I along with 2 other partners are starting a new business in July, and I have been put in charge of finding Webhosting/email, internet, etc. I don't have any experience with this sort of thing, but sadly am the most computer saavy of the 3 of us.

Does anyone hear have any experience with this or any referrals, advice?? The website will basically be a resource for our customers and a place for them to apply for the service on line. I would prefer to have the same company do the email, webhosting/design. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not at liberty to say just yet. So for now let's just say I'm starting a Man Whore business..

Make sure that your partners aren't still interviewing with someone else to start a different business.

Advice? Don't go into a partnership. It's like a marriage with no sex.

If you are the "smart guy" what are the other two for? Decoration?

Have you done a market study yet to determine the geographic areas with the most unmet demand for man whores? My company can do that for you.

"along with 2 other partners"

This worries me, I hate partners. I've seen my dad get bent over in a business deal.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions regarding the partnership, but I am very comfortable with the situation. What I need is advice on the webhosting/email, etc. Not advice on the pros and cons of starting a partnership. Manwhoring can be a very demanding business and having people their to share the "load" will be helpful... lol

No, that would involve my "Oh" face.

Check out surpasshosting.com Ive used them for a year and they are RARELY down. Choosing what kind of server and how much to spend is kinda hard but you can't go wrong wtih surpasshosting.com Infact do a google search on them and see the amount of positive reviews they have.
