    Affordable host?

    I hope to hae my site, coorperate with my friends. All we need is enough space and enough bandwidth, although we are still going to have a new site, but we are planning for the future, we all have slow broadband, hard to move database from host to host.

    All we need is :
    at least 20000MB space
    at least 500000MB bandwidth
    at least 100 MySQL Database, with no database size limit
    php safemode off, please don't on, cause we will have a lot of limitation
    with Zend and Ioncube encode support
    support imagemagic and stuff like that
    cPanel or VHCS control panel
    support multiple sites and domains
    can upload compressed files then extract it via control panel*
    with the max price of $6.95 per month, include 1 domain. Hope it is $4.95 per month

    The List below, is what I found, is it good?

    I understand that it may be expensive for you for the currency exchange, however, your budget is way too low for what you're asking.
    I suggest you to rise your budget or lower your needs.

    Even with the above, you will need to pay $10.

    Honestly your budget is too low for your requirements. If you want to find a reliable host, you will have to pay more. But I doubt you will have any problems finding a few overselling web hosting companies, however you might need to commit for a year or two to get that $6 per month price.

    monky91, ask them to provide you with a phpinfo-file, they should be able to help you. As others have posted most of the overselling companies don't want you around if you start using all the resources you have "paid" for.

    As others have said in this forum, no host will want you. Your budget is extremely low and that price will eat up most of the hosting companies resources, with you only paying 5% of what it costs to service you.

    Up your budget by about $50 a month and you might get some host to take you. Make sure you keep backups and are ready to move though when/if said host goes belly up.

    If you are intending to launch some business venture and reasonably expect at some point in the next 12 months to make money, then as others have said you should simply increase your budget so that you can invest properly in your business and give it the best chance of success.

    Without going so far as to make yourself ill, first of all be prepared to lower your own standard of living so that you can afford to lend money to your business to give it seed capital. If necessary sell personal items on eBay or elsewhere to raise money, and if this isn't enough then beg or borrow money off friends and family or seek a loan. Anyone serious about a business venture must be prepared to do whatever is necessary to legally fund their business properly and invest in adequate infrastructure and whatever software tools are required to get it started and give it the best chance of success.

    If you do not need the spec that you quoted initially, what you could do, and actually you should do this anyway, is produce a plan for how you expect your needs to scale over time. It may be that the cheapest host that you can find will do for starters to get you a presence. Build into your business strategy the intention to move host in advance of the time where you expect the needs to be outgrown. Depending on when you calculate that you will need to move, it may be that getting locked into a year long contract works out cheapest and so don't be afraid of that. You won't break the contract, but will still plan to move host before the end of the contract to a more capable host and then simply factor the remaining expense of the host that you have left into the initial cost of your new host.

    Good luck!

    A few tips that I can give you are:

    1. Don't be influenced by the high allocations that you see offered by the budget hosts these days. The CPU time/power they're willing to give you is not increasing anywhere near proportionately, if at all.

    2. Read the Terms of Service carefully. You'll find various limitations there that really define what you're being offered. Disk space usage limitations for example are becoming more and more common.

    but we are planning for the future, we all have slow broadband, hard to move database from host to host.
    3. Planning for the future should include a way for you to maintain a recent backup of your data. Hosts do not assume responsibility for your data not being available. If internet connections in your area are very slow, you might want to consider buying backup space. There are providers that specialise in that.

    4. You most likely need to find a way for the site to pay for its own hosting, since it looks like your own resources are very limited. Selling some ad space is a common solution.

    5. Think big, but start small.

    i think its funny

    most companies are in battle to offer the most storage and bandwidth. Most sites will never even get close to useing it all but it seems to be such a deciding factor.
