    well, it really depends on what your planning on doing with it, because you might not even need to pay that much if its not going to get used.

    I mean if your expecting a hell of a lot of people to visit your site, then sure, the unlimited bandwidth is a good idea but frankly I do not think that you would require that much band-width.

    And the unlimited space unless you site is going be 300mb+ you don't need the unlimited space.

    If you want to buy a domain name I suggest you think about how much space you will be using and your audience.

    Don't be drawn in by these unlimited offers is just excuse for the site to take more money from you.

    i'm thinking of going with http://www.hostpacket.net for my own hosting. their prices are very good, plus I've been hearing good things about them. Unfortunately, (I think) they've only been open for business for about 3 months...

    I do use them, the server has never gone down, it is nice and quick, the technical support is answered with a day and you get the answer you want. The only problem is that when you are using FTP to upload, if you don't use it for 300 seconds it cuts out for securirty reasons.

    Apart from that, perfect!
