You know, stuff like this kills me. I mean look at that home page. $50 says they aren't using anything close to the servers pictured there. Their probably using old p3 boxes with a bunch of hard drives. Hahaha. SOrry just had to say something.

rofl more like a c64 :) with a 14.4kb/s modem

personally i think it's either really poor quality, coupled with bad service. or someone typo'd when they made the site.

and why is the dollor a month one in red, red for danger?

You can tell that what you're looking at is bull, because of one reason: Unlimited bandwidth. Its just not possible to have unlimited, as the more bandwidth you use the more money the host (and you) would have to pay.

I want to suggest an alternative: http://www.yrhost.com. You can get a $10 a year plan.... or a $125 a year plan, its up to you on that one.

I have been with yrhost for almost a year. They run 3 servers from a Data Center in Houston, and aren't running it from their bedroom :p

my host is free :/ sure i dont get a domain, and it doesn't support php. but i do get unlimited bandwidth with them, but i'd guess thats due to it being part of my isp.

At last, I hear the words of a wise man! Everyone bow down before this fella, he knows way more than some do here. I salute you, you're my hero now!

You can test the 'unlimitedness' of bandwidth by uploading Pamela Anderson's porn videos and see in how many seconds your account will be closed - not because it's porn files, but because your ISP's pocket will start emptying with every Mb of info downloaded by anxious teens :) Now, that might be exxageration, and one account won't get noticed, but if there is a considerable number - I can bet my... anything, they will be shut down.

NTL wouldn't even notice, they have suck bad service :/
course mabye if it was illegal stuff on there, but the thing is i've tested it to see if it has a limit like other hosts i've tried, it never seems to die out on me, there's not set limit i'll hit. and it suits me just fine.
