Please mention their URLs in this thread. A list of such companies will get me started.

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.
