RE: Helping a friend start up a web based business

Eunice and Jared,
Thanks to the 2 of you for the productive feedback and web references! I
will certainly check these out. At this point, I'm not nearly as
concerned over what language to use (I've developed with ASP, JSP,
servlets before there was JSP, and Rails). I want to explore the domain
and hosting options, help this person put together a business model to
work off of, and develop some type of strategy around marketing
practices, transaction flow, and customer support. I'll certainly take
the various technical aspects into consideration at the points where
they are applicable, but the choice of website technology is only one of
a wide number of factors at this stage. 

I'm sorry to have not been logged in since posting the question on
Friday. This enquiry was strictly intended to serve as a request for
feedback by those on the list whom I know have been down this road and
might be able to offer some pointers as Jared and Eunice have done. Lets
please drop this whole flaming thread and get back to the business of
programming and technology. I welcome any additional constructive info
anyone has to offer but lets drop the personal attacks and act like
professionals please!

Hi There,

I was using Ultra Host, but transferred to Tiger Technologies for 2
reasons. 
(1)  I can pay monthly, and (2)  I get my domain free through them for
as 
long as I have my site with them, but the domain is mine; I simply have
to 
pay the balance if I decide to go through another host.  Also, their 
packages are rather good; I just wish they had Fantastico available.
Hmm, 
might check into that.  If you wish to check Tiger Tech out use the
below 
link.  LOL, I too wish I had a referral currently setup, but...Here it
is.

http://www.tigertech.net

If you want any help or questions answered; I'm glad to try and help.
Just 
let me know what your preferred method of talking is, and I'm sure we
can 
arrange something.

HTH,
Eunice

All,
Hoping someone can point me to some documentation or a host. I have a
friend who is wanting to start an internet based business. We need to
find out how to purchase a domain name and get some space on a web host
somewhere. Any pointers would be helpful.
