The free IETester application allows you to test IE10 preview, IE9, IE8, IE7 IE 6 and IE5.5 on Windows 7, Vista and XP, and requires no installation of separate virtual images. I've been using it for several years for IE tests without issue. I don't know of an 'official' alternative from Microsoft, but it's possible that they'll be dropping support for the ...

Check out http://whatsmyuseragent.com/ and you'll see something like this: (Emphasis mine) This is deliberate on Microsoft's behalf to fool naïve user-agent checks into thinking that it's not Internet Explorer.

I think anyone who can provide decent windows hosting will suffice. My vote would be for Rackspace. One other thing I've just remembered: Rackspace do managed sharepoint hosting (although I don't know if managed is the right word) so you don't have to worry about any of the hosting.

This isn't a true list for both Google and Microsoft, but it lists the ones Google hosts: http://scriptsrc.net/ and provides nice JS for copying the needed HTML. Google also hosts the CSS and associated images for jQuery UI at //ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.2/themes/blitzer/jquery-ui.css where blitzer is the theme name.

StartCom are in the Microsoft list of root certificate issuers. The process whereby the certificates get updated is described here. In brief - the certificates are recognised by the operating system, not on the browser version.

Interesting - I never knew that! Just tested from my custom web server (Rapid Server) and got the same results (3 GET requests after clicking on a hyperlink), so we know it's not the web server: 127.0.0.1:1062 - - [17/Oct/2014:03:57:45 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 0 127.0.0.1:1063 - - [17/Oct/2014:03:57:47 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 0 127.0.0.1:1064 - - ...

I has been a while since I've done this, but I believe that Google Doc's export to HTML works better than MS Word and I believe that Google Docs will read Word docs, so you might be able to load the doc into Google Docs and export it that way.

From the previous times I have used it, I don't recall being prompted for a restart (although I usually install manually). The best way to verify this would be to setup a dev server and test it.

Is it safe to delete everything in the root of the host and upload my new website? Yes. None of those directories are required to the webserver to operate.
