    Best offers at the moment?

    Hi All, Ive been searching for a host and did a quick comparison of the offers on at the mo:-

    1and1 - 4.99 for 9 months, 0 for 3 months = 44.91 for a year.
    Includes 1.5GB and 1 domain name and 12 pages

    Fasthosts - 4.99 for 9 months, 2.49 for 3 months = 52.33
    Includes 2GB, no domain name

    BT - 2.99 for 12 months, was 5 = 35.88
    Includes 5GB and 1 domain name and unlimited pages

    Streamline - 5.99 for 9 months, 2.99 for 3 months = 62.88
    Includes domain name and unlimited webspace

    Interesting! Nice to know there are lots of deals out there.

    Don't streamline have a 50% sale at the minute? (i'm sure they have an advert plastered all over the .net magazine saying so!).

    Not as good as the advert makes it sound then.

    i wouldn't advise 1&1 - I used to have domains with them and they gave me such a headache when I wanted to transfer out - yahoo was the same

    can't comment on the others since I have no exp with them. but you should sit down and take a look at how much space and bandwidth you need and work on a budget - then shop around the offers section. just don't go for the cheapest offers with the largest space and bandwidth deals - you could be falling into a trap

    good luck

    So far I have heard that 1&1 are really good at their support and general services. Also quite a few people have put forward UK2 when I have enquired about web hosting and the like so you may want to have a meander over to their site and see what offers they have I hear theres quite a few of them. Equally you can also look in the hosting offers part of WHT im sure there are plently of people thatll gladly give you a decent deal with everything you'd get with an international company.

    I have heard the opposite.

    Either way, I would worry less about the price, and more about the quality. Also, most sites use less than 1 GB, so I would not let high amounts of disk space be a factor in choosing.

    You should search reviews before buying hosting service or experience them yourself.

    It is advisable to do your homework before signing up with any host.

    I would stay away from 1and1. Their control panel is not good. Sites load very slow (when I was with them two years ago)

    Cheap, is not necessarily reliable, secure, or accomodating.

    Agree with some of the fellow members in this aspect. You should not decide only by looking at offers; if you are interested in quality service. You must check about the providers first and then only comes the offers IMO.
