    Hi guys I'm looking for an offshore hosting service that will be good for a Game site like:
    Code:
    http://www.freegamesonline.com/
    Does anyone know any good one?
    Also does anyone know how much bandwidth does a game site take each month?

    Thank you guys :)

    bandwidth depends entirely on what kind of content you are hosting. If you host the flash files on your server then your bandwidth will go through the roof on a popular page.

    I agree with skuxta, 1and1 is a pathetic host.

    Your bandwidth will vary wildly, depending on the types of games your going to be hosting.

    If you planning on using big flash games, your bandwidth to visitor ratio is going to be very high.

    Regarding an offshore host, the only advice I can give you is to look around for bulletproof hosts

    I had hosting services with 1and1 and to tell you the truth they did not treat me right, their costumer service sucks... and they took all my domains for no reason after being with them for 2 weeks and told me that i did not follow the rules while i was so busy designing the website that i never ftp it...

    Thanks lokiceo ill look into it
