I was wandering if anybody knew of any DECENT web hosting providers that charge a one off fee for web hosting that has alot of SPACE and BANDWIDTH. One that allows me SSL access is what I want too. Do any reliable + trustworthy companies that offer what im looking for exist? Im tired of crap hosts that have poor downtime.
You really got to make sure the host is reliable if you are making a one-off payment. Imagine you paid the money and the host wind up. Monthly payment is still the best way to go, imo, even for proven webhosts.
If you are meaning "one-off payment" as in pay once, and get hosting for life, it's hard to find a solution that offers this that is reliable and will continue to support you. A hosts costs will not suddenly stop, so it is not to their advantage to continue supporting you or even keeping your account online as they are no longer receiving any income from your account, which poses a problem.
I have seen several hosts that have offered these one-time payments (but not all) and they completely left and left all of their customers without their data and their money lost. Add this along with high bandwidth and space requirements, it looks like you are looking for quite a mess (although it may not always necessarily be the case)!
I do apologize if I misinterpreted what you meant by "one-off payment" and good luck searching for a host that fits your needs
