Default Intro with questions.


I'm Mitra, new to webprogramming.I'm pursuing my BS in Computer Science and Mathematics at Cleveland State University, in Cleveland, Ohio. I'm in the process of creating my first website for a Doctor. In the process my prof. recomended me this site.

For the past few hours I've been reading different threads but I still have a few questions, so please consider this as a intro and a requesting info thread. Being a newbie to Internet Programming, in the sense that I have no clue as to what to look for when shopping for web hosting. I need a dedicated IP, since I want the FTP facility for uploading photos and ASP pages. Support ASP, since I want to create the pages in C# or VB.net. The second major question I have is, is it possible to have the site with FTP and ASP support without a dedicated IP. Please suggest some good web hosting links.

welcome aboard Mitra

you won't need a dedicated ip for ftp access, but many plans do provide a dedicated ip

i won't offer any more tech advice as that's not my area and your host or someone else here will be gald to answer those tech questions

as far as good host ... there are several mentioned at this forum and you can use the search feature to find more info, but 2 good for a beginner would be


actually these 2 offer plans not just for beginners but for larger sites as well. the former also offers vps and dedicateds and I'm not sure about the second.

Both of these make the list recommended by the site admin here, so it's not just my opinion

hope it helps

Of the two superb hosts that Worthen mentioned, FluidHosting is better known for hosting Windows-based machines. If you want a quick and easy answer, then, I'd recommend that you grab a shared hosting package from FluidHosting. They should serve you well.
