MindSpring [yak] -- [WAS] Off topic E-mail

Hi Laura,

I checked out MindSpring, and I might switch to them for dial-up
service when my current contract runs out, but their web hosting
is just WAAAAY too expensive.

I have two different providers. I use EROL’S for dialup.
Frankly, they suck eggs, but my unlimited dialup account costs
only about $12.95/month. They seem to spend all of their money
on self-promotion and very little on their network. It’s gotten
so crowded that from about 2:00pm to midnight it takes 5-10
attempts just to dial in.

My web page provider is a different story entirely. You said
you want your own domain. Here’s what you’d get from DIGIWEB
for $20/month:


  • Your Own Domain
  • 25 Megs for WWW/FTP
  • 10 Megs for email
  • Telnet/FTP Account
  • unlimited email aliasing
  • 9am to 9pm M-F EST Support
  • Full access to CGI
  • 200 MB/day of data transfer
  • Web server access log
  • Real-time traffic reports
  • Java, Perl, PHP, C/C++
  • Free Shopping Cart Software

You still have to pay the INTERNIC fee, which is $100 for two
years, but there’s no way around that.

goddess grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot
change, change the things I can, and a great big bag of money.
