I don't know if this is on topic for this list, but i haven't seen this
discussed anywhere else. I've seen ads for virtual hosts, and home pages,
but not the cost for setting up &/or administrating mailing lists.
I'm interested in setting up a couple of private subscription mailing lists.
They would be no charge items for the first year (approx). The lists would
be for our clients, for the auction industry in general, and for
auctioneers. So it would probably be 1 list to start, going to 2 or 3
total. membership would be light at first, but i see it growing into 3
digits on some of the lists within a year. I don't know about message
traffic, but i would imaging it would remain light (10 messages a day) over
the first 6 months.
I have no desire to learn or get involved with Unix, but i could also do
administration if it was laid out for me.. (me, that's a DOS expert,
windows novice+, clipper programmer). Can anyone give me an idea of what is
should cost to have someone set up and host and help me when i need it in
running these lists ? I currently have your basic ppp connection, and we've
obtained our domain name cus.com. I plan on setting up a virtual server by
the end of April and moving to a "real" one as the cost becomes justified.
Again, sorry if i'm off topic, i know this isn't an administration question,
but if anybody has any clues as to where else to ask, or any answers, i'd be
