I was just wondering, by the way, my other account was deleted! this is bink, anyway..

I had to delete it because i didnt remember my password and the email i used to register it was changed, WHY!

Well, I'm trying to make some money with premium hosting.. it's pretty proffesional, I guess.. But the prices are good, and the speed is amazing. I don't really want to post the link in here so you guys are going to have to pop open internet explorer if you want to see it.. i'm sorry NEOWIN! love jo0.. lol, heres the addy.

Host name : DreamHost

Notable Features : Flexible plans, extensive control panel, fast and friendly support, quirky newsletters, rewarding referral program, PHP, PERL, mySQL, multiple domains and subdomains, webmail (along with POP3 and IMAP access), FTP/shell/telnet/Samba (Windows file sharing) access, and a plethora of extras.

Pros: One of the biggest reasons I've stayed with DreamHost is their inclination to randomly "upgrade" their plans to include more storage space, bandwidth, or anything thing else they find worthy. Their support system has been a pleasure to use (with a user-involved knowledge base) and I've always received fast and personal responses to any questions I've had.

Problems: The only real problems I've experienced during my two years hosting with DreamHost have been related to system upgrades or incidents that have affected the hosting community as a whole. I've never had a serious problem that went unresolved for more than an hour, if even that long. One con that some may have a problem with is that some changes take from 15 to 60 minutes to take affect due to how their system is setup (a pro to this is that it reduces server load).

Overall: I'd give DreamHost an 8/10 simply because there are a few areas I wish they would "improve" in, which mainly just involves their choice of software in some areas. Other than that I really can't say anything more than, I've been happy with them for two years and I've gotten some great discounts on hosting just by referrals.

Host name : MediaCatch Hosting

Notable Features : Cheapest web hosting I've ever seen in my life. Their

"bargain blowout plan" gives you 850MB of space, 35GB of bandwith, PHP, CGI, Unlimited webmail, POP3 mail, FTP, subdomains, autoresponders, and MySQL. 99.9% Uptime. All for $45/year, which works out to $3.75 a month

Pros: LOADS of features for VERY cheap. 850MB for under 10 bucks is unheard of with this many features. Tech support is also very good - almost always available (Not 24/7 support however). Support is toll-free phone, as well as available as E-mail support, Online Chat, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, and AiM.

Problems: I tried changing my control panel login name and PHP files stopped working on my website. Customer service was helpful though, and although they couldn't figure out what the problem is, they gladly offered to change my user name back with no hassle. Also not the fastest web server on the planet.

Overall: VERY big bang for your buck. Great for the budding web designer who could use a little extra space to experiment with new web ideas.
