    Hey,

    If I could offer any of you secure hosting (unlimited everything, with possible free domain and support) for only £1 a month, what would your reactions be? Would you consider purchasing it? If not why?

    Thanks for your help!

    -James

    Haha, its a great offer! I need just over 30 customers to make this work, obviously I'd make a loss at only one customer.

    If I have 30, I can make it happen.

    What speeds can you offer and do you have some kind of hazard redundancy?

    I would say it is a scam or if you use more than 1/200th of the server's resources, they will terminate you.

    Personally, I'm more into the VPS and dedicated server style hosting. A low end VPS is about the same price as a regular shared account but you can do so much more with it.

    That does sound good, but I like to buy straight from the hosting company. Just I find a direct line to them is always better.

    I just paid £120 for 2 years unlimited service with one hosting company. That stung pretty badly but it's a superb service.

    No - not in a million years. It's simply far too good to be true.

    Stung pretty badly? That sounds like a hell of a deal for unlimited service.
