Alrighty, I've been looking at a few hosts, but I'd like to get some input (hopefully from people who've actually used them) because it's pretty hard to tell what your actually getting sometimes. I'm a Computer Science major and currently taking my first web class , Intro to HTML. I started learning HTML online this summer and pretty much had the basics down. I've read through the book already to get the CSS part so now I just need to practice. Basically I want something to host a simple site, but be able to expand if I decide web dev is for me. Although I likely don't need a lot of storage or bandwidth, I would like to be able to throw up pictures/video/other random files to have them accessible. A few I've considered: aplus.net The personal plan is good, 40gb transfer but only 500mb storage. The business sounds too good to be true. 170gb storage and 2tb transfer for $10 a month. I imagine it's mostly marketing since they're shared servers and it's unlikely that those amounts would be used anyway. Webhostgiant.com 25gb/1tb for $2.79/mo. I haven't heard much about them so I don't know if the low price is worth it. Site5.com Running and unlimited disk/bandwidth promo. asmallorange.com Apparently is popular here. Bandwidth is good, low storage. dreamhost.com Currently unlimited space/bandwidth as long as you have your account. The normal amounts are pretty high and supposedly increase by the week. Not sure how that works. $11/mo. Seems like a good deal if legit. A few other important things are Free setup and I'd like to pay by the month, at least for now. I'm not sure that I would ever use more than the 400mb on smallorange, but like I said I'd like to be able to dump a bunch of files on it if needed. I guess I want the best bang/buck, just not necessarily the cheapest. I don't want to be sorry in the end. Sorry for such a winded post.
