How cheap can I get a domain name hosted for? I'm not talking about a redirection service or anything, but just cheap domain hosting, the bare minimums.

WestHost [westhost.com] provides very high quality hosting, 25 Megs for $8.95 per month. I've been there nearly two years and I'm very pleased with both the service and price.

Dave, does WebHost have unlimited bandwidth? That's not usually a concern for new sites, but some of us have sites or clients that are looking to move and hosting is always being batted about in here.

KL, you're welcome, and welcome to WmW.

rcjordan. . . about netmar, have you ever used it? I am looking into getting a really small domain, 1-2mb is all i will need. But the last time I tried that, I had a huge framed in add, along with the fact that my site did not support meta tags, what a joke that was. But it did not cost me much so it was juts a learning experience.

netmar seems to have really low prices, and I am interested in getting a new domain name, which will only cost me 5-10 dollars a month depending on which package i get. are there any drawbacks, or restrictions? Thanks a bunch.

>netmar

I lease my dedicated server from them -have been for nearly 5 years now. They are located about 4 hours from me, and though we've become good acquaintances over the years, my only involvement with them is to send the check every month and to occassionally go buy them a steak dinner (a practice I heartily recommend to anyone leasing a dedicated server -NOTHING greases the skids better than steak fat, butter & sour cream). These guys are geeks of the first order, and the place is geared practically to 100% automation, there is no 'customer service desk' as far as I know.

BUT, if you're content to thrash around a bit at first and get stuff going with very little hand-holding, then I can't think of a better host.

Dave, I am looking at WebHost, and it seems pretty good. The only question I have is do they allow you to create new domain names through them, or do they only let you transfer?

Also, are there any restrictions or anything like that when using webhost? thank you.

I have made my decision, and have ordered a 25mb domain from WestHost. Seems like a really good service, and thank you to everyone for your help. I will keep everyone up to date with how the service is, and how my site runs for anyone who is interested, thanks again to everyone!

RCJ - No bandwidth limits. It wasn't something I looked at when I signed up initially, inexperience. But my second domain is there in part because of it.

klaw07 - either way on domains, register new or bring your own. As to restrictions, read the Terms of Service, my memory isn't that good. Not sure about "mature" content, no spam and no warez are about all I remember, sorry.

Bandwidth limit on westhost is 6gig a month. (I didn't know there was one until I went over it...)

This site is on westhost...I mark them this way:
support: 7
uptime: 9.8
box quality: 8
features: 10
price: 10
bandwidth: 9
speed: 2-9 (depends on which box you get, there are some killer boxes and some dogs. this one is a 7-7.5)

Well, I ordered my first real domain yesterday, through WestHost, and am already able to upload, etc. Although I have to use mydomain.com.westhost.net. But supposedly I will be able to upload to mydomain.com within 24 hours, seems like a really great service.

RCJ - I stand corrected, Brett's right as to unlimited bandwidth. Here's the policy:

"WestHost's customers are privileged to be offered unlimited traffic. Unlimited traffic applies to standard web documents (JPEG, GIF and HTML). All other types of files such as (ZIP, MP3, etc.) are subject to 3 GIG of transfer per month. Sites containing paid advertisements, such as banner ads are allowed 6 GIG of transfer per month. Any customer who exceeds this limit will be notified by WestHost to resolve the situation. Extra bandwidth is $10 per GIG."

I rate support at a 8.5-9 but my needs are far more simple then Brett's I suspect.
