    Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?

    I've been looking around the net, and I see all of these packages with UNLIMITED BANDWIDTH, TEN BILLION EMAIL ACCOUNTS, FREE E-COMMERCE etc etc etc.

    What if I just want, say, 3 email accounts, and 1 gig of bandwidth a month? Nothing big, nothing small, but something in the middle where I have all of these email accounts sitting around for no reason?

    I'm looking to spend maybe 12 bucks a month or something.

    Any ideas?

    I've got hosting with www.2mhost.com. It's way cheap, and I've never had downtime problems. I currently have three email accounts running, and they allow for 10gb transfer, so long as you aren't hosting movies or music (or at least, that's what the stipulation used to be). :)

    Would $25 a year do you? Even the next package up is $5 a month, and it's more than enough. I host 3 sites on the "Tiny ($25/year) package". Excellent customer service too, and good uptime.

    Well, it may not have email, but nearlyfreespeech.net works fine for me.

    I use Pair. They are very professional and reliable. They are not cheap but they deliver everything they promise. They do seem to expect a rather high level of knowledge than the average newbie might possess though.

    Go to http://theislanddog.com

    Click the Dreamhost banner and enter 777 into the code box. You should get one year of service for one year of service for about $9.

    Make sure you read the user reviews before you sing up with a webhost. Search in google for webhosting forum .. ask your question over there .. you will get detail information wbout the web host you want to singup. :)

    I just got a referral to b•one Webhosting today, and their prices are good and services and functions look impeccable.

    Anyone have any experience with them? I'm tempted to move my domain over... :)
