|Question: What type of hosting plan will I need?
That depends on the type of web site you have designed.
If you are just going to have a basic web site using html pages without any online forms or self-administering applications then you can probably get by with a basic unix hosting package.
If you are going to have online forms and self-administering applications or other interactive elements, we design these in ASP (Active Server Pages). ASP requires a Windows server hosting plan.
