Don't use HostIndex or HostSearch. They rate and list hosts by how much they are paid from them. Not very unbiased.

Check out http://www.HostFacts.com/ for an unbiased approach.

The most reliable and feature packed (they don't even list all of their features on their page though) is http://www.dids.com/

They are small, new, and in the process of redesigning.



I am not affiliated with any of the site mentioned

I ran across www.rnwebdesign.com recently.

Just click on hosting at the site....I think it has 10 mb for 2.95 a month, no setup fee if you pay a year in advance. (34.95)

If you want to go monthly, there will be a $20.00 setup fee.

(no i don't work for them, i just noticed it was cheap http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

I found Discount Domain Registry. Their URL is http://www.discountdomainregistry.com/

They may be too good to be true, but offer free 20MB (including FTP, CGI and PHP) when you register or transfer your domain with them (it costs standard $15/year). With that prices, I may start a bussines of reselling web space! It is $0.75/month!

Any experiences with their service?

I signed up a site with HostMatters and I am very pleased with their service. The support is excellent, and the control panel makes things really easy. Their URL is http://www.hostmatters.com.

Good Luck!
