I have an idea for a small web-based business I'd like to develop. I'm a flash designer, not a server guy, so I need a company that offers ease-of-use, good support, and importantly, INEXPENSIVE.
I don't wanna get ripped off. Any suggestions?
purplenames are good:
100mb space, cgi, fast, reliable, v good and helpfull service
£18 for .co.uk for 2 years!
about £30 for a .com or .net
I've been with them for a few months and I'm very pleased with the service
In the USA?
Any spots in the united states? I don't think anyone wants to deal with an overseas company.
Domains for $20. Tons of space, super-fast download times, and the guy who owns it was a designer, so they can cater to this side of the biz.
I've been with Arena1 for 2 years, and since they have a hot-wire backup, they're NEVER down. And my accout only costs me $15 a month. Can't beat it.
If you're just fooling around, you could go to geocities, but if you're making a BUSINESS, go with this company. They know what they're doing.
here is one...
I have a couple of sites with hostsave.com
- $6.95 a month (billed every three months)
- 30 meg
- 5 email address
- now $20 a year for domain names...
service is quite good as well - if you sign up, make sure they know I sent you with the address in my signature
I use that too!
Hey, I use arena1.com too, and those guys are great (I wish Microsoft had that kind of people). Check this out.
In da' house!

But what services do they offer? Pricing plans? Stuff like that.

I have 2 sites hosted at arena one as well. They're very good.

Don't use Pair web hosting
I've had a Pair.com account for 3 months now and the service has been very bad. I've had problems with my email account and the site is really slow in the evenings.
I reckon this might have been moved from another forum.
this is the definitive hosting thread. check here and post.
