Lynn -

Note that we offer our FileMaker Basic account with 1 database for 
$40/month, cheaper than the $60/month you mention.  We also offer 
discounts for multiple-month payments.

Additionally, you can use any HTML-type account to access databases 
on a FileMaker-level account with us, meaning you could get 1 
FileMaker account and multiple other cheaper HTML-type accounts to 
talk to the databases on the main FileMaker account.  You would also 
earn reseller discounts with us in this arrangement.

Have a look at our services at <http://www.pointinspace.com/> if 
you're so inclined, and feel free to ask any questions directly to me 
you may have in addition to the info on our site.

We try to make FileMaker hosting as affordable as possible, while 
maintaing the level of service we've come to be known for.  And our 
services are a great alternative for those who can't (shouldn't have 
to) afford their own servers, software licenses, etc.
