Cheap Web Hosting
I’ve been getting a bunch of emails lately from personal finance enthusiasts looking to get started in the blog world and looking for suggestions on a good but cheap web host. I’ve personally tried a bunch of cheaper “shared” web hosting, some good but also quite a few bad ones. From my experience, the best bang for your buck web host that I’ve found is lunarpages. Their regular price / month is $6.95, but for the fall season, they are offering all 12/24 month terms the reduced price of $4.95/mo. This pricing includes a free domain name along with unlimited bandwidth/storage. For the features, reliability, available support and money back guarantee, the current pricing is a steal.
The current market correction has got people squirming in their seats. What’s causing the TSX to slide? A couple factors; global recession fears and crashing commodities prices. What do you do? As I’ve mentioned before, if you are invested for the long term, ignore the markets and stay invested. If you were to chart this “crash” 20 years from now, you would barely notice the dip on the ascending slope. Personally, whenever the market corrects, I follow my stock watch list closely to see if my favorite stocks meet my target buy prices. Come to think about it, maybe the RBS prediction of a global market crash was partially correct?
