    I've been through 4 of them in the last 6 months....

    #1 (Interland) was great, but they WAY overcharged me...

    #2 (Hosting Matters)was decent, but still relatively expensive, and got DoSed like a mofo

    #3 was crap

    #4 (GoDaddy) seemed ok at first, but when I went over my (25 MB ?!?) storage limit, they trippled my charges ?!? And WTF is up with one email per account??? What BS !!

    Someone please tell me of a good host that I can use to host 3-4 domains reasonably cheap (around $4 a month each ?? ) with no big issues. If not, I'm setting up a server here at work. I'm SO SICK of this crap.

    BTW... no hosts better reply to this... you're ALL on my s**t list right now.

    I've used Hostony for about a year now, and they just came out w/ a "Special" plan that allows you to host up to 10 domains on the same account. For $11.85/mo (w/ a year committment, $12.85/mo for 6 months) you get 10 domains, 1 GB storage and 30GB bandwidth. Their support has been pretty fast, and I think I noticed downtime once in the past year. The package seems generous, but I think they give those numbers because they find that most of their customers don't use half of those allotments. Just a suggestion.

    Bummer...

    Do you care much about support? Features? Space, BW?

    It's hard to find a good host, although I've had good luck w/ my experiences

    UH OH Transio, I forgot the word don't in front of "sign-up!"

    j/k, I hope Hostony doesn't crap the bed now that you're on board. I haven't had problems in the past! :-p

    EDIT: And for the record, they're pretty good about upgrading. I upgraded to their special plan when I had 4 months left under their lesser plan: they completely refunded my 4 months and let me upgrade. Not sure if this is a standard hosting practice, but it seems that these days there are few things standard in the hosting business.

    Hey,

    Sorry if I am too late - but we are using http://www.raine-tech.com - cost is $3.95 (or so, under $4 at least) a month for 2 gig bandwidth and 500 mb space. Unlimited SQL tables, unlimited e-mail accounts etc. Check em out, we have had them for almost 2 months now with no problems.

    Too late, I already signed up with hostony.com

    Spluf, what I mean is what's the address of the smtp server?

    e.g. smtp.hostony.com ??
