This Is Not My Forte - website building edition.

About 7 years ago, I created a website for my small business using Current Webhosting Company's WYSIWYG editor. Current Company has not really kept up with advances in website technology (i.e., no responsive design options, difficult to create a mobile site, clumsy blogging, etc). But I've worked hard on my site and I'm generally proud of it. Should I cut my losses and start all over again? Or can this website be saved... and how??? [more inside]

Has web hosting become a commodity?

Has basic web hosting become a commodity? I have found so many companies offering essentially the same features for around the same price. Is it necessary these days for the non-power user really spend time and energy choosing the best deal or the best "rated" company? [more inside]

Having the site go down would be bad....

We're sending out about 55,000 postcards to members of our organization. Those postcards direct them to visit a brand-new website for information on a new program. Assuming that all 55,000 members have at least some interest in the new program (which they likely do, or they wouldn't pay for the membership in the first place) what kind of website traffic should we be prepared to handle during that first week? What specific hosting package (vendor and package name) would you suggest we buy to best absorb the traffic for this project.

Free non-despotic webhosting that

What's a good free, semi-anonymous Web hosting service that isn't quick to take down content? I want to post some satirical artwork I created, but not get canned because of some overreactive corporate legal department. I've heard Dutch sites are good for this. Any thoughts? And does Google do a good job indexing free servers?

I am in a shared hosting environment, but I host multiple domains using mod_rewrite. Of course, this means all the domains get lumped together in one logfile. I need to be able to separate the individual domains for log analysis, without using a CustomLog statement. [more inside]

Simple Site Setupt

A family member of mine wants to set up a simple site for his home business - schedules of classes, some photographs, contact information, links, etc., and I have suggested that he use Typepad, which I use for a number of projects. However I think he'd prefer a non-weblog format, which leads me to my question: are there combined hosting/construction tools out there, like some of these weblog services, that have a good and very easy-to-use back-end, lots of design/format choices, but are more focused around a more heirarchically structured, top-down site structure?

Hosting packages for Aussies?

I was just about to sign up to a quite nice looking hosting deal with 1and1, when I discovered it's available to US and Canadian Residents Only. This, of course, completely pissed me off. Does anyone know of any packages comparable to their Linux Business Hosting that are available to poor Aussies like me?
