    everyone recommends bluehost for MNS. i just found iPage which is only 3.50 a month for unlimited everything. are they a good host to use? half the price of bluehost.

    They only offer 25GB of bandwidth/month. I've talked to the support and they admitted it. Check their TOS. Also, I believe their $1/year hosting promo is still up so you may check that out if you really like them. Search it here in BHW and you'll find it.

    If you go with iPage, you could expect your site to go down daily.

    it was my first hosting provider. Note that I didnt use anything before it, it was my FIRST hosting service I tried.

    and guess what? I managed to refund my money within 2 days of using their service. Note that this was 3 years ago...

    their website panel was lagging like %#$&!!!!

    They are the worst in the hosting business. I had to work twice as hard on SEO to compensate for their speed.

    IPage works if you are using HTML sites but if you are using WP sites, forget it!

    If you reject what everyone is telling you in this thread, your IM life will become a dizzying recurrence of 500 Internal Server Errors.
