    What a joke - BetterServ.com

    Their website design is horrible, prices are VERY expensive, and it seems they charge $200/GB bandwidth ( http://www.betterserv.com/4BetterSer...Plans/Text.htm ). That must be some top quality bandwidth (probably a GigE connection for every 2 servers )

    100 MB of hard disk space with 50 MB of bandwith? That means by the time you check every file on your web site (assuming it has reached its capacity of 100 MB) you will have exceeded your bandwith limit by 50 MB! Yikes...

    Not the way to attract too many customers.

    In their hosting grid, they state they design web sites, yet just below the table, they state they do not. Must be something I'm missing. Anyways, I doubt I would want to get my site designed from them.

    Most of our hosted websites use less than 50 MB of Transfer.
    o_O That doesn't seem right... do you guys think it could be a typo and they meant 50 GB?

    There is an island of opportunity in the middle of every difficulty. Miss the island, though, and you're pretty much doomed.

    To tell the truth, a rather simple html site won't come near 50 MB of transfer unless it gets a lot of page views. However, a semi-popular forum would reach that total in about 10 or so days.
