    You can pay hostgator.com by the month. I use them and never had a problem with them. They are $9.95 a month for USD. They have hostgator India and other countries but I don't know what they charge. They do have live chat though and you can ask there.

    You are not going to get it that cheap. If you can not pay for hosting, find something to do before you starve.

    Look for hostgator promo. They run an offer with 0.01c hosting for first month.

    For $2/month you might be able to get a good deal with amateur hosting companies but the problem with those remains like a hanging sword all the time (i.e. they close business all of a sudden and you lose your site/data).

    Do the hostgator for a penny for the first month. Go in the hostgator live chat and ask what the coupon code for that is. Then worry about the $9.95 next month. Maybe by next month you will have it.

    The issue is guys that I think he wants to pay monthly. Most of the low cost hosts do not allow monthly hosting. Hell I do not even allow that and I only charge $3.25 a month.

    Well hosting for $2 won't be something serious so i think the free hosting would be around the same level as the $2 hosting both will have bugs in there probably.
    So instead of paying $2 per month would be a better idea to try first hosting for free.

    Free hosting is shit. They can (and in many cases will) take your hosting away at will because they can under their TOS. It's like the "free" domain names - not worth it.

    $2 is pretty low, and your hosting is a critical part of the game - goog values your site's load time pretty highly, uptime is important for the image of your site, and so forth.

    I'd think about going with the hostgator promo where it's just 1 cent for the first month based on what you've described.

    Hostamus is a good one. They offer a 1 GB package for $3.99. I really wouldn't go any cheaper. I tried those very cheap offers out, but they either lacked at customer service or the servers were slow as hell. But yeah what can you expect for $1? I guess not much. I wouldn't do it again, better pay a bit more but get a reliable website and a good customer service. You never know what's going to happen and if you are unable to reach the customer service if you really need them, you are pretty much screwed.

    I'd have to say hostgator also... I have a few accounts with them and never had any issues, and support is always available. They have a special running now, around $8 month-to-month for unlimited... something to think about if you have or ever need to host multiple domains, you'd already be set.

    Hope that helps,
