Got a question, hope someone can answer... What's the best iPage web hosting for me? Looking forward for any answer or 2. Another question... How do I figure out what browser is suitable to veiw my site? And how do I tell viewers about other things they need? Like if my iPage site needs cookies turned on, or needs some things downloaded to view stuff? Where is there a place where I can check all this stuff to show my viewers about optimising their stay at my site?..

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..

Not sure if I understand... you mean like an HTML validator type thing? something that will look at your site? or you want a browser compatibility comparison chart?..

Comment #2

EXACTLY. you're getting into murky waters when you attempt to make a fully cross-platform, cross-browser compatible site. best to use your eyes and the eyes of people who have platforms/browsers you may not be running...

Comment #3

You could use Request.ServerVariables and track which browsers are used most often when people come to your site..

For more info:.


Comment #4

No no no mans! I'm asking what software people need to view my site, not what is commonly used. So with that information, I can put it on my iPage site so people can view my iPage site better...

You want us to tell you what people need to view your site?.

You should already know that, you have a flash banner, so tell them to have the latest flash plugin and provide them with a link to download it from macromedia..

Tell them what screen resolution you would prefere them to use, and what broswer would be best and version number...

Yes, anyone can go through their iPage site and look at what people need to view it. I don't want to do that, since I might skip something. And I don't know what browser is compatible with my html...

Unless you're doing something funky like Iframes with your code, just assume that it'll be fine..

Unless you're inserting weird objects like Java stuff, just assume that it'll be fine..

Unless you're calling up content with bizarre extensions, such as .ART or .OGG, just assume that it'll be fine..


They will need an HTML4.0+ compatible browser which can display basic images, and the Flash plug-in..

Plus an operating system, a modem, and an account with an ISP...

Comment #8

Is there a Netscape or Microsoft iPage website that tells what each browser can do?.

What about the colors I use on my site? I use some of those new-age colors that wasn't in the hexadecimal charts if you go back a few years...

Comment #9

1) that's what the browser comparison charts are for... the link I posted above is a google query with some good tables telling what all kinds of browsers (on various platforms) can do..

2) use the 216-colour web-safe pallette:.
