There were so many places to see in Bali that my friend decided to join the tours to see as much as possible. My friend stayed in Kuta on arrival. He spent the first three days swimming and surfing on Kuta beach. He visited some tour agents and selected two tours. The first one was to Singaraja, the second was to Ubud.
On the day of the tour, he was ready. My friend and his group drove on through mountains. Singaraja is a city of about 90 thousands people. It is a busy but quiet town. The street are lined with trees and there are many old Dutch houses. Then they returned very late in the evening to Kuta.
The second tour to Ubud was a very different tour. It was not to see the scenery but to see the art and the craft of the island. The first stop was at Batubulan, a center of stone sculpture. There my friend watched young boys were carving away at big blocks of stone. The next stop was Celuk, a center for silversmiths and goldensmiths. After that he stopped a little while for lunch at Sukawati and on to mass. Mass is a tourist center
My friend ten-day-stay ended very quickly beside his two tour, all his day was spent on the beach. He went sailing or surfboarding every day. He was quiet satisfied.

Web site appears more important and it simply becomes the second home in virtual world. Surely it is very reasonable to selectively choose web hosting company for building, managing and maintaining the web.
There are a lot of hosting companies. They provide several services to convince the customer and try to represent as the best web hosting company. Actually customers will get benefit. Customers will have alternatives to be chosen. Which one is the most suitable for them? There are some aspects which have to be considered before choosing one.
Feature looks like to be the most considering aspect. Does the hosting company provide all features which we need? Make a list of them then check whether they are available or not in the package. Compare the volume or quality of the feature. It is reasonable or not.
Cheap price will be the favorite one. Everyone will like the cheap price. However it can not be said that it is cheap or expensive if there are not compared products referring to the feature and quality. For example try to compare Hon Monster, Host Gator, Yahoo Host and other host companies.
Many things have to be known before choosing one but the included feature and offered price might be the main aspects to be considered.
