I cant discuss it on open forums,

But I have two choices which would interest you, a recommendation to the site i currently work with for cheap, or to come on board as one of our first customers with a new company we are setting up ( an old college mate and another) for even cheaper.

Both profesionally designed, add me to msn, tony@ siteboxdesigns.com to discuss more

Erm, I run through about 5-7 websites a day at work, and its kind of hard to remember all of them, so give me a moment so I can try to recall some..

I cant really give any out for this new company yet as we are setting up at the mo still, idealy we are looking for example sites..

I can show you sites of the company I work for which I work on, and design.

But i cant show you any personal sites as last time I did that on this forum the bandwidth went through the roof! haha

One is on an linux based server the cheaper one and the other is on a windows based server.


Which one you get really depends on the which code you want the dynamic code in.

I like PHP and would go for the Linux one. But it's up to the site designer at the end of the day.

It all depends what you want the site to do. Static HTML then go on the Linux one. No need paying the extra if you not going to use any databases etc. If you are as Ed meantion its all up to the site designer. On which code they prefer.

What about a wendesday?

All depends on what you want i prefer linux for a standard website witha few features.

But for a more advance site I prefer ASP/VB so a windows server.

Linux for stability yeah, but ASP.net don't run to well on it thats if he is going to develope a .NET solution. But i imagine it will be a straight forward html or maybe php/jsp site.

TBH if you want a professional looking database driven website then it is pointless trying to do it yourself IMO.

But then again paying a company to do it won't be cheap either, as soon as you mention the word database to a professional web design company, their prices easily go over 1500.

Do you just want a static website to advertise the company or do you want an online catalog?
