    What host do I need ?

    I will host just a 2 pages website. The traffic will just come from Youtube. I will also create some subdomains for my autoblogs.

    Any host will do, you don't need anything specific for that apart from a few subdomains. Check the marketplace and just got for one of the cheap stickies. I use Hostamus, but I doubt you'd need offshore.

    What do you mean by what host you need?
    If you are hosting a 2 pages website you probably won't need a lot of disk space, but i don't know about bandwith, depends on how much traffic you are going to receive and how your 2 pages are build, will they have a lot of images/scripts that take a lot of usage or it's all plain css with few images.

    I would suggest you go with HostWinds, the first package is pretty cheap (Around 4$ a month i think) and you are allowed to have unlimited subdomains / bandwith / domains.

    Well, if it is only 2 pages, unless you are streaming something very large on those two pages, you won't need much.

    There are many hosts even on this website you can find for very cheap monthly, looking as you won't need much resources.

    I got a hosting from them but i get domains from a private provider. If you are not doing something really really blackhat, i guess you can go with them.

    Get something really cheap it will do the job
    Something like 25$ per year if you are not planning on using lots of CPU that is

    You can get a domain from them, but personally for liability reasons, I like to spread out my resources as much as possible. Meaning, I rather get hosting from one area, and domain from another. That way if something happens (account gets hacked or compromised), they don't have access to everything related to the website.

    Like others already said, your requests are minimal, and most of the hosting packages will be more then enough. My recommendation is Eleven2 hosting and Hawkhost, and look at marketplace section here on forum too.
    Sum you'll need monthly is $2-$5 price range..
