Do they give you a permanent IP address? If not, you're going to have to subscribe to some dynamic IP service so people can actually get to your site. But quite frankly running a commercial website (I assume so because you'll be accepting CC payments) using dynamic IP feels a bit dodgy to me. Surely a commercial operation can afford the USD 10-20/month for a decent web host? -- Jason Wong -> Gremlins Associates -> www.gremlins.com.hk Open Source Software Systems Integrators * Web Design & Hosting * Internet & Intranet Applications Development * /* A new koan: If you have some ice cream, I will give it to you.
