Cool Is this good? 1.2 Gigs of space, 30 Gig bandwidth a month, for $30.00 a month??

I sure hope so. I'm currently paying $130.00 a month for one domain that has 300 megs of content, and uses around 800 Megs of bandwidth a month.

You're paying $130 a month for 0.8 GB of transfer? That sounds disproportionately expensive.

You have GOT to be kidding me. I'm paying $40 for 35,000 MB of transfer and 400MB of disk space. You need to shop around man.

OOPS!!! I messed up, that's 800 Megs a DAY.

I started with there account one level lower and I was geting charged an extra over $300.00 a month for using too much bandwidth (allowed up to 500 megs a day).

I take it that that other place is MUCH better (URL in first post, has everything I would ever need)!!!!

Thumbs up

To answer your FIRST question, yes that's a good deal.. depending on other factors..

how much for extra bandwidth? does their server support your scripts? What kind of web interface? ftp/telnet/etc? is it a virtual server or do you get your own IP?
How many sites per machine? if they have 10 ppl running 1G a day, they may have a load issue which will cause your sites to lag..

Hmm... $130 for 800 megs transfer a day? Still sounds very expensive. I transfer about 750-1000 megs a day and pay $20 dollars. But I have 150 megabytes of webspace of which I only use 40 with over 300 pages.

The site I host with them uses the number 5 plan found here:
