I finally have been able to get my web site moved to the new hosting plan. The problems were mostly user error but seem to be behind me now. I still need to set up the gallery but one step at a time, right? Right! So if you’re wondering, I moved from 1and1 to PowWeb. I liked 1and1 but needed more storage space for my gallery. I took advantage of their special and got 14 months free and with 5gig of storage, I couldn’t go too wrong. The downside is that the user interface is not a slick and I may have too much access (that’s where I ran into problems) Overall, I would recommend 1and1 for first timers and PowWeb for more experienced users. DreamHost seems comprable to PowWeb but with a user interface closer to 1and1. Click on the links to your left and compare for yourself. If you sign up from one of my links, I get paid so be sure and show me some love. Thanks.
Also, let me say that I love WordPress and 1and1.com. My other two sites are still at 1and1 and they handle ALL my domain registration. I only moved to PowWeb for the great deal on high bandwidth and storage that my Gallery Install needed.
