    I'm a film editor, and I've been working with one client, but I'm thinking of expanding into a business. What I've been doing is making online videos of bands for their websites. I've been working through mac.com so far, but I think it might be time for a fully-featured website with my own domain.

    My sister uses Powweb.com, which is $90 a year, but I was wondering if there might be a better deal out there. I don't need 20GB of server space like what Powweb is giving my sister (which she's used less than a megabyte.) Do you know of a good deal? Could my sister and I share the server she has, but have our own separate domains? (i.e. she would have her firstnamelastname.com and I would have my firstnamelastname.com but use her server.)

    What are my options?

    Thanks!

    Yes, you can share server space with Powweb (my hosting company, too). She needs to set up a new FTP login for you and input your domain information into her settings. Then you can upload your site(s) without interfering with each other's sites. Powweb allows for unlimited domains, so it will be your best bet.

    An even cheaper and better option is Surpass Hosting they offer 200GB storage/2TB Bandwidth for $6 a month/$60 a year. Check it out. I've got 2 dedicated servers with them and I've found their service to be priceless.

    That Surpass Hosting can't be for real. 2TB of bandwidth per month costs more than $6. They must be sharing that 2TB between all their users, same with the disk space...

    I use www.k1z.com and find them to be very good, no problems with them at all.
