I agree with what others have posted it would be a great addition to have a hosting forum. However I also believe it would quickly become spam central on WPW.
Right now we are on Yahoo shopping, or whatever they are calling it this week, their hosting "solution" is becoming more of a P in the B every day.
I want to try oscommerce, or another program and am open to recommendations. my problem is every time I think I have found a good host I can find more bad things said about them than good. They don't need to be free but until I can get some money flowing from my efforts I don't want to break the bank either. I don't mind starting off with a cheap host and then, even if I have to reduce a bunch of the work, moving it to a more stable and robust hosting company.
thanks for any help and ideas
