    I recently was looking for cheap, no-frills hosting for ryanjahrman.com, which I was just going to use for my e-mail. I found jv-hosting.net, which had good reviews and, at $5 a year, was worth the risk. Although there was a problem with the e-mail for a few days, and tech support isn't the fastest, it has all-in-all been a good experience.

    And then, today, I discovered myvaluehost.com offering $4 domains. It looks as if this is just to promote their services as a host, but you don't have to buy hosting from them, too. I e-mailed their support (couldn't find a TOS), and they confirmed that I have ownership of the domain, and that I can change nameservers. So far that's been true (but we'll see if my nameservers resolve . . . the interface they resell for isn't very good).

    But if everything is true, that means you could have hosting and a domain for $9/year!

    Just something for people that were going to go with free hosting . . . this really is a "buyer's market."

    (I'm not affiliated with these companies, just a happy customer.)

    And BTW, I just had a horrible experience with my second domain from HostWay . . . so I'm no longer sure I'd recommend them.

    You'd (the impersonal "you") would be an idiot to pay that little for hosting...it's just asking for trouble.
