http://www.smartyhost.com.au have a package in their bargain basement section. It is $80 for the following service. I am in australia though as will be most of my clients. I believe these guys just resell american hosting so would they still suffice for my needs ?
I was with them a while ago and had no problems asa far as reliability, but would you recoomend paying a little more for australian based hosting. Would the couple of milliseconds load time make a noticable difference. Please offer your opinions.
Here's what they offer for $80AU a year.
50MB MB Disk Storage Space
Bandwidth - Data Transfer:
20 GB (20,000MB) Bandwidth Allowed Per Month
50 E-mail Accounts
POP3 + Imap Server
Mailing List Server
It is for a business. I am setting up an eccomerce site on the php/mysql platform. Do you think the client should look at a higher quality australian based host, and pay a little more for the speed and bandwidth?
