It was hard enough for me to find a low-cost host for my low-budget website(I highly don't recommend http://www.hosthem.com(aks
hosthem.net) They are frauds, they take your money and sleep on it!
Hostyard.com however is exactly the opposite my site was setup within a couple of hours and they have almost everything i needed(telnet access wasn't available, but paying $30/year for what they give you......i felt it was worth giving up).
Also, thanks to this forum I learned almost everything there is to getting started with a new domain! It would have been impossible to do what I'm doing without this forum.
