Fun and Adventures in Setting up a Website

So far, I’ve tried two website providers, one is Webhostingpad.com. No doubt, they are a nice company, but the setting up of the site was hanging up on them noticing that I was in China whilst the address I gave is in the USA. That’s my billing address for my credit card, I said. Since I couldn’t call them, you can’t call international direct without a calling card, they sent me a PDF form for me to fill out and fax my card number with signature.

I’m in the land of copiers, people who can duplicate anything, and I’m supposed to fax credit card and signature info? I told Webhostingpad to make my day and cancel the order. They were asking for the same info I’d already given them, and they wanted me to out it at risk via fax. Genius.
