Web and email hosting

I would really like to switch from GoDaddy for our email and Web hosting services. I believe you told me that Google can also handle this. Is that correct, and if so, can you point me to the Web page that will explain it?

I definitely believe that Google Apps is the best choice for email hosting. It also includes Google Docs and Calendar hosting, as well as Google Sites, for building ad hoc web sites that can be shared strictly internally or to the world. These are good for things like individual projects, or quick reference documentation.

Google does not offer conventional web hosting, but there are lots of possibilities for that. If you are going to design a new site, the go-to platform for web sites is currently WordPress, but I am building my new site in Squarespace. It’s simply fantastic.

If you are keeping your current design, I could recommend staying with GoDaddy just for web hosting. Some folks take issues with GoDaddy, regarding everything from business practices to aesthetics to animal rights and gender roles. Because of their recent support of the impossibly stupid Stop Online Piracy Act, I will likely move my own domains to another registrar such as NameCheap or Hover.

There are lots of excellent alternatives. Lemme know more about your needs.
