    need help picking a host

    Hi everyone,

    I was hoping I could get some help with picking a webhost .. it seems like there's so many options out there. Just a few recommendations would be nice.

    I'm a graphic design student and I need a place for my portfolio, which will take up a considerable amount of space. I also need a place for my personal website & journal, so I will need subdomains. There's a list of my requirements below, and I'm trying to find a good price. I realize that sometimes cheaper isn't always better, but I'm somewhat of a bargain shopper.


    200-300 MB
    20-30 GB of BW
    Up to 5 subdomains & email
    MySQL
    (I prefer CPanel)

    Hello and welcome on WHT!

    Have you browsed yet the Offers SubForum?

    Then pick a bunch of hosting companies, and ask questions, both here and to their sales dept.

    Good Luck!

    Have you tryed the search button here on WHT forums? For that much of bandwidth monthly i would suggest a reseller account, but then the price will jump.

    if you are building up a portfolio then i suggest you put "add-on domains" to your requirements too.

    If you are considering having multiple domains I would suggest going with Dathorn's Internet Services and getting their $13/month plan. I've been with them for almost two years now and have less problems with them than any other host I've tried.

    I'd also recommend you doing a search on Dathorn and any other companies you consider using WHT search function.

    Hi girlintheworld, welcome to WHT!
    Your needs are rather modest, and there sholuld be no problem finding a host meeting them. But you should be careful to avoid the bad apples - there are plenty of those in this over-saturated market where hosts try to cut costs by outsourcing support to India etc....

    I always advice people to look around themselves for hosts with good customer reputation, you can even search here on WHT as a start. I don't think you need to spend more than $7-10 per month.
    Good Luck!
