    Cheers for this OP! Now that I got tonnes of high quality expired domains I've been looking for well priced hosting for PBN building. Bookmarked.

    I have a question tho... is it all just hosting for static sites? Like just hosting straight html/css/javascript with Apache? That's all I'm really after. Can't imagine anyone offering hosting for anything like wordpress etc this cheap.

    Almost all of these have softaculous and offer joomla, wordpress or any other application which can be installed according to resources.

    My favorite is https://www.webxen.com/ because they are offering 10GB of space for $10 per year which is more than enough for hosting many WordPress or Joomla sites.

    That package is not listed on their website I took this from a forum: http://www.webxen.com/brain/cart.php?a=add&pid=5

    You are right. For PBN's these hosts are great. Just make sure that you don't land on those hosts which have same provider or server. :p It happens with low quality hosts. Some times you register with providers and see that both of these are using the same server. :D

    Really that means its just the same host right? Or extremely likely to be. Either that or its just a reseller. I like to have my stuff really well silo'd, so generally I'll host where I can have dedicated hosting but the price is a bit more expensive.

    But dedicated hosting for PBN is not affordable. How many dedicated servers you will get? Your cost will be higher than benefits you get from PBN.

    Why for $8.95 when godaddy offer $0.99 :p
    But my godaddy account already uses so many 0.99 .com coupons that it's not allowing more. I think I should create a new account, but what about using the same credit card? Will it work?

    Haha dunno why I never even thought to use coupons for that shit. This thread has really got my brain ticking. I think my PBN cost just came down by about 10x.

    Any other providers offer coupons? Or, go get a different credit card from every bank in your area. 99c domain + $1/mo hosting can have PBN site for $11 per year. That's pretty awesome. Can build 10 site PBN for just over $100. Not bad.

    I also found http://www.webcrow.jp/ which do hosting for about a dollar a month (I guess depends on currency conversion rate). Looks like they have a generous free plan too. I like the sound of that. I've got a Japanese project that I need a solid PBN for but will net a tonne of cash if done right. Thanks to this thread I also questioned my use of godaddy on getting .jp domain names and found I can get em for half the price through onamae.com

    Also, what about hosting offers that offer a free domain name when you pay for a hosting plan? If you calculate the total cost maybe those work out alright? But you also have to factor in the cost after the first year.

    It's only $5 a month and I silo my projects so if I have 3 dedicated servers at $5/mo I can put a pbn site on each server for each project. So the cost is $15 but I've got 9 sites total. It's a little trickier to manage but security is a lotttttttt better than cheap shared hosting.

    Haha Godaddy coupons are great and I think now I should go and get cards from all banks. :p I don't think there is any other provider who offers .com for $0.99 if there is any, they will not open this offer for long time like Godaddy. They always have some coupons for domain below $2.

    I think for a PBN, those providers who offer domain+hosting are good choice if price is around $20 to $30 per year. But yes, there are some providers who have terms. They won't allow you to transfer that domain unless you pay them transfer fee, which can be around $10 to $30 per domain. This will be a real pain when you need to transfer your domain. That's why I always buy domains separately.

    By the way, who offers dedicated server for $5 per month? o_O Are you talking about VPS? Like vultr is offering VPS for $5. That's also great. They charge on hourly basis. So no matter if you have $5 in your account, you can still deploy 10 VPS :D and add balance later when $5 are going to finish.

    I use digitalocean a lot and their smallest tier is $5. Top quality too. I think Linode is
    around the same price tho I haven't tried them.

    Yes DigitalOcean is great with top quality and uptime. I have not used Linode so can't say any thing about them I have some experience with DigitalOcean and Vultr for some projects. But currently I don't have any vps with these.
