Hi John W,

Firstly I want to thank you for the considerable time and effort you have gone to in your response to my query – the comments and advice are certainly valuable and taken on board.

The unfortunate hard drive issue is a very graphic lesson, something I had not considered. I am finally getting some good “value” and support from an Aussie hosting service that is competitive with the U.S. based hosts so will stay here and not go offshore.

Some additional advice I got was speed of download, apparently a significant factor as far as the big G is concerned, will generally be better for a site if hosted in the target market country, e.g. an AU site hosted in Australia will download faster for an Australian searcher than the same site if it was hosted in the U.S. – would you concur?

Again many thanks for your input, much appreciated.

cheers,
Mike
