Is the server platform important?
What about separating your dial up and your Web hosting service?
If you do that, you can dial up with whoever you want, and using any ID -
not just your domain name, but pay to have your site hosted on any server
that fulfills your needs, e.g. in the USA - where there are a lot of
Mac-based servers, and in general Webhosting services seem to be much more
feature-laden, and cheaper - which you remotely access from your dial-up
Although I don't use SSI or ColdFusion, I do use a Web hosting service in
the USA, UltimateHost <http://www.ultimatehost.com>, which has some useful
CGIs free to use and already installed, and I access it via my BTInternet
Anytime account, £15.99, 12 hours a day unmetered access, or my FreeServe
I'm a Mac-based guy, too, as is the company whose site I manage on
UltimateHost. The servers are Unix or Windows-based, I forget which, but
that's not an obstacle for us, as they have a set of Web-based controls that
are cross platform.
Hope this may help.
Best of luck!
