+1. I would add one caveat, though - about 3 years ago, I portscanned my 
own website, and in response, my hosting firm blocked my IP from 
accessing the site at all. Since I was curious to know what a potential 
client might think of my security, seeing the site appear to go down in 
the face of a simple nmap scan was *not* the impression I was trying to 
give! I'm with a more sensible webhost now.
