    Actually their hosting plans are very inexpensive once you take into account the costs of being in business.

    mediumcube.com are in business since 2001 and they provide economical prices.

    Prices are expensive because; Professional package ($7,95/mo) is acceptable for me but it doesn't include Sql Server and they don't sell it as an addon. They told me that if I want to use Sql Server, I had to purchase Developer package and it's $17,95/mo. I can't pay $10/mo more for using Sql Server (yes Developer package has more things but I don't need them).

    Note: I can pay up to $150/year.

    You can consider hostingfest.com at this point, i got a shared plan from them.

    regards

    Thanks atayyash but I didn't like their webpage I found serverdivision on a search. I think its prices and features are really good.

    serverdivision.com/shared.php

    I can start with LITE plan and expand the package when I need. But I dont understand, this shared hosting looks like a reseller plan. What's the difference between them? Only seperated control panels?

    And can you see any possible hidden charge or deficient feature on this plan?


    Thanks

    HostingFest.com or MediumCube.com are your choices currently for the specifications you gave.

    Hosting info pages of HostingFest.com are under construction. And about MediumCube: what does monthly $119.95 mean? Are these men crazy? I can buy the same serice at $19.95/mo from another company...

    have a look at liquidsix.com and axwebhost.com

    They are expensive for me...

    Now I've found dotnetmart.com. I read good things about these guys. Standart plan seems good for me. But I can't decide, should I buy shared or reseller plan?

    http://www.dotnetmart.com/Reseller.aspx

    http://www.dotnetmart.com/Shared.aspx

    Standart plans have nearly same prices but why reseller plan is less expensive when it has more features than shared plan? What's the difference?

    Correct, Resellers should pay that amount of money because they will have customers and they need stability.

    About HostingFest.com i can see contact page, why you not contact them?

    Yes they need stability but they need money too There are better companies with better reseller plans and their prices are 1/10 of them.. Would you really pay $1440/year ???? Do they sell their company?

    My Picks

    Don't approach MediumCube.com. The owner of this site accquired server division few days back and he resold it to another company. They don't have the capacity to do business professionally and with dedication.

    I would highly recommend ASPNIX - http://www.aspnix.com without any doubt.

    They provide ASP.NET 2.0 and SQL Server 2005 hosting. Their support is 100% perfect till today.

    they are good

    I don't have any idea about dotnetmart but I've used ASPNIX services. Roma @ ASPNIX is a great person with dedication and professionalism.

    All I can say is just purchase their plan for 1 month and try out. You will surely post a positive review here. After all they will give 30 days money back gurantee. So if you are not interested/satisfied you can simply request a refund from them.

    atayyash, I searched two of these hosting on forum and web but I really couldn't find enough info. There are only some good but short reviews. I'm fed up searching hosting company

    I'll search the company quality on my own, but can you help me for their futures? If we compare them, which one is better (futures / price) ?

    Go with HostingFest.com - they guys who handled the day to day at Server Division when it was a reliable hosting company formed HostingFest.

    ServerDivision has been bought and sold twice in the last month. I had no faith in them because the servers and services were up and down so I left.

    I know have my customer sites at Infuseweb.com and all my company sites are at HostingFest.com

    If HostingFest is as good as Server Division WAS - then it should be great. And Infuseweb is a great company with excellent service.

    I understand. But I think Infuseweb is worth the money. Tony runs a great ship.

    As far as HostingFest.com - the site isn't complete. They are just getting started and right now they are getting everything setup and ready to launch. They aren't officially launched yet, but my understanding is they will be next week.

    I just signed up with them today, so I can't say yay or nay about the service, but if they can recapture what they had at Server Division before the sale - then it should be great service.

    You might get better pricing if you contact them now before they finish the site. I can say their prices are very affordable. You will be happy with their pricing.

    Now I'm a customer of AspNix. I hope that it's the best choice for me. I'll write my reviews when I have enough experience with them.


    Thanks all for your helps.

    Yes, i found the contact page and contacted them, they respond within about 10 min with their packages. Can you help me guys to choose Shared Windows Hosting? I think I'll have a deal with hostingfest.

