I would warn against using www.xtreme-webhosting.net
Things started out ok for a month or so, but then the largest host
downtime I've ever experienced. 1 out of every 3 days my site was
offline. On asking support why, I was just ignored.
They are cheap $25 a year for their basic account, but in the end I
realised you get what you pay for.
Even their own website went down usually. They don't bother telling
customers when their hosting is offline, even direct questions are
ignored. They tend to sweep their problems under the carpet and think
that if they don't talk about the downtime with customers then it
"magically" never happened!!!
Anyway good luck if you're already with them!

Yeah $25/year doesnt pay for much. What kindof support could you expect to
get if you pay $25 for a year of it.
What did you get? Was the $25/year the only thing that drew you to them? I
take it for granted that this came with massive restrictions on storage and
bandwidth? Im not being sarcastic. I mean if it had good things going for
it such as a domain registration came with that, or lots of storage, or
lots of bandwidth, emails, cgi library, whatever... then I could recommend
how to make use of that by splitting your site to someplace that does the
other things really well.
