Which is the right hosting product for me?
Our product table gives a quick summary and comparison of products to help pin point what you need. For starters, the PowerWeb Starter and Basic options allow you to get your online presence up and running. With up to 60 GB of web space, these products are ideal for private web projects and smaller projects. Our four hosting products differ in the amount of web space available, and also the number of domains mailboxes, databases, and web applications, included. If you have more family members using email, or if you have a significant amount of traffic on your website, a larger package would be right for you. For demanding requirements and dynamic websites, we recommend our PowerWeb Basic and Pro options.
