    Hello,

    I'm signed up for hostgator now. Got their first month free promo. And now they're asking me so pay $10 for my next month. The problem is, i haven't got that enough money to pay it since i haven't been making enough on IM lately.

    Anyway, I would like to ask you guys what you recommend for a cheap webhost. Probably at least $6 a month with good tech support and fast servers. Since i'm from the Philppines, i get timed out a lot on FTP. Also, Unlimited bandwith, space and addon domains is good.


    Thank you guys so much. And i hope you could help me :)

    I love ultra web hosting. Cost was something like $140 for 4 years when I signed up last year! Comes to something like $3-4 per month! Hope that helps.

    Thank you teeniegenie. Although im looking for a host that i do not need to sign up for a subscription or anything. like 1 year hosting or what. i just need it on a per month basis.

    Hi,

    Check out either fatcow or ipage

    I have used both and as good as the rest. The later has very little bad press compared to the other big players.

    Good luck

    Unfortunatly, I've noticed most 1.99 webhosting plans require something crazy, like a 5 year bulk order lol. You can try doing some reviews on IM reportcard for some extra cash, then just hope your work pays off so you can afford your hosting :)

    I found myself in the same boat as you. Is Blogger an option for you? That's what I decided to use for now.

    I'm faced with this same problem. I'm looking for a per-month basis. Btw, does hostgator allow paying on a per month basis?

    I used arvixe for a year. But then i got really sick because i get timed out a lot on my FTP. SO i changed.

    Hostgator has a per month basis however, it's over $10 on their baby plan.

    I'm looking in dualrack.com and check it out. Anybody has experience with them?

    There are alot of cheap hosting providers. Just gotta search around for them and do alittle research.

    Couple notable mentions:
    burstdotnet 6 dollar VPS'
    knownhost

    webhostingtalk forums has a bunch of cheap ones advertised, just do some research. Also remember that webhosting does have something to do with SERP results, so keep that in mind.

    Ahhh. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Well, if you are looking for something long term, Ultra is great.
