PostSubject: We have some decisions to make   Thu Jun 11, 2009 6:14 pm

So I have been thinking about this whole website thing and have been throwing around whether or not I should purchase a domain from a webhosting company. The benefits of that would be the site would look more professional because they have more bells and whistles. Well I was just talking to a support person at one of these web hosting companies and he said I could transfer what we have here to the new one but that it is kind of complicated. They do have people that can do it for you but it costs quite a bit. He said the best thing for me to do is to just put a link on the new site to the forums here. So in essence we would have 2 different sites. The new website would be like the homepage and this site would be the community where people could post. So what do you think? LOL someone on the American Idol boards was complaining about how my site was not professional so it just got me thinking that we needed something less home made. Now I just need to find a good webhosting place if that is what we are going to do. Anyone know of one?

I witnessed that little incident yesterday, LOL.

While I do LOVE THIS PLACE and appreciate all that you do, I do think that if we had more of a professional looking site, it would attract more people and more would be likely to join. I mean a lot of us already knew eachother, so most of us stuck around, not really caring what it looked like. But, new site=new members=more members=MORE SUPPORT FOR MATT GIRAUD. ~ sounds good to me.

I also don't mind going to both sites using a link.

To answer your other question: not sure about the whole webhosting place, or even what it means, LOL. sorry : /

I have heard of godaddy so I will definitely check it out. I am looking for a certain look so I need to find the place with the right templates. I want it to look like this...

http://3doorsdown.com/home.aspx

And we just can't make that happen here...believe me when I say I have tried exhaustively! But the good think is we can still grow in our member numbers here if we keep both.

I saw you there and you were very sweet to stick up for our little site here. Thanks!

Well my other obsession is 3 Doors Down...sadly since Matt I haven't been able to devote much time to them though. Crying or Very sad

Like Matt they are all about the music and are amazing musicians! Oh and of course they have a hot website...have to have a hot website for a hot band! Same goes for Matt!

Just curious--what would be on this new site, if the forum we have now will remain intact?

Hi Jenna! I think having the 2 sites wouldn't be a problem at all. Also, I never thought the boards didn't look professional, you've done a great job! All f your hard work has been awesome and very appreciated. As far as the webhosting, I have no clue, sorry! But again, the 2 sites sounds fine to me : )

Thanks but I have been unhappy with the homepage for a while. I just want something bigger and better... LOL yup I'm 12.

If anyone who knows how to do this stuff wants to help I would love that. Like Cindyy I could use your graphic skills...LOL!

What do you think of this webhosting company? It's a little more expensive but it has some great layouts.

On this page, http://www.hostbaby.com/features_templates I like layouts #12, 13(cause it just looks cool. Although, it doesn't fit Matty very well) and 22 (i like this one the most, for obvious reasons)

LOL those are the exact ones I liked! You have good taste. I do believe you can change the colors and personalize them.

Haha! Oh, that's awesome! # 22 would look pretty sick in black & white, although I like the red too (personal bias, cause it's my favorite color.)

So - I'm in either way. But I must say, that I like the "old" homepage. You just feel the love coming right at you when you open that page Very Happy The new one (eg. 22) does have a cleaner and more prof look and could attract more people. But I just love all of those sweet pictures, quotes, moving "sigs" etc - I just do Laughing

The good thing about keeping this site open and putting the link on the new website is we can keep the homepage up or delete it. So we can have the best of both worlds...professional and home made...LOL. I was going to close the homepage here but I can keep it open if people like?

I like that idea;both worlds. The professional,informative,cool sight for the newcomers and surffers and then to be able to dig deep in the home world and enjoy. It somehow suits to Matt,passionate ambitious professional and funny lovely joker.

I think what you did here is amazing. I appreciate all you do with this site.
What ever you decide to do, I'll be fine with. If you need help, I'll be more than happy to help out.

Just say the word.

Thanks Again Jenna, for all that you do.

Thank you everyone. The only help I need right now is finding the best hosting place. I am having trouble choosing.

I'm ready to purchase the new website but I'm nervous because I'm not sure what hosting company to choose. I want to make sure we have the right one. The one I was considering going with I don't think will work. I looked at Godaddy, yahoo, and fatcow but the templates are not what I'm looking for. LOL I need someone to make this decision for me.

Well I just purchased our new site.... http://www.justhost.com/


Now I just have to figure out how to create it LOL!

The domain name (as it won the poll) is mattgiraudfans.net.

I'll keep everyone posted on my progress!
