Default Website Suggestions wanted

Well me and acouple class mates are going to begin working on a website based on gaming news. Imagine something like IGN or Gamespot.

Right now were trying to come up with a name, and are looking for suggestions. Two that are floating around are Gamers Choice and Void Gamers. Anyone have anything intersting?

Another thing were looking into is hosting, we know there are plenty free ones but were looking for a good large dedicated host with domains, we are willing to pay a reasonable price for it also. So if anyone knows of any please dont be shy to share

This site is mostly being made so when we get a break from coding we can do something fun that involves games.since we are gaming nuts...

Your best bet is to start looking at different hosts on the net. Some may suit your needs better than others and of course prices can vary. I wish I could recomend one but I have always used free hosts or used the universities web site.

I would most definately steer clear of a free host for your sutuation though. I remember a few years ago you could have a decent page on some of them. Now they restrict bandwidth per hour etc and then shut off the page if you exceed it.

Also depending on what you are doing make sure the host is running ASP support so you can do more than just HTML pages.

If you want a reliable host, make sure you steer clear from the few dollar a month hosts. Look for something in the 7 - 10 per month range. That seems to be the magic number for reliablitiy (of course there are exceptions to the rule on both sides of the spectrum, but from a business standpoint, charging a few dollars a month leaves no room for growth because your profit margin is so low that once the company starts to grow it implodes)

Also, be aware of overselling. The practice of selling more bandwidth per account than you actually have. (The idea is that most customers don't use all their bandwidth, so that will cover for the ones that do) There's nothing wrong with that in itself, unless the host oversells too much, and breeds an ureliable server to host your webpage.
