Personally, I'm looking at the low end deals running at about £20 - they do exist, and my needs are modest. I dont expect substantial support for that, because if its a reseller they're more of a marketeer than a technical resource. Most of the time i can do stuff on my own, although such a service DOES need to be based on a reliable server with all the basic features and php permissions enabled - so i wont need to contact the host, requesting support they may not be able to deliver because they're not actually the administrator. Which is a situation open to abuse, because no one is really accountable.
A budget reseller account can potentially go badly wrong, because the host doesn't actually have much control over the server. So if it does go wrong.....you the user is in big trouble.
Which is why recommendations and personal anecdotes are good. If you've been using a host for 3/6 months, you can give a good appraisal of them.
Originally posted by ldcdc That space/bandwitdh ratio is very strange. Can you confirm that is what you want? Maybe you meant to say 50GB of bandwidth?
Yea i just though thats was a typo unless you want to use it for a online personal storage space or something.
Also i forgot to add do you want the server in the UK or US if your looking for a UK server thats going to be hard to find and if you did i would doubt the quality.
