Thanks David I'll have a look at NetKnow. I have been looking at Australian hosts and the problem I seem to be encountering is that I have both the com and the com.au domains and having both pointing to the same site is driving the costs up higher with most servers. it's driving me crazy.

yeah, that can be a surprisingly big part of the cost of being hosted. I've considered getting the .ca domain along with the .com, but I can't justify the cost. one thing you can do though is host the domain with someone besides your actual web host, since there's quite a few "bargain" domain hosts out there.

Sanda, as a proud Aussie I personally hate a .com address for an Australian business - but that is just me. I understand that due to web browsers defaulting to .com that it can help the lazy or folk who can't remember the full URL find your site by just entering your easy to remember name.

So my vote would be to save the money and use .com.au - unless you feel that the advantages of .com outweigh the local tag.

Sanda,

One thing you could do is do a redirect from one registered domain to another. You usually can get away with the cheapest hosting program for the redirect from site.

That would be the least expensive route for you to take. Some of the "free" hosting services will let you redirect, but you are required to allow the "customer" to stay on the page for at least 10 seconds. Some do this and don't have any limits, you can do this with HTML code and the customer won't even know they have been redirected.

HTH

Paul

Stephen I love me AU address but it's good business to have both. The com one does bring in business and that's why I use it.

Paul, that's a good idea I'll look into it. Thanks

epson 2200 questions

I too am starting a home business and have heard that the 2200 is a great printer. I haven't heard any comments on the postscript rip for the 2200.

I had a rip for my 1280 and loved it but they dont make a 1280 rip for OSX.
My dilemma is, I'm being forced to buy a new print just because of the rip. I work in Quark mostly, but sometimes Indesign. Photoshop and Illustrator also. Can anyone out there give me good advice on a printer with color postscript rip that works well for page layout?
