Welcome to Tom's Web Hosting. I'm Tom and I've been getting websites up and running for 21 years and working with computers for 39.

When you need a website let me help you get going with one of the newer services such as Squarespace, SnapPages or Wix! The great thing about these services is you will find them very approachable should you have a desire to get in and DIY. I want to help you at whatever level meets your needs, from as little to as much as you need.

Squarespace, SnapPages and Wix based websites come with different plans starting from around $10.00 per month to host a basic website on up.

If you'd like to get your website going with one of the older website building platforms like WordPress, I can help you there as well. WordPress isn't as user friendly as websites like Squarespace but is a mature product and has a ton of features.

On top of the costs for hosting your website, registering domain names, etc., I charge for my consulting time. My rate is $50 USD per hour, billed in quarter hour increments. The consulting cost for a basic 5 webpage brochure type website is about $250 USD.

If your website needs are more complex or not suited to using one of the above website building platforms we can look at using Django, a website building framework. Django itself is open source and free. The cost for a Django based project would come from buying servers, consulting time to code the website, etc.

To get your website going contact me and let me know what you have in mind for your website. The more detail you can provide the better. Even if you have just a general idea in mind I can guide you to the website you want to have.

If you have questions about Tom's Web Hosting, please ask.

Mark Selected Messages As Deleted


You can now do bulk mark message as deleted and not deleted operations in the Message administration for your websites.

Say you have a product section with lots of related webpages on your website and that you are no longer going to carry that product. Using a bulk operation you can mark the whole product section as deleted with just a few clicks.

Email Preferences Added to User Account Profile


Four checkbox preferences have been added to your user account profile that give you control over most website pending disablement status report emails. These reports are sent when your websites are pending disablement after no payment has been received for your user account. The preferences are...

  • Email two week website status report - pending disablement.

  • Email one week website status report - pending disablement.

  • Email three day website status report - pending disablement.

  • Email one day website status report - pending disablement.

By default the preferences are checked. I encourage you to keep them checked as email, although pretty reliable, is not a perfect system. Emails can and do get lost and misplaced and you should only be receiving these emails when your websites are about to go offline.

Allowed HTML Elements


You can now control what HTML markup elements (tags) are allowed to be entered into your discussion messages.

There is a list of builtin markup elements that can be toggled between allowed and not allowed. The list of builtin elements is from XHTML Modularization 1.1 - Second Edition.

You can also add your own custom elements.

See How To Edit Allowed HTML Elements.

When a non-allowed element is entered it is escaped. The escaping happens after the markup language for your message is rendered.
