    Before you guys start bashing me, let me make it clear that I am no way affiliated to this hosting company. Neither I have tested this hosting. I've seen newbies having ideas to succeed with willingness to take action, but short on budget. Maybe, this might help them. Although I don't think this hosting service would be at par with others, but it can surely give some people a launching pad to test their ideas.

    Here is the link:

    Just realized that they are resellers for Hostgator (thanks to TurkeySub) from Bangladesh (thanks to W130SN). Still, might be helpful for some, IMO.

    That's a pretty good deal for $1/year.

    I realize its only $1, but how exactly do they make enough money to even cover costs at that rate?

    Would love to see if they will even be in business for another year for you to get what you paid for...

    EDIT

    They are just a reseller of HostGator, good luck with that...

    As if you need more, they apparently aren't even using a legit SSL -https://clients.bytebull.com/cart.php?gid=6

    I'm sure it is a loss leader... get you in the door and hope that at one time you graduate to a better product that they are offering.
