGER and EXAcT HOSTING SITES or get a NEW DOMAIN NAME AND SITE
and change all the URLS in 40 million bytes of ARTICLES. HUNDREDS of rewrites are necessary.
WHAT was always WRONG about THESE site names was that you cannot easily give to a friend or client but at one time they were the only kind of URL you could put in a CRAIGSLIST ad and put them in as written-out text or EMAIL to your list in an HTM file (what you're reading now is an HTM file) as a live link. My "FREE SEMINAR" series of ads features these URLS. Folks click on them, they're up and they're live links at Craigs. My articles contain them, dozens of them per article. I never LISTED MY URLS at search engines but those search engines FIND my sites, deliver them to searchers, cuz I have META TEXT in the coding. You also want to edit your meta text after you finish an article. And every so often use an URL CHECKER to make sure all your links are alive. My fave is this one.......... https://www.drlinkcheck.com/ ^
