One of our new members is currently on the lookout for a dependable and high-speed web hosting provider for his online store, and would love some recommendations and/or details of positive experiences with this type of hosting. He's feeling a bit overwhelmed by the sheer number of options available. Of course, some more details about the site he's planning to host are needed, with the usual questions posted about preferred location, size of site, number of products being listed, budget, etc. As often happens on WHT, the discussion opens up to a more general conversation about the current processors available (Ryzen CPUs in particular), and the ongoing Intel v AMD debate. So, whether you have experience of running online e-commerce websites, or how different CPUs handle such sites, come and share your expertise in the thread.
Joseph is looking for the most robust and fully featured options for email hosting, and would also like to know which email hosting providers are the most competitively priced. His priority is a functioning webmail interface with IMAP/SMTP access. After a number of suggestions covering well known options such as GMail or Zoho, other email-only providers like Migadu and Mxroute, and the suggestion that he could use a regular hosting account's email features, he's still comparing features, ease of use, reliability and storage. It doesn't sound like he's considered a regular hosting account's email features as an option and is asking if they generally use an off-the-shelf email hosting solution that is often the same (or similar) to other hosting providers, or are there any particular hosting companies better suited with a superior email product compared to other hosts? Can you help him figure out the best solution for his needs?
