If paid annually: $9.95/mo, Free Setup, Total $95.40

2000 MB storage, 120 GB bandwidth monthly

Huge amount of storage space and monthly bandwidth, but they don't use cpanel (they made their own control panel, which may be good, but it does not include Fantastico.  They had few installed scripts, so you would have to install your own.  Not for a novice.


High bandwidth, lots of storage space and good features, but max is 5 gig/day, good if you never exceed 5gig in any one day.


$7.77/month, 150 GB monthly bandwidth (up to % GB every day), 1000 MB storage, support forum, web stats

High reliability, but very pricey


sitecontrol login.  Also expensive.

Dirt Cheap - If that is your main criteria, for a small, simple web site
Only choose this one if cheap is your only criteria.  I don't use them any more, myself. They were too unreliable, too much down time.

Web site tools Excellent and inexpensive search engine promotion and other tools
GoDaddy Great for domain name registrations - cheap and they do a good job! Domain registrar - pyo   Domain registrar PYOuk   Domain registrar - more expensive than GoDaddy, but also good. Payment engines - shopping carts  PHP scripts  Free Site monitoring tools Scripts
