Web Hosts?
« on: December 15, 2008, 12:50:00 PM »

Anyone have any rec's for a good, cheap web host?  I just dumped my old one because they were half retarded and need a cheap but reliable one for a self-promoting website since I work freelance.

if you're an artist and want a site to show off your work try
http://www.art.net/submissions.html
quite reasonable annual fee
for quite reasonable disk space and net access
it's a non-commercial site,
you can't sell work there


or try
http://googlewebhosting.net/
which is free,
unless you use an insame amount of disk space

I use Surpass Hosting and for $10 a month I get much more than I, and Judith, and Forest, need for our current traffic levels.  I picked it because it offered more of everything that I was looking for than other hosts, and seemed more relaxed in what they'd allow on their servers (several places I looked at specifically forbid the use of swear words, so I said fuck that).  It doesn't have the fastest load speed, at least on the shared servers, but that shouldn't be much of an issue unless you have enough traffic that you need a dedicated server.

I'll check out all the suggestions.  I'm probably not going to be setting up the site for another month at least so I've got some time to browse.