    I wouldn't go with any of the companies stated including this new hostingfest.com

    Any company that provides Windows hosting for budget prices should really consider the legality of licenses as it is plainly obvious this industry has become a load of pirates and cheats!

    How on God's earth can a hosting company afford:

    a) hundreds of COMMERCIAL licenses
    b) server costs
    c) earn enough money to make a living and grow a business through structured business plans

    When they are charging you $10 per month!!!!!!???!!!!! I read that some of you guys complain that $XX is too expensive so I'll go with company A, but there is a reason why company B charges more. If you cannot afford to pay a little extra for quality and legality, then you are in the wrong business.

    From the reviews that I've read and from friends that develop websites, the best valued host is DiscountASP.NET

    Also I would be answering these questions to see if the business is setup legally:

    1) is it registered? can you verify?
    2) are the licenses legal?

    It is very easy for 1 man bedroom outfits to disappear and hide behind a non-registered and illegal business operation because when something goes wrong, you cannot find them or be compensated for loss of business.

    Stable servers
    Experienced stuff
    Live support (online chat)
    A real company (with address and phone)
    cheap prices = unstable servers
    to earn any money from the business, the company needs to pack in so many customers that it becomes unstable.

    Don't be fooled by claims of experienced staff, anyone can claim they are microsoft certified etc....

    A real company not only has an address and phone number, but is legally responsible through law. Stay away from dodgy backyard businesses!

    There is a NEGATIVE CORRELATION with price and stability.

    Hi

    Hey Localhost,

    This is what happened to serverdivision. They purchased lot of servers from planet and they offered dirt cheap hosting. The company has been sold to 2 companies within 30 days. They are unable to pay huge cost every month to Planet.

    Serverdivision had a good name and fame 2 months back but now not. They have around 5000 clients and many of them are desperately looking for new providers.

    Discountasp.net is a good host. I'm not their customer but have heard a lot about them. They only provide shared hosting. Will they provide reseller hosting??

    Yes you are right localhost
    This specially true if your business is run by someone named "Milan Maras" of serverdivision.com fame.

    Hello,

    A few word about HostingFest,

    (1) It is run by the Tech Team that made ServerDivision worth talking about on WHT.

    (2) They Server - I can vouch for AAA+, faster than the best of ServerDivision

    (3) ServerDivision support - mediumcube or new owners - Just maybe if you a shared hosting customer with a small website.

    We shifted 41 domain to HostingFest within 12 hours, and it was the smoothest ride possible. Our domain are not the brick & mortar pictures & static pages with maybe a forum or database - we Transferred over 15 DNN websites, 5 Shopping carts and 3 custom back-office setups.

    Remember, in this business what counts is reliability - what I see at HostingFest make me very happy!.

    Cool

    Hello,

    I'm with hostingfest.com now, i purchased one of their shared hosting packages. To tell the truth, they are great and responding to my tickets fast. I'll update my experience with them here when i have new event. Untill now they are excellent. I hope them to stay like that 4 ever.

    127.0.0.1, I'm sorry you feel that way. And I'm not sure what inexpensive Windows hosting has to do with legality of licenses or stability. Take iPowerWeb, for example, who host inexpensive hosting plans. Yet they have thousands of customers and are fully legit. How do they do it?

    The same applies to Infuseweb. We might not be huge, but we CAN and DO afford to host sites for inexpensive prices, and by the way, are making money. So please take Infuseweb out of your group of "fly by night" hosts. It's incredibly hard work for us, but it's amazing what you can do when you actually care about your customers and enjoy doing what you do.

    BTW, not sure if you're aware of it, but there's such a thing as the SPLA agreement, which allows hosts to rent MS licenses for reasonable prices Actually, it's the ONLY way you're supposed to host with MS products. So THAT is how we can afford to do what we do, and do it legally.

    And I think you may be failing to realize that hosting is not ALL a business may be offering. Dedicated services, reseller services, software sales, etc, ALL make up whether a company can afford to do what it does.
