I have been with my current host for eons. Unfortunately, I have seen nothing but a steady decline in service. The last straw was they disabled my email accounts for being 'inactive' because I don't log in using outlook or webmail. They even disabled my primary contact email which they used to contact me about disabling my email accounts! I check my email on my phone, which they don't support — so I forward it to gmail.
All I want is to be able to use my own domain for email, ftp, and webpages. I am currently wading through all the options out there I can find. I am trying to separate out the real reviews from the shills. Who do you recommend? Is there some alternative I am overlooking because I haven't been shopping for this kind of service in eons? Can google apps or something similar serve my needs? I currently spend about $100 a year — that is about the most I'd be willing to pay."
