    Looking for reliable provider- on a budget.

    Hello everyone,
    I've been looking for a decent provider so I can setup a blog initially and then maybe grab a domain at a later point. I am currently on a budget of $2. (yes, lol)

    I know $2 for a host is asking a lot, but that is the budget, unfortunately.

    Any suggestions as far as providers go? Or, any providers willing to provide a small bit of space and features that I could eventually upgrade when/if the site gathers traffic? It would be greatly appreciate.

    Thank you all in advance.

    There are quite a few hosts offering $2/month hosting packages - try checking out the shared hosting offers board

    You may be able to get hosting from a reputable provider for $2/month but don't expect a lot of storage/space/features.

    They won't list the packages on their site but if you contact sales they may be able to set something up for you. Beware the chances are that if you go for $2/month hosting you'll have to pay a year up front in most cases due to transaction fees.

    There aren't too many which offer it for $2/month, you might be able to get it if you pay on a higher payment term.

    If you raise your budget to $4 though, you'll have a greater chance.

    Many reputable web hosts now offer "budget web hosting" packages for about $2/month.

    Thumbs up

    I was mainly just looking to put up just random material. I ended up going with Clan Drive. I was given a coupon off the first month, so I have a few pennies left.

    Thank you all so much for your replies.

    Glad you found someone. You may want to up the budget in the future though. Even at $5, you could skip lunch one day a month and manage $5. If you're a big guy like me, $5 is a snack.

    They're needs aren't high to start off with, just a Wordpress blog which are quite efficient.

    Yep, hence why I said in the future. Like when things start picking up/growing.

    All good. I for sure agree with you though. Needs will be small at first, so he should be fine for a while.
