    Hey Guys,

    I have helped plenty of people on here for hardware, so I am hoping to enlist you alls webhosting / website building brains...

    Here is the deal... My father has finally decided to retire from the State of Florida's Department of Transportation.

    He is going to keep working as a consultant, doing the same type of work he did when he was working for the state.

    To do so, he needs a reliable webhosting company who will give a service level agreement for 99% + uptime...

    I need the webhosts link to site and cost per month, and website development cost (if any).

    Come on guys, I know many of you do this on the side, so I need your inputs...

    Thanks!

    Mike A!

    If you need guaranteed SLA for the uptime of the web-server you will want to go with some place that is fully multi-homed, and has service available that will take care of the server.

    http://theplanet.com/

    Multi-homed, dedicated servers, and service level agreements. Contact them for special quotes.

    Full disclosure: osnn.net is currently hosted there

    http://www.nac.net/enterprise/managedservices.asp

    Nac.net has special services available for business and government, including fully managed servers, I suggest contacting them as well for a quote.

    http://www.cavecreek.com/

    They have multiple locations, and managed services. And they would be able to provide the services you would want.

    Those are the ones I know about off the top of my head. Be wary of providers that provide cheap web hosting, or fly by night webhosting shops.

    Just waiting for the browsers to catch up then? You know you're cutting out 70-something% of the browser market as IE will take at least 10 years to support anything super high tech :p
