How to easily choose a Good Web Hosting Plan in a few minutes?

Yes - you can choose a Good Hosting Plan for fulfilling your long outstanding dream of hosting a personal or business website in just a matter of few minutes. I was after some recommendations on web hosting company's and lo I received many responses. So responses even had their affiliate codes on to earn an extra buck from a possible sale from me.

Well, the current webhost I am with is unreliable and has had just too many problems - not just limited to a lot of downtime over the last month and has informed me that my website will be down for about 6 hours today which is simply pathetic.

One of my friend's who is also struck with the same webhost has a business to run and he needs to improve his up-time for his customers, and the only way to do it is to change hosts atleast for him.

I found a great web hosting site, it's got a very simple and intuitive layout. It's very useful because it lists the prices for the hosting and the yearly amount, bandwidth, diskspace, e-mails, etc. It's better than going through separate sites and looking at their info. Also, it lists a ranking for each of the web hosts that helps you make a correct decision. So a very Good luck finding your new host!

How about some Colorful Feather Earrings?

Basically u can tell from looking at the colour of the earrings. While most earrings are plated to give them a shiny finish. There are also some brands may leave just the posts untouched so as to reduce the risk of allergy.

Now if you are aware of what you are allergic to, it would be easy to avoid those material that causes you to itch. If not, i would advise you to avoid all kinds of metal plating except for pure gold and titanium. Because do take note that even silver and stainless steel contain traces of nickel which is the main cause of most allergies.

Colorful Feather Earrings are the fashion norm of today, most flout around with a colorful pair of these earrings. These have authentic feathers which make it that much more interesting and also special. They come in a whole host of colours that truly enhance the feel of having the product. It makes you feel that you really deserve every bit of it and that you are satisfied with it.

Google now offers you Money Saving Tips - courtesy TipJar

Yes you heard me right - the internet behemoth that has amassed fortunes in its Internet business now offers you tips on how to save money. Well, that a very intelligent thought after plan given the current economic crisis.

Head over to TipJar and you can see it all in action. Tip Jar is actually powered by Google Moderator Engine. This itself began as an experiment for the Google App Engine in the early days.

Tip Jar is well thought off and it is segregated into 9 different regions/categories. This allows users to share and receive tips on finance, food, vacation, shopping, kids & family, cars & transit, at home, at work and miscellaneous topics.

But as always, TipJar is riddled with opposition due to the following clauses by Google :
"By posting or voting on a suggestion in Tip Jar feedback, you give Google the right to use it freely without compensation."
and also..
"You agree that Google has no obligation to use any idea or feature request you post or vote on in any Google product, service, or web site. You agree to not post any material that is copyrighted or subject to third party proprietary rights or that violates any third party rights."

What is your opinion on this folks? Do you feel Google must have the last say on this?
