A hidden value
This is my first time using a web host. I chose Tripod because they were free but I soon ran out of space and had to upgrade. That was ok because the free account gave me the opportunity to test the site.
Their server speed and customer service is outstanding. I have only had a couple of problems but were quickly resolved via a short wait on the phone.
I am using FTP so I can't comment on any of their site builder tools.
I am thinking about changing hosts because Tripod does not support PHP or My SQL but the reviews I read about other hosts scare me to death.
Biggest Pro: Server speed, customer service, ease of use
Biggest Con: Does not support PHP or MySQL
