The 4400 and webpage issues..  
Oh, wow. I loved the season finale of The 4400!!!

So many things were started because of this episode.. The last minute or two, when they showed the montage of after-effects... wow!! It was so surreal, and I REALLY am interested in what happens from now on!! *jumps around* I wonder when the next season will start.... OMG I want some of that serum too! No fair-- share onegaishimaaasu!!

On that note, I wonder when the new seasons of The Simple Life, The Amazing Race, and Survivor will start. I can't remember if there were any more that I used to watch. Mmm... Does anyone want to recommend anything good to me that's starting up this fall? (and their homepage) I used to watch Joan of Arcadia, but stopped being able to dl it, and I don't know where I left off anymore.... Oh, and of course I have to watch The Simpsons and South Park and the best of the best, The O.C. (OMG IT STARTS NEXT WEEK!!!!!! WAI!!!!!!!)!

The Reunion looks like it might be a good show. I hope I can get this one..

And oh man, Densha Otoko!! I LOVED episode 8!! OMG HOW CUTE!! XDXD

Mmm.. I want to start up my own webpage for my art, and about Tenimyu and stuff. I already have picked the domain name (not tenimyu related), but can anyone recommend a good hosting service? I need unlimited space and either really high or unlimited bandwith? I have an idea of one host already (same as Athy's), but they had issues with me being out of the country. -_-;; And I still don't know how I'm going to pay for it.. but one step at a time. *is broke*

I drew for Anizona... LOL but my idea was retarded.. but I'm going to work with it and see if I can salvage it before sending it to Athy. XD;;; *dies of retardedness* I also want to draw other things. I REALLY need to work on that! *needs to do job-related things too but keeps putting them off*

Uh, good luck finding unlimited webspace and bandwidth for a reasonable price. .>_>;

The only thing I would be able to recommend is Host Excellence. My friend has a corporate account ($25/mo) with them and that's where I host BC.net. Corporate accounts get unlimited webspace (you get 10GB at first but you can ask them to make it higher when you're closing in on that cap) and 200GB bandwidth. You also get 6 FREE domain names. (They're free for as long as you host with them.) You can host a max of 10 domains.

Uhh... of course there are some downs.
1. I hate their web panel
2. They don't allow copyrighted material but I've gotten away with it so far with BC.net, though actually they warned me to delete stuff unless I show them that I own the stuff that's on my site, which I don't, of course. But they haven't really done anything. I should start BC.net up again. It's been on hiatus.
3. Connecting with the above, they may get suspicious if you keep asking them to make the webspace limit higher. Though since I guess most of your site is for your drawings, they won't think too much about it if you just say you host your artwork on there.
4. Can't resume using FTP. (!!!!!!)

The good
1. Unlimited webspace!
2. Decent bandwidth
3. $25/mo isn't too bad
4. Free domain names. How it works is that you get domain tokens. Each one (you'd get 6 with a corporate account) is good for one year of domain name registration. You can get 6 entirely different domains, or you can use the tokens all on one domain, so you'd be able to register a name for 6 years, or any combination you want. Before each year is up, they'll give you 6 more tokens with a corporate account so you can extend the registration of your domain.

So yeah, I like their features but their web panel is crap. So's their FTP cuz you can't resume. (WTF?!) But the unlimited webspace is nice and the price isn't too bad.

Feel free to ask me any questions if you have any.

It sounds good, except that the place that I'm having troubles with is only about $10 a month for unlimited... I was hoping to find something similar that won't keep telling me that I'm a fraud using a stolen credit card because it comes from a japanese IP. ^^;;

$10?!?! OMG, tell me what hosting this is. .O_O

But don't spread it around! ^.^ I'll delete this comment afterwards.. ^^
Mewgokumew2 on August 31st, 2005 03:56 pm (UTC)
*nod* But um... You get only 50GB of bandwidth. .>_>;
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 31st, 2005 04:14 pm (UTC)
I wonder about that though... I've hosted videos, mp3s, pictures, and stuff on them... and never had a problem at all.. and that's in addition to the actual site that my friends run. 50gb isn't enough, you don't think?
Mewgokumew2 on August 31st, 2005 04:22 pm (UTC)
Well, I'm used to seeing plans that have at least 100GB of bandwidth.
I think the fact that they give you only 50GB of bw is the reason why they offer unlimited webspace. I mean, even if you have all this stuff uploaded, if your site gets tons of hits, the bandwidth wouldn't hold out. You know what I mean?

My CWY site is hosted on my friend's DreamHost account. She's got like 364GB of bandwidth. (DH ups your bandwidth every week, which is real cool.) Depending on what content we put up, we can use over 150GB when we've only got a little over 7GB of webspace. Hopefully that gives you a good idea. .^^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 31st, 2005 04:28 pm (UTC)
Hmmm... All of the places that I'm looking at charge setup fees unless I pay a year or more in advance. I don't have the money in my us account to do it right now. Have you heard of any places that are have specials or anythign with no setup fees?

Yeah, I'm looking at other places with better bandwith now. X_x Dude I just hate the thought of limiting what I put up... I'm paying for it after all.
Mewgokumew2 on August 31st, 2005 04:32 pm (UTC)
They usually only waive setup fees and stuff if you pay fully in advance. =.\

Well, you only pay so much.
The more you pay, the more you get. Unfortunately that's how it goes.

That Gold Plan of IX WebHosting does look really good though. 500GB should be enough for you. (That's quite a lot, actually. .^^;) I think I might show this site to my friend. We've been looking for a new hosting service to replace Host Excellence, and this place gives you more for $5 less.

You say you only have $40 in your PayPal account. Maybe you can hold off on getting hosting until you have enough to pay for a year? Then you won't have to worry about paying for your site every month and during that time, you can work and save for next year's payment or something.

Mmm... the problem is that it's so expensive to transfer money to America.. -_- And I'm impatient. (mostly that I'm impatient..)

Either way I'll have to hold off until I get the money. And unfortunately they require 2 years in advance. Gah.... oi oi.

Hmm.. have you ever heard of this site?

http://www.ixwebhosting.com/

Mewgokumew2 on August 31st, 2005 04:24 pm (UTC)
I haven't heard of that before but it sounds rather promising.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 31st, 2005 04:28 pm (UTC)
Except for their setup fees and paying for a year in advance without even trying it. I only have about $40 in my paypal account, so I can't charge more than that..
Mewgokumew2 on August 31st, 2005 04:35 pm (UTC)
Geh. This site uses H-Sphere control panel, just like Host Excellence. .>_< I hate H-Sphere... Well, what you get for the plan is worth it.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 31st, 2005 04:43 pm (UTC)
Huh? I have no idea what that is...

I just want to upload via ftp. That's all I really need. ^^;;

But I can't find any information about whether I can put mp3s on the site either. X_x I have to be able to.
