Since yesterday am searching a cheap hosting (around 50/yr). I was with Datapacket (yep, I know, bad choice) but all I need is space/moderate Data Transfer/ASP/Database for my personal website, so no need of a "reliable" profesional webhosting. And USA cheap hosting is still expensive in Canadian money.
Anyway, after more then 12 hours searching I can say that finding a cheap ASP hosting is not easy at all!
oh, there is plenty of PHP tho.
But why is it so complicated to find ASP hosting? Is ASP going down in popularity or what?
12 hours of searching and 120 seconds of Quote request are same in getting options. Of course, these are all vendors hawking you their wares...but you can't say you didn't have options once you do a HostQuote http://www.webhostingtalk.com/request.php
But generally, ASP hosting a.k.a. Windows hosting is not as cheap on the penny as Linux is.
To expect $50/year is very inexpensive. The microsoft licensing alone probably cost the company more than that. Even though its for personal use, you may end up needing to increase the amount you are willing to spend.
I understand you and your 12 hours of searching, I was exactly the same as you, it's very hard to find a good asp hosting for your needs compare to php..... After all searching I found a good asp hosting company with a reasonable price, currently I'm with them, tell me your requirements : space & bandwidth per month ?
