    I would like to purchase a web address for a business that I will be starting and am looking for recommendations on a good hosting service. It will mostly be for email and static information pages and I would like to not spend too much money because I don't need huge bandwidth allowances. What service do you guys know of that I can register through online ?

    Thanks for the help, I hope this is the right forum for this topic.

    Are you talking about domain name registration? If so, I would recommend GoDaddy. The interface on the page isn't too intuitive, but you shouldn't have a problem with it.

    If you want actual webhosting space, I'm currently using (and am happy with) Dathorn Services. I only own a small personal page, so I can't really tell you about stress tests. The owner is helpful, and the forums are quite good. Plus its cheap ($13/month for 2 GB space and like 40 GB transfer).

    i used GoDaddy for my domain registration and i use AlteraHosting as my host. it's $50 a year for 100MB space and 1Gb transfer per month. they onlye charge $1 per extra hundred MBs of space used and $1 per extra Gb of data transfer.

    PS: perhaps community discussion or general discussion would have been better :D
