I see hosting plans with 70$ annual with 2gb or more disk space but I dont need such thing. I prefer to pay 30$ annual for 200mb


I agree, just several hosting companies offer custom packages...

And $30 per year for 200 MB space is too expensive, I believe.

Are you serious ??? Here in Greece I pay a guy that hosts my site in a server in USA and it costs me 50 euros (more than 50$) per year for only 50mb and 1 database, no other features.

I am thinking to change, cause I see the other plans over the net and they are much much better.

panigrc, aren't you kidding about that?

It's absolutely nosense. For example, our clients pay $30 per year for package with 500 MB space, 5 GB bandwidth and Unlimited Features (email accounts, databases, etc.).

Unfortunately…here the situation in hosting/internet access reminds me the Stone Age.

I don’t want to refer in percentages and prices…

Actually, the same issue is here, in Lithuania.

It was the main reason why I started hosting my sites in USA based servers lots of times ago and when I thought it's not enough, I started web hosting company.

All I want is some service when I need it, ie. when I have a problem answer the email and help me within a reasonable time frame. I finally found a company that does that, absolutely first rate service at a very reasonable price.

I don't begrudge paying a few bucks to have access to a human being occasionally. And I don't have a lot of sympathy for people that put a critical site on the cheapest host they can find.

My 2 cents.

1. I want to talk to a person 24/7 that doesn't seem bothered that I called just to say hi, or ask them to restore the previous days copy of my db?

2. Daily backups of my db and monthly site backups. For times that I don't! Shame on me.

3. CPanel. Stop pushing home brew stuff!

4. Shared server not being so..... um shared!

5. Host multiple domain names on same account without extra charge.

6. Stop charging for extra's and just give more bandwith and space. That way I won't have to keep looking around.

7. When a host adds more to a package automatically upgrade my plan without charging or trying to extend me another year. This is a biggie for me!

8. Well thats it for now! THis cold medicines keeping me from thinking to well.

I use 3ix Resized Image to host my site.

$33 per year ($3 per month with a free month if you pay for a year)
200 Mb storage
unlimited bandwidth

I've emailed them a few times with questions and always received prompt replies.

I host with startlogic and bluehost. I like each for different reasons. However bluehost just increased their package nicely and they use cpanel. They don't however have dedicated servers should I want to pursue that.

Startlogic had a very sweat girl to talk to when I needed help.
