I know this isn't about hosting but dealing with BT hosting department and their mutlple websites for consumer/business/whatever is a nightmare.
The webpages are a circle of 'click here to do this' and 5 clicks later you are back where you started.
If you need anything slightly odd like webhost with someone else, while keeping email with BT, you have to send them account number, billing number, billing date, secret password, mother's maiden name - that is not an exaggeration.

Read 'Star King' when I was 15 or so and thought it was one of the best I'd read and boy I was reading a lot of SF then. I still have it, um, 40 years on. It's a brill space opera .. as I recall.
