    need hosting - sure you hear this all the time

    i've been checking out a lot of low-cost hosts lately, but it wasn't till i came to these forums that i saw a lot of them are b.s. what site would you all suggest for:

    50mb space
    ftp access (and shell would be awesome)
    php support
    under $70 a year

    the cheaper the better, as this is gonna be a lame videogame site run by me and my friends. i'm definately gonna check out dot5hosting and terra-byte. i was wondering though, has anyone heard of alumanetworks?

    Try the hosting requests forum - that way hosts can respond to your request.

    It looks like he's looking for suggestions. Of which, there are several good hosts around.

    Do you know what you would need in bandwidth for your site?

    And, sorry, I haven't heard of alumanetworks.
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    well, our last site got about 400 hits a day. like i said, mostly a hobby site that pulled in random people from yahoo. so i'm thinking the average page being 5k (of course, not including videogame screenshots).

    5k * 400 * 30 = 60mb

    the whole unkown aspect of bandwidth to me kind of freaks me out, but i'm sure it's not much to worry about. i just wouldn't want to get screwed on hidden costs for exceding the banwidth.
