Reviews and Coupons for Hostgator
We all want inexpensive web hosting, but the cost is not the only factor that you should take into account. One good reason is that many hosts offer cheap hosting plans initially to gain a market share but then can't keep up with the demand. As a consequence, the level of service suffers. For many webmasters, it makes more sense to use a web host that has been around for a while.
Top14webhosts.com reviews most of the established hosting companies and provides a detailed over view of the packages and services they offer. If you're looking for cheap web hosting, then this is the kind of site you need to study, as it gives you the facts along with opinion and experience from people who've hosted plenty of sites.

Compliance with UK Building Regulations
Air naturally leaks from most buildings around doors and windows, and through gaps and cracks in walls and floors. However, excess levels of air leakage leads to uncomfortable draughts for the occupants and high heating costs.
A number of companies in the UK now offer air tightness testing for new build homes and commercial buildings. Some can even help private home owners who want to improve the energy efficiency of their houses. These companies should be registered with the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing and be able to test air leakage to the standard required by Local Authority Building Control and the Air Tightness Testing and Measurement Association (ATTMA).
Leema Technologies are fully qualified to these standards, and can also call upon in-house architects who can offer advice on how to comply with regulations and sustainable building techniques. Leema Technologies are based in the Midlands and test buildings for airtightness throughout the UK. Visit their website at www.leematech.co.uk for more air permeability testing information.

Don't forget - Search Engines Like Valid Code!
Well, search engines have to parse (read) the code of your site to find the content and decide how to classify and rank the page. If the code contains errors, your SEO efforts may be wasted because the search engines won't be able to read the page.
Most major search engines are fairly robust and can deal with minor errors in HTML code, but do you want to take the risk? Your code is one of the few things you have complete control over from an SEO point of view so you may as well make it as good as possible.
The best way to validate HTML code is to use the W3C HTML Validator - they make the rules so they ought to know. Popular HTML editors such as Dreamweaver usually have built in validation tools as well.
