Note: We prefer not to set up sites that use the response form as an order form, since these require secure servers, and secure order pick-up. For one to ten products we recommend using a payment button like “paypal” or similar with a secure server. We charge extra to set up the ordering system.
|10. Web Hosting Service we are not in the web hosting business. We recommend to our clients web hosting services tailored to their specific needs. We’ve worked with dozens of hosting services — the good, the bad, and the ugly. We usually do not recommend hosting on your local dial-up ISP, since they too often are not well-prepared to meet specialized business site hosting needs. Their main business is usually dial-up access, and hosting is only a sideline for them. Please let us recommend a Web host service for you. We require cgi-bin access and FTP access, Our no-extra-cost response form also requires a Unix system with Perl language available.Web Hosting Service _____________________________________Phone: _____________________________
