Not sure yet, just comparing and contrasting. They offer similar packages but with different pricing structures, which means different hosts may suit different people. Support is important and 123 were a bit feeble I thought.RogerS":2cppuinp said:Why don't you like 123-reg ?
http://www.friendsofjeremycorbyn.co.uk ? So not much bandwidth required then :lol: Sorry, Jacob...couldn't resist. Merry Christmas.Dibs-h":27bqj2tt said:Without wanting to sound like I'm not answering your question - it depends on the specifics of what you are wanting to do, i.e. the space and bandwidth you are looking to use. Also the grunt required. Usually what you are looking to build the site & forum with can sometimes give you an idea.
You are probably right but there's a good reason for having all your stuff in one place, see belowRogerS":2vzghm81 said:I like your idea, Jacob, of using the website to sell your stuff but I think you're trying to solve two 'problems' which will over-complicate things. By all means have a phpbb forum board but to add the ability to sell stuff, take payments etc seems debatable...when sites like eBay and etsy already are set-up. OK...you pay charges etc but how much in time and money is setting up your own system going to take? Let alone the daily ongoing site work.
More a case of attracting than driving. Google finds things. If there's a diversity of stuff on a site then you get a diversity of visitors. The idea is that e.g. an article about sharpening or something might lead to somebody to look further and end up buying a table, a bit of my wife's knitting, or point somebody else at the site. Nobody is interested in sharpening only, in spite of appearances! It's the High Street model - diversity in one place is good for butcher, baker and candle stick maker.And how are you going to 'drive' people to your website ?
I find the club hilarious, Jacob has given me the biggest laughs of this year, still laughing my nuts off at his classic predictions which were a couple of million light years out. Keep it up Jacob, you seem to have gone very quiet, are you still canvassing?Trevanion":8wzitfjv said:The Jacob Fan Club sounds fun :wink:
Club not my idea - I think Trevanion misread "Jacob's Junk Shop".doctor Bob":bnsh8xgr said:I find the club hilarious, Jacob has given me the biggest laughs of this year, still laughing my nuts off at his classic predictions which were a couple of million light years out.

Not quite sure why you have decided to be so malicious? I guessing you don't do christmas spirit.Jacob":2r7k47vq said:You need to get out more Bobbo, it's Christmas you know, it doesn't do to be a miserable sod at this time of year. Maybe its all those dismal kitchens getting you down, they all look like mortuaries to me! :lol: Where did you dig up the style? :roll:
