    Put this...

    IP Address : Not Required.
    Phone : n/a
    Address : n/a

    Make sure you give your email correct or noone will be able to reach you with quotes.

    The check thing depends upon who you choose for your hosting...most hosts have it as an option, some don't.

    Put in your request, wait sometime, get the quotes, evaluate them, choose a host...and then ask your chosen host whether they accept checks/money orders.

    good cheap host is an oxymoron like good vs. cheap host
    look out for what you ask for because the cheap host more times than not is the opposite of good.

    what is your monthly hosting budget?
    what are you looking to have hosted?

    Cafe Manager: Free lunch? Did you read the fine print stating it was an April Fool's joke.
    Patron: I read the same way I listen, I ignore the parts I don't agree with. I'm suing you for false advertising.

    I don't know but that site looks familiar, howver, it looks familiar on another host site. Looks like a common template, hopefully its not a rip.

    Their domain is fairly new
    Domain Name: EXTRASERVERS.COM
    Updated Date: 09-feb-2004
    Creation Date: 23-jan-2004
    Expiration Date: 23-jan-2005

    They are charging $1 per gig per month to host which is a bit cheap. And the $100 lifetime plan looks scary. This company could be here today and gone tomorrow.
    Ask them how many sites the jam on a server.

    It's a little more than $4 but I would recommend RippleHost.com which is run by the reputable SplashHost.com
    What's your budget?

    Seriously, what's your budget?

    Where did you find this host?

    I would suggest before you go out hunting for a webhost, atleast identify clearly you requirements - space, bandwidth, features, budget etc. This will make your search a lot easier

    It's a good deal. Yes, of couse these are the main criteria of choosing a web host. Also I advice you to look for the web hosting provider that offers money back quarantee or free trial period for you to appreciate quality of their services.

    Whether webhosting or car sales, claims made by the seller are only significant if true. *

    So if you can't or won't research a claim, ignore it in your decision process.

    *Well, if you can prove it false, that's pretty significant.

    You'll get fewer complaints from over performing than from over promising.

    Once again, the phrase "You get what you pay for" comes to mind. For less than $4/mo, don't expect much support.

    On a side note, hosts are not permitted to self-advertise.

    ^^ What he said. ^^
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.
