    If they are web hosting, shouldn't matter what they use on their end as far as software...you may want to make sure they support php, perl, cgi, ssl, asp, etc.

    SSL may not even be that important if you aren't doing e-business, or sending info that needs to be encrypted.

    also php, perl, anc asp will depend on whether you plan to have any of that on your site.

    But basically a host is just someone who allows you to keep your site on their servers, so a mac user can upload their files to a linux server, mac server, windows server, whatever, and everything should work fine. maybe some people just have a preference.

    Best,

    I have one of their dedicated server accounts. It's pretty nice especially the (almost) unmetered bandwidth and the remote admin tools (serial console, remote reboot etc..). I manage this myself tho, I don't know what the managed packages are like.

    Do you have the US or the UK version? I tried to buy a 1&1 hosting account in the uk but it wouldent work. I want the us version (more bandwidth) but it had to use the UK version. So now im with Godaddy (whitch is great)

    I use ICDsoft.com for most of my clients.
    No-nonsense hosting with lots of features and good support.

    I use Adobe GoLive and Fetch for uploading files to the server.
