    new here, dont need much for hosting.

    hi, new here..so Im not sure where all to look...

    I dont need much.. nothing I require is demanding what so ever... I 'do' however want reliability.

    my last was dirt cheap and supe reasy to use (control panel, simple simon to do anything) but for the price of buck somethign a month..thats what I get.

    So maybe you guys can offfer some companies that dont go up and down all the time.. (stable email, http & ftp)

    personal site / web developer

    Space: not more than 300MB I would think
    Bandwidth: 5-10 GB maybe certainly not more..(not reallysure wat i ever used before..but that was at 5 GB I believe)
    Mail accounts: (unlimited or a lot)
    PHP
    mySQL


    regular freebie stuff.. sub domains, parking possible/add-ons..etc..etc

    anyone got any pointers?

    thanks.

    Most companies will be able to handle your requirements. My only recommendation if you want reliability, is to look for a host who has been around a few years. Also if the deal sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

    My advice is pay yearly only if you are sure the host won't close shop or at least refund you the balance.

    Your requirements are more then normal, many of the hosting companies would accommodate your site easily, you just need to test the hosting company a bit with questions that are of your interest.

    It could help much more the other WHT members to recommend you a host maybe if you could tell us a price-range.

    With a 3 to 4 dollar a month range that you are looking at you shouldn't have a problem finding a decent host that doesn't oversell. Take a look at the offers section.

    No, I hand drew it myself and colored in Photoshop.

    ASmallOrange.com's Small plan ($5/month) is suitable for your needs. They are a very reliable hosting provider and has excellent support.
