Cheers Julie :)

are you planning on running your own web server or are you relying on hosting and dns services being provided?

So u looking for free hosting or paid professional hosting? as for free hosting, i use the following...

www.freewebsites.com (used to be good before new management)
www.atspace.com (the best ever)
www.bravehost.com (for dummies)

i also use url redirection like hakhawk dus with the co.nr

just recently ive been configuring my own web server using IIS = frustrating grrr

for paid hosting, i wouldnt go for somewhere on the net, i would check out local ISP's, they usually offer hosting. or check out your current ISP services.

she wants a .com so shell have to buy it...

+ wants DNS and Hosting so try domainnames.com... basically itll be a 6 of 1 half a dozen of the other sorta thing. You just want to find an asutralian host with the features included in the plan that you need.

in that case check out your local small time ISP, they should have hosting and domain registeration to suit your needs.
