Hey all,

The package I got is from 123ezhost. You can click here to see the details. They aren't offering this package anymore, but I contacted the salesperson.

He said the following: you can get the same package as I got (see the link above) and for the same price etc. Just mention the words "quincy beeker" and you'll get it for that price. Their email address is: [email protected].


Greetz,

Spietreser.

PS. You'd have to mention you want the "1000MB ebay package" too because I saw that they now only sell 500MB packages now.

The reason it's so cheap is that nobody will EVER get anywhere near either the space or bandwidth allowances. Buried deep in their terms and conditions is this little gem:-

"Due to the unique resource characteristics and traffic patterns associated with certain types of sites, the following are limited to your allowance of free traffic/bandwidth per month:
- Sub hosting - any domain housing additional users
- Shareware, sound, video, image and multimedia archives
- Mirror sites · Distribution points
- Any site whose primary purpose is file distribution
- All sites with files other than plain text webpages
Sites that go over the allowed free traffic will be charged $5 per gig. Sites must pre-pay this fee, and site is subject to suspension if bandwidth is unpaid for."

Note that in the list it says "All sites with files other than plain text webpages" - in other words, if your page has graphics, you'll be paying $5 per gig of transfer to host it there!!

With hosting services, even more than most other services, it REALLY pays to read the fine print carefully.

NOTE: I am not associated with the company in question, nor have I used their service - I am merely posting the above as an advisory based on their stated terms on their website.

Good point Genki!

Although when I asked they said I could host my own mp3's (of my band). You can't host illegal files though, true. :(

Moral of the story, you pay for what you get. Life is not a free ride. Everyone needs to earn a living.

Which is why I have always stuck to innerhost.com over these 4 years. Price may be crappy to some, but boy, do they have great skilled support.

You should try the Microsoft Sharepoint hosting. Wowze
