Cheap hosting for non-commerce sites

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View


I have done some simple political and advocacy sites in the past.  I
don't need major traffic or bandwidth, or e-commerce, or perfect
uptime.  May need blog, plus flat content of course.  I'd like to find
a host with minimal space and bandwidth (but that will stay in
business) for about $30 a year.

I've used page-zone the last couple times around.  Their downtime and
flakiness over the last couple months has scared me off of them and
it's still going on, see:

I saw a mention here of, but they're dead.

I used to use Dayana and think I will go back to them unless someone
has a better  suggestion.

Thank you !

I've been very pleased with Crystal Tech ( ).  An
organization I'm with has had a site with them for a few years and the
tech support and uptime have been excellent.  My personal site with
them is at their lowest rate of $2.95/month.  They are not a cut-rate
operation and in all my dealings with them they have come across as
very professional and stable.

Statistics means never having to say you're certain.

The host I've been using since leaving MIS has been good so far, they
have a $25 a year plan with

120mb space
1500mb transfer
php (but no mysql)

I'm sure there's others with things like mysql and whatnot for near
that price, but I haven't noticed much (or any really) downtime yet
with them.

Do my site qualifies for this offer.

I had asked about page-zone and mooseisloose, which are either down or
were down for way too long recently.

Thank you all for the input.

Here's the ones I've rounded up fwiw - I have posted this on 2 threads
in this group just to be a prick, not really, just cause I spent half
an hour and maybe it'll save someone else a half an hour.  I've not
used any of these except Dayana, which I never had a problem with
(unlike page-zone).  I have no connection to any of these.

First bunch can meet the requirements of $25/domain/year for 'n'
domains, they offer blog tools, and enough space to actually store some
$79, 1-n domains, 1 free domain, WordPress/b2Evo, 30 gb space
$94 for 1 year commitment, 1-n domains, Easyapps installer, 5 gb space

This bunch do not meet the above criteria:
$25/year, 1 domain, Fantastico (but no mySQL, which is needed for
b2evo, at this price point), 120 mb space
$4.99/year, 1 domain, no apps, 100 mb space
$15/year, 1 domain, blogs/cms, 10 mb space !
$39/year, 1 domain, no blog tools, 2 gb space
