    Let me say this is not mine, but it is a friend of mine's

    1000MB Disk Space
    18,000 MB Yearly Transfer
    Control Panel and FTP Access
    99.99% Uptime (Never seen it go down)

    All this costs $7/mo. and my friend says it has to be 1 year contract. So do the math, $84 for a whole year of hosting.

    That seems like a pretty good deal to me.

    Perahaps, but here's the thing:

    Offering those prices you're going to get a lot of fan sites, etc that use up a ton of bandwidth and usually install stupid scripts that cripple servers (like topsites). The price is about average for these types of hosts. I'd almost guarentee that the servers will end up being slow/die often.

    Also good chance that it'll go under (the company) if it's new.

    It's not a new company. It hosts very many other upgraded servers these are just the ones that I am able to sell.

    I would never join a hosting company with which I am unfamiliar and enter immediately into a one-year contract.

    Also, 99.99% uptime is ridiculous and no host would ever obtain that. That is only 52.56 minutes of downtime per year. Remember that many processes such as upgrading Apache and the Linux kernel require either service restarts or full reboots. So either the host is up to date perpetually and fails to meet the uptime amount, or is perpertually out of date and insecure and unstable.

    I personally avoid thes web hosts. For personal homepages where downtime or performance is not that important, these hosts can (!) be an acceptable solution. I would never make a yearly payment anywhere - no matter how low the price is.

    For personal sites I think they're a great value... but I think you can get MUCH better deals than that. Using either UZIPP or Dinsol and godaddy you can get your site hosted under a TLD for under $25/yr (~$2/mo).

    Also like I said, this is server specific. I don't care if a giant webhost like www.fastnet.com started offering those prices on servers, the same thing is going to happen. This is machine specific, not company specific.

    A better host

    I think this is better - but I used a referral link so I'm banned.
