I just noticed that tedneward.com was available, so I purchased the domain and will probably start moving the "professional" side of my life over there so as to have both a "personal" presence (here) and a "work" presence (there). This then raises an interesting question: assuming I want to host the domain on an ISP’s machine, does the blogosphere have any good/bad comments about various providers? I’d be looking for:
Unlimited email accounts, or at least a fairly high (>100) number before additional charges kick in. I want to be able to try and keep spam to a minimum by using "tracker" email accounts when registering for downloads and stuff.
Either an ASP.NET or Servlet/JSP engine capability, though database backing isn’t necessarily required. Obviously I want to be able to host a weblog on the domain.
High or unlimited bandwidth. Though I don’t expect people to come flocking to my domain, I don’t want to get nailed with unbelievable surcharges the one time I get SlashDotted.
Fairly high (>500MB) file capacity allotment. I want to be able to put seminar demos, examples, and other such things, on the server for people to get hold of.
I know there’s some strong opinions out there, so….
