    I've been using Bluehost for about a year now for hosting a website; however, one of my admins tell me that it's more expensive then it should be. What is a good and cheap web-host provider other than bluehost? Is there cheaper?

    One that I found was: 1dollar-webhosting.com

    Web hosting is one of those things that " you get what you pay for ", yeah what you have may be a little more expensive than say a hundred other hosting providers... But here is what I've found with many "cheap" hosting providers.

    Slow response times ( server response times )
    Plagued with internal dns issues
    Minimal scripting support ( if any )
    Slow if any tech support
    Support staff is either arrogant or completely useless

    I've used hosting from all levels, what I've learned before I started running my reseller, the big companies may charge a little more, but they tend to have a lot better equipment, backbone connections, more stable dns structures, more knowledgeable support staff and on and on and on.

    So if your current host is providing sevice at a good level, and youre not having any issues, it might be best to leave things as they are. Cheaper is not always better.

    Go with a WELL Named place. Not something like 1dollar-webhosting.com if you want something you can trust.
    ie GoDaddy

    Hostmantis...fastest severs in the net, loaded cpanel and fast support.
    We use them for a lot of small business sites.
    http://www.hostmantis.com

    KVCH...unlimited but manage their servers well...very fast support and also has a loaded cpanel.
    They also have a $20.00 for life hosting plan that we use also for our start up small business clients.
    Not much difference than their regular paid hosting.

    And! we're not affiliates of any web hosting company.

    One of your "admins", assuming (s)he's a server admin, should either be able to configure a server for you to host your website or at least know of a decent hosting alternative. You probably ran into the cheap smack-talking socially-deficient geek...you know, the guy who would hire a hitman to kill his own mother for about fifty cents and then complain because he found out that a guy in India would do it for a quarter after the fact. If that's who you're talking about as far as an admin goes, I'd recommend taking what he says with a grain of salt and a sense of humor....ideally a twisted sense of humor.

    www.sectorlink.com

    I'm not an affiliate either...this is just the host I'll have used as of 10 years as of this March. They actually know how to provide tech support and answer questions that are of the non-"I can't print" variety.

    Try to avoid the "unlimited"s as much as possible...no resource is unlimited. Every resource is finite, regardless of what a host or the less-informed in the hosting market will tell you. Bandwidth is finite (bandwidth per second x 86,400 x number of days in a month will give you the max bandwidth calculation for that month). Storage space is finite. Email addresses and forwards are finite because they take up storage space. All things are finite...remember that. It'll save you a whole lot of trouble down the road, trust me.

    I have no clue why the KVCH link is not working in the other post but this one seems to be working.

    I've used Hostgator for years and years, and referred over a hundred clients to them, with never any trouble. Like Webzarus said, you get what you pay for with web hosting. Hostgator charges a little over $5 per month for their web hosting. It's cheaper if you go ahead and register 2 or 3 years in advance (in fact, if you do 3 years, it will get it down to around $3.50 per month), AND on top of that, you can Google coupons for Hostgator and find them all day long. Your account will come with plenty of space, bandwidth and cPanel access. I would highly recommend it to anyone needing a small-mid sized website. If it's a massive website, Rackspace is the way to go. But yeah, Hostgator is great. Never had a single problem with them! Good luck! Don't go for "cheapest" though.. You'll be disappointed.

    To OP

    If you pay peanuts, you always get monkeys. So if you want something better you have to more. IMO, if you are happy with the customer service provided by your current hosting provider, then better way stick with them.
