I want to have a non-gmail/slightly more professional address for my freelance work, so I'm planning to buy a domain. What companies would you recommend for a) buying a domain and b) hosting the site? I just want to have one page with a background photo, a line of text, and a link to my email. Is Squarespace worth it, since I don't know how to build the page myself?

I'm trying to help my cousin migrate his WIX photography site to an actual host. His backup drive with all of his photos died and the only place these images exist is on wix, who doesn't support downloading the content.
I tried httrack and a couple online website rippers but none are able to pull the images.
Is there any way I can avoid doing this the amazingly hard way?

I'm in need of a new webhost, and I need the following: SSH/SFTP, PHP support, ability to run background processes (namely the Unix version of Dropbox), webmail forwarding, and monthly payments. I don't need much space (1 GB would likely be plenty) or bandwidth (1 GB/mo? maybe?), and the Dropbox process is literally the only thing I would have running. What's my best, cheapest option? Thanks!

Our VPS webhost was acquired by a larger firm, and slowly moved from managed hosting to unmanaged hosting. Our Plesk/Parallels server was compromised last night. In order to get it back online, I had to backup the old server, then have it wiped/reset.
I'm looking for a third party server administrator to help move email files from the backup to the accounts on the reinstalled server. [more inside]

I've recently created a small hobby site using wordpress and currently hosted on wordpress.com. It is a niche site and I will have a number of product recommendations that I feel would be valuable to monetize. I'd like to add affiliate links (specifically Amazon.com) or possibly use adsense but that's a no no on wordpress.com. Can anyone help me through the myriad of options for hosting by providing some recommendations? [more inside]

I am currently using 000webhost and am in need of a change. Lately it has been slow loading and right now the server is timing out altogether.
I'm studying web design at the moment so it's not the end of the world that this happens now as the only people checking out my site are my instructors. However, in the not so distant future I would like to go pro and host my portfolio on my domain so the server going down for hours on end at any time just isn't acceptable.
So... which free (or relatively cheap) webhosts do you recommend?
Thank you so much for your suggestions! :)

I'm looking for a new web host for my very low traffic personal resume/portfolio site. Caveat: they must be willing to host several non-copyrighted MP3s produced by me and linked only from the site itself. How might I go about searching for hosts that will definitely allow such files? [more inside]

My Yahoo small business account (webhosting) was closed because my autopay credit card expired. I called to try to reopen and was led to believe that my website would be put back up like old times once I signed up for another year of webhosting. This does not now seem to be the case and I am now going to cancel the order within the 30 day period. Who do you recommend as the best webhost provider for a very small service business? (HTML5 capability would be nice.)
I need to get up and running with someone else asap before i miss more emails/potential clients. Also, should I use the new webhost provider for email or something like googleapps?
Thank you for any advice.

I have a client with 8GB of data I need to transfer from old web host (Powweb) to new one (Dreamhost). Old web host has no shell access and kills single FTP transfers at ~500MB. There are tons of files in tons of folders. Both hosts allow php and perl. How should I do this? [more inside]

What are the steps involved in moving registered domains to another host? I'd like to move a number of domains from 1&1 to WebFaction so I can run Django apps easily. An extra wrinkle is that one of the domains needs to be assigned/given to another person who will do with it what they will. [more inside]

Web hosting company tells me that they don't allow me to setup email forwarders to external addresses (So I can make email@example.com get sent to firstname.lastname@example.org). Their reason? If any spam comes through the forwarder, they will get blamed and labeled as spammers. True or BS? [more inside]

My friends have a webhosting account with Network Solutions
. NetSol seems to be saying that you cannot point a .ca
domain-name to that account. Is that really true? Are .Mac
accounts compatible with .ca domains? If the answer to both is no, can you recommend a webhost for .ca domains? (They have already bought the domain.) [NB:
I don't want to just use a page forwarder - that is, I want www.mysite.ca/blogs/newblog etc urls to work.] Thanks!

What free, open-source projects can I run in a privately accessible portion of my webspace that would be useful to me in terms of making things more practical in my own life (think Lifehacker-43 Folders kind of stuff)? I'd prefer Mefites' personal experiences with their own installs over linkage that you've seen but never tried — although I'll take either one. [more inside]

Is there an easy way to find out which domain names are using the same shared hosting server? Ideally, there is a web site or free download (OS X preferred) that can tell me which domain names resolve to a particular ip address. I've fooled around with most of the functions on samspade.org
and haven't seen one that does this.

I want to install phpBB on my website, but I have a basic question to which I haven't been able to find the answer yet. If I am using a MySQL database behind MT for my weblog, can I install phpBB on the same database and assume it will just build additional tables in MySQL? Or does it require a completely separate database that would be addressed differently? [more inside]
