I want to take a moment to make a recommendation for my ISP, Hostek.com. I have been with Hostek for a total of about four years, and have never had any problems with them. Prices are very competitive with generous bandwidth and disk storage space. Unlike a lot of ISPs, you can have a dedicated IP address assigned to your website. The response to service tickets is very fast, and the technicians never give me grief, even if the problem is my fault.
Yesterday's problem with the Forums database is an example of the swiftness of their response. The table corruption issue was resolved within an hour of my submitting a ticket.
If you are planning to start a new website or are looking to switch to a new ISP, I highly recommend Hostek.com. Please tell them I sent you; I don't get anything for it, but would like them to know that I promoted them because of their great service.
