[WWW Link]HaiSoft (Offices & Servers in France)
http://www.haisoft.net/index.en.php    [New Window]
My Website and e-mail were satisfactorily hosted by this firm for several years. So for an inexpensive hosting package, that is appropriate for a personal or general information Website, this is the provider that I would recommend.
[WWW Link]easyDNS ...Tier 1 DNS services.
http://www.easydns.com/    [New Window]
They offer DNS hosting with back-up e-mail servers, and a Domain Name Registrar. The DNS service includes six redundant (multi-site) servers, with support for dynamic IP Internet connections, all configured via a Web control panel. While for mail delivery problems, they can receive and store e-mail messages, to be forwarded once your main mail server is back on-line. So no matter what other provider I use to actually host my Website and e-mail, the services of easyDNS are what I can always depend upon.
[WWW Link]Freenet6 ...powered by Hexago
