  • Where should i host my board? I know someone who does it at $30/yr

    I have just got a new Vb board and it is going to have a resonable amount of site traffic. So i will need good uptime and transfer rate. However i don't have a large budget after just buying this board.

    I have found a web host who do the below package for just $29 per year does anybody know of a better deal?
    Does anybody know anything about them they are at http://www.hosttoday.co.uk

    PHP4 Scripting
    mySQL Database
    20 Autoresponders
    20 POP3 Mailboxes
    Server Side Includes
    Unlimited FTP Access
    50MB UNIX Disk Space
    Customised Error Page
    Commercial Web Space
    Web Based Control Panel
    Search Engine Submission*
    Real-time Web Site Statistics
    1000MB Monthly Data Transfer
    Password Protected Directorys

    1 gig of transfer is really lousy. If your site is busy, you'll exceed that in no time.

      50 POP3 Mailboxes
      Server Side Includes

            Sparta,

            The above plan that i mention is similar to what you will get for 12.50 pounds.

            I did a ping & tracert & i must says it is THE BEST I have seen from Singapore to a overseas host. 8 hops & PING about 230ms. It seems that they are off donhost.co.uk. Have you heard of them? It seems that you are in UK as well.

              Yeah i have heard of them they are quite a big hosting company in the UK. If they resell or not it is still a good package but maybe not as good as that one you showed me however most people are reselling of someone in the end.

              It is the way of things.
