    Why are you looking for THE MOST expensive web hosts out there? Is it because you think quality of service = price?

    No... I definitely do not think quality of service = more price. I just need to research them.

    So please, if anyone of you remember any web hosting companies out there which frightened you because they were too expensive, then please post their URLs here.

    I don't know who the most expensive is; but you could always try going to some of the web hosting directories and reverse-sorting by price. That would get you a higher end, if not the most expensive. It's at least a starting point.

    Several other threads around here have listed hosting directories, including the URLs.

    I can't really be more exact than that. Different people have different concepts of "too high a price" for hosting. I've had more companies frighten me off, when I was in the market, because their prices looked too low for what they were offering, and I figured that there was some sort of catch. This was back in the days (1996-1997) before I knew a whole lot about bandwidth, resources, and how some web hosts market hosting packages to look attractive. Instinct made me take a step back.

    *pauses, re-reads the dates*

    Okay, now I feel ancient. Or just strange.

    Dishonorable mention:

    Networksolutions.com - their 5-page host plan. The standard price is apparently about $130 per year but it includes a domain name. A single page is about $44/yr.

    Homestead.com - Silver plan - Standard price is $109.99/yr with $20 setup. 10 page max. No domain name permitted.
    You'll get fewer complaints from over performing than from over promising.

    Secondly, Pair.com is like the Armani of hosting :-)

    Some web designers who aren't well knowledged in the industry have prices like $20/mo for 50MB of space, I saw one site like that the other day. I wish I could remember it..

    Why would you think XO is a reseller of cnc?

    XO is the new name for Concentric Network Corp. a major corporation, if anything they are a subsidiary

    Trust me, they are not resellers.

    As far as I can see the most they charge is just over $5 / Gb, scaling down with volume...

    Should have made my post clearer - http://www.telushosting.com/packages.html

    I posted mediatemple because they're those *high end* hosting companies.

    You mean reputable and established hosts such as futurequest.net and verio.com that charge $20 for 50MB or so - These are the ones that aren't "well knowledged"?

    Pricing isn't cut and dry, the same across the board. It depends on the target audience. Some hosting companies cater to a different group of people or businesses, which makes pricing to these different groups change as well.

    For little johnny or susie's homepage and pages about everquest, $20 for 50 MB is not the right price. For the e-commerce store that sells automotive parts online, this might be right in their budget and the size that they need.
